A PokerStars player xanja whom has never made a deposit at PokerStars yet he almost managed to win the Poker Stars million event with this week being the busiest it’s ever been thanks in part to the frenzy brought on by the PokerStars 2X promotion running throughout July where the million dollar event was actually a $2,83 million dollar record breaking tournament.
Xanja started his poker career two years ago playing in PokerStars freerolls, he somehow managed to build up his bankroll without ever needing to make a deposit, winning penny by penny from the freerolls until his bankroll could afford entry into sit n’ gos and MTT’s. Xanja won a satellite tournament to qualify into the Sunday Million main event, making his return on his initial investment even more amazing.
Xanja whom admittedly is regularly a $5 / $10 SNG player, ended up cutting a deal with three remaining players at the table and got a massive $235,000 as he had a commanding chip lead at the time yet Xanja did not manage to get the full glory of winning the event itself that was bestowed to TimDawg888 whom managed to hit a couple crucial hands at the right moment to take the event.
