Player wins $18K in less than 24hrs at Cool Hand Poker!

29th September, 2009

Unbelievable news has come through from cool hand poker today. A Swedish 21 year old with the alias LyanTerror27 has scooped an amazing $18,000 at the online poker site! This is despite only joining the site 24 hours prior to the win!

Victor K won after playing Cool hand pokers Bad Beat Jackpot which is designed to add excitement to the game similarly to online casino games. The jackpot grows until a player loses a hand with cards equivalent or better than four of a kind (8s or higher). Each player receives a percentage of the jackpot, with the largest amounts going to those who are active in the hand. Victor folded so won $18,000 whilst the actual loser took home over $150,000!

"It' all a little crazy," said Victor."I saw a television ad for the site and liked the fact that there aren't professional players there, so I signed up. I played a few hands, then folded pre-flop on one. I watched a couple of guys run the pot up to US$200. I was thinking flush versus straight-flush, but two straight-flushes in one hand? Crazy! And then I realized I'd won US$18,000 without even playing. It was totally insane."

The Swedish player has said that he will spend his winnings on a trip to Amsterdam with his twin brother and friends and buy himself a Breitling watch.

The player had downloaded cool hand poker just 24hours prior to the win and had played for less than 17 hours, which means his prize averages to $1,000 per hour of play!

Despite the huge win, the Bad Beat Jackpot is fast approaching $100,000 at the site. Cool hand poker provides an enjoyable environment for new players to learn all about the game. The site discourages professionals (known as sharks) to provide a safe environment for new players.

Cool hand poker offers a fantastic online poker school to help develop strategies and techniques so that they can have big wins like Victor too! Check out Cool Hand Pokers site review for more information!
