Scotsman wins package to Caribbean Poker Party for just $11
Millions Passport is a universal package to live events that can be won in satellites at PartyPoker. An important feature is its versatility, since you choose which Millions series to take part in.
Last week, Scottish recreational player John Holmes reached the Millions Passport finals. He managed to win a package to the Caribbean Poker Party worth $10 000, having invested just $11. It should be noted that the guy did all this after returning to poker, as he had a long break.
Scotsman’s success story at PartyPoker
In an interview with PartyPoker, John Holmes said that he had quit poker after facing personal issues. John speaks positively of living without the game, but recently he’s got a lot of free time and decided to return to poker.
«I never really enjoyed cash games and my preference is for small tournaments and attempt to get into bigger tournaments. The MILLIONS Passport caught my attention so I thought I’d give it a try. I’m so glad I did.»
John has paid $11 to register for the qualifying tournament to the Millions Passport in the hope of winning the cherished package. First, Holmes qualified for the semifinals, and then got to the Millions Passport finals.
At the beginning of the final day, John was in the 47th place on the participants’ chip count, but that didn’t bother him much. Based on the results of the tournament, he managed to get into the top ten winners who received the Millions Passport packages.
The Scotsman considers his victory quite surreal. Once, he was close to the finals, but back then John took only 18th place and was very disappointed. After that, our hero decided that he would make another attempt and work on his mistakes.
Holmes said that he was happy about the victory as a child, jumping around his apartment with joy. The player immediately called his friends to celebrate this event and drink something stronger than tea.
The euphoria will soon go away, and our hero will need to start serious training to show great play at the Caribbean Poker Party. An interesting is the fact that PartyPoker Team Pro Patrick Leonard volunteered to give a few poker classes to John for free.
Holmes gladly accepted such an offer, as the upcoming event will be the most expensive one in Scotsman’s life. In the Main Event Caribbean Poker Adventure, John will meet famous poker players at tables, therefore, he is looking forward to this event.
