Although there are hundreds of players from the United Kingdom and Ireland currently in Las Vegas for the 2016 World Series of Poker and unable to play their usual Sunday online schedules, a handful of our stars are still on home soil, and took full advantage of being able to play in online poker’s Sunday Majors this weekend.
“OLDWOLF133” decided to play the $215 Sunday Warm-Up at PokerStars and what a decision it was. After 12 hours of action, OLDWOLF walked away with $52,149.56 and the win after a heads-up chop with Ukraine’s “JEKAAA7.”
“123454321888” was at the same final table, falling in fifth place for $16,169.
Despite this victory, this was not the biggest cash of the night. That honour went to “Cottonbud07” who finished fourth in the Sunday Million for $73,975. Shout out also to “wayneking123” who bust the Sunday Million in ninth place for $10,423.75.
