Six Consecutive Sit’n’Go Wins Earns Poker Player $110,000 Jackpot

Six Consecutive Sit’n’Go Wins Earns Poker Player $110,000 JackpotA regular at Paddy Power Poker has just scooped the biggest jackpot prize ever won at the site after coming first in six consecutive six-man $50 + $9 sit ‘n’ go tournaments.
The Fort Knox Sit’n’Go Jackpot, as it is called, guarantees a minimum pay-out of at least $50,000 to the winner and grows progressively bigger each week until the prize is won. On this occasion it was lucky Irishman Phil ‘flukesfla’ Flavin from Tramore in Co. Waterford, who would perform the remarkable feat to take home the whooping sum of $110,000 for his golden winning streak.
Phil’s incredible evening got off to a good start after winning his first Sit’n’Go on Friday 19th February and as his night progressed his excitement mounted as he placed first in one tournament after another. By the early hours of Saturday morning the tension must have been incredible as Phil got heads-ups with the last opponent standing between him and the $110,000 jackpot.
Lucky for Phil his good fortune was not about to change and instead of a $750 consolation prize for finishing either 1st or 2nd place in 6 consecutive “Fort Knox Jackpot Sit ‘N’ Go” tournaments, his record-breaking run ended in glory as he walked away with the whole prize.
Following his victory, Communications Manager for paddypowerpoker.com said: “I’m delighted to have awarded Phil with this massive sum. Taking down six consecutive Sit’n’Go tournaments is no mean feat, especially when you play all six of them on the trot!  Hopefully we’ll have another few jackpot winners to congratulate in the next few months; the prizes are ready to be awarded!”
In the meantime, Flavin’s lucky streak may have a bit further to run after previously winning an Irish Open 2010 package on the site, and so will be vying to scoop the €100,000 Sole Survivor prize at Ireland’s biggest tournament, as well as a piece of the €2,500,000 prizepool.
