That illustrious trio hit the cash in the High Roller Sunday Masters on partypoker, the $1050 buy-in tournament attracting 154 entries and adding a few $ to the $150k guarantee.

The final two tables was a who’s who of the partypoker high stakes MTT crushers, fromHolland1945, PayAndPlay and SunTzu all busting in the money, with Daniel 'Junglemandan' Cates outlasting them for an 11th place worth $3418.

Paul Newey, the billionaire founder of Ocean Finance and one of poker’s strongest amateur players, cashed for the same amount under his topdollarman account.

partypoker ambassador Patrick Leonard came close to finishing off an excellent week, his deep run ending in 3rd place for an $18,480 payout.

That left Kroat.. and Coaching heads-up for the Masters title, a deal seeing the former take the win and $30,673, his opponent also making $30k for a great run.

The High Roller Sunday Big Game on the red diamond site was bang on target with 100 entries at $5200 apiece, the $500k guarantee again drawing in the biggest and best.

CalmDownMan managed an 8th place finish to pocket $16,250, but the six-figure 1st prize went to kristian150, edging out Lone1 to scoop $122,500.

Over on ACR, the US-facing site saw 210 entries to their $200k GTD Sunday biggie, the $1050 buy-in tournament paying out 36 players.

The top five were looking at five-figure cashes, and CrossfireX bagged the first of those, a $12,600 payday.

Hephallump and paltex took the next two spots, and that left PabloB and Coccobatto to fight for their share of over $75k.

Coccobatto won out, pocketing $47,250, while his opponent took $28,350 for the runner-up finish.

The Sunday Special smashed its guarantee yet again, the prizepool this time hitting $175,000 after 877 entries appeared for the $215 buy-in tournament.

That meant there was $50k above the guarantee to splash out on 99 cashers, with more than $30k waiting up top for the winner.

NoMoneyNoHoney1 now has both after a sweet 5th place run worth $9,120, with BoomSauce taking 4th for a touch over $13k. When Yura_Bin fell in 3rd, for $17,364, it left jerbi9999 and CreateMyOwnEnergy to fight it out heads-up for the win.

The latter prevailed, taking $32,185 for the victory, with jerbi’s runner-up spot worth $22,977.
