The $1,050 Super Tuesday at PokerStars is one of the most exiting tournaments for neutrals to watch thanks to it being a very pro-heavy event. It is also a tournament that players from the UK and Ireland perform well in.
In the past year we have seen Craig McCorkell and Andrew Hulme each take down a Super Tuesday with players such as Toby Lewis, Dara O’Kearney, David Vamplew, Sebastian Saffari, Charlie Combes and Jareth East reaching the final table of PokerStars’ most expensive weekly tournament.
This week’s Super Tuesday had a more compact field of 540, which is still impressive when you consider how many players are currently competing in the Eureka Poker Tour and the many other live events taking place in Prague.
Among the 63 players who cashed in this week’s Super Tuesday were British based American Joe “ender555” Ebanks (59th), “BWFCLEE” (53rd), “CasbahFlow” (15th), Bournemouth-based Spaniard Oscar “MendaLerenda” Serradell (13th) and the in-form Jareth “jareth3542” East (11th). But one man managed to make it through to the final table and almost went the full distance and won before falling in third place. Step forward Scott “Aggro Santos” Margereson.
If you follow our weekly online poker rankings article then you will no doubt be familiar with the online alias “Aggro Santos” because we have been touting him as one to watch for several weeks now. The Chesterfield lad has had some impressive results recently, including a third place finish in the Full Tilt Poker Sunday Mulligan ($8,160), a third place finish in Event #13 of the recent FTOPS ($11,588) and an outright victory in the PokerStars.fr High Roller ($18,423).
Margereson’s largest cash, until this Super Tuesday, topped the scales at $44,428, his prize for winning the Winamax W Series Event #10, but now that amount has been put into the shade by the $55,350.00 he won for his third place finish in the Super Tuesday.
Congratulations (although commiserations may be in order knowing tournament players) to Margereson for his third place finish and new record cash.
