The newest SPINS millionaire is partypoker player ‘OdwaznyKot', who has been fortunate to hit the jackpot this month.
OdwaznyKot is a professional poker player from Russia who has been playing for around a decade already. In that span of time, surely he has encountered a lot of various hands at the poker tables, but he was astonished when he triggered the jackpot multiplier in a $250 buy-in SPINS. He said, "Has this really happened to me?" He said he always believed jackpot winners are super lucky and never imagined he would be one of them.
The final hand of the tournament saw OdwaznyKot's Q9 more superior against his opponent's 108 after all the chips were committed pre-flop. This made OdwaznyKot win all the chips in play, therefore becoming partypoker's latest SPINS millionaire.
The two players who finished 2nd and 3rd place walked away from the tournament with $100,000 each. SPINS games involve a winner-takes-all format, unless the prize pool multiplier is 120x or higher. This monster-sized prize pool was due to a 4,800x multiplier being triggered.
The Second SPINS Millionaire
OdwaznyKot follows in the footsteps of James "James23C" Carmichael
, who became the very first SPINS millionaire in June 11, 2019. Carmichael won $1,000,000 from a SPINS tournament that cost him only $5 to enter.
OdwaznyKot would like to celebrate his win by going on vacation soon, and thanks to this financial freedom, he would like to dedicate more time to self-development. Having a million moolah gives OdwaznyKot the opportunity to pursue his non-poker interests. He keeps physically fit by practicing Muay Thai boxing and he keeps his mind sharp by playing chess. He also enjoys traveling and exploring other cultures.
OdwaznyKot said poker remains a big part of his life, and he admits he's tempted to enter some larger buy-in tournaments now that he has a considerable amount of bankroll. He transitioned to playing poker after being successful in the video game StarCraft, just like partypoker pro Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier. OdwaznyKot in his younger days won city championships and believed this would spur him on to greater riches. StarCraft gaming ultimately was not able to give him the financial freedom he was looking for, and so he decided to check out other ventures.
His search led him to decide pursuing a career as a professional poker player, which has been a great decision for him so far now that he has become a SPINS millionaire this month!
Why Choose partypoker
These days there are many poker sites available, so why did OdwaznyKot choose partypoker?
He answered, "I like partypoker's attitude towards professional players who love this game and devote their lives to it. Bonuses, promotions, leaderboards, rakeback systems are really amazing. It's great to see that party remains the platform where poker skills and mastery still dominate."
