After long hard-fought day of poker, GG Poker Event H-83: $10,300 Super Tuesday has come to an end. Standing tall at the end were Mike Watson and Mark Radoja, who agreed to a deal once they reached heads up.
Watson is no stranger to poker accolades. The Canadian pro already has both a World Poker Tour and European Poker Tour title under his belt — with live cashes totaling $12,410,292. His efforts today will add ~$360,000 to his bankroll.
Today’s event attracted 98 unique entrants and, due to unlimited re-entry, the total number of entries ended up being 182 – swelling the prize pool from a guaranteed $1 million to $1,820,000.

GGPoker Spring Festival H-83: $10,300 Super Tuesday Action of the Day
The field began relatively small with fewer than 30 players to start, but by the time late registration ended — 98 unique entrants had filled the field with no shortage of notables. Among those who cashed, but fell short of the final table, are Stephen O’Dwyer (24th place), Daniel Dvoress (20th place), Isaac Haxton (18th place), Sam Greenwood (17th place), Fedor Holz (13th place), and Kristen Bicknell (11th place), who was among one of the last people to late reg. She fell just short of the final table when her ace-six suited fell to Watson’s ace-queen.
The money bubble burst when Sam Kelopuro’s ace-four suited couldn’t hold against Stephen Chidwick’s jack-eight suited.
Peters started the final table with a commanding chip lead relative to the other players. His 8 million in chips dwarfed the next biggest stack of 2.5 million owned by of “illywilly97”.
Ami Barer fell in 9th place after shoving her short stack in with ace-jack and failing to improve against the pocket tens of “illywilly97”.
After a bit of raise-and-take it action, Andrii Derzhypilskyi found himself very short after blinding down to less than 100,000 chips. He was eliminated in 8th place after making a crying call and failing to improve with nine-three in a blind versus blind battle against Watson’s ten-jack.
Chidwick would be next to go in 7th place after he found himself short and shoving queen-ten into the jacks of “illywilly97”.
Soon after, Radoja avoided elimination by doubling through Peters with ace-ten after calling a shove from Peters’ queen-three and holding.
Nick Petrangelo was eliminated in 6th place after losing a race with king-jack suited against Peters’ pocket tens.
Almost immediately after, Timothy Adams found himself in a race with pocket sixes all-in preflop against the ace-jack of Watson. An ace on the river ended Adams’ tournament life in 5th place.
Radoja then doubled up again after waking up with ace-queen in the big blind against the ace-five of Peters from the small.
“illywilly97” saw his deep run come to an end in 4th place after another blind versus blind battle when his king-jack suited failed to hold against the ten-nine of Watson.
Shortly after, Peters shoved for his last 1.9 million after dwindling down steadily throughout the final table. His queen-jack suited was called and dominated by Watson’s king-queen. Peters failed to improve and was eliminated in 3rd place.
Just a few hands after heads-up play began between Watson and Radoja, both players agreed to a deal, with Watson taking home the title and slightly more money than Radoja.
