PokerStars.com awards Game of Your Life prize

Special freeroll promotion from the world’s largest online poker site began on April 4 and ran for six weeks handing over in excess of $700,000 in cash.

Friday 27th May 2011



Leading online poker site PokerStars.com made one lucky Greek player very happy on Sunday evening after awarding him with $10,000 in cash alongside a sports event package valued at $100,000. Twenty-seven-year-old Konstantinos Gennaios took down the massive prize as part of the Isle of Man-licensed site’s six-week Game of Your Life freeroll promotion and now has the choice of going anywhere in the world to watch any sporting event with as many friends and family as he wishes up to a maximum budget of $100,000. Using the screen name ‘brave-83’, the audio-video production company employee from Thessaloniki overcame 20,126 players from around the world during Sunday’s Game of Your Life grand final and revealed that he may now book a trip to the upcoming NBA Finals. “It was an unbelievable feeling reaching the final table out of a field of over 20,000 players,” said Gennaios. “At that point I was pretty confident in myself that I could take it down and that I was meant to go all the way. To tell you the truth, I still haven’t realised the magnitude of my victory. I’ve been playing poker for the last five years with some small four-digit paydays playing micro and low stakes but never anything close to this. “I'm still considering what to do. If I decide to attend a game it will definitely be the NBA Finals accompanied by six or seven of my closest friends. It will give us a chance hopefully to watch LeBron [James] and [Dwayne] Wade take down their first championship together. I’ve always been a huge NBA fan, so when I first heard about the promotion I immediately knew the NBA Finals would be my choice.” PokerStars.com revealed that its Game of Your Life freeroll promotion began on April 4 and saw it give away a total of over $700,000 in cash.
