Pokerstars Gives 2nd Porsche to DDBeast
Pokerstars player DDBeast is probably a very happy man today after trading in his Pokerstars players points for a brand new Porsche! He saved up 3,000,000 player points and decided to trade them in for this nice shiny Porsche:
DDBeast started playing poker when he was 18 years old. Now 21, and a graduate of economics, DDBeast plays poker full-time online. What is full time? For DDBeast, it’s 8-12 tables of SNGs with the occasional multi-table tournament thrown in for good measure. It took him just about one year to pick up enough FPPs to get a new ride. He puts it mildly when he says, “The Porsche is quite a nice upgrade from my ‘93 Miata. I’m loving it!”
DDBeast is not the first player to trade in his player points for a new Porsche. At the beginning of the month BMC11 also traded in 3,000,000 FPP points for this new Porsche Cayenne:
I will have one too one day, I just have about 2,999,321 points to go.
