Asher Conniff, a 26-year-old Brooklyn native, recently won a massive sum of money playing in a poker tournament that he actually entered by accident. Conniff meant to sign up for a different tournament, but, by mistake, he registered for one that conflicted with a planned family vacation to Europe.  This is one mistake with an awesome twist.

When he found out he couldn’t get a refund on his buy-in, Conniff backed out of the family trip and went ahead with the tournament he hadn’t intended on entering. It turned out to be a very wise financial decision. After he won that tournament, he became eligible for the World Poker Tour World Championship, which he also won. Conniff walked away with a pot worth more than $973,000. The moral of the story is I need to learn how to play poker. Check out the video below:
