Russian grinder “Jouissance88” is on cloud nine right now having finished top of Leaderboard 2 in our ongoing Legends of the Week promotion. Triumphing over all the other partypoker players resulted in more than $500 worth of tournament tickets hitting the account of Jouissance88. Understandably, he is delighted with the promotion.
Jouissance88 hails from Moscow and only took up playing online poker eight months ago.
“I live in Moscow, and before poker I was fond of philosophical and fiction literature. I was attracted to online poker by the idea of freedom and financial independence. In November, I made my first deposit at partypoker and I now play almost every day.”
The Russian star in the making made it his mission to finish top of a Legend of the Week leaderboard when he first discovered the promotion. He set his sights high and achieved his goal.
The week Jouissance88 won Leaderboard 2 saw him walk away with approximately $1,000 in prize money, which is a fantastic achievement in its own right. However, his impressive results resulted in some high-stakes tournament tickets hitting his partypoker account, making the week even more memorable.
“The week was just great, despite the fact I felt seriously tired from playing from morning through to the evening. I made my best cash and made about $1,000 from low-stakes games. I’ve played a lot of poker since the start of July because of a Russia-specific promotion with Gipsity.”
“I managed to win the Headhunter but needed to re-enter to do so. Thankfully, I won an additional Headhunter ticket from the beautiful overlaying satellites!”
Jouissance88 is usually found frequenting lower-stakes games, but one of the tickets he won is worth a cool $320. Instead of jumping into the next available $320, the leaderboard winner is doing some research.
“When it comes to tournaments costing $320, your attitude should be as responsible and serious as possible. I’m busy researching the structures of potential tournaments that I can now buy into. The difference between a $5.50 and $320 tournament is colossal.”
Understandably, Jouissance88 is a big fan of the Legend of the Week promotion, going as far as to state he believes the promotion is the best anywhere online for tournament grinders.
“Obviously, partypoker offers the absolute best MTT leaderboards or any room. It is these promotions that allow you to win players over from PokerStars.”
Kind words, indeed. Look out for Jouissance88 when you next hit up some low-stakes tournaments because he will likely be playing.
