Retired officer walked away with a million dollar prize at PokerStars.net

A retired New York City policeman has walked away with a million dollars after participating in the PokerStars.net Million Dollar Challenge on television and beat top professional player Daniel Negreanu confronting each other.

Mike Kosowski commented that he started poker because he was bored after retiring in 2004 and used a combination of good cards and the skill to read people to win the top prize.

“It's incredible,' Kosowski commented in the New York Post newspaper.

'We're still on an emotional high every day. Every day I wonder ‘Am I living a dream’.'

The retired policeman was one of the first officers on the scene after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center 8 years ago and was assisting to move survivors out when the South Tower fell down.

The Staten Island man commented that his wife, Francis, had pushed him to practice poker as a way to kill his time and was happy for him to enter a 16,000-person online competition on PokerStars.net in which he came to 4th spot.
