Jamie “Boz” O’Connor Bosses partypoker Big Game
Table Of Contents
O’Connor was a special guest on the popular APAT Show and juggled answering question with battling foes in partypoker’s $530 buy-in The Big Game. Some 482 players turned out for this week’s tournament and created a $234,150 prize pool, $34,150 more than the advertised guarantee.
The top 79 players received a slice of the pie and there were plenty of British and Irish star among the in-the-money finishers.
Ben Jones, Benjamin McMenemy, Justin Dunk, Paul Vas Nunes, and Connor Morrison all cashed, the latter falling in 11th place for $3,024.
Jamie Nixon reached the final table but crashed out in ninth for $3,844, which left O’Connor as the only Union Jack sporting players in the field. O’Connor swept aside his opposition, including Rui Da Silva heads-up, to bank a $41,417 prize.

We also had a double win in the partypoker Big Games because Roberto Romanello reached the final table of the $2,600 High Roller Big Game. Romanello, however, fell in sixth-place for a $12,398 addition to his bankroll.
There’s every chance a British star will be $184,507 richer over the next couple of days because both Tom Madonald and Will Kassouf find themselves in the top 12 chip counts going into Day 2 of the MILLIONS Online Mini Main Event. Day 2 takes place on February 15 and will see the 169 returning players reduced to the final table of nine.
Brits Shine at 888poker
888poker proved to be a happy hunting ground for our players, especially in the $33 Sunday BIG Fish where Mike “HyperX.” Skeldon came out on top of a 986-strong field to lock up the title and $5,625 in prize money.
Two of our players reached the final table of the $30,000 Sunday Challenge PKO, too. Ben “xLIVEPROx” Warrington’s tournament ended in a sixth-place finish worth $839 while “babos87” collected $1,769 for their fourth-place exit; both scores include bounty payments.
Four of our players made it to the final table of the $100,000 Sunday Mega Deep but, sadly, none of them could quite get the job done.
Nick “hattie009” Cappleman crashed out in ninth for $1,480 with “M10FOG” and “casual_win” banking $2,620 and $3,520 for their seventh and sixth-place finishes. “needabridge” came agonisingly close to victory but ultimately had to make do with a second-place finish worth $11,900.
Big Scores Order of the Day at GGPoker
There were plenty of results worth shouting about from our players’ grind at GGPoker. Michael Zhang, a name associated with triumphing in the game’s biggest tournaments, won one event and reached the final table of another.
Zhang won the $2,625 High Rollers Blade Opener after outlasting 66 of the world’s biggest names. Victory weighed in at $39,752, Zhang’s reward for defeating Bert Stevens heads-up.
Ami Barer, David Peters, Joakim Andersson, Sami Kelopuro, and Niklas Astedt were among those elite names who navigated their way to the nine-handed final table.
Zhang went on to finish sixth in the $5,250 Sunday 500 High Rollers event for an additional $33,591.

Brits Bank $86K From PokerStars $1,050 Sunday High Roller
PokerStars produced some big scores with two British star banking more than $86,000 from the $1,050 Sunday High Roller alone.
Jonathan “Proudflop” Proudfoot and “13shaun” found themselves in the top five spots with the majority of the 322-strong field fallen by the wayside. David “Missoracle” Yan crashed out in fifth for $19,093 and it looked like the English duo could go all the way.
That was until Proudfoot busted in fourth for £25,482.
Team partypoker’s Dzmitry “Colisea” Urbanovich could only muster a third-place finish worth $34,009, which left 13shaun and “Grozzorg” of Austria as the last players standing. 13Shaun claimed the victory for the UK, which came with a $60,576 payout. Grozzorg reeled in $45,389 for their runner-up finish.
