A round-up of the results on PokerStars this weekend…
• ‘chrism189’ wins Fintan and Spraggy’s #PlatinumAdventure, heading to the Bahamas
• Caio “caiohey” Hey wins Sunday Million for $165K
• Micro Millions Main Event moves on to Day 2
• All the big winners from the weekend
Chris ‘chrism189’ Martin is your latest Platinum Pass winner, having outlasted 77 other players last night to win the Grand Finale of Fintan and Spraggy’s #PlatinumAdventure live on Twitch.
Martin, a friend of the stream, won his entry over the past few weeks in one of the weekly contests – as did every other player in the tournament. They all gathered last night to play down to a winner in a good old fashioned NLHE tournament.
When Martin found himself heads-up versus ‘pop a manu g’, he had a chip lead. However, this pot evened things up:
But as Spraggy tells us in this next clip, Martin grinded him back down to 100,000 in chips and all the money went in shortly after that:
For second place, ‘pop a manu g’ won a Sunday Million package that gives him buy-ins to the weekly tournament for the rest of the year. He reached out to Fintan on Twitter:
Unreal mate. Let us know if you get any runs going when we're grinding and we'll get on the rail. https://t.co/gqfWfFxb6H

But the biggest congratulations has to be reserved for our winner, Chris Martin, who wins a $30,000 package to the Bahamas. Come January, he’ll be competing in the $25,000 buy-in PokerStars Players Championship.

The Sunday Million is a long tournament, and often produces lengthy heads-up duels between the final two players.
Not last night though, as it took Brazil’s Caio ‘caiohey’ Hey just ten minutes to defeat his fellow Brazilian (Pseudo Fruto) heads-up for the title and $165,250.47. No deal was made.
The final table saw a tough line-up which also included third-place finisher Stephen “woody1234321” Woodhead. To read how it all went down, click here.
The $22 Micro Millions Main Event kicked off last night with an incredible 63,817 entries (49,945 unique, 13,872 re-entries). After 34 levels of play, Day 1 came to an end with just 555 players remaining.
They’ll all return at 7pm WET today to play it out, all hoping to win the enormous $120,951 first-place prize. All of them are currently guaranteed $166.94 for their efforts.
Uzbekistan’s ‘fishara.uz1’ leads the pack with 4,649,293, and blinds will be 17.5K/35K (3.5K ante).
