Ricky "TonnaMunz" Glaser wins Team Online Film Festival, PCA package
Ricky Glaser just won a package to the 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and it might not have happened if not for one moment not long ago when things went terribly wrong for him.
See, Glaser (who you might know as TonnaMunz) is a Guinness record holding skateboarder from Melbourne, Australia. There aren't many things he can't do on a skateboard, including...well, this.
What you see right there is the very second Glaser's life was about to change in a way he never expected.
I won't spoil the whole story, because Glaser tells it very well himself in his winning entry to the PokerStars Team Online Film Festival. His effort earned him a trip to the PCA in January.
"How hard you work is directly correlated to how successful you will be," Glaser's says in his short film. You can watch it here.
While Glaser won the grand prize, it was a very close battle between him and "Betting Life," a Supernova Elite who produced the video below. He and four other honorable mentions won $500 apiece.
Congratulations to all the winners. And Ricky, we'll see you in the Bahamas.
