Circus Poker Player wins $145,000 Rio Sit n Go Jackpot!
The Rio Sit n Go Jackpot tournaments are a great way to significantly boost your poker winnings, extra rewards are available to players who win three or more consecutive tournaments and with just a $20+$3 buy in offer real value for money. So, how did our hero win $145,000?
The Jackpot is paid to any player who wins 6 consecutive Rio Sit n Go tournaments, starting at $25,000 the jackpot grows by $10,000 per week until it is won. Usually it is won after 3 to 5 weeks, making a usual Jackpot somewhere between $55,000 and $75,000.
After 12 nail biting weeks of not being won, the Rio Jackpot rose from $25k to $145k – one of the highest jackpot prizes we’d ever seen.
The massive jackpot was there to be won and all someone had to do was sit tight and win 6 consecutive Rio Sit N Go Jackpot tournaments. And, that someone was a Circus Poker player from Canada who for obvious reasons wishes to remain anonymous.
Our winner took up the challenge and after winning 5 out of 5 Rio’s. Let’s pause for a second to review how close our hero came to elimination on that 5th tournament, he was dealt a pair of Kings, only to see them cracked by a set of sixes, seriously limping now, he was down to 300 chips, with only 2 other players left in the tournament. However, some superb aggressive play, mingled with a healthy dose of luck, got him back in the game. He overcame adversity, and won it, meaning he just needed one more victory to get his hands on the $145,000 Jackpot. (which was no mean feat in itself), our winner sat down in the 6th knowing that victory would net them the massive jackpot - talk about playing under pressure. And here’s how our winner did it...
Cool as ice our winner had his sights firmly set on that $145k jackpot and nothing was going to stand in his way. By 16:45pm there were just two players left and just when a monster hand was needed, he was dealt a King Spades and King Clubs, surely his Kings would not be cracked again?.
When the contender pushes all in from the small blind, the call is instantaneous, the contender shows 6h4s – making the odds roughly 80% in our hero’s favour!
The flop improves the contenders chances with 3s7h3h giving them a 5 for a straight, or two hearts for a flush, the turn of 2s doesn’t help him and removes his flush chance so he’s left needing a 5, which doesn’t hit. 9d completes the flop and our player from Canada is the winner!
So a big congratulations to our Rio Sit N Go Jackpot winner – you know who you are!
