MILESTONES: ‘hellohellohello’ Says Hello to $5M in Earnings


Every week The PocketFives Milestone Report looks at the online poker players who are achieving career-best achievement or reaching new heights in the rankings

Russia’s ‘hellohellohello’ Passes $5,000,000 Mark

When Russia’s ‘hellohellohello‘ finished runner-up in the partypoker $2,600 Super High Roller on October 8, he probably felt a bit of disappointment that he didn’t finish on top. He can, however, take some comfort in knowing that the $38,232.36 he earned for that performance was enough to make him the 88th player in history to hit $5,000,000 in lifetime online earnings.

He joins ‘veeea‘, ‘MAMOHT_T‘, Maxim ‘decay’ Lykov and ‘NoPlanB‘ as the fifth Russian to hit that milestone. As a testament to the volume he plays, ‘hellohellohello’ has only ever had one six-figure cash – a $104,100 payday for a ninth place finish in the 2015 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker Main Event.

Canada’s ‘ZLucky93‘ joined the $2 million earnings club while three more players; ‘shrekpoker91‘, ‘the_real_lissi stinkt‘, and ‘Duraircwb‘, passed $1 million in lifetime earnings. There are now 1,723 PocketFives members with at least $1 million in earnings.

Before you get to be the #1-ranked online poker player in the world, you’ve got to first be in the top 100. Three players took a step toward the top spot this week, cracking the top 100 for the first time in their careers.
