Largest Online Score Bagged by Brandon Sheils
The Battle of Malta Main Event:
The Battle of MALTA Main Event at GG poker has 6591 entries, out of which only 989 entrants made it to the final day, and Brandon Sheils was one of them.
Among all the entrants who made it to the final day, only 700 won prize money of £ 1367 out of the total prize pool of £ 3,443,797.
Some of the players who received a return for their investments were Endrit Gecii, a British star and champion of party poker MILLIONS online, John Bradley, The Hat 1994, Harry Vulvasore Lodge, and Dara O’Kearney.
All the nine players who managed to reach the final table were guaranteed to receive a payout of a minimum of £37,828. However, the six-figure prize money was supposed to go to the top five finishers.
At the final table, Sheils had the third shortest stack, and he climbed up the ladder beating Netwizards, Joao Wim Hof Ferreira, Giorgios Sotiropoulos, and “allini” on the way.
An unprecedented turn took place at the point, as 400,000/800,000/100,000 were blinded on the hands of Sheils, he was forced to shove for 4,500,000, which then turned out as queen-jack.
It looked successful until Dzmitry Urbanovich called out with his suited king ten.
Although disappointed to some extent, Sheils can be contented with the winning sum of £119,624, as it is recorded as his largest ever score online.
The largest cash prize that Sheils won was in September 2018, with a staggering £180,000 in the £1,100 million UK open event.
