The game of poker is not limited to the young only and this is proved from the fact that Eugene Condon Jr. from Massachusetts won the No-Skrill Poker Tournament worth $10 Million at the age of 51 years. Though there are many young players who are calculative and play their moves with the greatest of precaution in order to win, the experienced of the lot ensure that they use their years of experience in predicting the moves of the opponents and getting success in the way. Thought this is not an easy task and is not taught in any rule book, it is the forte of the players who have spent years in the circuit.
This tournament was an electronic one and therefore no live dealers in it. As the prize was a large one, there were many stalkers and the payout was very attractive. From the 560 players, the final 12 were the most renowned ones of the lot and Eugene Condon Jr. was not much taken notice of. This gave him an opportunity to observe his opponents and make sure that he had an upper hand in the entire process. This was a different format of the game and so the players did not actually have to bet or do any sort of action on the scene.
But the entire process was so interesting that it many people took interest in watching the game and wondering who the winner would be. This attracted more attention as people from all over the place took in the board and would bet on the winner. The new format was the main attraction, but soon wilted as the 51 year old Eugene Condon Jr. found place in the final three. All attentions shifted to him and suddenly he was in the spotlight. And when he won the game, well history was created.
