Default Online Card Room Pays Big

  • Online Card Room Pays Big

    Online poker database HighStakesdb.com has announced that one lucky player won $300,000 this week on the Microgaming Poker Network off a single hand.

    A Swedish player going under the moniker ‘Ingrid_Swede’ won $330,732.64 after winning a heads-up clash at a $200/$400 no-limit Hold’em table, producing the biggest reward for September.

    HighStakesdb.com said that the heads-up battle was competitive and tense with a number of significant pots already having been played when ‘Ingrid_Swede’ raised to $1,400 from the button. Opponent ‘I_Knockout_U’ then re-raised to $4,400 before ‘Ingrid_Swede’ called.

    On the 6d-7d-8c flop, ‘I_Knockout_U’ bet out $8,200 and ‘Ingrid_Swede’ then raised to $28,000. ‘I_Knockout_U’ responded by moving all-in for a total of $160,967 and ‘Ingrid_Swede’ called immediately.

    Qs-3s finished out the board, ushering in the showdown and ‘I_Knockout_U’ showed 9h-8h for a pair of nines and a busted straight-draw. ‘Ingrid_Swede’ had, however, flopped the nuts holding Tc-9c and took home the over $330,000 pot.

It is interesting how things have changed in 1 year. The record of the largest online poker pot is constantly beaten, and nowadays $300k is not major.

On top of my head, current record is around $850k if not more as this was a few weeks ago.

ferdinand,

I have edited out the link in your post.

We do not allow people to come here, resurect 3 year old threads just to post a BS comment and spam a link.

If you in fact would like to become an active participant of our forum we welcome you, but if your intention is to only spam your time here will be quite short-lived.

This got me to thinking aboput the original post, here 3 years later the above is still considered a fairly large pot....

Rick
