You want to hone your poker skills. PokerStars School wants to help you. Here’s a look at what’s in store for you at PS School this week.

Winners Wall: Turning 75 cents into $32,000

Four Spin & Go’s and one Sunday Million later, Smart747 had $32,000 in his account

It’s a situation almost everyone has been in before. PokerStars School member “Smart747” was down to the last 75 cents in his PokerStars account, so he decided to try to spin it up to something more substantial.

“I fired up 3 Spin & Go’s and to my surprise, and amusement, I won all 3 of them,” he told PokerStars School in this week’s Winners Wall piece. “I then had a total of $3.50. There was a special Spin promo running at the time where you could win a ticket to the Sunday Million, I played, and you guessed it, I won the ticket…”

If things ended there we’d be in “cool story, bro” territory. But as it turns out, Smart747 went on to finish in fifth place for $32,000 in that Sunday Million. Read Part 1 and Part 2 of this week’s Winners Wall interview for the full story straight from Smart747, complete with hand analysis from another famous satellite winner: Chris Moneymaker.
