Jamie “Dustitutes” Clossick was one of the biggest winners online this weekend thanks to him navigating his way to a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Sunday Million.

Clossick’s largest cash at PokerStars was $16,417 until this weekend. That was his reward for a third-place finish in a MicroMillions event in 2014, but now he can brag of a $121,287 score thanks to this amazing result.

“AAgoodfold” was another British player to make it to the final table of the Sunday Million, he fell in fourth-place for $58,593. The final three players agreed upon a deal for the remaining prize pool once AAgoodfold was out of the way, a deal that left an additional $25,000 for the eventual champion. Sadly for Clossick, he couldn’t quite get over the finishing line and bust in second-place, which left “TYStacks2” of Sweden to win his second Sunday Million title.

Some of the other notable scores in PokerStars’ Mar. 11 tournaments included:

  • “megalodoNkk” – runner-up in the $215 Sunday Warm-Up for $30,180
