Sunday Briefing: Oliver Price Wins partypoker Super High Roller

Oliver Price
  • Oliver Price is making the partypoker Super High Roller his own; he won it again this weekend.

Partypoker may want to consider changing the name of its $2,600 Super High Roller to the “Oliver Price Invitational” because the British professional won it for the second time in two months yesterday and walked away with $43,750.

Price has made the $100,000 guaranteed tournament his own recently, winning the event on Nov. 6 for $46,313 and finishing as the runner-up on four occasions and in fourth place once. This latest victory takes Price’s online tournament winnings past $1.3 million and should see him climb a place or two in the UK & Ireland Online Poker rankings.

Also at partypoker, Niall “firaldo87” Farrell helped himself to the $2,980.70 sixth place prize of the $109 Weigh-In tournament.

There were also some impressive results in 888poker’s Sunday schedule. Three British players navigated their way to the final table of the $100,000 Whale. “DangerMaus17” and “JamieSimmo” finished in eighth and seventh place for scores of $3,771.37 and $5,279.92 while “duffmonbrah” helped themselves to the $8,749.59 fifth place prize.

Ireland’s “angrysanchez” banked a five-figure score, namely $10,817.40 by finishing fourth in the $120,000 Mega Deep, with “Tuna_lover” busting from the $50,000 Sunday Crocodile in fourth place for $5,172, and a shout out to “peterpan_33.” who collected $8,764 for finishing third in the $80,000 Sunday Challenge.

Across to PokerStars now where “myleftfoot” won the Big $215 for $27,218.27 and Jack “jackziyang” Salter finished third for $14,333.94. It was a great Sunday for myleftfoot because he is the player known as angrysanchez at 888poker. Expect him to move up a few spots in the Irish online poker rankings later this week.
