Even the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure didn’t slow action on another very busy Sunday in online poker yesterday.

The Atlantis lobby overflowed with grinders looking to make a huge score with all their friends watching live. 

Once again the PokerStars Sunday Million dwarfed the other tournaments with 8,427 players.

There were numerous pros on hand for the event and Joe Cada, who played the PCA the day before, even managed to make a small cash.

Well-known online poker player Phil “USCphildo” Collins was the biggest name to make the final table.

Collins' tournament came to an end when he made an ill-timed shove with K-J. Shortly after Collins was eliminated the remaining four players made a deal that saw them leave $30,000 for the winner.

Roydon Rock would be the overall winner taking down $158k for first place.

The PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up attracted 4,657 players with Lars “Dsavo” Bonding eventually taking it down for $127k. Amazingly it’s the second time Bonding has won the Sunday Warm-Up in the last four weeks.

Bonding also made the Sunday Million final table in October.

The PokerStars 500 felt the effect of the PCA more than any other tournament on Sunday and with 896 players there was a small overlay.

slimshaggy took advantage of the value and won $90,000 for first place.

Meanwhile over on Full Tilt Poker the $750k Guaranteed had 4,045 runners with noted pro Mike “GoLeafsGo” Leah taking second place for $100k. sasodiits took $128k for first place.

The Sunday Brawl had 2,701 entrants with November Niner John Dolan making the final table and winning $18k for coming in sixth place. Crocofantos took first place for $109k.

On UB Poker there were 940 players in $200k Guaranteed, which online player THREN took down for $38,000.
