PokerStars Super Tuesday – “punisher03” Comes Out On Top

tuesday signIt is not often that the PokerStars Super Tuesday provides a heads up session that lasts more than 90 minutes or even one that lasts half of that time. However, this particular tournament did supply us with that as both “punisher03” and “FaceStealer” traded blow after blow in a straight out fight across 219 hands before one of them finally came out on top.

The winner was the Mexican “punisher03” when both players pumped everything into the middle on a coin flip. “punisher03” was holding the As-Kh whilst “FaceStealer” held pocket nines and had the slight advantage. That advantage was gone on the flop of a board of 5h-4c-Kd-6c-Qd leaving “punisher03” with all of the chips in the event and a payout of $93,071.50.

The $1,050 buy-in event started with an impressive field of 485 players which in turn created an even more impressive prize pool of $485,000. Amongst those players were a couple of PokerStars Team Pros in Caio Pessagno and the ever popular Nacho Barbero, though both of them had events they will want to forget as they were ousted before the paying positions.
