Sunday Briefing: Oliver Price Final Tables Three Majors
Oliver Price is celebrating his birthday today in style after reaching the final table of three Sunday Majors.
Price, 24, navigated his way to a fourth place finish in the PokerStars Bigger $109 for $18,515.00 then went on to win (after a heads-up deal) the Full Tilt Super Sized Sunday for $15,423.24 before finishing fifth in The Sunday Major, also at Full Tilt, for an additional $8,580.92.
Despite that trio of final table appearance, Price’s winnings were not the most enjoyed by the army of UK and Ireland’s players this Sunday because there were some fantastic results by our grinders.
“TheMuppet” helped himself to the $44,880.00 third place prize of the Sunday 500 and then added another $24,050.00 by finishing fifth in the $1,050 buy-in WCOOP 2nd Chance 8-Max NL Hold’em, not a bad night at the virtual felt at all.
Earlier on Sunday, “LittleLettuS” bust fourth in the Sunday Kickoff for $13,035.28 and “Ahhh Is It?” came fourth in the Sunday Rebuy and collected $25,552.50.
In The Bigger $162, “VL-Hannibal” devoured the $25,258.50 third place prize, “pilsuhng” banked $20,236.80 for his fourth place in the Sunday 2nd Chance, a tournament that Ireland’s “myleftfoot33” finished second in for $37,200.00.
The big scores kept on coming at PokerStars courtesy of “FourSixFour” being the runner-up in the WCOOP 2nd Chance Event #26 for $36,000.00 after a heads-up deal, Ireland’s “dikudikudiku” finishing fourth in the Sunday Supersonic for $21,324.52
Rounding out the PokerStars results are the second place finish in The Bigger $75 for “saladinhoo” worth a cool $17,056.80 and the $9,118.28 won by Charlie “JIZOINT” Combes for his fourth place finish in the same event.
888poker continues to be a happy hunting ground for players from the UK & Ireland, just as Andy “wiisssppppaa” Taylor who took down the $60,000 Turbo Mega Deep for a $13,854.60 score. Taylor was joined at the final table by Sebastian “iknowmybody” Saffari who finished fifth for $4,081.20.
Daryl “CkCallCkFold” Greenfinished as runner-up in the $30,000 Octopus for an $8,613.00 addition to his bankroll, while “DroopysBen” and Rick “WhosToClaim” Trigg bust in seventh and eighth place in the $75,000 Crocodile for scores of $2,856.75 and $1,977.75.
There were some solid results over at partypoker too where Daniel “luckyscrote” Carter finished third in the $150,000 Guaranteed Sunday for $14,241.05 and Victoria “victoria_uk” Whitehouse finished second in the $10,000 Guaranteed for a career-best $1,598.29.
