Meet the Double Platinum Pass Winners
Remember the knitting mom who scored a $30,000 Platinum Pass package last year by outlasting a field of 21,000 players all while making supper, taking care of kids and knitting a sweater?
Well, she has won the Platinum Pass again.
Jennifer Carter, who lives in Canada secured yet another $30,000 package by qualifying online at PokerStars via the ongoing Mega Path promotion.
Jennifer will be heading to play the PSPC event for the second year in a row. This time the PSPC event will take place in Barcelona, Spain next year in August 2020.
“I don’t know how I did it,” she told PokerStarsBlog. “Because it’s me. I can’t beat $.01/.02 online! It’s unbelievable. I was literally baking muffins during this tournament, doing dishes. And then in Step 4 I was just sitting in my bed knitting. I don’t have a bankroll because I can’t even win a $1 tournament. But I can win the biggest ones. I just don’t get it.”
She is not the only player to have won the Platinum Pass twice.
Paulo Milani, who won his entry through the Brazilian Series of Poker (BSOP) last year became the first double Platinum Pass winner.
How did he win it? You guessed it right! Mega Path qualifiers.
“I found this Mega Path, a very affordable way to win,” Paulo told Alan Ferreira of SuperPoker. “It’s not easy, but you have to be persistent and thank goodness I’ve got it,” he said.
The Mega Path satellite system is currently the only route available online and we believe it is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to win a Platinum Pass.
The online qualifier starts with a $2 Sit & Go culminating in a final step 3: PSPC Qualifier tournament guaranteeing one Platinum Pass to the winner.
PokerStars is running this promotion in the majority of PokerStars’ markets including the Indian and European segregated rooms.
