The King is riding his horse while updating his visitorsDario Minieri capped off with a phenomenal week of poker with perhaps one of the most impressive one-day performances ever.

You have probably heard of Dario or at least seen him on TV. He is a Team Pokerstars Player and was prominently featured on this year's World Series of Poker main event telecast. He is probably best known for wearing a scarf at the World Series of Poker and dusting off a huge chipstack in record time.

Anyways, before Sunday, Dario Minieri had been absolutely owning the $5600 No Limit Hold'em Heads Up Turbo SNG's on Pokerstars. Owning would be an understatement. Over his last 2300 SNG's on the site, Dario has realized a profit of over $450,000, with a great deal of those profits coming in the last week.

On Sunday "dariominieri" had a day for the ages on Pokerstars. Say what you want about him, but his results from Sunday will be pretty hard to top over a similar 24 hour period.

He won $50k in the High Stakes Showdown, beating out an extremely competitive field that included the likes of Barry Greenstein, Sorel Mizzi and Chris "Genius28" Lee.

He also took down the very tough $215 rebuy $150k guaranteed tournament for just over $56k.

Then, as if that weren't enough, he chopped the Sunday $5200 Freezeout event on Pokerstars for $50k. Again, the competition was extremely fierce in this field as well, featuring the likes of Darrell Dicken, Chris Lee and Barry Greenstein.

Dario also finished 42nd in the Sunday Million.

Three VERY tough tournaments and Dario won them all in one day. Whether you hate him or love him, you have to admit that this is one of the most impressive one-day feats ever in online poker. To win the $5200 Freezeout, High Stakes Showdown and $215 Rebuy in the same day is just ridiculous.
