Small Stakes Pro Andrew Watson Secures Triple Crown $22,168 Poker Victory

Poker Pro Andrew Watson Secures Triple Crown $22,168 VictoryAustralian poker pro Andrew “Higher Wattage” Watson has just completed a famous poker achievement after being awarded the Triple Crown last week.
The Triple Crown award, as described on, is awarded to online players who manage ‘to win three different tournaments on three different sites over the course of one week (any seven day period).’ In addition, each tournament is required to have at least 100 players and a minimum $10k prize pool.
The 23 year old Aussie from Wollongong, New South Wales began his incredible week by taking down a $33,000 Guaranteed Knockout event on Full Tilt Poker, to pocket an impressive $11,729. Next, he won an $11 single re-buy and add on tournament on PokerStars, netting $4,930 in the process. Watson even stayed on PokerStars long enough that day to win a $5.50 re-buy tournament, but victory was required on a third site to complete the Triple Crown.
It was on Ultimate Bet that he managed to complete that task, when he won the Sniper $20,000 Guaranteed tournament on UB to book a $5,509 win and secure his Triple Crown award. As well as the accolade associated with the Triple Crown, the $22,168 won by his triple victory is all the more remarkable considering the relatively low buy-in tournaments the Aussie pro entered.
So, well done to Andrew “Higher Wattage” Watson on his amazing run, but in the meantime, Benn “Risk2Dupside” Skender narrowly missed out on securing a Triple Crown of his own having won four tournaments on Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars, worth $18,968 in prize money but failing to notch up a further win on another site within the allotted seven day time period.
