‘handbt1’ from Germany is the fifth instant Spin & Go millionaire this week

In the first year of Spin & Go’s at PokerStars, there were five new millionaires made.  In the last week of celebrations for Spin & Go first anniversary, there have been five more. The latest millionaire is ‘handbt1’ from Germany, who won $1,000,000 last night on PokerStars. His win means that there have now been five new millionaires made this week – as many new millionaires have been made in the last week as the whole previous year.

The $5 buy-in Spin & Go tournament (Tournament #1,360,472,695) started at 12.35 AM German Local Time on 26 October and concluded at 12.48 AM, creating yet another poker millionaire from thirteen minutes of poker play.

The runner up was ‘egg1981’ from the Channel Island of Guernsey, who won $100,000. The third-place player was ‘Lyuda1975’ from Ukraine, who also won $100,000. The tournament was over in 55 hands of poker.

‘handbt1’ who led for the majority of the tournament won the match with [8s 9h] all-in preflop against the [3h 3d] of ‘egg1981’.  ‘handbt1’ made a pair on the flop of [Th Td 8d], and there was no further help for ‘egg1981’ as the board ran out with [As 4d].

In addition to this tournament, there has been an unprecedented spate of instant millionaires made on Spin & Go tournaments this week:
-On 26 October, ‘barrakuuda4’ from Estonia became a millionaire from a $100 Spin & Go tournament.
-On 25 October, ’prophethicks’ from England became a millionaire from a $5 Spin & Go tournament.
-On 22 October, PokerSchoolOnline member ‘wrawras’ from Brazil became a millionaire from a $100 Spin & Go tournament.
-On 21 October, ‘Samara Lúcio’ from Brazil became a millionaire from a $5 Spin & Go tournament.

Spin & Go's are fast-paced, 3-Max Hyper Turbo tournaments which feature 500 chip starting stacks. Each tournament has a randomly drawn prize pool that will award between two and 3,000 times your buy-in. PokerStars offer Spin & Go's at nine different buy-in levels: $0.50, $1, $3, $5, $7, $15, $30, $60 and $100.
