PokerStars Super Tuesday – “Run dat Game” Victorious

Another weekly episode of the hugely popular weekly midweek poker tournament Super Tuesday at PokerStars comes to an end with the winner this week being “Run Dat Game”. The player who is now known as Chris Lovett is a former winner of the ‘Sunday Warm-Up” with a payout of $94,000, with that win in fact coming just 17 days ago.

This event may have just fallen a little bit short of that score yet it is another title to add to his belt. There were 468 players in total that took to the virtual felt with the resulting prizepool being $498,000, with 68 player sharing it and the biggest slice of $94,000 being put aside for the inner.

PokerStars Team Pros!

There were a number of PokerStars Team Pros in action which is to be expected, with most of them failing to make too much of an impression. There was Nacho Barbero, Liv Boeree, Caio Passagno and Vivian Im who all missed the money whilst the only one that did was Johnny Lodden.

The action throughout the session was fast paced, which is what you would expect with regards to an online tournament that attracts thousands of players. However, as we approached the final table the play started to slow down a little with the chip leaders slowly picking off their opponents.

The Final Table!

Seat 1: 3aHocKanycmy (351,400 in chips)

Seat 2: Festivuss (241,206 in chips)

Seat 3: Run dat Game (285,128 in chips)

Seat 4: I’am_Sound (599,831 in chips)

Seat 7: stato_1 (186,120 in chips)

Seat 8: th’Kick (174,919 in chips)

Seat 9: dpeters17 (355,278 in chips)

Once we reached that final table there was one player in control being “I’am Sound” who had almost a 2 to 1 chip lead over many of his opponents. The eliminations didn’t take too long to come along with us finally being left with just the two going into heads up.

“Run dat Game” and “3aHockancmy” entered a heads up session that lasted just ten hands, with the eventual winner coming out on top in seven of them. The final hand occurred when he held As-5s against the pocket Kings of his opponent. Despite the constant betting he called all of the way through a community card selection of As-6h-9c-7s-9h to win the title.
