The action over at 888poker was non-stop this November. Plenty of PocketFivers logged on and jumped into tournaments resulting in spectacular scores.
The UK’s Dean ‘mugggggy’ Quinn shot to the top of the November earners list. After taking the entire month of October off, Quinn hit the online tables hard. He put in max volume, posting well more than 100 results, 57 of which were on 888poker. In total, Quinn made $27,319 on the site. Seven of his cashes were for four-figures with his spotlight score being his victory in the November 12 edition of the $12,000 Mega Deep for $3,225.
Six of his finished were outright victories on 888poker, putting him in a tie for 2nd for the most amount of victories.
Quinn, a former top-50 ranked grinder, currently sits as the #189 ranked player in the world and is only $3,000 shy of topping $1.4 million in lifetime career earnings.
Lithuania’s ‘Neeriukaas’ also had a massive month of November picking up $23,833 in total cashes to rank #2 on the winner list. In fact, he scored a career-high cash by finishing as the runner-up in the November 25 edition of the $100,000 Sunday Sale Mega Deep for $18,889.
In addition to that huge payday, ‘Neeriukaas’ also managed to finish in first in four other 888poker tournaments in the month. The result helped him leap past $400,000 in lifetime earnings. He currently sits outside the top 1000, but if he continues to post results as he did in November, he won’t be on the outside for long.
The #3 player on the winner’s list is also one of the most well know players in online poker. ‘tutten7’ (aka ‘lena900’) is the #1-ranked player in the world. ‘tutten7’ held that ranking for over half of 2018 and he’s the favorite to win the PocketFives Yearly PLB award.
In November, he earned $23,198 on 888poker which he added to his over $13 million in career earnings. ‘tutten7’ did it as one might expect. He took down the November 4 edition of the $100,000 Mega Deep for $20,867.
With the exception of Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman, ’tutten7’ has earned the most money in online poker tournaments in history.
Alex ‘Dynoalot’ Difelice checks in at #4 on the PocketFives 888poker winners list in November putting together $20,197 in earnings. Once again, it was a superior performance in the $100,000 Mega Deep that propelled Defelice’s earnings. He took first place in the November 11 edition of the tournament which was good for $19,943.
Difelice didn’t put in a ton of November volume but his Mega Deep victory was his largest of the month across all sites. It helped put the Canadian to the #72 rank in the world, #2 overall in the poker-rich city of Toronto. To date, Defelice has earned more than $4.6 million in career earnings.
Rounding out the top 5 is Niklas ‘H8ersGnah8’ Vijamaa. Nothing to hate about Vijamaa’s month as he pulled down $19,688. He’s a regular 888poker grinder, putting in a lot of volume on the site so it must have a been special for him when he took third place in the November 25 edition of the $50,000 Whale for $8,450. The score was a career-high cash for the grinder from Finland, helping him climb to over $350,000 in career earnings.
In total, Vijamaa managed 50 total results on 888poker in the month.
He is coming off a career-high ranking as well. He touched #531 in the world just a few weeks ago, settling now into #579.
