Patrick Leonard Enjoys Successful PartyPoker MILLIONS Online Weekend

Patrick Leonard

Earlier this month, PartyPoker Ambassador Patrick Leonard said that September is the "best time of the year" for online poker grinders like him.

He's already grabbed a title during this year's MILLIONS Online, winning the $1,050 buy-in The Grand for $29,731, and narrowly missed out on another this weekend.

He finished sixth in the $1,050 6-Max PKO Championship for just over $13,500. But he wasn't done there. He was also one of 24 players who advanced to Day 2 of the PartyPoker MILLIONS Online Main Event.

SPINS Your Way to a MILLIONS Online Seat

All the buy-ins for the prestigious PartyPoker MILLIONS Online start at $109 and increase to $3,200 but that does not mean you have to miss out on the chance to become a MILLIONS Online champion.

In addition to the traditional satellite format, players can jump into $30 buy-in SPINS MILLIONS Online edition. Most of the time these hyper-turbo sit & go tournaments pay $60 in cash, but they also award MILLIONS Online tickets worth from $109 to $3,200, and do so in a matter of a few minutes.
