This weekend marked another strong showing for online poker tournaments, as most of the Sunday majors were well-attended events. Between Party Poker, iPoker, and Bwin, it seems the European sites are doing quite well for themselves. While they may never catch up to PokerStars, they are all providing ample competition for the #2 overall spot. Bwin and Party Poker continue to battle for the biggest non-PokerStars event, as both eclipsed the $250,000 prize pool mark on Sunday. These quarter-million prize pools may have been seen as small a few years ago, but are now some of the biggest tournaments running each week.

PokerStars continues to thrive in its run towards the 2012 Spring Championship of Online Poker.  The event, which begins in May, should be one of the biggest tournament series ever. For more information on SCOOP 2012, be sure to stay tuned to the FTR Poker News Section.  This past weekend, the Sunday Million at Stars once again reigned supreme. With its prize pool consistently back in the $1.5M range, it’s only a matter of time before the guarantee is upped from just $1,000,000.  As the 1-year anniversary of online poker’s Black Friday quickly approaches, the thriving of the Million is certainly something to celebrate. What seemed like a day that could end poker, has now just become a blip on a map. With promising news about interstate poker in the United States coming out every day, it seems it is only a matter of time before Americans are back in the fold.  When that happens, online events will become bigger and better than ever.
