Sunday Briefing: United Kingdom's “ThreeBettng” Wins $318K
The $10 million guaranteed Sunday Million 10th Anniversary tournament has rightly been among the headlines, and while it wasn’t a player from the United Kingdom or Ireland who walked away with top honours, Britain’s “ThreeBetting” came away with a potentially life-changing score.
“ThreeBetting” saw their tournament end in fifth-place, a finish worth a cool $318,415, which is sure to be by far their largest-ever online tournament. We have been unable to find out much information about the mystery player, but rest assured that we will continue our search.
Special mentions to Steven “SteRooney93” Rooney and Ireland’s Gary “GaryT20” Thompson who finished 15th and 17th for scores of $52,416.16 and $38,936.62.
There were some other sizable scores enjoyed by our players at PokerStars this Sunday including a $70,685.94 addition to the bankroll of “thehushpuppy” thanks to winning the Sunday Supersonic, and Charlie “JIZOINT” Combes who was part of a four-way chip in the Bigger $109, which netted him $37,451.43.
Others who enjoyed the sweet taste of success include former WCOOP bracelet winner “beardo1981” who finished sixth in the Sunday 2nd Chance for $13,897.50, and Andy “andyh26” Holman who came fifth in the same tournament for $17,603.50.
Over at partypoker, Andy “andyoungers” Young secured a $4,363.92 payday by finishing fifth in the $50,000 guaranteed Weigh-In, while at Full Tilt “fercombehall” collected 12 bounties on his way to finishing second in the Sunday Brawl for a total cash haul of $3,334.40.
Lastly onto 888poker where “Darrellll” walked away with the $6,869.30 fifth-place prize in the $100,000 Sunday Challenge.
It could be a relatively quiet weekend this week due to the partypoker Powerfest ending on March 20, the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker being a few weeks away, and the Irish Open being in full swing, but as always UK & Ireland PokerNews will have an ear to the ground and will bring you the biggest scores and deepest runs enjoyed by players who call the UK or Ireland home.
