UK & Ireland Sunday Briefing: Big Sunday For UK Players

Talal Shaekrchi

Players calling the United Kingdom home enjoyed more than their fair share of success at the online poker tables on December 8th, especially at the world’s largest site PokerStars. Wins, near misses and big scores were the order of the day, here are some of the more impressive results enjoyed by players from our shores.

Two UK-based Spaniards managed to reach the final table of this weekend’s Sunday Million. Sadly for them, they failed in their quest for glory, but still managed to significantly pad their bankrolls.

“PeroQmaloSoy” finished in seventh-place for $16,640 while “disquesi!” fell in third for a cool $59,999.

Talal “raidalot” Shakerchi narrowly missed out on a final table appearance in the $10,300 PLO 6-Max High Rollers 24 event. Shakerchi ran out of steam in seventh-place, a finish good for a $32,493 addition to his presumably ample bankroll.

Simon “simon1471” Higgins banked an even larger prize than Shakerchi when he navigated his way to a third-place finish in the High Rollers 25: $2,100 NLHE 8-Max PKO event. Higgins collected $28,822 from the main prize pool plus an additional $12,015 for a combined prize worth $40,837.
