Sunday Briefing: Allan “Bigdaft” Peers Wins More Than $76K
Allan “Bigdaft” Peers had a superb weekend at the virtual felt, one that saw him more than double his previous largest cash when he finished second in the Sunday Warm-Up at PokerStars.
In March 2014, Peers won the $125,000 Mega Deep at 888poker for a then career-best score of $32,928, a tournament that he won six months early. Now Peers can brag of a $68,173.50 score thanks to his runner-up finish in the latest Sunday Warm-Up.
In the early hours of Sunday morning, Peers finished second in PokerStars Bigger $162 for $6,525 and went on to reach the money places in three other events, bringing his Sunday winnings to more than $76,000. Top work, sir.
Also having decent cashes on PokerStars this Sunday were the likes of “TheMuppet” who finished fifth in the Sunday Rebuy for $13,959.75; Mat “Matfrankland” Frankland who came 13th in the Sunday Rebuy for $2,260.15; “jtexaspoker” and his 14th place finish in the Sunday 500 for $3,268.25; while “mpstrav” collected an impressive $29,259.04 by finishing third in the Sunday Supersonic and Martin “susie00” Malone banked $20,808.58 after a three way chop in the Sunday 6-Max before finishing second to Team PokerStars Pro Matthias de Meulder.
Over at PokerStars’ sister site Full Tilt Poker, Ireland’s Gavin “biggus dikus” O’Rourke reached the final table of The Sunday Brawl before falling in eighth place for $2,923.20.
Following in the footsteps of Peers and Malone mentioned above, “MrKeylow” finished second in the 888poker Whale tournament and netted himself $32,627.50 and London’s Andrey “Andy.69.Nuts” Veselof was runner-up in the $100,000 Mega Deep for $19,883.
Rob “RTinnion” Tinnion final tabled the same $100,000 Mega Deep and finished ninth for $2,291.60.
Although not an online tournament, we have to give a round of applause to Sam Razavi who continued his domination of live poker tournaments in Asia with a win in a $300 side event at the Asian Poker Tour (APT) Cambodia festival for $4,300 and is now almost 400 points clear in the APT Player of the Year race. Congratulations, boss!
