We’ll kick off our roundup with Americas CardRoom, the US-facing site’s $215 buy-in Sunday Special pulling in 889 entries that saw the $125k GTD tournament dish out $177,800 from the total prizepool.

There was $32k+ up top to chase, with 99 players in the money, and four 5-figure payouts at the final table, ACR reg DamianLillard grabbing the first of those for a $13,246 payday in 4th spot.

When CrossfireX fell in 3rd for $17,602, it left LappyPoker and Acabou o recreio to fight heads-up for first, and the winner was only too happy to tweet out his success…

There was even more to play for in the $1050 buy-in $200k GTD, with 223 runners adding a chunk to the prizepool.

The final featured quite a few of the site’s top highstakes grinders, with StannisLives grabbing $16,167 in 4th place, and hephallump taking 3rd for $21,185.

That meant Palau77 and LETSFKNGO were heads-up for the win, and it was Palau77 who came through to pocket the $47,945 victor’s cash, with $29,547 for the runner-up.

Over on the red diamond site, the partypoker High Roller Sunday Big Game hit its $500k GTD target exactly with 100 runners.

Daniel 'Junglemandan' Cates ran deep, though he eventually fell in 12th spot for $12,500, while highstakes reg Greenstone25 made it to 4th place for a $43,750 Sunday cash.

NewYorkJimmY is another regular in the biggest partypoker MTTs, grabbing 3rd place and $62,500 this time around, leaving skitzo7932 and BaBaDeBaBa to battle for more than $200k between them.

There would be no deal, though, and eventually BaBaDeBaBa prevailed, lifting the Big Game title and $122,500, with skitzo7932 taking a massive $87,500 consolation prize.

Next up, the $125k GTD High Roller Sunday Masters, the $1050 buy-in seeing the guarantee smashed with 149 entries.

AndreyBolkonsky preformed his usual Sunday deep run, finishing 4th for a $12,665 cash, while Coaching went one better with 3rd place and $17,880 to show for it.

BuddyRW and FLYZIONFLY opted for a heads-up deal, Buddy taking the win and an extra few $, both players pocketing almost $30k.

We’ll be back again next Monday with our usual pick of the online grind crop, but until then, good luck at the tables!
