Online poker certainly does have its benefits and Jon Spinks has taken every advantage. Spinks is able to play poker from the comfort of his home and has been able to make a good living from it. He has made more than $3 million from online poker. Spinks plays under the name EMSBas. He reached the milestone at the partypoker Powerfest Event. Even though he only won $845, it was enough for him to surpass the $3 million mark.
Prior to the $845 win, Spinks was close to breaking the $3 million barrier by winning $25000 at a tournament last month. The British player currently sits at number 55 on the United Kingdom’s list of winning players. Spinks is more involved in mid-stakes games, as a result, he makes only a few hundred dollars. Sometimes Spinks is fortunate to have won larger sums. Hendon Mob has Spinks on the list as garnering more than $1 million in takings from participating in tournaments. Included in the $1 million winnings is the $275000 that Spinks won at the partypoker MILLIONS tournament last year April.
