The recent trend of British poker players dominating the PokerStars Sunday Million continued this week thanks to Scott “Aggro Santos” Margereson walking away with top honours and a massive $194,479.20 payout.
Despite winning just shy of $200,000 in this latest win – the 92nd of his career according to his PocketFives profile – this isn’t Margereson’s largest cash because in September 2014, the lad from Chesterfield (now residing in Mexico) won the WCOOP edition of the Sunday Warm-Up for a wallet-bursting $244,175.
Margereson was joined in the final table by two fellow British players. "JIMMY5BELLYS" bust in fourth place for $70,323.00 while "KDJAll3" lost out to our champion heads-up and walked away with the $143,842.50 consolation prize.
Also enjoying some success at PokerStars this Sunday was Toby “810ofclubs” Lewis who finished in third place in the Sunday Kickoff for $13,174.40 and Elliott “elliottpet” Peterman who collected $15,126.75 for his sixth place finish in the Sunday 500.
Two of our players reached the finale of The Bigger $162 namely “serenityjl” who finished fifth for $11,585.25 and Ireland’s “sham123321” who bust one place deeper for $16,341.30.
Over at PokerStars’ sister site, Full Tilt, Rhys “floppin_ell” Jones excelled in the Super Sized Sunday and left with the $22,684.32 first place prize – Charlie “Epiphany77” Carrel finished ninth in the same event.
There were three of the UK & Ireland’s stars at the T-Rex final table, but sadly none of them could manage a win. Chris “MoormanI” Moorman finished ninth for $844.56, with Paul “Senapied” Senter coming eighth for $1,055.70. Ireland’s “Wine of Whiskey” went the deepest, busting in fifth place for $2,850.39.
Rounding out the Full Tilt results is the second place for Paul “pvas2” Vas Nunes in the Sunday Brawl for a welcomed $17,226 addition to his bankroll.
There was plenty to get excited about over at 888poker again this week, which seems to be a very happy hunting ground for British players of late.
Ireland’s “ItsConway” collected $16,467.77 for his fourth place in the star-studded $200,000 Whale, while “SpitOnGraves,” Ireland-based Italian Ivan “TripleAceIRL” Tononi and “babazee1” finished fourth, seventh and eighth in the $100,000 Mega Deep for combined scores in excess of $18,000.
Jude “j.thaddeus” Ainsworth managed a fifth place finish in the $50,000 Turbo Mega Deep for $4,084.50 with The $50,000 Sunday Crocodile’s final table being full of our players too; “Bradbfc10” finished fourth for $5,352.75, Andy “Andy.69.Nuts” Veselov finishing third for $6,800.62 and “d1sclosure” winning the whole shebang for $21,060.
Last, yet definitely not least, was the outright victory for “OMG_PorFavor” in the $100,000 Challenge that netted him $27,279.00.
