Parker “888tonkaaaa” Talbot Finishes Third in Breeze

Event #169 $15,000 Breeze drew 366 players, which surpassed the advertised guarantee by creating a $18,300 prize pool. It took Italy’s “Roma4892” eight hours and 29 minutes to capture the title for $3,511.77, and while it was an impressive and well-deserved win, there’s no denying a lot of poker fans were let down. That’s because Twitch superstar and 888poker Ambassador Parker “888tonkaaaa” Talbot was at the final table, ultimately finishing third for $1,921.50.

Also at the final table was Bulgaria’s “Noob3R1337,” who you may recall placed third out of 1,433 players for $20,398.75 in the same Super XL Mini Main Event that 888poker Ambassador Dominik Nitsche won.

Finally, Poland’s “Chester20o” made a deep run for the second day in a row. After finishing second in Event #162 $20,000 Monsoon on Friday night for $3,129, “Chester20o” placed fourth in Saturday’s Breeze for $1,464.

On Saturday, he showed the world he’s no one hit wonder as he navigated a field of 282 players to win Event #173 $25,000 Saturday R&A for $6,799.62 and his second title.

Also at the final table was “joga_pra_cor,” who back on Day 4 of the XL Inferno won Event #52 $20,000 Americas for $6,900. He made a good run at his second title but came up short busting in eighth place for $831.25.
