partypoker is proud to have its first ever Diamond Club Elite member, sp0ubledy, who made the $200,000 in rake in just eight weeks.
About the Diamond Club Elite
Diamond Club Elite is the highest level of partypoker's VIP program. Introduced on February 1, 2019, this new exclusive VIP club is designed to reward the site's most loyal players with live event VIP packages, up to 60% cashback and more.
Any player that opts into the program and contributes at least $200,000 in rake over a twelve-month period across any poker game type will be eligible to join the exclusive club.
Full Diamond Club Elite members will earn themselves $16,000 VIP packages to the Caribbean Poker Party held annually in The Bahamas, along with entry into November's MILLIONS Online worth $10,300.
In addition, members can benefit from exclusive VIP service at partypoker LIVE events, as well as dedicated 24/7 support lines.
partypoker will also reward players with $10,000 in cash upon reaching the 50% milestone ($100,000), along with a further $20,000 cash bonus once the full $200,000 rake target is reached.
To celebrate the launch of the program, the first two players to earn $200,000 in rake via either cash games or SIT & GO JACKPOTS will both receive 100% cashback, fixed up until 31 January 2020.
The "Diamond Club Elite" forms an extension of partypoker's main VIP program, "Diamond Club".
To enroll onto the original Diamond Club loyalty program and unlock up to 50% in cashback, players must commit to raking at least $100,000 over a set twelve-month period across any poker game type.
Members will benefit from their own dedicated partypoker account manager, plus the opportunity to attend hospitality sporting events.
sp0ubledy got busy in the SPINS games
After the Diamond Club Elite program was announced, Russian poker player ‘sp0ubledy' who currently lives in Malaysia got busy grinding in the SPINS games, playing 12-tables for around 10 to 16 hours a day - a steely determination he must have in order to become the first-ever Diamond Club Elite member. Fast forward 58 days later, he now enjoys the fruits of his labor.
Sure, sp0ubledy did a lot of hard work to reach the $200,000 rake milestone, but he also says Lady Luck has been with him on this one. He said, "Life has plenty of twists and turns. Being the first Diamond Club Elite member feels like a gift of fate. I just appeared at the right time, in the right place and with suitable skills."
He hit the $200,000 rake on March 29, less than two months after the Diamond Club Elite was launched. After 58 days of constant grinding, is sp0ubledy going to play regularly in the SPINS games? He answered, "Yes, I will keep playing SPINS for sure, but I will play less tables because grinding 10-16 hours per day at 12 tables doesn't give me much time to study and improve at poker."
sp0ubledy is intrigued at the competitive nature of poker and this is what attracts him to the game. If he's not grinding in the SPINS tables, he's definitely doing what he loves - playing heads-up games. A true-blue heads-up player can be quite formidable in the SPINS games since majority of each tournament involves playing one-on-one, and add to that a common feature of SPINS games have a winner-takes-all payout structure.
What made sp0ubledy decide to play almost two months of solid grinding on partypoker's SPINS? He replied, "For me this program gave me a chance to discover my potential and I found some fantastic results. I like how partypoker cares about its players, and now we have a really amazing place with nice conditions to play online poker."
sp0ubledy, as the first Diamond Club Elite player of partypoker, shall get:
- a $16,000 VIP package to the Caribbean Poker Party
- a $10,300 MILLIONS Online entry on November 2019
- a $10,000 cash payment when he hit the $100,000 in rake
- an additional $20,000 cash bonus when he reached the $200,000 rake milestone
- he is also entitled to a 100% Cashback until January 31, 2020
partypoker VIP manager Lee Puddephatt said, "Completing Diamond Club Elite in such a short time is an amazing achievement by 'sp0ubledy,' and it proves how much partypoker has grown in the last year."
Congratulations to sp0ubledy!
