‘bladsonpoker’ from Poland becomes a near-instant millionaire in $5 tournament

PokerStars has put the ‘s’ into ‘millionaires’ with Polish player ‘bladsonpoker’ winning $1,000,000 after just 7 minutes and 18 seconds of poker play on his mobile device at PokerStars. The player became a mobile millionaire as part of the ‘PokerStars Makes Millionaires’ promotion – the second player in a week to win $1 Million in a Spin & Go.

The $5 Spin & Go tournament started at 19.39 CET on April 28, with ‘bladsonpoker’ winning the $1 million top prize after just 29 hands of poker – effectively an average of just over $34,482 per hand. Here is a video of the tournament that was recorded by Friend of PokerStars, Jaime Staples, on his Twitch channel: http://psta.rs/1ECksvX.

The runner-up was ‘hooomlesnurr’ who won $100,000. The third-place player, ‘ROliver ceo’, also won $100,000.

Remarkably, while playing the $1 Million Spin & Go, the Polish mobile millionaire was also registered in other tournaments, including a $4.40 No Limit Hold’em tournament with 4,767 other players. Despite winning $1 million, ‘bladsonpoker’ continued playing the $4.40 tournament on his mobile device, eventually being eliminated almost 90 minutes later.
