Sunday Briefing


  • Owain "sngwonder" Carey was among the big winners this weekend. Find out more in the Sunday Briefing.

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.

Also enjoying a big five-figure cash on Sunday was “roxy274” thanks to taking down the Big $215 for $23,231.23, while “mondonewc” collected $7,983.20 by finishing fourth in the Sunday Kickoff.

“roycieboy” found himself quids in by taken down the $100,000 Mega Deep for $21,722.80, the same tournament that Rick “whostoclaim” Trigg finished sixth in for $4,896 and “fullshroom” fell in ninth place for $1,762.56.

“BadModfoka1” was another player who won an 888poker tournament this Sunday, their tournament of choice was the $30,000 Turbo Mega Deep, and was worth a welcome $7,912. “riftuk19” bust from that particular event in fifth place and walked away with $2,208.
