Scott Margereson Helps Himself to a $76.5K Score

Scott Margereson

Scott Margereson came agonisingly close to taking down a GG Spring Festival event at GGPoker on April 4, although he did come away with $76,535 for his efforts.

Margereson was one of 525 entrants in the H-02: $1,500 Marathon event, a tournament that saw $748,125 paid out despite the guarantee being set at $500,000. Seventy-one players received a slice of the prize pool with a min-cash weighing in at $2,936. This payout increased to $13,610 by the time only the final table of nine remained.

Two of our players reached the final table. Patrick Leonard ran out of steam in sixth-place, turning his second bullet into $32,274, leaving Margereson as our sole representative. Margereson busted in third-place and secured a $76,535 prize, narrowly missing out on a six-figure haul.
