Poker player qualified for ME Caribbean Poker Party for one cent
In 2020, many popular live poker series have moved online for obvious reasons. The annual major series Caribbean Poker Party is no exception, and this year it will be also carried out online, namely at PartyPoker.
Satellites to the series are already available in the lobby of the poker room. Players have the opportunity to qualify for the CPP tournaments with large guarantees for little money, and in some cases, virtually for free.
PartyPoker invites you to take part in the satellites with buy-ins starting from one cent. A poker player from Ukraine managed to qualify for the Main Event with a $5 000 000 guarantee through one of such satellites! Just imagine how the guy will feel if he manages to get to the final table, where millions of dollars will be played.
Arduous journey towards the goal
Alexander began his difficult route to the goal with qualifying games for one cent. According to the poker player, he had won about 30 tickets to $2.20 satellites. The next stage was satellites for $5.50. The guy reached that stage 5 times, but each time he left the satellite with nothing.
Alexander did not give up and kept trying to qualify: he succeeded and moved to stage 3 (satellite for $55). There he faced an opponent who constantly went all-in, with almost any two cards. This helped Alexander to double up a few times and amass a good stack to eventually reach the final stage.
The hardest thing for Alexander, as is often the case, was the bubble period. He was truly card dead for an extended period of time: his stack got smaller with each hand and soon reached the mark of 10 BB.
Decisive action was needed to turn the tide of the game in his favor. The guy realized that he had been very close to his goal therefore he took a wait-and-see attitude, which helped him enter the ITM zone. A few minutes later, Alexander won the final satellite and got a ticket to the ME Caribbean Poker Party!
For Alexander, this will be one of the most important events in his life, so the poker player is going to be very cautious when playing the Main Event. As a minimum task, the player is eager to get in the money; as a maximum task, he intends to reach the final table.
