From a guy who just moved eleven years of accumulated junk from one house to another, let me assure you, moving sucks in just about every way. I’ve found my underwear and shoes, but I’m still looking for a lot of stuff. Let’s just say, those service station signs that read “No shirt, no shoes, no service” are getting to be a tougher proposition every day. Fortunately, it’s a lot easier to move a poker tournament than three bedrooms full of life detritus.
As you’re probably aware, this was moving weekend on PokerStars. All of the Sunday majors had their start times moved up by two hours. To celebrate, PokerStars doubled the guarantees of many of your favorite tournaments. Here’s how the prize pools ended up looking at the end of the day.
Moving weekend double guarantee results
Among those tourneys was the $1 million Sunday Warm-Up which drew 5,456 players for an 11am start time. When it was over, kojocki had cut a deal for a $155,867 first prize. Martin Harris has the story in kojocki KOs competition to claim 6/5/11 Sunday Warm-Up.
For double the fun, the Sunday Million was guaranteeing $2 million yesterday. More than 10,000 people showed up for the big event, including the philosophic Diogene who picked up $284,798 for the win. Jen Newell has the story: Diogene dodges trouble and wins $284,798.56 in June 5 Sunday Million.

In the world of offline poker, we can’t let the day go by without one more shout of congratulations to Team PokerStars Pro Eugene Katchalov who picked up his first WSOP bracelet over the weekend. Nice work, Eugene.
Finally, as you get ready to start you week, we’d like to send our best wishes and good luck out to both Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier and our friend Bernard Lee. Both are re-startting the final table of the WSOP No-Limit Deuce-to-Seven event this afternoon. Good luck, guys.
