FOURTH MILLION DOLLAR SPIN & GO JACKPOT WON
PokerStars player ‘Korpieworm' secures $1 million pre-Christmas win
Pokerstars online player ‘Korpieworm' collected an early Yuletide present this week when he picked up a $1 million in the fourth million dollar Spin & Go jackpot awarded in 2016. Two other players at his $100 table, ‘carlmurr' and ‘korrupt911', collected $100,000 each.
The game lasted just 48 hands and took just over ten minutes to complete. 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.
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 seventeenth millionaire winner since the game was launched nearly two years ago.
