PokerStars makes another millionaire out of nick2101983
"Three-way all-in? For real? Oh my God."
Imagine Felix Schneiders, a man who has seen just about everything, pulling his hands up to his head in sheer disbelief as three-way all-in turned into a millionaire-dollar heads-up final. That's what happened right here.
"That's it," Schneiders explained. "No bubble. No sweat! So sick!"
That left the heads up match, one that would turn one man into a millionaire.
It wasn't long after that when this happened.
Cuonglc was on the ropes when he and nick2101983 got their chips into the middle...
The flop came 9♥2♥3♥ which gave nick2101983 flush outs. But the 8♦ on the turn put cuonglc ahead. And then the A♠ landed on the river, making nick2101983 the winner and $1 million richer.

Get this...that contest only paid out two places. Second place got $30,000. First place took $1 million.
And now you understand why Team Online's Felix Scheniders was so beside himself.
