UK & Ireland Sunday Briefing: Massive Sunday Million

Sunday Briefing

This weekend’s PokerStars Sunday Million was part of the Winter Series and saw the format swap to a progressive knockout (PKO). It proved a popular move as 17,077 players turned out to create a guarantee-busting $1,707,700 prize pool.

Two of our players navigated their way to the eight-handed final table. “Diplomatic_Boy” fired three $109 bullets and it was a case of third time lucky as their fifth-place finish netted them $28,826.

The other British player was “darboy72” who busted once place deeper in fourth but not before being part of a four-handed deal that saw them bank a cool $60,246. Top work!

Three of our players made it to the final table of the Bigger $109. “DALMAX” turned their $109 into a $5,009 score by finishing in fifth-place. They were joined on the rail by “Aagoodfold” in fourth, a finish worth $6,967. We almost had a champion, but “BIBFLOP307” fell at the final hurdle and had to console themselves with the $13,478 second-place prize.

Some of the other notable results from PokerStars involving players from the UK & Ireland included:

  • “gynaikologos” - fourth-place in the $215 NLHE 6-Max Winter Series for $14,764
  • Andy “andyh26” Holman – second-place in the Hotter $109 for $8,975

There were a couple of final table appearances over at 888poker too.

“tpgrok” made their way to the final nine of the $20,000 Sunday Challenge, but couldn’t quite get going and had to make do with the $400 ninth-place prize. There was a much better result for 888poker regular “SpitOnGraves” who took down the $20,000 Whale for a $7,161 score, topping a field of 66 in the $320 buy-in event.
