Posted on 17 July 2020 by "T".

On July 9 Thursday, the 2020 WSOP Online Event #9: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Max attracted 568 players who rebought 368 times. The 1,026-entry field garnered a $974,700 prize pool, and after 10 hours of action, the winner of the $188,214 [...]   Read more » Online Poker Newbie Ron McMillen wins First WSOP Bracelet and $188K

That´s my man! An oldie who arrives at the top of the poker online world! I can keep my hope in a later career! After the big stimulus, I have to understand that he was a regular player of Mid-Stakes Tour in live poker. So, probably he is an ancient player of poker with a career of twenty years or much more. By the way, good for him, and ever is good could see a silver head win on a table!

Ron McMillen ("MacDaddy15" Blink is not the only poker player who won a Wsop tournament at the first live participation. There were others but his performance is remarkable. This man has done a lot to win a bracelet and deserves all respect.

He likes as it seems live poker , but due to this corona virus times , the restrictions and the decision to play many live poker tournaments , including WSOP , on online poker roooms , he , like many other live poker players , was forced to play online his favourite games . This was his first time online , his first game if I read correctly ,and yet he won this tourney , showing that if you really have it , if you know how to play poker live , you can also succeed in online fields of players in online tournaments and games Smile

I make a fast look for another piece of history about this man, but I only found the last WSOP. I would like to find his start point as poker´s player, how many times he did it, which were his triumphs, something to try to see in him my possible own history. So I just have to build it!

All of us want to make some difference and be known for it. This man does it! Be a champion at the end of the day, and goes to drink good champagne with his friends, has to be a nice feeling. I wait to feel it too. I maybe comfortable with a bit less than him, something like win a Valhalla tournament of Ragnarok Party Poker promotion (+ $ 1.500) and drink a beer in the bar of the corner...

With $200k he can buy a lot of things , for him or some of his beloved ones . We can see in the video celebrating with some of them , don't know if they are his family or friends of his , but for sure everyone is reaaly happy , as they should be Smile He drunk a little wine with some of his frinds to celebrate it , I guess now it's time to get back on the felt , he can be the same lucky and win more ??? I wish him this to happen to him , more winnings and good luck to him Smile

He is going on an extended vacation now because that's what English citizens do in their old age when they have money. I mean, it's important to them because for most people in the United Kingdom, it's ''a tradition'' to visit foreign countries.

In your world CALICUL, he could travel to all the countries making a holiday´s life. But in the real world with COVID everywhere maybe he wanted to think it a bit. All is very uncomfortable, and he would have to take two weeks of isolation in most of all his probably destination. I think that he could spend a part of the prize in some project, personal or familiar, and use the rest of it to increase his bankroll

I don´t understand you dule-vu. Why he couldn´t spend his money in anything he wants? I agree about the way that he won this prize, and had not traveled to did it because is an online tournament (that´s the news), but I was saying to CALICUL that he can´t travel to the world in holidays mode (good project!) because the frontiers are shut down in many countries.

I know that, my friend but there are many countries which have open borders. Coronavirus has almost completely disappeared and people can circulate in many parts of the world. A journey to 20-30 different places with same number of nations is adequate for this man.

This WSOP , although it is played online , it awards real WSOP bracelets to the winners . This might be the first bracelet for this old player , so he has to celebrate it a lot , and try to win one more , why not ??? I is a big win , a good example for other old in years players who play live but are afraid or feel impossible to play competitively in online poker , or for old players who don't play live for some reasons (maybe health reasons ) , but from their home , why not their bed , they might be able to play and , why not , win !!! Old in years players can be competitive also in online poker Smile

I don´t know antonis321, I think that this is not his first big win. The news told that he was a player of medium stakes in live tournaments, maybe he was a champion there. Because of the unknown part of his story, I was looking for it in the net. I thought that I could find some clue there, to may anticipate my own probabilities of a poker´s career. But I don´t find anything

maragatero , I think it's his first online tournament success , maybe also his first online game ever played (not sure completely about this last thing) . Live for sure , he has been playing for years , he seems to be a guy who goes to the casinos , stay there , play there , a guy who likes grinding and he's able to win $$$$$ . But this online win has it's special meaning and importance , that's for sure , not only for him , but , as we already said , for many players of his age , or even older Smile With good will everything is possible Smile
