UK & Ireland Sunday Briefing: Massive Scores Continue

Sunday Briefing

Players from the United Kingdom and Ireland enjoyed plenty of success during the recent online poker tournament festivals and that impressive run of form is continuing judging by some of the results we’ve seen from this weekend.

Matthew Wood doesn’t usually play $25,500 buy-in events but he may want to start adding them to his arsenal after finishing fourth in one held at partypoker. Fifty-players turned out for the $25,500 High Roller Club Main Event and Wood navigated his way to the star-studded final table.

The likes of Matthias Eibinger, Justin Bonomo, and Nick Schulman busted before Wood. He busted in fourth-place to receive a $121,875 return on his buy-in, quite a superb results.

Giuseppe Ladisernia ($190,625) and Steve O’Dwyer ($296,875) were the only other players to bust, which left Wiktor Malinowski to bank the $443,750 top prize.

Awesome poker tournament strategy here!

Luke Reeves also reached a High Roller Club final table, doing so in the $5,200 Big Game. Reeves fell in sixth-place and won $42,000. Omar Alomar went the deepest of our player, falling in fourth for a $78,000 prize.

There was also a substantial score for Tyler “RentCollection” Goatcher. He’s been loving his time at partypoker, winning tournaments left, right, and centre. Goatcher’s run in the partypoker MILLION ended before a victory, but he still scooped $71,208 for his third-place exit.


Over at PokerStars, Reeves almost won the $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up but fell at the final hurdle. The man known as “Bit2Easy” collected the $24,958 consolation prize after losing the heads-up battle against Lebanon’s “kimokh”.

Reeves’ prize is similar to what Oliver “Riverbanged” Bithell netted when they won the $215 Sunday Warm-Up. The Brit won $26,844 after Patrick “thebigdog09” Brooks crashed out in fifth for a $7,445 addition to his bankroll.
