The Online Poker Weekend - Cimbolas, Hunichen Win Majors

This past weekend may have been Easter weekend, but all that meant for a number of professional players out there was more poker-playing time. Some of them did cash in on their weekend efforts too: Matas Cimbolas and Chris Hunichen both ended up winning majors and taking down big money. Of course, it also helped that PokerStars put a bunch of massive poker tournaments on the weekend schedule. Cimbolas' win came in the Sunday 500. After a 3-way deal at the top, Cimbolas walked away with $51.7k, so his weekend haul was not a shabby one at all.
Interestingly, due to the terms of the said deal, in that event, Brazil's "nicofellow' was the biggest winner: his share of the prize-pool tipped the scale at $56.1k. The other player involved in the3-way deal was Russia's "StaceOP", who took down $44.8k for his efforts.

Chris Hunichen's win came in the $109 Sunday Kickoff, netting him a $26.9k prize.
The biggest profit of the weekend went to the winner of the Sunday Million though, as usual. Brazil's Joao Otavio was the one who walked away with the big one. His haul totaled some $213.7k, a well-deserved reward indeed, after he survived a field of 7,124 opponents. The one he defeated heads-up for the title was "extragloves" from Canada, whose share of the prize-pool was thus $157.2k.
PokerStars wasn't the only good destination for tournament action over the weekend. At Full Tilt Poker, Jonas Mackoff played hard in the Sunday Brawl, busting no fewer than 11 players on his way to victory. He scooped up $6.44k. The Sunday Major was won by Matt Wakeman, whose haul was $10.4k.
