Well, that was a weekend and half, wasn’t it? Big live tournaments, huge online tournaments, and members of Team PokerStars Pro raking in the big bucks.
Not only did we have a startling good European Poker Tour event going on in Deauville, it gave us the potential for our first-ever double EPT winner. If you’re reading this on Monday, there is still a chance to see whether Mike “Timex” McDonald repeats as EPT champion. Check out the EPT Deauville final table live updates to keep up with the action.
In the weekend tournaments, we had our own big winner to talk about, in the form of Team PokerStars Pro Juan Antonio Maceiras Barros, known online as vietcong01. He took down the Sunday Million for $255,954. Read about in Jen Newell’s 1-24-10 Sunday Million final table report.
A bit earlier in the night, ROHR took down the Sunday Warm-Up for $119,548. Read all about it in John Hartness’ 1-24-10 Sunday Warm-Up report.
As if that’s not enough, we have to mention Team PokerStars Pro Hevad Khan taking down yet another big weekend tournament on PokerStars, in this case last night’s $215-R NLHE event. Fellow Team PokerStars Pro J.C. Alvarado finished just a few spots behind. They all joined Greg Raymer, George Danzer, and Darus Suharto with weekend final table finishes.

Congrats to all of this week’s big winners.
