It is easy to forget the online poker world is still turning as the 2019 World Series of Poker (WSOP) steals the attention of the UK & Ireland poker community, but it is indeed still spinning and creating some big prizes too.

One such big prize went to Ireland’s Dan “NukeTheFish!” Wilson, the former Irish Open champion, who topped a field of 264 entries in the PokerStars Sunday 500 to turn his $530 into $25,382 after defeating the Dutch star “Graftekkel” heads-up for the title. Wilson was joined on the final table by “void22815” although they ran out of steam early on and crashed out in ninth-place for a $2,568 score.

Wilson wasn’t the only Irishman to win a tournament at PokerStars on Jun. because Andrew “UlDuffer2 Sweeney flexed his muscles in the $109 NLO8 Sunday Komania PKO event. Sweeney outlasted 199 opponents to bank a prize worth a total of $4,662, made up of $1,963 from the main prize pool and $2,699 worth of bounty payments.

Sweeney also finished third in the $109 PLO Omania Weekend Special for a $2,373 prize.
