Yevhenii Dushko Turns $0.01 Satellite into $19,184 at partypoker CPP Main Event

partypoker is happy to announce that there were a lot of wonderful stories surrounding the 2020 Caribbean Poker Party Main Event, and while everyone is raving about Diego Ventura's impressive victory for winning almost $880,000 as the champion, let's check out how a player from Ukraine turned a $0.01 satellite into $19,184!

Yevhenii Dushko finished 55th place in the Main Event, taking home with an amazing $19,184 prize. The best part in all this is that he won his $5,300 Main Event seat for just a single cent. Imagine $0.01 becoming $19,184!

The Ukrainian star won his way into Day 1A from one of the many centroll satellites. Just making it that far made for a great story but it appears Lady Luck wanted Dushko's story to continue.

"I got lucky during Day 1A when I had a set of aces over a set of eights and that helped build a stack and progress to Day 2. I felt I played quite well despite the obviously different level of skill compared to my usual limits; there were a lot of strong players."

After qualifying for Day 2, he had a full week to wait before the tournament resumed. He tried to go about his business as normal even though he knew he had the chance of a life-changing score.

"It was a normal week between Day 1 and Day 2. I was meeting with my girlfriend and my parents, but I always have the tournament in the back of my mind. It was a very important tournament and I knew I needed to cash. I am not someone who misses opportunities like this."

Playing against Poker's Greats

Dushko battled with several of poker's elite on his journey in the Main Event but two stood out from the crowd - Team partypoker pro Isaac Haxton and Michael Addamo.

"It was an honor to play at the same table as Haxton. He is the very definition of a professional poker player and he sets standard that everybody should look up to. Also, during Day 1A, I played on the same table as Michael Addamo. I really like how he plays. Just the memories of us playing together cheers me up and I am sure it wasn't the last time we'll do it!"

Addamo finished Day 1A as the chip leader and settled in 58th place for $18.147, which means Dushko outlasted him! Haxton found his way to the final table where he finished 5th for $200,659.

$19,184 is the equivalent of almost 550,000 Ukrainian Hryvnia. The average salary in Kiev, Ukraine is 10,000 Ukrainian Hryvnia, so this score is big for Dushko. Has he spent on anything extravagant?

"I haven't even thought about any big purchases to be honest. I know that I have to keep my head cool after winning this big prize. The money will help my life for sure, but I feel like I don't have to do anything spontaneous. It also will help me continue growing as a poker player. I am grateful that my friends and family treat my love of poker with respect and without the stereotypes about gambling. This is support was very important to me."

"I also want to thank partypoker for this incredible opportunity."

I couldn't earn more than about 550 dollars with just a few cents. It was something more special then,,, but i guess you have for try to earn more money. It is important to insist and maybe this day will come as well. Good lick, guys.

Converting pennies from dollars to thousands of dollars is incredible, but poker anything can happen is a very exciting game, and what makes it special is that anyone can be lucky enough to win millions of dollars in a matter of days in a tournament, Sometimes it is your day and things turn out well for you and you earn great amounts of money that can change your life.
 CALICUL12/12/2020 19:46:36 GMT
Yeah, i know. The feeling of earning something nice... when we don't invest too much is higher than make a buy-in and recover your investment and earn a few extra dollars. I want to win something bigger in poker but for that also need luck.
