UK & Ireland Sunday Briefing: carpediem200 Seizes the Day

UK & Ireland Sunday Briefing
  • "carpediem200" secured their fourth-largest online tournament cash by chopping the Sunday Grand NLHE.

Carpe Diem is Latin for “seize the day” and the British grinder known as “carpediem200” did exactly that in Jun. 11 when he took down the $1,050 Sunday Grand NLHE at PokerStars for $39,642.

Hailing from Tonbridge, Kent, carpediem200 is one of many UK-based online poker players who chooses to keep their real identity a secret. Whoever it is certainly knows their way around the virtual felt because they have amassed more than $2.8 million in online tournament winnings.

The $39,642 that carpediem200 won, after a heads-up chop, is the player’s fourth-largest online score, with the most they have won weighing in at $66,285, which was their reward for winning a $1,050 no-limit hold’em WCOOP event in Sept. 2016.

Currently ranked 37th in the UK by our friends at PocketFives.com, carpediem200 is sure to be catapulted towards a top 20 berth when the rankings database is next updated.

Also at PokerStars, two players from the UK made it to the final table of the Big $109. “tommytin55” bust in eight-place for $2,070 while Jack “Jackerzzzzzz” Loraine navigated their way to a third-place finish and banked $10,774.

In the $700 Super-Sized Sunday, “trickyone14” saw their tournament end in ninth-place for $2,951 plus $9,359 in bounty payments, and in the $215 Sunday Million, “Swaggersorus” and “chubbybeast” fell in eighth and sixth-place for scores of $13,400 and $27,976.

Lastly for the results at PokerStars, “cheeky4714” reached the final table of the $215 Sunday Supersonic and bust in sixth-place to add $3,731 to their bankroll.

There were a series of near misses for British players at 888poker on June 11.

"ckb4714" fell at the final hurdle in the $100,000 Mega Deep and finished in second-place for $14,681. Earlier in the same tournament, Ben “Binkasaurus” Farrell bust in ninth-place for $1,621.80.

In the $1,050 buy-in $150,000 Whale, “Christoph91” was the first casualty at the final table and netted $4,200, while “_JMO_” collected $3,902 for his fourth-place finish in the $40,000 Turbo Mega Deep.

Two of our players navigated their way to the final table of the $60,000 Sunday Challenge this weekend. “threecat3” saw their tournament end in fifth-place, a finish worth $3,434, while “ourstheglory” bust two places later in third for a $6,486 addition to their bankroll.

While over at partypoker, Oliver “ThreeBunPass” Price continued his excellent run of form in the $2,600 Super High Roller by finishing in third-place for a $21,520.01 score.
