These autumn days have been some crazy ones here at bitB Spins. Our top player gooby plz hit and won a €400.000 Jackpot while playing €50 Nitros on Winamax. He was just grinding like usual when suddenly he saw the Jackpot in the prize pool while eight more tables were simultaneously opened. The possibility of hitting such a game is 4 in 1.000.000! 23-year-old gooby plz works full-time for becoming a better poker player. Here at bitB Spins he made his way to $100 Spin & Go’s and now he received the biggest reward from his life for his hard work that he consistently did so far.
As we see dreams do come true!
We asked him to share with us some details about this great “Jackpot moment” by asking him some questions:
bitB Spins: Congratulations, hero! We are so glad to meet again. What did you think when you found out you were playing for €400.000? Were you stressed?
gooby plz: My heart started beating crazily in the beginning, but after a couple of hands, I was feeling surprisingly calm. I knew I had a good chance of winning if I’d just stick to my standard game, so didn’t feel that stressed during the game.
bitB Spins: It is a dream of every poker player to hit and win a Jackpot. How did you feel afterward? Were you shocked? What was the first thing you did after winning?
gooby plz: After the game also I was surprisingly chilled, I just stayed there sitting in front of my pc thinking like “Okay, I won it, what now”. Of course, I was very happy but I think I celebrated more my first win on the 1,000x game a couple of months ago, so this time I was more like a psychopath right after the game.
bitB Spins: At any point during the game did you feel like something is not going your way? Were you worried you may not win?
gooby plz: Not really, the game itself went really smoothly. I managed to build my stack steadily after first hands so there wasn’t a threat to drop off even if going all in and losing it. There’s only one spot I would’ve played slightly differently if I could decide now, but it wasn’t really a mistake anyway, just a tiny detail.
