Turbo Series: Spraggy final table appearance, Stars Rewards spin-up, and full Day 8 results

The second week of Turbo Series action is in full swing and Ben "Spraggy" Spragg has made his first final table appearance. That and all the other news from Day 8 below.


Spraggy makes Event #60 final table, finishes seventh

With a PSPC cash and several wins and major cashes live on stream to his credit, Ben "Spraggy" Spragg has had himself quite a year already. He added another highlight to his 2019 yesterday with his first Turbo Series final table appearance.

Spraggy's run came in Event #60, an $11 NL Hold'em tournament, which drew the second-largest field of any non-bounty Turbo Series freezeout held so far. He outlasted 7,130 players before falling in seventh place and earning a $1,050.20 payday.

Here are the full results from yesterday's play.

ITM finishes

Russia's Zapahzamazki collected a 19th cash on Day 8 to retain the lead for most in-the-money finishes during the Turbo Series. It was an even more successful day for Poland's biszibosz, who collected three more cashes to climb to a total of 18, good for second place overall. That's one ahead of Andreas "mrAndreeew" Berggren, who's been holding down one of the top three spots for the entire Turbo Series so far.

KO count

Even without any additional bounties collected on Day 8, vidanilo's weekend KO rampage leaves the player from Angola atop the bounty leaderboard as Day 9 begins. With three more Progressive KO events on the schedule today, this leaderboard could look very different tomorrow.

A successful day has Fintan leading the Ambassadors in KOs

After holding the KO lead among PokerStars Ambassadors for the entire Turbo Series, Spraggy slipped into second place yesterday. That's because his partner in streaming, Fintan "easywithaces" Hand, scored seven more knockouts in Day 8 action. Fintan now leads the other Ambassadors by four bounties.

Turbo Series ROI-alty

When Savva707 won Event #6 on a $1.10 satellite, it looked like nobody would even come close to matching the Russian player's 1,242.147% ROI -- until Day 8, anyway. That was when the United Kingdom's idzake turned a $2.20 satellite ticket into a second-place finish in Event #65 worth $26,469.90 after a heads-up deal.

idzake's finish was good for a 1,203,177% ROI -- only about 41,000% less than Savva707's massive return. But that's if you count the value of the satellite ticket as the starting point. It turns out that idzake actually earned that ticket in a Stars Rewards chest over the weekend, meaning that this was actually every poker player's dream: a complete freeroll.

Stars Rewards provided the UK's idzake with a satellite spin-up
