- Tonkaaaa wins $169K at Spraggy’s house
- Mark “Naigo1” Foresta takes down back-to-back PASCOOP titles
- Clips of the week
PokerStars Team Pros Ben “Spraggy” Spragg and Parker “Tonkaaaa” Talbot are both in London for the UKIPT this week. One thing’s for sure:
We know who’s picking up the bar tab.
You see, Tonkaaaa has been staying at Spraggy’s house for a few days and over the weekend, the pair put in an online grind. Sunday’s session included the $5K Titans PKO event and Tonkaaaa was in the mix.
Needless to say, things went well.
They went so well, in fact, that Tonkaaaa ended the day with a big chip lead and returned on Monday evening for the final table.
Tonkaaaa’s smooth run continued. He even felted his good friend Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford on the final table.
A short while later, Tonkaaaa would take down one of the week’s toughest events for $57,865 plus an absolute monstrous $111,093 in bounties. That’s $168,958 combined.

Tonkaaaa wasn’t the only PokerStars Team Pro to have an insane week on the online tables.
Across the pond, Mark “Naigo1” Foresta has been busy grinding the PASCOOP and that grind has proved very fruitful indeed.
First, Foresta secured his largest ever score ($20,300) and his first title in a $200 event.
New High Score! This honestly goes down as my most exciting moment in poker and streaming yet. PASCOOP Trophy and title acquired.
After 3 second place finishes finding with gold just feels so amazing. Sun Run was on full display. Please let me thank a whole bunch of people 1/2 https://t.co/iksmMVulUT

Then he took down back-to-back titles the following night.
Can't believe we went back to back with PASCOOP titles. The hyper sun run was real for sure!
Will be live again tonight trophy hunting in the 4-card streets! Thanks everyone who watched!

Keep it going!
Nice win for GJReggie!
An absolute tragedy.
Misclick pays off.
That’s a good river.
Majin flops a straight flush.
SharkModeOn on fire!
I love this game.
Everybody sing! “How did he do that…”
The river of dreams.
Every single day.
