This is a discussion on Your biggest win? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; What's the most Youve ever won from a single poker tournament and what was the buy in?
Also. Did u get really lucky at least once
Yes, I was really lucky in tournaments when I won $ 360 and $ 100 and $ 150, although it's not a lot of money, but it was nice for me to receive prizes, sometimes you can win great money, but this requires the card to play very well in the game and you had experience in the game so you could win!
24k played in with a 20 dollar satellite to Sunday tourney with a buy in of 215. Took second place. One hand for about 1/3 of my stack AQ against AK I hit a straight on the river. Otherwise I was running hot. Lost last 2 hands with AK vs JJ.
Live - $2,550 buy in - took 7th for $18,759 I won my seat to the tourney. (I qualified in a MTT $70 satellite to a second step satellite which I won the seat.) Online, I won a $10 for $2,000 back in the day.
One of my memorable wins was at Poker Stars where I won my way up from $11 to a buy in of around $2.5k. There were some very skillful players I had to play against and I was able to learn as I went along. One fellow I remember said in matter-of-fact way that I was lucky to be at the table I was but that I earned my spot there. Needless to say I crashed in the tournament.

My best result is $ 11,553 in the tournament for USD 215 Sanday Million with a guarantee of $ 10 million. I took my place in the top 60, if I'm not mistaken. I will not say that luck played a big role during the tournament, because deep stacks allowed to play postflop, which gave me the opportunity to reduce the influence of the luck factor. I would say that the luck factor played the opposite joke with me, because if my AQ won JJ's opponent, I would have left the tournament with at least 20,000 dollars.
