Leafar33 wins one of the WPT $15,000 poker packages

Every Sunday until Sunday 30th May you can win $15,000 WPT packages at PartyPoker’s tables.

The best news is that you get to choose which WPT event you want to play and you can qualify by playing freerolls or you can buy into the final satellite directly.

Today we present the story of one of the first winners of this new WPT poker promotion, Leafar33.

Doubled up 2 times with AA

I qualified through a 88$ satellite, I played 3 satellites in the week. The tournament went very well, I was always above average, doubled up 2 times with AA. At the final table the first 5 people went out quickly, but the bubble play took almost 1 hour (2 Canadians, 1 Brit and 1 Spanish). People played very passively. I won a coin flip KJ against AQ, with the K on the flop, I doubled up and went through.

On Monday I spoke with the bubble guy and he told me that he lost the Internet connection for 30 minutes (he was the chip leader and a very good player, have notes on him). I think this was the real key moment for all of us at the final table.

I started to play at PartyPoker 3 years ago, and enjoy playing at the tables because the software is so good, I have many options and the level of the play is so good that I can learn everyday at the tables.

I’m very happy to play a WPT event, I usually play live tournaments (have 4 flags at The Hendon Mob, 3 in Spain and 1 in USA, and more than $60,000 winnings in these 4 tournaments). I played the main event WSOP last year, through a satellite in Las Vegas (I won 2 tickets, sold 1) and played through the day three.

I will try to play the WPT Grand Prix Paris

I saw some WPT on YouTube. I think I will try to play the WPT Grand Prix Paris, because it is a 10,000 Euro buy in, it is close to Madrid, and a nice city.

My favourite players to play against are Phil Ivey, William Thorson, Patrick Antonious, Daniel Negreanu, Tom Dwan, Vicky Coren, John Juanda, Gus Hansen and Jason Mercier. It would be a nice table to play (the fish is in the tank).

I’m a 42 years old, have a real estate company. I have two children (8 and 6 years old). The photo is from the Main event WSOP 2009 (10,000 $ buy in). I usually play big tournaments through satellites, I think I’m really good in this kind of tourneys.

You can be the next one to win the $15,000 WPT package at PartyPoker. Check out the full qualifying structure and start playing!
