Charlie “JIZOINT” Combes Wins the Super Tuesday For $75K
British poker players seem to excel in the PokerStars Super Tuesday tournament, a $1,050 buy in event that attracts some of the biggest names in the business to the virtual felt of the world’s biggest online poker site.
In June 2016, “CrownUpGay”, Elliott “elliottpet” Peterman, and “R_Scientist” chopped the Super Tuesday three-ways to join a long list of British Super Tuesday champions that includes Christopher “NigDawG” Brammer, Nik “Reriseallin” Persaud, Ben “vindog03” Vinson, Ludovic “ludovi333” Geilich, and Daniel “judgedredd13” Charlton who has been crowned champion twice.
You can now add the name of Charlie “JIZOINT” Combes to the list of British Super Tuesday winners after he topped a field of 414 entrants to get his hands on the $75,029.01 first place prize, a result that pushes Combes’ lifetime online winnings past the $6 million barrier.
Super Tuesday Final Table Results (October 25, 2016)
|1||Charlie “JIZOINT” Combes||$75,029.01|
|6||Pablo “gordiju” Gordillo||$16,097.85|
This huge score is Combes’ sixth-largest of his online career to date. In 2010, Combes won the UBOC $1 Million Championship at the now defunct Ultimate Bet for $230,446, which is his largest cash.
In March 2013, Combes was the runner-up in the PokerStars Super Tuesday for $90,831, and although this latest victory netted him less cash, all tournament players love being in the winner’s circle when the final hand is settled.
Only last month, Combes finished in second place in the $700 Super-Sized Sunday at PokerStars , a result that banked him $37,071, meaning he has enjoyed back-to-back months where he’s enjoyed a mid five-figure score online; can he make it three months in a row by winning big during November?
Another player taking down a Super Tuesday, albeit the $109 Mini Super Tuesday, was Ireland’s “kautostars” who came out on top of a 1,312 strong field to secure a $15,945.93 payday. Their haul could have been larger, but they made a deal when heads-up with Croatia’s “kurcuga666” before going on to win all of the chip in play.
