David Vamplew Finishes Fifth in Record-Breaking Super Tuesday
It seems like the attendance record for the PokerStars $1,050 buy-in Super Tuesday is broken every week of late, and this week was no different as 614 players bought in. This huge crowd created a $614,000 prize pool and a first place – another record amount – of $116,046.00.
A number of UK & Ireland players managed to progress to the final 72 places where the prize money was awarded, but it was one of our own who burst the bubble to allow the cash to flow. Paul “xxCelticFCxx” Febers got his 12 big blinds into the middle holding against robinho’s . A jack landed on the flop to improve robinho to an aces-cracking set and bust out xxCelticxx in 73rd place.
Andrew “stato_1” Hulme scraed into the money by finishing in 71st place and he was joined on the virtual rail by the likes of Laurence “rivermanl” Houghton (47th); Rory “Mafews” Matthews (46th); Ross “RLOG” Loggie (19th) and World Series of Poker bracelet winner Matt “pezler06” Perrins (15th).
The deepest run by a UK & Ireland player in this week’s Super Tuesday was by former European Poker Tour London champion David “davidiv1213” Vamplew, who went on to finish in fifth place for a $33,156.00 score. Vamplew’s exit came at the hands of Australia’s Steve “Stev0L_” Leonard when the latter min-raised to 36,000 from under the gun, Pokerfred99 three-bet to 78,665 from the next seat and Vamplew four-bet all in for 342,255 next to act. Only Pokerfred99 called and Vamplew was in seriously bad shape, his running into the . Just as in xxCelticxx’s exit, a third jack flopped and was more than enough to resign Vamplew to fifth place. If it is any consolation to the young Scot, Pokerfred99 put his chips to good use because he went on to win this week’s tournament.
