February 7 was Super Bowl Sunday and while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were marching on to victory, several of our players were scoring touchdowns of their own.
Big Scores Galore at GGPoker
British grinder “MrSizeMore” got their hands on a massive $62,627 prize courtesy of being he last player standing in the $150 buy-in GGMasters tournament at GGPoker. MrSizeMore outlasted 4,056 opponents in this week’s event, which took them a shade over 13 hours from start to finish. The grind was worth it, however, because it resulted in a bankroll-boosting prize.
Michael Zhang came close to an impressive victory of his own but he fell short of the End Zone. Zhang navigated his way to the heads-up portion of the $2,625 High Rollers Blade Prime where he faced off against Bert Stevens. Zhang fell in second place and consoled himself with the $37,022 runner-up prize, leaving Stevens to collect $47,471.
Ireland had a big winner at GGPoker on Sunday, too. “Give me odds” finished fifth in the Global MILLION$ event and walked away with $35,642. Fellow Irish star Ian Parsley finished seventh in the same tournament for a $20,043 payout. Top work, gentlemen.

Excellent Results at 888poker
888poker proved to be a happy hunting ground for our players, especially in the $100,000 Sunday Mega Deep where five of the nine seats at the final table were taken up by players calling the UK or Ireland home.
Ben “DoobieFish” Kett busted in ninth for $1,480 with “Anniepoke” busted in sixth for a $3,400 haul. “Tuna_lover” now has $4,550 to spend on their favourite fish after their fifth-place exit while “SRFC1899” of Ireland fell in second-place for $11,290. This left UK’s “DanOmaBrown” as the last player standing, meaning a $15,480 prize winged its way to their account.
Jamie “jamnix90” Nixon made it all the way to third place in the $100,000 Mountain, a finish worth $13,000, with “Grind4Gr33n” crashing out of the $33 Sunday BIG Fish in sixth for a $1,359 score.
There were four of our players at the final table of the $30,000 Sunday Challenge.
“Callxm” crashed in seventh for $1,705 while Mario “THEKIDM8” Sanchez saw their tournament end in sixth for a $1,046 prize. “me.and.her” saw their tournament end in fourth-place for $2,184 while “colisea13” collected $3,517 after busting in second. All those payments include bounties.

Big Game Joy at partypoker
There was plenty to shout about in the three partypoker Big Game tournaments, the only non-festival tournaments to feature real names in the lobby.
Robert Davison came out on top in the $2,600 buy-in High Roller Big Game. Some 118 players bought in, including the likes of Isaac Haxton, Jans Arends, Matthias Eibinger, and Artur Martirosian.
Roberto Romanello busted in 16th for $5,309 leaving Davison as the last British player in the field. Amazingly, Davison got the job done, defeating Ami Barer heads-up, to bank $73,494!
The $530 Big Game was laden with our players with no fewer than seven of them navigating their way to the tournament’s top 20 places!
Kevin Parkes, Bradley Harwood, Daniel McAulay, and Jamie Nixon busted before the final table, the latter winning $2,478. Ireland’s Padraig Lally’s time at the eight-handed final table was short-lived because he was the first out of the door.
Lee Amestoy progressed three places deeper and secured a $9,175 payout. Ben Jones was our players who went the deepest, Jones’ third-place exit locking up $19,863.
Only one of our players reached the final table of the $55 Mini Big Game, Jamie Munro being that player. Munro’s fifth-place exit saw $3,843 head to his partypoker account.
