Steven Morris Takes Down Super HighRoller at partypoker LIVE UK Poker Championships

The partypoker LIVE UK Poker Championships recently saw the conclusion of several notable events. Chief among them was the £5300 buy-in Super HighRoller event which was eventually shipped by Steven Morris.
Morris overcame a tough field of 40 entrants  to take home a healthy score of £70,000 along with the trophy for his efforts. Chris Brammer and Tom Middleton were some of the other notable players that made final table at the event.

“I’ve been close a few times. I feel ecstatic to be fair. Honestly. I played it last minute and the first day went pretty well coming back as chip leader. Today we just ran up a stack,” Steven Morris told pokernews.

“The first day was really tough, with a tough table. I had Steven Warburton, Tom Middleton, Michael Zhang and Dominik Nitsche. With it being a really small field it was really tough. It’s pretty sick; different to winning a package and playing a massive field.

“We talked about a deal [heads-up] but my short-stack game is pretty strong. I was pretty confident that if I could grind him down I’d be alright. Obviously, I hit the two-outer originally, but that’s the thing – you’ve got to win flips and he had his own moments. It was pretty sick,” he added.
