Mark Walgora from Pennsylvania received the $30 VIP loyalty gift at the beginning of July, the winning streak that followed culminating in a $35,000 Rio Jackpot Prize win.
'I always thought these things were rigged, but I guess I was wrong,' Mark said after winning his sixth straight $20 + $3.50 Rio 'Jackpot Sit 'n' Go' tournament, to claim the jackpot prize.
Titan Poker's jackpot sit 'n' go tournaments are extremely popular and attract veteran and novice poker players alike. The tournaments start immediately when enough players join the table, and tournament winnings are distributed according to Titan Poker's regular payout structure. If a skilful player succeeds in winning the appropriate number of consecutive tournaments, he is also entitled to receive a huge jackpot prize.
Mark said, 'The last game was a war and was really hard because I didn't want to be over aggressive, yet didn't want to be weak. I finally got more aggressive to steal blinds and regain my lead.' Some courageous decisions later he was delighted to see a flop which completed his straight. The hand, the tournament and the Rio Jackpot Prize, was his.
The Rio and Maui Sit 'N' Go Tournaments offer starting jackpots of $25,000 and $15,000 respectively. The Rio and Maui jackpots grow progressively each week if no player manages to win enough consecutive tournaments to claim the jackpot prize.
