While much of the poker spotlight may have been on the World Series of Poker in October, the online grind continues. With a combination of big-time results and plenty of volume, Rui ‘RuiNF’ Ferreira topped the Online Player of the Month leaderboard for October while also soaring past $22 million in career online earnings.
It was another mammoth month for Ferreira who racked up 166 in-time-money finished in October for a total of $354,889 in total earnings. His entire month was anchored by a big win in the October 18 edition of the GGPoker $1,050 Sunday High Rollers Main Event where he took home $103,801 and 729.38 leaderboard points. The very next day Ferreira, grabbed his second-biggest score in October by making a deep run in the GGPoker Super MILLION$ High Rollers where he picked up another $22,981 and 238.01 leaderboard points.
He had two other five-figure results last month including a win in Event #9 of the PokerStars Bounty Builder Series where he banked $18,173. Then, he closed out the month with a final table finish in the partypoker WPTDeepStacks Event #7 for another $15,371.
The story of the month for Ferreira was pure volume. One look at his results and one can’t help but be awed by how many results per day he achieved. He racked up as many as 14 cashes on October 24th with many other days pulling in 8-10. It has allowed him to stay the top 10 of the Online Poker Rankings and he currently sits ranked #2 in Portugal, only behind countryman Joao Vieira. He finished with nine qualifying scores for a total of 3,534 leaderboard points, a full 665 points above second place.
Falling in just one spot behind Ferreira in October is the current worldwide #8-ranked Enrico ‘whatisL0v3’ Camosci. Camosci has been soaring up the worldwide rankings and October was a snapshot as to why. He collected five-figure scores highlighted by his monthly high score of $22,720 for his podium finish in the GGPoker $2,625 High Rollers Blade Mulligan on October 4. But it was in the back half of the month that he really heated up. It started with a runner-up finish in the GGPoker $1,050 High Rollers Main Event for $18,229. Four days later he took down the Sunday High Roller on GGPoker for another $14,393 and then wrapped up a 10-day sprint with another big cash, hauling in $13,070 in the partypoker WPTDeepstacks Event #7 High Roller for $13,070.
During that time, Camosci earned his third career PocketFives Triple Crown on October 18 with victories on GGPoker, PokerStars, and Winamax.
Like Camosci, Brazil’s Rafael ‘pycadasgalax’ Furlanetto is also sitting at a career-high spot on the Online Poker Rankings thanks to a big October. Mainly a mid-stakes grinder, Furlanetto – like Ferreira – put in a huge amount of volume in the month.
His first five-figure score of the month took place in the October 5 edition of the Natural8 $250 Daily Main Event where he walked away with the victory and $14,204 plus 273,82 leaderboard points. Less than a week later he was in the winner’s circle once again taking down the Natural8 $525 Sunday High Rollers for another $24,646. He picked up his third big cash on October 24 where his runner-up finish in the $300 Sunday Marathon brought him $18,591. In total, he had 184 in-the-money finishes for what turned out to be an incredibly busy month for Brazil’s #13-ranked grinder.
