UK & Ireland Sunday Briefing: Rick Trigg Secures $715K Score

Rick Trigg
  • Rick Trigg secured a $715,335 score by finishing second in the Sunday Million Anniversary Take 2 event.

Popular British grinder Rick Trigg secured by far the largest tournament cash of his long and illustrious career when he finished second in the PokerStars Sunday Million Anniversary Take 2 for a massive $715,335.

Trigg’s previous best score weighed in at $115,069, which was his reward for finishing fourth in a $1,575 WCOOP event back in Sept. 2016. Now he has multiplied that impressive sum by almost a factor of six thanks to finishing second from 56,310 opponents in this $10 million guaranteed event.

The Sheffield-based grinder was joined at the final table by a fellow Briton in the shape of “Hidey7.” After firing two $215 bullets, Hidey7 fell in fifth-place and walked away with $252,910.

Congratulations to Netherlands’ “Daenarys T” who beat Trigg heads-up to get their hands on the $1,000,043 first-place prize.

There were three of our players at the final table of this week’s Sunday 500. The player known as “Kashmir_uzi” ran out of bullets to bust in eighth-place for $5,070 with Sam “SamSquid” Grafton busting in fifth-place for $12,873. Going the deepest was “OLDWOLF133,” a previous Sunday Warm-Up champion, who fell in third-place for a $23,961 score.

Some of the other notable cashes at PokerStars this weekend included:

  • “Koln4ever” - second-place in the Bigger $55 for $17,659

“Chuckemdown9” also finished ninth in the $100,000 Sunday Mega Deep for $1,691 but was outshone by “SnowRoll” who was the tournament’s runner-up, a finish worth a cool $14,532. Shout-out also to “TopBeaver69” who collected $5,190 for their fifth-place finish.

Finally, for 888poker at least, congratulations to “josetecrazy” who won the $15,000 Turbo Mega Deep for $4,632 and to “corbetts83” who finished fifth in the same tournament for a $1,190 addition to their bankroll.

To partypoker now where we conclude the Sunday Briefing for another week. Dean “mugggy1” Quinn turned $530 into $8,474 by navigating his way to a sixth-place finish in the Super Sunday Main Event-HR: $200K Gtd.
