Right now, there’s a huge poker festival underway on a popular poker platform called 888poker. In fact, according to 888 officials, this is the biggest festival to have ever taken place on the site, and it is called Millions Superstorm.
It started on September 10 and will end on October 11. More than $8 million is being awarded to the best players throughout 480 tournaments.
One of the most recent winners was a player from Russia who uses the online moniker “bazzarov.” They claimed the biggest cash prize after topping the 888Millions $160 PKO 8-Max.
This event came with a total of $50,000 in guaranteed prizes, and Russia’s player managed to win a total of $9,637. More than half of that was the prize money ($4,997), whereas the other half was the amount they managed collect via bounties ($4,640).
The Russian player has limited data about them on the web. So far, it’s only known that they took part in approximately 408 games on the web and made about $33,800 by playing online poker. The average buy-in price they paid was $46, with the biggest buy-in being $530.
However, this event wasn’t the only one that took place in the previous period, as 888poker hosts dozens of events daily. After all, they need to fit 480 events in a month, so the schedule had to be tightly packed if they wanted to succeed in their intention.
