Ian Simpson

Former Irish Open champion Ian Simpson ensured himself a profitable Sunday at the virtual felt by taking down the $50,000 guaranteed Weigh-In tournament at partypoker.

Simpson, playing as “Simpioni,” topped a field of 776 players in the $109 buy-in tournament to get his hands on the $12,935.92 first place prize. He also put together a deep run in the $150,000 guaranteed Main Event, but fell in 150 from 1,683 runners for $201.96.

Over at Full Tilt, two British players reached the final table of the Sunday Major and collected more than $13,000 combined. Gerald “viking47” Ringe bust in third place for $5,550, with Rick “TheClaimer” Trigg going one place deeper finishing second for $7,750.

As has been the case for the past few months, 888poker proved to be a happy hunting ground for those players sporting a Union Jack next to their names. “Christoph91” finished in eighth place in the $120,000 Mega Deep for a $3,695.12 score, while “polukalos” triumphed in the $50,000 Turbo Mega Deep for $12,229.20.

UK-based Spaniard “CrackdeI29” enjoyed a fifth place finish in the $100,000 Baby Whale worth $8,245.80 with Cardiff’s Mike “OneTime_” Donofrio walking away with the $11,475.87 third place prize in the $100,000 Sunday Challenge.

At PokerStars, a quartet of Irishmen banked big prizes in the Sunday Majors held there this weekend. David “daveybabey86” Costello added $11,387.90 to his lifetime winnings by finishing fourth in the $109 Sunday Kickoff, the same tournament that “stardust167” won for $24,496.00 after a heads-up chop.

The player known as “calamitas” walked away from his Sunday Million experience with a $49,778.40 prize courtesy of them finishing in fifth place from a field of 5,926, while Kevin “torino2000” Killeen finished fourth in the Sunday Rebuy for $13,475.00.

PokerStars’ Mountain Series proved to be a huge success with massive prize pool created. One player who will be hoping PokerStars run the series again is “smiler450” who helped himself to the $66,153.12 fourth place prize in the $700 Kilimanjaro tournament, which was won by Doug “WCG|Rider” Polk for $162,951.56.

The Everest tournament, a $2,100 buy-in event that saw 973 players enter and a $1,946,000 prize pool created, had Stephen “woody1234321” Woodhead at its final table. Woodhead crashed out in ninth place, earning $23,352.

Lastly, shoutouts to “SlipperyBean” for finishing third in the Sunday Supersonic for $26,099.73, and to “harrybo8” who finished third in the Sunday 500 for a $34,905.00 score.
