Padraig O’Neill wins Unibet Poker Online Series High event

It is not uncommon for an online poker player to earn a seat into a big online event via a satellite or qualifier. Online poker sites offer these lower buy-in events to drum up interest in major tournaments and provide players with seats at a much lower price.

But that is exactly what happened to Padraig “John_smith2” O’Neill during the Unibet Poker Online Series.

O’Neill took part in the Unibet Open Online High event, a tournament with a €1,100 buy-in. He won his spot in a €50 qualifier and managed to finish in first, earning €79,998 for the win!
