PokerStars MicroMillions crowns second-time Christmas winner

Thousands of players have been claiming early Christmas presents in the PokerStars Christmas Calendar, but for Stian 'SlemPastor' Hansen, the festive season is definitely one to remember. He celebrated the anniversary of his first big poker win of $40,000 by scooping $70,310.99 and the $22 MicroMillions Marathon Main Event title, all part of the online Christmas Festival promotion, organized by PokerStars, an Amaya brand.

The 22-year-old from Oslo, Norway, said, "My biggest win was the Supersonic last Christmas for $40,000 on PokerStars, so this was sort of my anniversary." To celebrate, he plans to travel and bring his poker skills to some live poker events in 2017.

For more than ten hours, Hansen, battling as 'SlemPastor', his PokerStars alias, beat fatigue to top the 42,036-strong field to win the Main Event, devouring a smorgasboard of players along the way such as runner-up 'Fofan10' from Russia and Estonian 'markzil' in third.
