UK & Ireland Sunday Briefing: Charlie Combes With a Big Score

Charlie Combes
  • Charlie Combes took down a PKO event at PokerStars for more than $57,000 on Oct. 7.

Poker players from the UK and Ireland enjoyed some excellent tournament results on Oct. 7 although there were few, if any, who enjoyed themselves more than Charlie Combes.

Playing at PokerStars under the alias “JIZOINT”, Combes topped a field of 5,388 runners in the Bounty Builder Series 01: $109 NLHE 6-Max. It was a result that netted Combes a combined $57,193 when bounty payments were taken into account.

Combes and his fiancée Nicola have recently become parents to twins. This $57,193 score will fund a whole lot of nappies!

Another Englishman helping themselves to a big score was Andy “andyh26” Holman who was the runner-up in the $215 Sunday Supersonic. Holman fell at the final hurdle in the hyper-turbo structured event to get his hands on $17,586. UK-based German Manig “swordfish007” Loeser busted in fifth-place for $6,751.

Holman then went on to win the $109 Bounty Builder for $22,770 to cap of a superb day.
