Canada’s Marc “FrenchDawg” Ladouceur enjoyed a profitable Sunday this week thanks to taking down the $700 Super Sized Sunday at PokerStars. Ladouceur came out on top of a field of 644 players in the progressive bounty tournament, netting $37,170.35 in prize money and an additional $23,142.95 in bounty payments.

Although impressive, Ladouceur’s haul was not the largest of the weekend, that honor went to Austria’s “WestCliff21” who triumphed in the Sunday Million, outlasting 4,914 opponents to get his hands on a massive $144,335.70 score.
