PokerStars' flagship tournament, the $215 Sunday Million, was played on as usual last weekend and the $1 million guaranteed prize pool was easily topped yet again, despite the fact that many of the players are in Las Vegas for the WSOP at the moment.

After a total of 4,820 registered players + 1,210 re-entries, the final prize pool for the tournament ended up being $1,206,000. This time, Luke "lb6121" Schwartz, took down the tournament for over $130,000 payday.

In addition to his Sunday Million victory, Schwartz has won five SCOOP events on PokerStars, three of them in the last two years.

Schwartz has currently over $1,3 million in live tournament cashes, and over $2 million in online tournament cashes. His latest live cash is from 2013, when he finished in 249th place in the WSOP Main Event for over $37,000. It appears, that the British pro has been focusing playing online recently and his results have been good so far.
