During the month of September, PocketFivers continued to grind and thrive in the midst of the 888poker Millions Superstorm. With the bulk of the $8 million in total guaranteed prize pools up for grabs last month, players at every level were able to find no shortage of value and bankroll boosting opportunities.
One of the biggest beneficiaries of all the action on 888poker was Ukraine’s ‘yarik1903’ who grabbed the top spot on the Top Earners list for the month of September. The former top-100 ranked player put in the bulk of his volume in the last week of the month and scored big with a victory in the September 27 edition of the $100,000 GTD 888Millions Sunday Special for $19,350. Add to that a runner-up finish in the $33 888Millions Sunday Big Fish for $2,821 and that amounts to the lion’s share of his $23,397 total monthly earnings.
Although ‘yarik1903’ grinds less volume now than when he did when he was ranked #26 in the world back in 2014, his monthly haul was enough to help him leap to over $2.6 million in career online earnings.
Cambodia’s ‘Kortex_67’ finished in second place on the 888poker Top Earners list playing under his 888 screen name ‘Creative.’. The online grinder amassed a monthly total of $22,109 to help him climb to become the top player in his country and hit a career-high ranking of #392 in the world.
‘Kortex_67’ took down the September 13 edition of the $100,000 GTD 888Millions Sunday Mega Deep for $18,890 and followed that up with a runner-up finish in the September 27 running of the 888Millions Sunday Challenge PKO for another $2,567. If he continues to put in the same amount of volume, there a good chance he’ll be able to hit the $51,000 he needs to eclipse the $500,000 lifetime total mark by the end of the year.
The top 3 Top Earners is rounded out by former worldwide #1-ranked Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez who took home $19,375 from 888poker in September. The top-tier pro from Uruguay simply hasn’t been playing very much online poker over the past year, having already made more than $7.7 million in his esteemed career. But last month he decided to take a couple of shots during the Superstorm and walked away with a victory in the September 13 edition of the $100,000 GTD 888Millions Sunday Special for $19,350, which was essentially the totality of his earnings for the month.

For the third month in a row, the Netherlands ‘HeateN’ topped the Most Cashes list for the month of September. His 70 total cashes is a bit of a drop from his volume and results in recent months, but it was still enough to get the job done to be #1. The small-stakes grinder grabbed two gold medals and took home a total of $4,608.
‘HeateN’ held off another well-known name on the Most Cashes list as Russia’s ‘Neverhood007’ racked up 61 cashes and three wins for a total of $1,899 to grab the number two spot. Brazil’s Daniel ‘dandeprimo’ Pedro de Primo Santos tied with ‘Neverhood007’ with 61 cashes, but was just slightly outearned taking home $1,783.28 in the month.
