Patrick Leonard 2021

By watching the high rollers, it is hard to imagine that once they all started their acquaintance with poker with free tournaments. For example, Patrick Leonard is PartyPoker Ambassador who was last seen playing free tournaments at the beginning of his career.

Some days ago, Leonard decided to conduct an experiment and played freeroll with $530 tournament at the same time. PartyPoker Ambassador played in the following events:  

  1. The Tuesday 500 with $530 buy-in and $100 000 guarantee
  2. WPT 500 freeroll in which the tournament tickets were raffled

It would be funny if Patrick Leonard won the freeroll but lost $530 tournament. Nevertheless, he managed to reach ITM zone both in the freeroll and in expensive tournament. In $530 event, Leonard took the 14th place and earned $1 645. In the free tournament, the experienced player took only 629th place and enriched with 21 cents.
