Electrical Engineer Wins 2015 World Series of Poker Millionaire Maker
A 27-Year-Old Electrical Engineer has just won the World Series of Poker Millionaire Maker event. Adrian Buckley walked away not only with the gold bracelet, but also with a huge $1,277,193 cas prize. Buckley could not believe that he had just won such a large tournament event, especially seeing as how his largest winnings was $5,546 he won last year.
During this event, there were 7,275 entries, with a buy-in of $1,500. It was hugely popular, and it truly demonstrates that amateur and professional poker players have the same odds of winning, and it seems Buckley was able to play his cards just right in order to beat out so many opponents.
It was not an easy road, not only with the amount of players Buckley had to defeat, but the quality as well. At the final table, he had to battle it out against bracelet winners Mike Sexton, Erick Lindgren, Justin Pechie and David Miscikowski. Olivier Busquet, World Poker Tour champion, was also at the final table.
Needless to say, Buckley showed, or rather did not show, his talent and poker face. We will have to continue watching the other WSOP events in hopes we hear and see more of these great victories.
