Jason Somerville Wins $100 Spin & Go For $2,500

Jason Somerville Wins $100 Spin & Go For $2,500On Thursday, August 20th, Jason “jcarver” Somerville was just about to finish streaming his latest Twitch.tv session when he decided to entertain his audience with a last punt at one of PokerStars’ $100 Spin & Go’s, the highest buy-in offered by the site. That proved to be a fateful decision, as Somerville instantly hit a 25X multiplier, and ten minutes later the Team PokerStars Pro completed the three-man tourney to scoop its $2,500 winner takes all prize.
Having hit the biggest possible multiplier at the end of his ‘Run it UP’ session, the 28 year-old pro commented: “That’s a big Spin & Go! I’m glad we played one more. I’ve never had a 25x before, this is a whole new experience for me. But now I need to win this one – that would be a pretty sick way to end the day. Let’s just win this one.”
However, “jcarver” had to first make his way past fellow competitors “JWPRODIGY” from Australia, and “santiagogome” from Mexico. Despite a preflop shove on the very first hand, the game subsequently settled into a more cagey affair until JWPRODIGY (3-3) responded to a raise from Carver (A-9) by going all-in. The board then ran out Q-5-A-6-9 to bounce the Aussie from the tourney, leaving Somerville with a 2:1 chip advantage over his remaining opponent.
Just two hands is all it would then take before the deciding hand was played with Somerville (A-8) betting and “santiagogome” re-raising all-in holding K-Q. Somerville made the call, and after the board came A-J-5-9-3 his pair of aces was good enough to scoop the competition’s $2,500 top prize.
“Boom, baby! I love playing poker so much! I am so glad I played one more Spin & Go,” commented an elated Jason Somerville after the hand finished.
Jason Somerville has since posted an edited version of the $100 Spin & Go on YouTube, and here are some of the reactions from his viewers:
