Out of a huge field of 10,931 entries, a very familiar face rose to the top of the ranks in yesterday’s $109 Sunday Million.
If you’re not familiar with the UK’s Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford, you haven’t been paying attention. The Brit is a beast online, and has now added $112,185 and a Sunday Million title to his impressive résumé. Beresford defeated Ukraine’s “manumanu1985” ($81,408) heads-up for the victory.
Beresford also boasts a Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) title ($171K with a win in a $2,100 4-max event back in 2016), and victories in other Sunday major events including the Warm-up and the Sunday HR. His total online earnings now sit at more than $8.5M.
You might also have clocked him going deep in the EPT Monte Carlo Main Event earlier this year, when he finished 11th for €50,930. The closest Beresford has come in the Milly prior to yesterday was a fifth-place finish back in 2012 for $65,800.
We also saw a very well-known player take down a title over in the High Roller Club.
Simon “C. Darwin2” Mattsson is arguably one of the G.O.A.T.s of online poker. Currently ranked third in the world (according to PocketFives), Mattsson has rarely (if at all) been ranked out of the top five in as long as we can remember, amassing more than $13.2M in online earnings along the way.
Mattsson took down the prestigious $2,100 Sunday HR yesterday for $38,327, defeating Preben “prebz” Stokkan heads-up ($29,136). Mattsson’s fellow swede, and current no.1-ranked player in the world Niklas “Lena900” Åstedt finished in fourth ($16,837), while Sunday Million champion Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford also made the final table (6th – $9,730).
The biggest winner from the High Roller Club this weekend was Canada’s “cantstopmeAA” who took down the $530 Bounty Builder for $35,241 plus $37,406 in bounties.
