UK & Ireland Sunday Briefing: Ludovic Geilich Wins Sunday Grand PLO
The winner of the $1,050 Sunday Grannd PLO at PokerStars this week was a name familiar to online poker tournament grinders, that of a certain Ludovic “ludovi333” Geilich.
Geilich came out on top of a small but star-studded field of 88 entrants in the high stakes pot-limit Omaha event and was part of a three-way deal with Alexander “AlexKP” Petersen and “Limwonster.” Eventually, Geilich was the last player standing and he got his hands on $14,896.
Also at PokerStars, two players reached the final table of the $109 Sunday Starter. Fresh from returning from Las Vegas, Ben “F3nix35” Dobson finished sixth for $1,272 while “sherholmes” bust two places later in fourth for $2,357.
Two Union Jacks were present at the final table of the $215 Sunday Warm-Up. “MkMyWishFish” fell in sixth-place for $8,353 with the UK-based Spaniard Sergio “trujustrus” Cabrera being the tournament’s runner-up, a finish worth a cool $31,254.
It was a similar story in the $700 Super-Sized Sunday with two of our players reaching the final table. “david owie” banked $2,716 and $2,426 in bounties for his ninth-place finish, and “ShootTheSky” collected $9,045 and $5,096 in bounty payments for finishing in fifth-place.
In the $215 Sunday Million, “Maden2k” walked away $18,433 richer courtesy of a seventh-place finish, “pkace666” won $5,258 for their eighth-place finish in the $1,050 Sunday Grand NLHE, and “Fireburns3” banked $1,466 for their ninth-place finish in the $109 Sunday Cooldown Turbo.
Over at partypoker, Jonathan “jgjg3000” Gill was part of a heads-up chop in the $109 Main Event. Gill went on to finish second and added $21,790 to his lifetime winnings, which now stand close to $1.6 million. Gill also finished 10th in the $215 Title Fight Warm-Up for $1,370.
In partypoker’s flagship tournament, the $215 Title Fight, JJ “Luckyginga” Hazan finished in third-place and netted himself $17,098 as a result.
There were also some solid results over at 888poker where “FatStacksY0” took down the $80,000 Baby Whale to turn $320 into a most impressive $17,802. It was also at 888poker where “ego_death” finished second in the $50,000 Sunday Challenge, but not before securing a deal worth $8,614 which was $500 more than the eventual champion received.
