Earlier this month, PartyPoker Ambassador Patrick Leonard said that September is the “best time of the year” for online poker grinders like him.

He’s already grabbed a title during this year’s MILLIONS Online, winning the $1,050 buy-in The Grand for $29,731, and narrowly missed out on another this weekend.

He finished sixth in the $1,050 6-Max PKO Championship for just over $13,500. But he wasn’t done there. He was also one of 24 players who advanced to Day 2 of the PartyPoker MILLIONS Online Main Event.
