Our Daily Legends tournaments continue to prove extremely popular thanks, in part, to the way they’re structured. The limited late registration period and the fact there’s only a single re-entry allowed means everyone playing our Daily Legends MTTs does so on a level playing field.
We had a superb success story earlier this week when Ukraine’s “Dau_na_chai”, Andrey to his friends, won not one but two of our Daily Legends on the same day for combined prizes of $10,000.
Andrey lives in Odessa, Ukraine and is something of a veteran of the online poker world, having started playing eight years ago.
“I only play tournaments,” Andrey told the partypoker blog, and I would say PKOs are my favourite format. I also enjoy football, but poker is definitely my main passion and takes up most of my spare time.”
It’s a special feeling to win multiple tournaments in one day
The poker aficionado logged into his partypoker account on October 26 and registered for a bunch of tournaments. The Magnificent 77 and The Predator were among the MTTs adorning Andrey’s screen. A few hours later, Andrey was the last player standing in both those events, adding around $10,000 to his bankroll!
“It is a special feeling to win multiple tournaments in one day. It was a very good day because I also won the $22 Predator on the same day as the Magnificent 77!”
Andrey didn’t have matters his own way because he was extremely short-stacked at a crucial stage of the Magnificent 77.
“I was down to only five big blinds after the bubble burst. I just simply tried to not lose any all-ins and it worked!”
It sure did work and Andrey eventually emerged victoriously. He wasn’t particularly deep stacked at the final table of The Predator, but kept his cool, had a little luck, and got the job done.
“I had 15 big blinds at The Predator’s final table. I doubled up with pocket nines against sixes and then clashed with the chip leader with queens versus ace-king. We both put in 30 big blinds each even though there were plenty of short stacks alive. I got lucky and won the hand. After that, it was easy to play as the chip leader.”
Limited re-entries are a big hit
Even if he didn’t enjoy a double victory, Andrey would still be a big fan of the way our Daily legends are set up.
“I really like the recent changes to the tournaments at partypoker. To be honest, I prefer not to make more than one re-entry myself so I am happy that regulars can’t purchase multiple re-entries.”

Our Daily Legends run around the clock in a variety of formats and with buy-ins to suit all bankrolls. The two events Andrey took down are two of the most popular Daly Legends tournaments.
