PokerStars player secures $1 million pre-Christmas win

23 Dec 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Santa began his Christmas deliveries early with a stop at PokerStars.com, making one player a millionaire and two others $100,000 richer in a matter of minutes. Santa's visit to a $100 Spin & Go table saw three players at PokerStars, an Amaya brand, become the lucky recipients of some pre-Christmas cheer -- to the tune of $1.2 million in prizes. 'Korpieworm' scooped $1 million with 'carlmurr' and 'korrupt911' walking away $100,000 richer after a fast and furious game that lasted just 48 hands and little more than ten minutes.

In the final hand, 'Korpieworm' called an all-in preflop raise from a short stacked 'carlmurr' with 5h 5d and must have been elated to see his opponent's 3d 3c. The board ran out 6c 9c Ad 8h, 7s giving 'Korpieworm' a straight (which he really didn't need!).

Spin & Go tournaments are three-max hyper turbo tournaments with just 500 chips given to each player. Each tournament has a randomly assigned prize pool giving players the chance to win up to $1,000,000 in minutes, as was the case this time around. Buy-ins range from $0.25 to $100.

'Korpieworm' is the fourth player to win the tournament this year alone and the seventeenth since the game was launched nearly two years ago.
