A Brooklyn man won nearly $US1 million in a poker tournament he entered by mistake.
Asher Conniff hauled in $US973,000 after winning the World Poker Tour World Championship at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey in April. The win came only one week after he won more than $US200,000 in a separate tournament.
The 25-year-old qualified for the April 29 tournament by clicking on the wrong tournament on the Borgata’s website, he told the New York Daily News.
He then first had to win a 2,400-person satellite (qualifying) tournament to even be eligible for the championship, which had a $US15,000 buy-in.
