Imagine how cool it would be to wake up on a Monday morning, check your emails, and discover that you have received a $1,100 WPT World Online Championships (WPTWOC) ticket that you were not aware you were in the running for. That is exactly what happened to “PokerJoker92.”
PokerJoker92 topped Leaderboard 4 of the Legend of the Week promotion. First place came with a $1,100 WPTWOC ticket, which he plans to use to enter the $1,050 $1 million guaranteed WPTWOC Mini Main Event for free!
The partypoker blog caught up with PokerJoker92 earlier this week and asked him about his poker story.
Who Is PokerJoker92?
“I am a 29-years-old mechanical engineer working in a metrology laboratory for a global company in Ljubljana, Slovenia,” PokerJoker92 told the partypoker blog, “I just became a father for the first time to my daughter three weeks ago, so for me, playing poker at night is currently a little different than it was before because I have to prepare to cuddle and possibly bottle feed my newborn with one hand to help my wife, while playing poker with the other! This happened in the middle of a tournament on Sunday. I must say that I managed to handle it rather well!”
PokerJoker92 told us that he receives many benefits and positives from playing poker. Being on the poker grind helps him to control his emotions and lower his stress levels. Furthermore, it has helped him in his business life thanks to helping him become a smarter person who is able to read others.
The Benefits of Playing MTTs at partypoker
Like many poker player, PokerJoker92 cut his teeth in the poker tournament world playing multi-table sit & go games. He now plays MTTs up to $33 on various online poker sites, but has a preference for partypoker.
“I see great benefit from playing on partypoker because the tournaments are time friendly to people with jobs. MTTs usually finish before 02:00 which is enough time to get at least five hours sleep. I see this as an advantage compared to playing on other networks.”
“I play poker for financial benefits, playing Fridays and Saturdays, and sometimes Sundays, but that depends if Monday is a holiday or I expect to have an easier day since a Sunday grind leaves you with a lack of sleep.”
Back-to-Back Clasico Titles
Despite a lack of volume, PokerJoker92 managed to win Leaderboard 4 in our Legend of the Week promotion. Not only that but he won the Clasico twice on consecutive days!
“I won the Clasico on Saturday when I beat more than 500 players. There was a little overlay too, which meant I won almost $3,000. It felt really good winning. Besides money, winning brings great emotions which usually last a couple more days. I was playing Sunday too and was unsure whether or not to play the Clasico again because I wasn’t really prepared to play until 03:00. But, since I won it on Saturday, I had to give it a shot on Sunday in case I won it back-to-back. And so it was, I beat more than 1,000 people, which was good for $4,000.”
Unfortunately, PokerJoker92 decided against playing the Clasico on Monday otherwise we could have had a back-to-back-to-back Clasico champion!
PokerJoker92’s focus is now to use his Legend of the Week prize to enter, and win, the WPTWOC Mini Main Event.
“I will use my ticket for the WPT $1,050 Mini Main Event ($1M Gtd) for sure. I am looking forward to playing it since I am running good in addition to playing great, the two are usually connected.”
As he went back to perform his fatherly duties, the calm and collected PokerJoker92 told us his poker goals for the remainder of 2021. He may have to rethink them if he wins the Mini Main Event.
“My goals in poker are no longer to become a millionaire or even become rich, but to simply earn enough extra money to treat my family with extras. That is what motivates me. We don’t need much because we have all we want. A couple of extra thousand euros per year is more than what we need.”
Here’s hoping PokerJoker92 grabs those extra couple of thousand, and more, when he takes to the partypoker tables in the $1 million guaranteed Mini Main Event.
