Leeds’ Marcin “MARCIN123” Milde is in the form of his life after securing his second Triple Crown in the past two weeks — his fourth overall.
The Triple Crown is awarded by PocketFives.com for any player who wins a multi-table tournament on three different online poker sites within a seven-day period. In today’s climate, winning a single tournament is difficult enough, never mind taking down three and doing it on concurrent weeks.
On December 30, Milde won the €100 buy-in Big Night In on the Microgaming Network (awarded $4,770.87) and the €8,000 Guaranteed Rebuy on the iPoker Network ($2,486.91) to end 2013 on a high note.
Milde started 2014 in the same rich vein of form, reaching three final tables in the first two days before binking the $33 NL Hold’em 1R1A at PokerStars ($2,928.30). This was Milde’s third win within a week and secured him his third Triple Crown, which in itself is a fantastic achievement.
One day after claiming his third Triple Crown, Milde won The Big €20 Special Sunday Million at PokerStars.fr ($5,172). Then when he took down the Bigger $162 on Sunday for a massive $42,000.65 pay day and the chance of a second Triple Crown in as many weeks.
That second Triple Crown was won on Monday night when Mile, playing as “Lippyt0wn123,” scooped the €15,000 Guaranteed Rebuy on the iPoker Network for $4,757.07.
Shortly after his latest victory, Milde wrote the simple but straight to the point Facebook status: “boom 4th triple crown on pocket fives.... #heattttttttttttttttttttttt.”
Milde is currently ranked 16th in the United Kingdom and 277th in the world for online poker tournament play. Once this latest win is added to his already impressive points total, he should climb even higher and may even surpass his career high ranking of 208th worldwide that he achieved in 2012.
Congratulations to Milde on his remarkable run of form. Long may it continue!
