UK & Ireland Sunday Briefing

Jareth East locked up his largest online poker tournament score when he was crowned the partypoker MILLION champion on April 26.

East, playing under the moniker “wong951”, finished on top of more than 6,000 entrants in the partypoker MILLION. East defeated “The12MUL8” heads-up to get his hands on the $186,133 first-place prize.

This is East’s second six-figure prize of his online career. The previous came in 2014 when he won a $320 NLHE Re-Entry event in the PokerStars WCOOP. That victory won East $132,200.

Some of our players enjoyed a fruitful end to the Poker Masters Online series, too. Ben Heath finished 14th in the final event of the festival, a $10,300 NLHE 6-max affair, and won $26,789. Ireland’s Mark Davies busted in 11th for $31,390, with Jason McConnon eventually falling a the final hurdle and locking up $248,200.

It wasn’t meant to be for any of our players in the $2 million guaranteed Poker Masters Main Event, which cost $51,000 to enter. Conor Beresford came the closest to winning, his tournament ended in a ninth-place finish worth $154,000.
