so the pr team finally created a heartbreaking story behind the $1Mil epic win.

love stars, it's one of those few places left in the world where poor handymen can become millionaires and live luxurious lives surrounded by there loving families and big boobed babes to entertain them.

Love it glad somebody who is struggling to make ends meets managed to get the highest 1.2m spin and go to date, happy for him as he can take care of his family better, i am sure there was days when he struggle to put food on the table or they cannot afford all the festivities and always have to do some sacrifice here and there. Feels his pain and i work too and do not manage to scrap enough, so knows how a "small" amount of cash can help!

I say GOOD for him.... Nice to see a guy like that take it down.... why not...? Smile Thumbs Up

...I voted for the pigs that fly thingy because if you have ever been to a Pink Floyd concert ripped on a few hits of orange double barrel or orange sunshine,....you will CERTAINLY know for sure that pigs can fly as evidenced on this cover of Pink Floyd Animals...(pic below) Big Smile


Proof that pigs can fly...:

That is very very nice for the man if it's true,it just seems like a made up story to me then again maybe it's just me getting cynical (or jealous Smile ) well done to the bloke if it is true and i hope he spends it wisely.

It is a good story for Pokerstars and it has been said this player mainly plays freerolls but it is just like the lottery where anyone who buys a ticket will have a chance to become a millionaire.
Hopefully it is true and it will be good to follow this guy and see if he spends his money on playing more poker. Smile

Handyman, Candyman, Dandyman. Is there anything russians cannot do?
You see from freerollers to 5 bucks a pop spank&go - that is some proper bankrollmanagement from a bot, and fabricating a fairytale story in no time is like putting cherry on top of the cake. Amaya never dissapoints me when it comes to bullsh1tt1ng, they are indeed the perfect craftmen 4 this.
At least they are good for something. Producing make-beliefs.

On second thought how about them other two other guys who were in this game with him? They must be so mad when they lost 900k!
Yeah the consolation prizes were good for anyone who ended up in the 2nd or 3rd place, but gaining 100k while loosing another 900k just with finishing 2nd would make me mad as hell.
Of course I saw their last hand, so putting your chance to the rest of da money at risk with a hand like that is not really a thing somebody would do with a clear head - they obviously played in total ecstasy, but still.

It's three winners by now. Thats craxzy. It should be one winner every 10 million games . Either it's a very popular game and there have been more than 30 million games by now (of 5$ sng's) or stars have been extremely unlucky to get hit three times or it's all a part of the promotion and they don't actually pay these winnings.

Three winners... I bet they are looking at the code that generates the multiplier right now...
Who knows, maybe they've got a decimal place wrong, by a few positions...

Well, becoming a millionaire by playing one game of Poker and that even with a very low buy in. These are the Cinderella stories of the Poker world which everyone lover so much. But ask yourself to how many people something like that really happen - very few.
