First up for fans of the newest big-money poker site was the Sunday 215 Opener, the guarantee almost doubled as 32 players chased €13,400.

With the top 5 all securing four-figure payouts, 3rd place went to the aptly-named TheBluffer who bagged €2010 for his efforts.

Heads-up for the first title of the day saw fish2019 overcome brenowlol and walk off with €4958, an excellent ROI to start the day with.

2 brenowlol €2,948

The BIG Sunday fields comprised a decent mix of pros, grinders and recs – roughly half of the players satelliting their way in, or making it via the HighStakes leaderboard races.

The Sunday 215 proper also exceeded its guarantee, and TheBluffer was in the money yet again, this time 7th spot and €864 the result.

The winner, taking the trophy and €3024, was drunkenBR – a player who featured among the prizes several times in the August BIG Sunday.

The Sunday 650 was on the schedule for the first time, with a €10,800 prizepool and 18 runners.

Riverbust made it to the money, a 4th place and €1620 reward for his fine play, while fish2019 showed great consistency with a 3rd spot finish and €2610.

There can be only one winner at a time in poker, of course, and it was Bryan 'BOOMswitch' Paris who landed the top prize, €4320, with FatsoWinmuch receiving €2700 for 2nd
