Tags: DramaticDegen, partypoker, Travis Darroch
Posted on 19 November 2019 by "T".
It's indeed a great Sunday for Travis "DramaticDegen" Darroch of partypoker Team Online as he turned a humble $22 into a six-figure sum on November 17th. The Canadian poker pro had not expected to win a huge amount when he logged in to his partypoker account and started another Twitch stream. Darroch managed to grab a spot in this week's $1M GTD partypoker MILLION via a $22 buy-in satellite. T[...]   Read more » Travis "DramaticDegen" Darroch turns $22 into $106,308

Yes, this is a wonderful story to turn 22 dollars into such a good winning amount of money .... of course, in order to become a winner, he had to put in a lot of brain effort to play correctly, but of course, he also said good luck .... without it, it’s very difficult to win a tournament. ... but in any case, my congratulations .... it's nice when people win through the satellite

I see that they say that he is poker pro and that he is party poker team,so probably he had some big winnings in life,when they signed him,but this kind of money probably he didnt won!I think that we expect more news from this player!

If you are lucky, you are luck.
With only 22 USD he managed to get paid big time.
And the difference between his place and first wasnt that big, since there was a deal.
After his win, more will try their luck winning a place in the big ones with a satellite.
But you must be lucky in the main game itself also Smile

This is a great win for him! He probably already had a decent amount in his bankroll to justify playing $22 buy-ins on a swingy format as sattelites where you're not guaranteed any return even if you win. But still, really good return on his initial investment, well done for him!

It's always nice to be able to win a nice amount of money but for us this thing is almost unattainable. These professional players go on a pattern where you have the impression that they see your cards in your hand. It is very difficult for them to pay you and you are disappointed that you cannot increase the stack. Anyway, congratulations for the players of final table.

I played Satellite tonight at america's poker .... the tournament was free there and the winner of this tournament could take part in the tournament for $ 50,000 .... I got to the final table and was the leader among 5 players .... But that's all happened at night and I really wanted to sleep .... so probably my game has changed and in the end I could not win the tournament ..... very sorry Sad

I'm sorry for you. I know this feeling and many tournaments are over after it passes many hours of the night. Poker rooms offer a program that is beneficial for the West, including the UK which has a time zone with two hours earlier, than in my country.

This winner is a professional but you can also turn a sum of $ 22 into 5k or 10k. That's if you know how to play poker and to catch a major tournament where to catch a final table. This is super hard but if you have skills, then you can do good things.

I've turned 2 dollars into $750 before but that was on a slot game and playing those requires no skill at all just pure luck most of the time. So if you do it tuat way it's not super hard as you mentioned but nevertheless it's quite rare feat even among recreational gamblers.

I know this player DD, i used to watch him on twitch, him Tonkaaaa, Assassinato and couple of more, all i can say about DD it was about damn time he won big numbers, hes good, a bit on a tight side, but a good grasp of the game all in all.
I used to ask for a song for him to play on his stream, so at least i would not fall a sleep while watching, he also doesnt talk much Big Smile

It is always a dream to start from a small portion of money and make it big.

such dreams have a large number of people who do not have enough money to participate in major tournaments ... therefore too many people are trying to get involved in major tournaments through satellites .... and accordingly this is a very time-consuming task ... almost impossible ... but I wish you good luck in your efforts
