Gibraltar (PRWEB) January 11, 2008
Online poker player Saage from Finland has had a happy start to the New Year, and is over $225,000 richer thanks to consecutive days of winning tournament play at MANSIONPOKER.COM (http://www.mansionpoker.com).
Saage secured a first place finish in the December 30 Grand Tournament to pocket $203,040 at MANSIONPOKER.COM.
Saage was well warmed up for this event, having won the Euro Grand Prix $70,000 Guaranteed tournament, earning a healthy $22,875 in prize money the day prior.
MANSIONPOKER.COM's grandest tournament lived up to its reputation, with an incredible 847 players turning out to vie for the lion's share of a staggering $847,000 overall prize pool in the December Grand Tournament.
It was a stellar performance from the Finn, who proved poker wise and Hold'em savvy in his first major tournament win at MANSIONPOKER.COM.
The final hand saw Saage dealt pocket rockets on the big blind Heads Up against his opponent's A-3 off suit.
All the money went in pre flop and the board showed 7H-2S-QD-TC-6H, with Saage's pair of Aces holding up to take the pot and first prize.
Book a seat for this month's $500,000 Guaranteed monster prize pool at MANSIONPOKER.COM for the best shot at January's Grand Tournament glory and a chance to walk a mile in Saage's shoes.
Players can buy-in directly for $1000+$40 at MANSIONPOKER.COM (http://www.mansionpoker.com) or participate in any one of its many easy on the pocket online qualifiers throughout the month, from as little as $1.
The Grand Tournament is a No Limit Hold'em Freezeout 'flights' event with a player-friendly 10,000 chip starting stack, a 30 minute blind structure, and an option of two starting days. Surviving players from both heats automatically earn a ticket to the Final with their 'flight' chip stacks carried over.
Friday and Saturday, January 25 and 26 at 19:00GMT are the 'flight' details to diarise this month, with the final to be played out on the evening of Sunday January 27.
