With a nine-player deal in the Sunday Million final table ensuring all players at least $ 200,000 each, ‘zeurrr’ had dropping a gain “life-changing” as they say in English, enough to change your life in good French .
As is customary in such cases, local media have tried to find out who this little lucky that had just won a huge sum in a poker tournament online history. In this case is therefore a Dutch sports magazine, which has taken on the task.
‘Zeurrr’ outed by a tenacious journalist
A nice investigative work by the reporter helped uncover ‘zeurrr’ through its various ‘BRAGS’ posts on poker forums under the nickname ‘Jiminho3′ and ‘Greetz Jimmy’ which allowed him to identify the finalist Sunday Million under his real name Jimmy Jonker.
Contacting the player in question by telephone, the newspaper fell on his father Jos Jonker, 47, who then said that it was he himself who had played and won her place in the final Sunday Million.
Hocus-pocus on Twitter
Intrigued by this revelation and discourse differs from the version posted on the internet by his son, the journalist then sought to learn more. But Jos Jonker, as explained in the newspaper, did not want or rather did not know about his journey in the tournament, an additional detail rather surprising.
On behalf of the father ….
Victor Schildkamp had the good idea to take precautions by recording various screen shots on the posts of the son (or father, we do not know too much) before publishing its investigation.
Curiously, as noted MPCpoker the site, some of these posts have been changed after the telephone interview, including Twitter, on behalf of the son having been meanwhile been renamed after the father and cleared all the tweets.

Finally, a representative of PokerStars Holland confirmed in an interview for a Dutch television channel as a finalist in the Sunday Million would be minor. Simon Keijzer simply stated that the player is Jimmy Jonker, and although registered under age 19, he would have two fewer today.
Accordingly, ‘zeurrr’ will in all likelihood his private gain of more than half a million dollars, although it is unclear to whom the money will go, if it is indeed. Thank you who? Thank you daddy!
