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.
