Australian becomes sixth PokerStars Spin & Go millionaire since Oct. 21

28 Oct 2015

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Another millionaire has been made on PokerStars Spin & Gos, with Australian player ‘ifipushud325’ becoming the latest millionaire on PokerStars.com, an Amaya Inc. brand. This is the sixth millionaire made this week, in a run that has smashed all expectations as players across the world have benefited from this extraordinary run of good fortune.

The $5 buy-in Spin & Go tournament (Tournament # 1,361,869,792) started at 5.48 PM Australian Eastern Time on 28 October (2.48 PM US Eastern Time, 6.48 AM GMT on 25 October) and concluded at 6.00 PM, making a wonderful afternoon down under after twelve minutes of poker play.

The runner up was ‘ModusPonen7’ from Germany, who won $100,000. The third-place player was ‘FlyEko’ from Russia, who also won $100,000. The tournament was over in 66 hands of poker.

‘ifipushud325’ had been all-in and at risk of elimination twice during the tournament when heads up against ‘ModusPonen7’ – When he had [Ac 2h] all-in pre-flop against the [Kd Th] of ‘ModusPonen7’ in hand #35, and hand #50 against where he had [8h 8s] against [Tc Ah]. In that hand #50, ‘ModusPonen7’ paired his ten – but ‘ifipushud325’ hit a set of eights on a board of [8d Th 6s Qs 3h].

Hand #66 was the final hand of the tournament, when ‘ifipushud325’ moved all-in with [Qc Td] and was called by ModusPonen7’s [Ac Kd]. ‘ifipushud325’ made a pair of queens on a board of [Jh 4h 6s Qs 8d], and with that, became poker’s newest millionaire, and the sixth new millionaire in the last week.
