Sunday Briefing: Another Big Score For Owain Carey
Owain “sngwonder” Carey has enjoyed plenty of decent tournament scores over the last few months, and this Sunday he added another $21,187.57 to his lifetime winnings by finishing as the runner-up in the PokerStars Super-Sized Sunday.
Carey’s cash was made even more impressive by the fact the Super-Sized Sunday is a progressive knockout tournament, which meant he collected $13,629.79 in bounty payments in addition to his prize money, making this result one of Carey’s most profitable to date.
