Wins $1 Million at PokerStars
On the afternoon of May 9, a German poker player going by the alias of “Check^On123” sat down at a $100 Spin and Go tournament at PokerStars. It turned out to be the best decision of his career.
Woroms444 was the first casualty of the final table, falling at the hands of Check^On123, and setting up what was essentially a $900,000 heads-up match.
The final hand was befitting of the occasion and was, as the cool kids say, sick.
PokerStars hopes to make another nine of its players millionaires before the PokerStars Makes Millionaires promotion ends in June. Two more PokerStars players will become millionaires by playing Spring Championship Of Online Poker (SCOOP) events as a brace of these tournaments guarantee a $1 million prize to their champion and the online poker giant is hoping the Spin & Go jackpot will be hit again.
