Schmidl89 wins Online Casino Malaysia Turbo Takedown

 

The 12,000 player entry limit was indeed met, and after just over 9 hours of play Schmidl90 took down the Online Casino Malaysia Turbo Takedown for May

1st Schmidl89 $100,000

2nd Pokerguden $60,000

3rd L_Sprewell $40,000

4th biggboss120 $32,500

5th nevada_nl $25,000

A notable finish for ch0ppy in 17th (a former PokerStars Sunday Million winner), cashing $2500

The unluckiest man of the evening title goes to kendo217, who finished on the bubble in 4001st place (particularly annoying no doubt in such a wide-payment (1/3 of field) system).

None other than crosscourtbh (poker nuts will remember him) finished one further out in 4002nd place

Turbo Takedown of Stars

The first of the planned monthly “Turbo Takedown” tournaments on PokerStars is this evening. As we speak only 500 out of the 12,000 spots are left, so it looks very likely to fill completely

Out of the 12,000 entrants, 4000 get paid. A whopping 1/3 of the field.

The buy-in is 5000 FPPs (Frequent Player Points), and there is a $1,000,000 Prizepool. The 1st prize is $100,000

As I say, this is going to be a monthly event, so if you dont make it tonight, look out for it next month

Hit Me Paris… Another HDouble Adventure

HDouble once again made me laugh with his latest (non-poker) paragraph: Don’t you wish you lived near Beverly Hills?

Here’s what he wrote: “I probably came as close to hitting the jackpot as I ever will walking to lunch at work yesterday. As we were crossing the street, a black Mercedes SUV rolled up, and I was staring at Paris Hilton, who was 2 feet in front of me. I yelled to my co-worker “Push me in front of that car!”, but the driver sped up, and blew threw the stop sign before I could wedge myself under the tire. Man that girl is ugly.”
