Sean Prendiville Continues Hot Streak With Super Tuesday Victory
Dublin’s Sean “MonkeyBudgie” Prendiville could be set to enjoy something of a purple patch if his recent tournaments results are anything to go by.
Prendiville narrowly missed out on glory on Aug. 18 when he entered the $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up 8-Max at PokerStars. The popular pro was joined by 175 opponents and managed to outlast all but one of them on his way to collected $27,454 for his second-place finish. Jans “Graftekkel” Arends was the only player that finished above Prendiville.
Ireland’s “TheKhopMan” won last week’s $1,050 Super Tuesday and the title stays in the Emerald Isle for another seven days because Prendiville triumphed in this week’s edition.
A field of 71 entrants competed for a share of the $71,000 prize pool that was divided up among the top eight finishers.
Prendivlle’s fellow Irishman Dan “NukeTheFish!” Wilson busted in 48th place with British star Scott “Aggro Santos” Margereson and Luke “Bit2Easy” Reeves falling by the wayside in 45th and 12th place.
The final table was as tough as they come with the likes of Kevin “parksy1066” Parkes, Damian “pampa27” Salas, and German “germaxi” Christiansen all present and correct. This trio of stars were left in Prendiville’s wake, as was Aaron “AaronBeen” Been who had to make do with the $14,568 consolation prize.

Prendiville now has near as damn it $2.8 million in online poker tournament winnings plus an additional $802,000 from his live poker escapades. His largest online score weighs in at $145,577, Prendiville’s reward for a third-place finish in the $1,050 NL Hold’em event at the 2013 PokerStars SCOOP. More recently, Prendiville finished second in a $530 SCOOP 6-Max PKO for more than $60,000.
The Irishman is going to be one to watch during the upcoming $75 million guaranteed World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP).
