An Estonian poker player hiding behind alias "barrakuuda4" won exactly one million dollars (905,000 euros) at PokerStar's Spin & Go online tournament on Monday. This is the country's new record by far.

The yet unnamed Estonian took up PokerStars special anniversary offer to increase his 100 dollar buy-in ten thousand fold. He managed to defeat Hungary's "minargyuri" and the Czech Republic's "KvicKiller", both of whom got 100,000 dollar (90,000 euros) consolation prizes.

In the heads-up battle, "barrakuuda4" pushed all-in with pocket fours and minargyuri called with a ten and an ace.

"Barrakuuda4" is the fourth Spin & Go millionaire in six days and eight of total.

The lucky player beat Estonia's former poker jackpot record by over half a million euros. The old record was held by Janno Jerlakas, who won 270,000 euros in March 2014.
