Robbie Bull and Ben Spraggons Are UK’s Latest P5 Triple Crown Winners
There are some poker players out there who will never experience what it is like to win a tournament online, it’s the way it is. There are some poker players out there, however, who seemingly win online poker tournaments for fun and a couple of such player stem from the United Kingdom.
Earlier this week, our friends at PocketFives.com published an article about Robbie “Adreny” Bull following his recent Triple Crown. According to the article, Bull’s Triple Crown – an award given to players who win a tournament on three different sites within a seven day timeframe – is the second largest of the year, which is a remarkable achievement.
Bull secured the first third of his Triple Crown when he took down the Monday Night on Stars at PokerStars.fr for $12,044.78 and four days later followed that victory up with a win in the 888poker $8,000 Tornado for an additional $2,645.00.
With one day to spare, Bull binked The Bigger $109 at PokerStars for a massive $41,424.77 score and to complete his first-ever Triple Crown.
Since being awarded his Triple Crown, the UKIPT London champion has come close to winning another! On July 6, Bull won the PokerStars.fr Sunday Supersonic for $7,354.37 and three days later took down a $109 rebuy event at PokerStars. He then had a third, fourth, and a fifth place finish in tournaments that would have locked up a second gong.
Joining Bull in the Triple Crown club, although he already had one to his name prior to this one, was Ben “Spraggs” Spraggons. A win in the 888poker $8,000 Tornado ($2,600), a victory in The Benjamin at Full Tilt Poker ($3,660) and a win in the partypoker Major $10,000 Gtd Turbo ($2,516) meant Triple Crown number two was Spraggons’.
Spraggons is actually on course to hit a third crown in the next few days. On July 21, he won a $10,000 guaranteed event at partypoker then on July 22 he took down The Big $55. He now has until July 28 to emerge victorious on another site to grab his third Triple Crown.
