Excellent prize for Mr. Damon Graham and little by little he was building his victory, consistently and without pressure, I hope to achieve a quarter of what he achieved to win some day in poker hehe, his experience can serve as a motivation for us That we hope to win someday
Of course it was a very risky decision to spend $ 3000, but I am very glad that miracles happen and that person got a big win ... now he probably will find it more interesting job than he has now ... or just going to live on this money not working

Not a bad return on investment... $3000 to win $900,000. I would be pretty happy with that but it is still a huge amount to place on a bet in the firs instanc. I can't perceive of a day existing where I would be placing a bet that large, unless of course I win it in a satellite that cost somewhere around not a great deal. Well done him!
And now he is gonna pay a truckload of taxes which makes him the unlukiest lucky bastard of the Starbucks Universe of course. BTW 3k is not that big of a deal to pay, and Starbucks employees have decent employer contributions/benefits so the part in the article where they wondered how he could afford both entry fees does not make much sense 2 me...
