There were some impressive results by our players over at 888poker where the Sunday Sale promotion slashed the buy-ins of several key events.

The $100,000 Sunday Mega Deep was one such tournament. It usually costs $109 to enter but buying in only set you back $55 this weekend. Some 2,159 players took advantage of the reduced prize and two of our players managed to reach the final table.

“JPiernik” crashed out in sixth-place for $4,102 with “Boojeroo” eliminated in third-place, a finish worth $9,931.

It was a similar story in the $30,000 Sunday Sale Whale with two of our heroes navigating their way to the final nine. The final table appearance of “mtabs11” was short-lived because they busted in seventh place and collected $1,960. “carl29784” finished in third for a $5,757 addition to their bankroll.

Three Union Jacks were spotted at the nine-handed final table of the $30,000 Sunday Challenge PKO. “adamisere” fell in ninth for $782, “chrissymal” in seventh for $1,266 with “Octopokes” eventually falling in third for $2,685. All three of those pries included bounty payments.
