Christopher “NigDawG” Brammer is the latest British pro to take down the PokerStars Super Tuesday after he won the $1,050 buy-in event on August 11. Brammer, a former world number one in the online poker rankings, walked away with $106,780.00 for his victory, the fourth largest score of his online career.
Brammer was one of 562 players who bought into this week’s Super Tuesday and was in the company of a significant number of fellow Brits. Once Brazil’s “konnh4nd” fell in 64th place to burst the money bubble, the likes of Oliver “ollie_p” Price (32nd for $3,091.00), Billy “b8chatz” Chattaway (26th for $3,372.00), “robbydoooo” (14th for $5,620), and “triad_kil934” (10th for $6,744.00) all secured a payout.
There were three Union Jacks displayed in the Super Tuesday lobby once the final table was reached, Brammer, Keith “Kungfumonk” Johnson and the UK-based Spaniard “talonaquiles.”
Johnson was the first of this trio to bust, the silver-haired hero unable to win a flip with his versus Rasmus “RasA86” Agerskov’s .
Poland’s “krawiec” fell in eighth place before Brammer did what Johnson couldn’t and won a flip with Big Slick. Jason “jakoon1985” Koon open-shoved for 15 big blinds with and Brammer re-shoved from the small blind with . An ace on the turn of the board was not what Koon wanted to see and his deep run ended with a seventh place finish.
Canadian duo “KatePkrPro” and “dragonwarrior” then bust in sixth and fifth place before the dangerous Agerskov exited to leave only three players in the hunt for the $106,780.00 first place prize. All three players were bust by Brammer.
Those three became two when Brammer continued his one-man wrecking spree, when he snap-called with on a flop when talonaquiles moved all-in with what turned out to be . Brammer’s flush held and heads-up was set.
Brammer, holding 2,570,000 chips to the 230,000 of “justholdplz,” was firmly in control and took just two hands to wrap up the victory.
Looking down at , Brammer set his opponent all-in and was quickly called and shown the dominating . The flop looked set to double the stack of justholdplz, but Lady Lucj was shining down on Brammer who watched on as the turn was followed into play by the straight-completing to send justholdplz to the rail and, no doubt, Brammer into raptures.
