Here is an interesting piece of online poker information that many of you out there might not know about.
Actionjeff has many tournament wins under his belt, but he has never won the Pokerstars Sunday Million. At least under his own name. No, this is no JJProdigy situation. Actionjeff didn't play under multiple accounts. Here is what happened:
The date was December 31st, 2006. On this day, Pokerstars was holding their Sunday Millions tournament, this time with a buy-in of $1000. There were 1083 entrants, including "dim--tix."
"dim--tix" is doing fairly well. He has a respectable stack, and there are currently 30 people left in the tournament, including "gobboboy." Actionjeff is watching this tournament go on, and makes "dim--tix" a proposal. Let me take over your account and I'll play this out. After a bit of haggling, they agreed that "Actionjeff" would pay "dim--tix" 33k to take his account over. Meaning, if Actionjeff won the tournament, he would keep all of the winnings, minus the 33k. If he went out in 30th, he would take a 29k bath. The two players agreed to the transaction, and Jeff "Actionjeff" Garza took over.
A few hours later, "dim--tix", being played by Actionjeff, took down the tournament. From what I understand, there were no chops involved, so Actionjeff took down the entire first place prize of $232k, netting himself a profit of almost $200k in just a couple of hours of work. A great deal for him. Also a good deal for "dim--tix", who guaranteed himself 7th place prize money with 30 people left.
This story has been verified by many players who attended the PCA in January. Not a bad score for Actionjeff.
