Gibraltar-licensed online poker room MansionPoker.com has revealed that one lucky Danish player scooped $55,000 after leading the field in its monthly $250,000 guaranteed freezeout multi-table tournament.
MansionPoker.com stated that, with a buy-in of $320, its regular Sunday evening tournament attracts over 800 players each week to make it one of the more popular competitions.
The lucky winner, who uses the nickname ‘Iconstruct’ and has been a regular visitor to MansionPoker.com for about four years, played for around seven hours on October 5 to take the title and its money prize. ‘Iconstruct’ revealed that this was his biggest win as he is usually a cash game player preferring the $5/$10 and $10/$20 no-limit tables.
'I also won a seat to the World Series of Poker and I won the $150,000 guaranteed tournament with MansionPoker.com, so it's definitely my kind of site,” said the winner.
‘Iconstruct’ bought directly into the tournament but MansionPoker.com also offers a route via satellites at a lower entry cost. The player revealed that he is now looking forward to the start of the third European Championships of Online Poker, which run from November 24 to December 7, where he may be seen playing in some of the bigger events including the $1.5 million guaranteed main event.
“It's always great to hear that our players are being rewarded with the prizes they deserve,” said Faye Morse, Head of Communications for Mansion.
“It just goes to show what we've always believed, that MansionPoker.com members are quality players.'
