Sam Grafton and Chris Moorman Capture Online Sunday Titles

Sam Grafton

Two of the United Kingdom's biggest names took down online tournaments this weekend, namely Sam Grafton and Chris Moorman. Grafton secured a title at PokerStars, while Moorman shone the brightest in an event at GGPoker.

Grafton's victory came in the $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up, a tournament that saw a compact field of 32 entrants formed. The small field meant only the top four finishers won a slice of the $32,000 prize pool. Brazil's Rodrigo "seijistar" Seiji crashed out in fifth, locking up some prize money for the surviving quartet of players.

Heads-up was reached after Pedro "pvigar" Garagnani and Andrey "Anjeyyyy" Novak crashed out, and saw Grafton lock horns with his fellow Brit, Patrick "pads1161" Leonard. Grafton and Leonard stuck a deal that concluded the tournament and saw Leonard finish second for $11,049, with Grafton reeling in an $11,671 top prize.

Grafton went on to finish sixth in the $1,050 Sunday High Roller tournament later on August 7, a result that added another $4,164 to his coffers.

Former Irish Open Main Event champion Dan "NukeTheFish!" Wilson also won a PokerStars event, doing so in the $109 Sunday Starter. Wilson got his hands on $1,923 after a heads-up deal with Canada's "aminolast." Team PokerStars' Fintan "easywithaces" Hand finished fifth in this tournament for $424.
