PokerStars player secures $1 million pre-Christmas win
23 Dec 2016
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.
