Sunday Briefing: Yiannis Liperis Binks Summer Series Event

Yiannis Liperis

Dan Charlton won a PokerStars Summer Series event last week and now Yiannis “SupaFlyGreek” Liperis has got in on the action and banked a title of his own.

Liperis was one of 3,486 entries in the Summer Series 80: $109 NLHE 8-Max Turbo PKO that had $200,000 guaranteed. That bumper field created a $348,600 prize pool that was split half to the main prize pool and half on the heads of every entrant.

The least anyone could win by the time the final table was reached was $2,339 plus however much they had accumulated in opponents’ scalps. Those bounty payments ensured the top four finishers won a five-figure prize for their $109 investment, but it was Liperis who got his hands on the lion’s share of the prize money.

He banked $21,427 from the main prize pool after eliminating Canada’s “777acenace777” in second-place. Liperis’ prize was boosted by an impressive $17,231 worth of bounties for a combined prize worth $38,658.

Jack “Jackerzzzzzz” Loraine was another sampling the sweet taste of success. The Brighton-based star finished first from 721 entries in the $109 Sunday Kickoff, an attendance that blew the $40,000 guarantee out of the water.

Loraine secured the $12,250 top prize after a heads-up battle with Canada’s “Bradford1977”; the Canadian netted $8,889 for their second-place finish.

Five reasons you need to play a Summer Series event


888poker proved to be a happy hunting ground for British players with several of them reaching the final tables of the site’s biggest Sunday events.

Christopher “MAKKAPAKK” Johnson triumphed over 265 opponents in the $109 buy-in $25,000 Sunday Challenge. First-place in this tournament weighed in at $5,719. Two other Brits joined Johnson at the final table, namely “kboomthep0t” and “_Moylesee_” who finished in ninth and seventh-place for prizes worth $532 and $1,064 respectively.

There were four of our players at the last table of the $100,000 Sunday Mega Deep. Dara “Doked” O’Kearney finished in eighth and collected $2,250 with “Taksta” busting in sixth for $4,250. Fifth-place and $5,340 went to “fernythrills” before Rick “WhosToClaim” Trigg fell in fourth for a $7,600 addition to his bankroll.

Lastly, for 888poker at least, shout-outs to “MarkBurtoni” and “Joshq” who saw their runs in the $20,000 Whale end in seventh and fifth place for scores of $900 and $1,500.
