The russian player hit the jackpot prize in $250 buy-in spins tournament
partypoker player “OdwaznyKot” has become the newest player to win a $1,000,000 top prize through the site’s ‘SPINS’ games.
SPINS are three-handed jackpot-style online poker tournaments ranging in buy-ins from $0.25 to $500 that play out in double quick fashion. Before a card is dealt, partypoker’s multiplier randomly determines the size of the prize pool.
The player, who resides in St. Petersburg, Russia, has been playing poker professionally for 10 years and admitted to partypoker that he couldn’t quite believe he’d triggered the jackpot multiplier in the $250 buy-in game – boosting the payouts on offer by 4,800 x.
OdwaznyKot’s first thoughts were: ‘Has this really happened to me?’ as he always considered jackpot winners to be incredibly lucky, never imagining that one day he would join them.
The final hand of the tournament saw OdwaznyKot’s Qh9h successfully hold up against his opponent’s 10c8h after all the chips were committed pre-flop to leave OdwaznyKot standing alone as partypoker’s latest SPINS millionaire.
Second and third place finishers in the tournament both won $100,000 apiece for their efforts meanwhile.
For the win OdwaznyKot follows in the footsteps of James “James23C” Carmichael, who made history on June 11, 2019 to become the first ever $1,000,000 SPINS jackpot winner created by partypoker.
OdwaznyKot now plans to take a vacation and devote more time to self-development thanks to his newfound wealth, while remaining committed to improving his poker game. Admittedly, OdwaznyKot can now wet his feet in some of the bigger games on offer!
Outside of poker OdwaznyKot is a fan of chess and also enjoys spending his time practicing Muay Thai boxing, travelling and exploring other cultures.
Like many of poker’s top players, OdwaznyKot initially carved out a footing in the game of StarCraft and even won his city championships during his youth, believing this would spur him onto greater riches.
However, StarCraft ultimately wasn’t able to provide OdwaznyKot with the financial freedom he was seeking, and so he decided to reinvest his time into other ventures. This in turn led OdwaznyKot to eventually pursue a career as a professional poker player, a decision that has been truly vindicated with the player’s landmark victory.
Explaining what attracts him to partypoker, OdwaznyKot said: “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.”
