Weekend Review: Winners galore on Double Vision Sunday

December 22, 2014

As Sunday night turned into the Monday morning commute, Double Vision Sunday came to an end, crowning a few extra weekend winners along the way.

If you hadn’t already noticed, this past weekend featured two Sunday Kickoffs, two Sunday Warm-Ups, two Sunday Storms and two Sunday Millions on PokerStars, all part of Double Vision Sunday, which in turn forms part of the December Festival. It meant some $3.8 million was guaranteed across a day of action, with each of the headline tournaments running a standard 9-max format as well as an additional 6-max.

Such was the popularity of this schedule that the guarantee was shattered. There was closer to $5 million at stake when the numbers were added up, the biggest of all coming from the Sunday Million, with a prize pool of $1,484,000, won by Pablo “Rhyno2008” Nerro, from Uruguay, who took the biggest share $217,717.64.

As you can read in Kristen Bihr’s report, Nerro graduated from the MicroStakes podium to the biggest online podium of all, and in convincing fashion, overcoming one of the favourites Jon “apestyles” Van Fleet (who would finish third) along the way.
