German Player Takes Title in GGPoker Flip & Go Millionaire for Massive Return on 11 Bucks

November brought a unique tournament for players at GGPoker. The Flip & Go Millionaire offered players a chance to turn 11 bucks into a huge payday. After 10 days of Flip stages, a winner was crowned in the Go Stage on Friday – with a nice five-figure prize going to the winner.

German online poker player “ifhedieshedies” flipped to the title and a nice score of $54,929. This was quite a score considering the buy-in.

There’s no word on how many Flip stages the winner took part in. But the payout amounts to more than 4,993 times that initial price point.

Inside the Flip & Go Millionaire numbers

Over the last couple years, GG has been aggressive when it comes to major event guarantees. The site has shown a willingness to get all levels of players involved for major guaranteed tournaments. That was again the case with the Flip & Go Millionaire.

Reaching $1 million wouldn’t be easy with such a small buy-in. On Thursday morning, the site reached about 71,000 and needed to check in at 100,000 to meet the guarantee.

With Flip stages running every 20 minutes, GG just made that total. The tournament saw just over 100,000 entries to meet the guarantee. The tournament also saw 20,000 unique entries.

That meant a total of 4,263 players in the money with a minimum cash paying out $72. “dalo0013” finished runner-up for $51,828. The top three finishers all cashed in for more than $50,000. Here’s a look at the final table winners.

Popular event among GGPoker players

The Millionaire offered a nice way to reach players of all levels with a shot at a major score. Flip & Go events have become popular with players in recent years and the format has even expanded to a live event each summer at the World Series of Poker.

Players start with three cards and then see a flop. Each player then discards one card and all players then see the turn and river cards. The player with the best hand moves on to the Go stage, which plays out as a traditional No Limit Hold’em tournament.

Several players took to Twitter to share their own success at reaching the Go Stage and bagging some winnings.

Canadian poker player Collin Capone was one of those jumping in the Millionaire action. He made a nice run, finishing 474th for $290.
