Sunday Briefing: Christopher Brammer Secures a $34K Payday
A large number of the United Kingdom and Ireland’s top tournament grinders were busy plying their trade at the European Poker Tour Malta festival, but there were still plenty of big scores and deep runs enjoyed by our players in the various online Sunday Majors.
One of the biggest scores of the weekend went to Christopher “NigDawG” Brammer thanks to him finishing second in the Sunday Supersonic. Brammer bagged $33,938.80 for his runner-up finish, losing out on the $45,478.82 first place prize to UK-based Spaniard Andoni “Pollopopeye” Larrabe.
Larrabe’s fellow Spaniard, Alberto “bombuslol” Garcia, who is based in Bournemouth, finished third in the Supersonic for $25,657.73.
Earlier on Sunday, “JaMmYsTyLe7” finished third in the Sunday Kickoff for $14,508.00 with “modelbilis” finishing eighth in the Sunday Rebuy for $4,581.00. Also in the Sunday Rebuy, Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford finished third for a cool $20,767.20.
Southampton’s “Saitek00” came agonisingly close to a six-figure score when he bust from the Sunday Million in seventh place. That particular finish saw him add $25,668.00 to his lifetime winnings.
A runner-up finish in the Sunday 500, worth a massive $43,688.50, pushed London’s “LolS” through the $1 million winnings barrier. This represents LolS’ second largest online cash, the largest coming in May 2014 when he finished second in the $109 NL Hold’em SCOOP event.
In the Full Tilt Sunday Major, “ZiGzArGo1” finished sixth for $3,075.00 with “glmdmk” finishing in seventh place in the Super Sized Sunday for $899.96. Shout out too to Ireland’s “Buy in Viv” who bust the T-Rex in seventh place for a $569.25 score.
Over at 888poker, Elliott “888luka21” Peterman chopped The $150,000 Whale heads-up, before finishing second, for $27,939.36, a tournament that the in-form Stephen “wd1head” Woodhead finished fifth in for $9,403.86.
The player known as “derharry69” emerged victorious in the $50,000 Turbo Mega Deep for an $11,697.40 score, with “MalakiasCF” seeing his run in that tournament end in fifth place, a finish worth $3,317.60 and Scott “AggroSantos” Margereson finishing eighth for $1,430.
Last for this week’s Sunday Briefing is a doff of the cap to Irish star Andrew “UlDuffer” Sweeney who was first to fall at the final table of the $150,000 Mega Deep for $1,950.00.
With partypoker’s Pokerfest now underway, there’s ample opportunity for online grinders to secure a big payout during the week and especially on Sunday where another 12 events take place.
