PokerStars Super Tuesday: 'jonwayne69' Triumphs Again
Team PokerStars Pros Jose 'Nacho' Barbero and Randy 'nanonoko' Lew were among the 328 runner field but neither managed to ride the money bubble. It took over seven hours before a final table was set. 'jonwayne69' led the way with 365,617 chips.
'jonwayne69' was seeking a remarkable repeat triumph after taking down the PokerStars Super Tuesday event a month ago. The unknown alias earned $71,208 for that triumph and he eliminated 'Improved' ($11,152) and 'CHEFcaller' ($14,432) to increase his advantage this time around.
'Big Dennys' then made his mark by taking down 'Garrin4e' ($18,696) The latter needed to come from behind to crack his opponents pocket queens but the 2-K-A-A-5 board ended his run in fifth place. 'Garrin4e's exit was swiftly followed by the demise of 'xxCelticFCxx' ($27,060).
The biggest pot of the tournament then reduced the field to the leading two. 'Big Dennys' ($36,080) jammed all in for 580,430 with A-Qos but found no salvation on the 2-9-3-T-7 as 'eisenhower1' took a commanding lead with a pocket pair of kings.
'jonwayne69' promptly doubled through with A-Tos before a heads up deal was brokered. 'eisenhower1' ($56,813) locked up the largest share but he could not prevent 'jonwayne69' ($54,214) from a second triumph in as many months. The talented pro sealed the deal with a two pair as he collected an extra $3,000.
