Once again it was one of our own who scooped a huge prize in the $1,050 buy-in Super Tuesday on PokerStars, Daniel "KrazyKiddo" Bass chopping heads-up to get his hands on an impressive score of $92,793.75.
There were those who thought this week’s edition of the Super Tuesday would not be well attended thanks to the European Poker Tour London Main Event keeping so many of the Super Tuesday’s regular players occupied. That was certainly not the case as 585 players bought in and created a prize pool of $585,000. This huge sum of money was distributed among the top 72 finishers, a min-cash being worth $1,930.50.
Some of the players to reach the money places included Calvin “cal42688” Anderson (63rd), Toby “810ofclubs” Lewis (56th), Marty “TheLipoFund” Mathis (48th), Laurence “rivermanl” Houghton (41st) and Dani “supernova9” Stern (25th).
After almost nine hours of play, the nine-handed final table began and the players lined up as follows.
|2||Caio “caio_pimenta” Pimenta||213,691|
|6||Daniel “KrazyKiddo” Bass||156,755|
|7||Mike “StrungOut1” Wasserman||263,764|
|8||Nick “FU_15” Mamoine||578,590|
After just three hands the table lost its first player. A preflop raising war between Mike “StrungOut1” Wasserman and Lequenden resulted in the latter being all in and at risk of elimination, holing to Wasserman’s . The board ran out and Lequenden was eliminated.
Next to go was PaDiLhA SP who open-shoved his nine big blind stack with and was looked up by Allinpri and his . The deuces stayed ahead right until the river, but the condemned PaDiLhA SP to eighth place money.
Another all in preflop confrontation saw proFISHnal at risk with against Nick “FU_15” Mamoine’s dominated . Mamoine paired his jack on a flop and when the turn and river fell the and respectively, it was game over for proFISHnal.
A couple of hands later and FU_15 eliminated another player, the unfortunate soul being Caio “caio_pimenta” Pimenta. Again, the chips went in preflop, Pimenta holding and FU_15 a pair of red sixes. The board was no help to Pimenta and he headed to the virtual rail in sixth place.
Despite having knocked out two players in quick succession, FU_15 was the next player to see his tournament end. Once more, as is usually the case in tournament poker, the chips went into the middle of the felt preflop, FU_15 holding to the of Allinpri. The on the turn improved Allinpri to the best hand and dashed any hopes FU_15 had of winning the Super Tuesday this week.
PIUlimeira was the next player to bust out, his being no match for the of StrungOut1 who improved to a straight when the five community cards ran out .
StrungOut1 then committed all of his stack with on a flop to find himself up against the of Allinpri. The turn gifted Allinpri even more outs, one of which was the on the river that improved him to a flush.
Allinpri started the one-on-one battle with KrazyKiddo with a 2,045,606 to 879,394 chip lead but when KrazyKiddo’s held against Allinpri’s the players were all but even again. This led to the pair agreeing to an even chop and leaving $6,000 extra for the eventual champion.
The additional $6,000 now resides in Allinpri’s account after he sent the Brit home in second place. KrazyKiddo initially limped at the 12,500/25,000 blind level, Allinpri raised to 70,444 and then called when KrazyKiddo raised all in for 1,112,980. KrazyKiddo held and Allinpri . Both players improved to a pair on the flop but when the turn and river failed to improve KrazyKiddo further, his tournament came to an abrupt end and Allinpri had won the Super Tuesday.
