Massive well done to Marti Roca De Torres, who won the 2017 WSOP Europe main event! What an incredible return of investment! It is, indeed, a Cinderella story. And congratulations also to Maria Ho on finishing in sixth place.

Yes so interesting to see this story, it is so great to do such thing in your life, to make more than one million of euros from the thing you love to do- play poker. This guy in past mathematics professor is very lucky person. Also form only 220 satellite this is so big return from money invested

Only 220 buy in, turned out to more than 1 million euro.
That is how you want to put your money in the market Blink
The decision he made back then paid off. At least so far.
I doubt he could make that money by teaching after all Smile

Many congratulations to Marti Roca De Torres on winning this prestigious event and over a million in prize money. To win this after qualifying through a satellit is quite phenomenal

Thats great to see, that every player have the chance to win a big live event with online sat´s. I think this was the best way to qualify with playing sat´s and step tournaments. So every player with a small budget have a little chance to make a dream come true.

I googled around and just found out that Maria Ho has a sister. Her name is Judy Ho. OMFG! She is absolutely gorgeous! I actually like her better than Maria. Taiwanese women got one of the finest a**es in the world, I am telling you!

thanks for the wonderful photo .... what a pretty girl !!!! ..... Maria Ho when I saw her playing was very nice to me ... and this photo is just a bomb ..... it's a pity that she is in front of the last day was the chip leader and then somehow incredibly quickly lost all his stack .... good luck to her in future tournaments !!!!

It is possible, but you also need luck to hit something like that.
No matter how good player you are, if you keep getting bad cards, you wont go to far,
since you will have to take more risks. Even with premium hands you can get beaten real bad Smile
