All Revved Up For Poker
Some of you may have been aware that PokerStars ran a special tournament recently called 'The Big Race' where one lucky player would win a package to the European Poker Tour (EPT) stop in Prague, as well as a share of $2,500 in free sports bets. The idea as simple, finish in the Top 20 of the tournament and you would be allocated a driver for the Grand Prix in Russia. If your driver won the race then you won the package. In the end, the overall prize went to Roberta 'cicacica21' Ban from the United Kingdom and we wish her the best of luck at EPT Prague.

One of our PokerStars School members however came close as Zoran 'makedonec63' Jordanov made the top 20 and was allocated Sergio Perez as his designated driver. Perez went on to finish 10th overall but we still think it was pretty cool that one of our members had a one in twenty chance of winning the package. We caught up with him to find out how he felt about his Big Race opportunity.
 
Zoran 'makedonec63' Jordanov had a real chance of winning an EPT Prague Package.

'Poker and motor-racing, what a cool idea and I love both,' stated Jordanov. 'I'm very excited about this and I'll be watching the race at home with my son with a lot of potato chips and a beer or two'. Listing his favourite racing drivers as Vettel, Raikkonen and Verstappen he goes on to say that he would also be very proud to represent his country of Macedonia at the EPT Prague event. He's got a good experience of playing live poker being a regular player at the Flamingo casino in Gevgelija, the biggest casino in Macedonia. His biggest win to date, however, was playing in an online tournament on PokerStars where he won $1,500 for a 2nd placed finish.

Even though he was only a few places off winning a package to a major tournament we're sure that this is not the last we've heard from 'makedonec63' and who knows, maybe soon we'll see him taking down a big tournament for his beloved Macedonia. We certainly wish him the very best of luck!
