- Clips of the week
May 9th was a great Sunday for PokerStars Ambassadors.
Sam “SamSquid” Grafton took down the High Roller Club: $1,050 Sunday Cooldown Turbo PKO for $19,768 ($7,940 plus $11,828 in bounties), but alas, he’s yet to start streaming (here’s hoping he does soon).
Thankfully, Parker “Tonkaaaa” Talbot was also crushing and recording every second for our visual entertainment.
Tonkaaaa not only took down the Hotter $109 for $5,898, he then went on to clinch victory in the fast-paced High Roller Club: $1,050 Sunday Supersonic Hyper, defeating 101 entries to win $24,518.
The Supersonic is often referred to as the ‘day saver’ as it falls right at the end of the main Sunday schedule.
It’s never easy, of course. It never is when you have Niklas “Lena900” Astedt on the final table.
Sometimes the only way to knock down one of online poker’s all-time greats is to leave it to lady luck.
The ‘call any/check’ didn’t quite get the job done. But with a massive chip lead, Tonkaaaa closed it out soon after.
Tonkaaaa also finished fourth in the $530 Sunday Marathon adding $2,651 to his Sunday winnings.
Same again this Sunday, fellas?
