PokerStars Ambassador Benjamin “Spraggy” Spragg takes down the $27 Deepstack and $33 Bounty Builder in back-to-back nights, both streamed live on Twitch.
It’s always nice to get a win under your belt and give your bankroll a welcome boost, especially with just two days before the start of the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP).
But you know what’s even better? Two wins in two days.
Spraggy kicked off his winning ways on Wednesday night when he took down the $27 Deepstack for $1,249. On the final table, he made it look easy…easy to make quads, anyway.
Not long after that he took it down. “Obviously we’re just making a lot of very strong hands,” he said, as he turned two pair in what proved to be the final hand.
“It feels good to win a tournament again,” Spraggy said after that victory. “Obviously it’s not an absolutely massive one, but it feels good to take down the first place.”
He wouldn’t have to wait long to take down a massive one.
Last night (Thursday May 9) Spraggy went at it again.
He managed to build a big stack early in the $33 Bounty Builder, locking up more than three times the buy-in bounties before the tournament even reached the money bubble.
He made some great reads along the way, including this value shove in a spot where many players might have opted just to check back. He even called his opponent’s hand correctly.
Fast forward all the way to heads-up, and Spraggy had a 2:1 chip lead. When he got it in with Q♥Q♣ versus his opponent’s K♥3♦ and a king hit the flop, though, he was ready for a long heads-up battle.
Thankfully a long battle wasn’t needed when a queen hit the river.
For that victory, Spraggy banked $5,365 plus $4,371 in bounties.
Now it’s SCOOP time. Keep those trophies coming, Spraggy.
