- Tonkaaaaa takes down Bounty Builder Turbo Series title
- Clips of the week
Parker “Tonkaaaa” Talbot entered his Sunday session on June 6th having enjoyed two winning sessions in a row.
With no plans to end that streak, the PokerStars Team proceeded to cash in nine tournaments, win two $5K seats, and he still had some gas left in the tank to take down a cheeky Bounty Builder Turbo Series title.
The tournament was a $109 6-Max Hyper (Event 184 of the series) and attracted 1,343 entries before late-reg ended. That built a prize pool of $139,416 with $9,495 plus bounties awaiting the winner.
Your boy Tonkaaaa was cruising and took it down to three with this pot.
With a big heads-up chip lead, the duel only lasted one hand before Tonkaaaa had all the chips in front of him.
On a worse day, this score would have been an incredible day-saver. But after an already successful session, it was simply “really, really juicy stuff”.
For his Bounty Builder Turbo Series win, Tonkaaaa banked $18,802.93 ($9,495.47 for 1st + $9,307.46 in bounties).
All in all, another “outrageous day” for a guy who claims he always gets unlucky.
