Lucky Player Turns $15 into CAD $9000 at WSOP/GGPoker Ontario

After winning a $15 satellite into the $150 GGMasters event on GGPoker Ontario, ‘R U MAD’ closed the deal & took home the win & the $8885 first-place money.

One of the best things about poker is that it’s a game that gives everyone a chance, and the events that took place over at GGPoker Ontario — which is partnered with WSOP — a few days ago reminded us of this.

A player under the username 'R U MAD’ entered a CAD $15 satellite to the operator’s staple $150 GGMasters event. With some luck and some skills, he secured a seat in the $50K guaranteed tournament, but that was just the beginning.

They then outlasted every player in the tournament and were the last person standing, bagging CAD $8,885 for their efforts!

It may not be the biggest or the most impressive story the online poker community has heard. Still, it certainly falls under the “great day at the office” category, and we are pretty sure 'R U MAD’ had nothing to be mad about after sending his last opponent to the virtual rail!
