UK & Ireland Sunday Briefing: Robert “float2felt” Snell Wins $100K Mega Deep
The attention of the poker world may be focussed on the goings on at the European Poker Tour Malta festival, but there was also plenty of tournament action online this Sunday, too.
At 888poker, Robert “float2felt” Snell bought into the $100,000 Mega Deep for $215 and almost 13.5 hours later he had turned his investment into the $24,750 first place prize. Joining Snell at that final table was “vicimax” who crashed out in fifth place for $6,930.
There were two Union Jacks at the final table of the $100,000 Baby Whale. “carmen.1957” fell in eighth place for $2,463.75 with “biturcio1023” busting in fourth place for a cool $8,760.
UK-based Spaniard Sergio “trujustrus” Cabrera saw his $50,000 Turbo Mega Deep run end in a fifth place finish worth $2,900. Earlier, “whyfloatme” was the first casualty of the final table, his ninth place adding $950 to his lifetime winnings total.
In the $40,000 Crocodile, a $160 buy-in event, “aandy48” fell in eighth place for $1,410.75 with “IkamBarc” being eliminated two spots later in sixth place for $2,664.75, and a big shout out to “ickemeister” who won the $60,000 Sunday Challenge and collected $10,440.75 after a three-way chop.
