The newest $10,300 Buy-In Super MILLION$ High Rollers GGPoker champion is Darren Elias. Now that is the way to start a new year, especially this year after such a miserable 2020.

Darren EliasElias started out this year by winning the much anticipated online poker tourney and taking home a very sweet $448,842.34 after going head to head with Niklas Astedt. Although he was way behind Astedt and you would expect that Astedt would walk away with it all, it just was not meant to be.

The final hand saw Astedt raised 700,000 and Elias jammed for 12,078,400 which Astedt snap called and turned over pocket Queens against Elias’s Ace-Seven. Cards were in Elias favor as the turn dropped an Ace giving him the pot and the championship. Way to start 2021, Darren!

So even though it’s been a difficult time for the last 12 months or so, this proves that you can still play and win a fortune playing poker online. So check out the Texas Poker Store to pick up all your poker supplies to practice with.

We‘re almost positive none of us could wait to say goodbye to 2020. It was a horrendous, miserable, life-changing (in a bad way) year. If you’re able to come back in 2021, start the year off with positivity. Forget whatever happened last year and bring your “A” game.

Prepare well, whether it’s for poker or life. Whatever you commit to, keep scrupulous track of what you make happen. Be honest about what you’ve achieved. Better yet, under promise and over achieve.

When it comes to building yourself as a poker player, don’t forget about all the burgeoning techniques and innovative ways for communicating we’ve all learned. Plunge into connecting with poker players from other countries, learn something about their cultures and along the way play some poker.

Don’t forget to get enthused about training. You know you could use more, and you can learn from online courses to master classes to poker strategy videos. Just don’t let up and you’ll never know when it’s exactly what you’ll need when life gets back to normal.

Above all, 2021 is still going to be a tough one for most people. We have the vaccine, which brings us all hope, but we have lost so much. Try to be the kind of person you would want around you, and try to treat others with kindness and a smile. Eventually you’ll feel better and notice that those around you are feeling better too; In the meantime play well, be authentic, and dream big.
