AfterH0urs‘ poker dreams came true this week when he became a millionaire courtesy of taking down a $100 buy-in SPINS tournament where he literally hit the jackpot!
AfterH0urs bought into the three-handed hyper-turbo SPINS tournament with fellow partypoker players “patotecomoherma” and “YIYOOO”. Before the software dealt the first hands, the prize pool multiplier span and span before settling on 12,000x, meaning the trio were playing for an incredible $1,200,000 prize pool! As is the case in all SPINS where the prize pool multiplier is more than 120x, all three players locked in a prize instead of the standard winner-takes-all format.
YIYOO lasted five hands before busting out. They walked away with $100,000 for their efforts.
The all-important final hand occurred during the 40/80 level, where both players had 450 chips. Patotecomoherma moved all-in with , and AfterH0urs called with . AfterH0urs was already ahead but extended his advantage on the flop. The turn gave Patotecomoherma some hope because another four or a king would see them win the pot and the $1 million top prize. However, the completed the board and improved AfterH0urs to a two pair, which resigned the runner-up to a still welcomed $100,000 consolation prize. AfterH0urs saw a massive $1 million make its way to his partypoker account.
A delighted AfterH0urs told partypoker, “To be honest, this was a completely standard morning – wake up, grab a cup of coffee and start playing poker. At that time I was playing around 10-11 tables and did not even notice the jackpot for quite some time. I continued with my multiple table gameplay and a single, slightly different, table finally caught my attention; I had never seen a yellow table. I thought to myself, checked the prize pool and could not believe my eyes….$1.2M! Is this really the moment I was looking forward to my whole poker career? It was showtime, I focused on the table, tried not to be intimidated by the large prize pool, applied the tactics and decisions I knew were profitable in a game and won. What is next you ask? Proper investment and a little bit of fun enjoying life!”
