Ramon Colillas turned a dream into reality back in January. He won the PSPC and a first prize of €5.1 million.

It’s not easy to have that level of success. But it can be done. You might even have the same talents and attributes required to do the same.

If you want Ramon levels of success you’ll need to possess, the same qualities that earned him that famous victory.

Which is why we created a special Dare to Dream quiz. It will help determine how far along you are in that process.

So in the spirit of popular teenaged magazines from the 1990s, you’ll find ten questions that will help you find out below.

Select the answer you think is correct for each question. Your score will determine just how “Ramon” you are.

Unscientific perhaps, but you’ll notice that the qualities Ramon used are the type anyone will need to succeed.

So. How Ramon are you?

 0 correct: We’re assuming you found this page by mistake.

1-3 correct: Well, you’ve made a start. And not everyone needs a big win to enjoy poker. And think of it this way. If you got the “favourite colour” question wrong, you’re practically in the next category already…

4-7 correct: Much better. You might still have a little work to do to get to Ramon’s level, but you’re in the right place. With a little effort (and maybe less Netflix) you could be up there with Ramon in no time.

8-10 correct: Congratulations! You’re practically related to Ramon. You’re showing signs of having the same dedication, commitment, and determination it took Ramon to win the PSPC. It won’t be too long before you step up.
