What up Gripsed Nation!
This weekend was one of the biggest ever, maybe the biggest! The largest news coming from the OG Team Gripsed Pro - Charlie Carrel.
In case you somehow missed this...
The Beast, The Dream, The Epiphany won the EPT11 Grand Final €25k High Roller for a little more than €1.1M (or $1.3M USD).... Outright, no deal, no chop - all Charlie.
21 year old Charlie Carrel started with a $15 deposit on PokerStars only 2 years ago. But don't mistake Charlie as just a "lucky" kid. Charlie put in the effort, he put in work to get where he is today. Charlie has put in something like 7000 hours in a 2 year span to work his way up to 25/50NL and high roller live events.
He's not the anomaly, he's the DREAM - something you can achieve with the right amount of dedication to your goals.
But we can't let Charlie have all the fun :)
In the midst of my WSOP prep, old Gripsed had a bit of stackin too
Second in the Bodog/Bovada Sunday Major for $18k! In case any of you were getting worried about your 1% action in this year's WSOP Main Event - he's a little reassurance. I'm going for 4 in a row this year in the Main Event and have all the confidence and support I need to get there.
How did your weekend go?
Don't forget to share your success with the team! The easiest way is to tweet me @gripsedpoker so I can share it with the Gripsed Nation!
Like Team Gripster 'VaterZ' who shared some of his results over the past few days. Started with his last $20 and grinded it up to $390. Most importantly, he set himself a goal.
NEW MTT REVIEW: $40K SCOOP VICTORY
Just in time for SCOOP, Gripsed has a new MTT review for the team. In this review, I'm looking at Team Gripsed member "The Ossai" and his win from a $7 turbo, rebuy SCOOP event last year. If you're playing any SCOOP events (which obviously you should be), then you need to watch this short 90 minute review for FREE!
FREE MONEY FRIDAY ACTION
You guys do know that even though there is no stream, Free Money Friday and the 1% Club events are still going, right? You can still play the events that have added prizes and put you automatically into the contest for 1% of my WSOP Main Event action.
There's 3 weeks left, with 2 events in each division. So you have exactly 6 events left for each (and it's your top 6 finishes that score). So it's not too late for the 1% Club!
Even if you don't have faith, the games are still super value. Look at the Saturday Special - this is a $5 game with $500 added (including a $215 ticket to the Carbon Sunday Major). One player has cashed over a $1000 with a little over $40 in buyins.
WANT TO SCORE A FREE GRINDER BUNDLE?
Receive a free strategy book and software bundle ($53 or $38 value) when you signup & deposit to our most recommended poker room for European & Canadian players (888poker) or American players (Americas Cardroom).
Plus the regular room bonuses, it's an awesome deal. These are the best 2 sites you should be playing on (besides PokerStars obviously).
But that's all! More news on the secret Gripsed project soon! Get your #WSOP hype ready!
