Sridhar "sri100k" Sangannagari has done it. On Tuesday night, Sangannagari topped a field of 125 in the 2021 PokerStars New Jersey Spring Championship of Online Poker (NJSCOOP) Event #36-H: $200 NLHE [Super Tuesday], $17.5K Gtd, earning $5,096 for his dominating performance.

Sangannagari was one of the few dozen to have been a part of the action right away in Level 1. He was knocked out once during the late registration period, Shortly after registration closed, he found a double when his queen-nine got there against the ace-jack of eventual fifth-place finisher "TrashNinja00".

He took that momentum through the bursting of the bubble, and then saw queen-nine treat him right once more after he three-bet it from the big blind and double barreled on a king-nine-four-deuce board into the king-ten of Steven "FadeOrHoldz" Madara. A nine on the river gave Sangannagari trips and put him atop the leader board, where he stayed the remainder of the tournament.

Final Table Action

After Frank "thewholefunk" Funaro eliminated "Q8kicksass" and Dan "AvaGray" Lupo was felted by Sangannagari in quick succession to bring about the final table, "Renorick1946" entered play under one big blind and was eliminated on the first hand. Shortly thereafter, Sangannagari surpassed 1 million in chips, at which point he held more than one-third of the chips in play with eight still remaining.

The short-stacked "IGOTCRABZ_33" then bowed out in eighth before Sangannagari got back to work, winning a huge coin flip with ace-king against the pocket fours of Funaro for a pot of 750K and then extending his chip lead even further by knocking out "thekidraf04" in sixth. "thekidraf04" was second in chips at the time and got stacks in on an ace-high board with ace-king against Sangannagari's ace-jack after it flopped top two pair.

A level later, "TrashNinja00" busted in fifth and "Batzz88" fell to runner-up "Jeebus459" just a couple of hands later to bring about three-handed play, which continued for a full level before "Jeebus459" knocked out Benji "OtB_RedHeron" Felson in third place after Felson's ace-king lost a coin flip against pocket jacks. From there, Sangannagari took roughly a three-to-two chip lead into heads-up play and never looked back. In less than a level, he ground "Jeebus459" down, taking a chunk of their chips before flopping a flush and getting the rest of it against top pair, top kicker.
