congratulations to this greek players,its just great success to be first in this 2020!when we see what he will get,it was all worth for him:All Diamond Club Elite players get a 60% cashback, a VIP package to the Caribbean Poker Party, and a free entrance to the MILLIONS Online event. A promotion that started on February 1, 2020 saw the first SPINS player and first cash game player win $50,000 cash. The second and third players to reach Elite status in SPINS or cash games receive $30,000 and $20,000 respectively.

but to play for 20 hours per day,its jus sick!

This Greek player is a phenomenal one if he managed such a thing. I always wanted to grow in level, but the lost pots made me give up quickly even if i was ambitious. I didn't want to deposit more often and that's the main reason for which i am not successful...

Every player from a country that is not with the top players in the world is great for the whole poker community.
After players from certain countries won big perused, you can see more players trying too become professional players.
Most of them will fail, but still, some could become known players.

Of course it is an achievement hitting this goal.
And the best part of it, is reading that his whole journey started with
only 20USD bankroll, which means that you can go a long way in this game,
by starting with practically nothing.
You have to be lucky also though Smile How many tried and yet failed in the process Smile

We miss this process because the software is very dubious and often does many favors to certain players. This is the truth and i cannot continue in this way. Others are ambitious like this greek, they have many bluffs but they succeed to win with them.

I'm curious what amount he invested and if has a good profit because it's great if managed that. Many professional players can lose significant amounts, if they do not calculate their investments well and their concentration is not at a good time.

I once made a couple of thousands of dollars from freerolls! Best run of my life. The only time I cashed it money. Still lost most of it later on.
With just a bit more luck I could have won even more, when running far in a Sunday special. One hand that would have gone my way and I would lead the tournament right before the bubble. But lost that run and got eliminated am hour later.

You managed to win a few thousand dollars from freeroll games? U must to be very lucky because i didn't get a chance to win more than $ 70- $ 80 in a free tournament, Anyway, the Greek player doesn't know how he made money, but he is a great gambler.

Won two dollars, made it into nine dollars, than 45, than into a 215$ ticket and than 1850$.
I was extremely lucky at that time because although I lost a few tournaments on the way, in those I won I had won more than a few lucky pots.
Had a few other runs but never that high. Not even close.

Congratulations on the games that brought u that money. You did some excellent tournaments because it is very difficult to achieve a performance like this. Maragatero earned about $ 600 with a free ticket which he received for free from BRM. I'm still waiting for a good bankroll but is very hard...

By the way. I chashed out 500$ (one of two cash out of my career) and managed to lose the rest, trying to many 215$ tournaments or heads up after tilting.
I hope if there will ever be a next time, I would be able to keep my money for playing longer time than last time, which only lasted a few weeks.
It's funny how you lose feeling for money - I could play for months on a 50$ deposit and lose 1,000$ in a couple of weeks just from tilting.

Many Greek players have left Greece , went in London , Malta or Cyprus to keep on playing their favorite games , on the platforms and poker rooms they desire , so as not to lose any advantage , and also the best cash games or tournaments .. Cause with the regulations very few sites are accessible here . Also , a very good reason to immigrate insearch of a more hospitable place and country for the poker games , is the attempt to find a country which imposes on poker winnings a very low tax . Not 40% or 30% , but way far less , cause these taxes on the long run they destroy the winrate , it's a tone of lost (stolen ) money Blink

Maybe he is one more of these greek players , maybe not , but the truth is many do as I described before . Actually , if I was a very good winning player , I swear I would have made the same , gone to Cyprus LOL Smile

well,somebody who play only poker in life or have some job that can do on internet,they can move in other countries,like this player,but other people cant and ofcourse its not fair!I know that cyprus is another greece country,but still he couldnt stay in own town in greece,but it was worth for him to do this and to earn even more from poker!

Even without laws against poker players, professional used to move to countries that had better tax laws for poker players.
Used to know a British player that moved to Gibraltar to not pay taxes on his profit.
In online games you don't actually have to move, just have other nationally and play via VPN.

He tried really hard to achieve this . He was sleeping many imes 4-5 hours ,and then start grinding again and again . Ofcourse he is a very good poker player , he must have so many solutions on many occassions and hands , so he must also have fun doing it , this should not be exhausting for him . I have few only solutions for zoom , or tournaments , then I see how great it is to know automatically , without any thought what to do , even if you lose , you know you did the right thing , then playing is so much fun , frustrating at all Smile

It is very difficult to maintain without losing but the most important thing is to invest a little and to earn more when luck comes. A blow of a few thousand dollars is beneficial because after that you know that u will make an interesting withdrawal. It's super hard to run like this Greek player.

This diamond elite club status has too many benefits , very important , it worths trying to achieve to get this status . 60% cashback, a VIP package to the Caribbean Poker Party and other gift , that's a lot to consider about , a lot to win Smile
PLO is his game , not sth unusual to see in many high stakes pro players , they are very good on this game , a game of a lot of skills and maths , extremelly difficult for me , but I am a fish , lol Smile
