Congratulations to Esa Homayun, Winner of Mega Millions XXIV

By April 19, 2023No Comments

The last hand of the Mega Millions was straight out of the movies, as Esa Homayun flopped a straight to send Jason Wasser to the rail in second. Wasser was all in preflop with [Kc][4c], while Homayun had [Qs][9d].

A king popped in the window, but the whole flop was [Ks][Jd][10d]. Homayun and his rail immediately started to celebrate, even though Wasser was still live for running full house cards. However, the [3s] on the turn ended things.

Wasser, who started the day with just 5.8 million, less than five big blinds, spun that up to a score of  $174,360 per the four-handed deal, while Homayun, whose previous high tournament cash before this was $8,800, will take home $266,470, and will see his face on the next Mega Millions banner. Wasser made it through on the final session of the final day of qualifying and rolled that straight into a historic run.

Congratulations to Homayun, and thank you to everyone who played in this Mega Millions Event. Thank you also for a great series players, we will see you in June for the 2023 Summer Series!
