Just seems a bit weird to me when the likes of SharkScope and PokerProLabs are readily available and don't miss any cashes and have them added, usually, within 24hrs. Again, not crying about missing scores but just wondering why even some guys huge scores are only added long after the fact, sometimes even 3+ months.

    The last documented win for “Nemekiss” came on May 31 of last year when took down the $3,000 SHOT for $1,927.
    UK’s “Roulette69” Conquers Sunday Challenge

    The $109 buy-in, $50,000 Sunday Challenge drew 433 players who accounted for 148 rebuys, which created a $58,100 prize pool. That was dispersed to the top 56 players including “lapechuga4” (25th - $389.27), Guntis “luffEEE” Aleskins (13th - $749.49), Jonathan “chut_up” Van Fleet (6th - $2,033.50), “JungleJedi” (4th - $4,357.50), and “OPH1UCHUS” (3rd - $6,100.50).

    “MOI_est_JEAN” Compliments February Whale Win with Lightning Title

    The $109 buy-in, $20,000 GTD Sunday Lightning attracted 131 players who generated 60 rebuys. That created a $19,100 prize pool distributed to the top 18 players including Johannes “TrollKonst8” Korsar (16th - $248.30), “Zoronoa93” (8th - $620.75), “placebo36251” (4th - $1,623.50), and “BLaaZeKush” (3rd - $2,483).

    Familiar Faces at Baby Whale Final Table; Niklas “tutten7” Astedt Comes Out on Top

    There were two familiar faces at the final table of this week’s $320 buy-in, $80,000 Baby Whale, which drew 204 players who accounted for 91 rebuys and created an $88,500 prize pool. Sunday Challenge champ “Roulette69” and Lightning winner “MOI_est_JEAN” finished in eighth and seventh place respectively.

    After 8 hours and 41 minutes, it was Sweden’s Niklas “tutten7” Astedt who came out on top after defeating Germany’s “durrrrchfall” to win $19,027.50. The win comes a little more than three weeks after he won the $12,000 Crocodile for $4,162.

    In the live realm, Astedt has $940,195 in tournament earnings including $380,245 for finishing fourth in the EPT12 Barcelona High Roller.

    Sweden’s “OvePipcorn” Wins the Sunday Breeze

    The $55 buy-in, $15,000 Sunday Breeze drew 349 players, and that created a prize pool of $17,450. Among the 45 players to earn a piece of it were “t8ofdiamonds” (39th - $104.70), last week’s winner “Ezreaal” (26th - $130.87), “mr.salgado”(15th - $218.12), “Mibo1984” (6th - $767.80), and “Plotsch2” (4th - $1,439.62).

    After “Dablinov” fell in third place for $1,919.50, “flowroll” and “OvePipcorn” squared off for the title. The latter ended up claiming the title for Sweden, which came with a $3,376 prize. It marked the fourth four-figure cash for “OvePipcorn” since July, with two of those being runner-up finishes in the $6,000 Sunday Early Monsoon and $5,000 Thunder 6-Max.

    What to watch out for:


    We’re guaranteeing $8 million in prizes for the upcoming XL Eclipse online tournament series, which will run September 10-24. That’s $500,000 more in GTD prize money than was offered in the spring’s XL Inferno.

    Former Baby Whale Champ “MisterN411” Captures Lightning Title

    The $109 buy-in, $20,000 GTD Sunday Lightning attracted 187 players who generated 101 rebuys.

    Heater Continues for Sweden’s “CptJack222” With Breeze Win

    The $55 buy-in, $20,000 Sunday Breeze drew 486 players, and that created a prize pool of $24,300.

    After 8 hours and 39 minutes, the title came down to Sweden’s “CptJack222” and Russia’s “Iwentworthl.” The Swede prevailed to capture the $4,617 first-place prize, while “Iwentworthl” had to settle for a $3,402 consolation prize.

    Last week, “CptJack222” placed fifth in the $80,000 Mega Deep for $4,000, and a week before that third in the $10,000 Monsoon for $1,265.

    Two 888 Ambassadors Cash Crocodile, “popsnpoker” Claims Title

    “popsnpoker,” who finished fifth in the Lightning recapped above, redeemed himself by topping a field of 216 players to win this week’s $160 buy-in Sunday Crocodile, which surpassed its $30K GTD by creating a prize pool of $32,400.

    For his win, “popsnpoker” added $6,966 to his bankroll, while runner-up “Viachello” earned $5,022. Others to finish in the top 27 and cash were Anton “anteen” Bertilsson (19th - $324), 888poker Ambassadors Dominik “888Dominik” Nitsche (17th - $405) and Parker “tonkaaaaaa” Talbot (11th - $567), and “.Rookie.” (4th - $2,835).

    Day 11 of the online series saw “bzfrke” wins his second title in three days, while “slkshoota” turned $30 into $2,403.
    Day 11 of the XL Eclipse hosted 13 more events, which means 143 tournaments from the 197-
    event schedule are now complete. It also means 139 have secured seats in the series-ending
    Champion of Champions Event (there have now been four two-time champs thus far).
    That tournament will take place on September 26 at 18:00 GMT and see the winner awarded a
    $13,000 package to the 2017 World Series of Poker Europe at King’s Rozvadov.
    “bzfrke” Wins Second Title in Three Days
    On Wednesday, Croatia’s “bzfrke” became the fourth player to win two XL Eclipse titles. On
    Monday, he topped a field of 200 entries to win Event #110: $20,000 Crocodile for $6,450. He
    followed that up by besting a field of 482 entries in 8 hours and 57 minutes to win Event #136:
    $20,000 Monsoon for $4,579.
    The tournament surpassed its $20K GTD by creating a $24,100 prize pool. That was paid out to
    the top 63 spots and among those to cash were XL Inferno champ “Fukuruku” (61st for $106.04),
    “jmsantos10” (35th for $132.55), “sajtgul” (20th for $144.60), “Grindathon” (11th for $289.20),
    and Doug “PulledPorker” Lang (10th for $289.20).
    “Smithstudent” Takes Down Biggest Prize of the Day
    The headliner tournament of the day was Event #137: $50,000 8-Max, which drew 584 players
    and created a prize pool of $58,400 prize pool.
    After 11 hours and 7 minutes, Russia’s “Smithstudent” finished as the last player standing to
    win. $10,920.80. Back in May, “Smithstudent” took down the XL Inferno Event #68: $15,000
    Breeze for $2,902, meaning he’s not in the company of about a dozen players who’ve won both
    XL Inferno and Eclipse titles.
    Other 888poker success for “Smithstudent” include winning the $5,000 Typhoon for $1,851 back
    in December and taking down February’s $4,000 Twister for $1,483.
    “slkshoota” Turns $30 Into $2,403
    Event #141: $10,000 Turbo 8-Max attracted 460 players, which surpassed the advertised
    guarantee by creating a $12,650 prize pool. That was distributed to the top 64 finishes, which
    included “Berillus” (40th for $67.04), Ronan “888Ferrari” Andreu (29th for $82.22),
    “Millhouse44” (14th for $145.47), and “HappySh00ter” (10th for $188.48.
    After just 3 hours sand 30 minutes, the UK’s “slkshoota” came out on top to turn his $30 buy-in
    into a $2,403.50 payday. This is the first time we’ve heard from “slkshoota” since January 2016
    when he won two tournaments in back-to-back days. In the first, he topped a field of 835 players
    to win the $10,000 GTD Turbo R&A for $2,361, and the second he bested 368 players to win the
    $3,000 Turbo Catfish for $776
    Here’s What is Coming Up on Thursday
    Just four more days remain before the final day of the XL Eclipse, which will feature the $1,050
    buy-in, $1.5 million GTD Main Event.
    Before we get there, we have 13 events on tap for Thursday. At 17:00, three tournaments will get

    THIS WEEK: October 15, 2017


    “allesrigged” Claims Mega Deep Title

    The $215 buy-in, $100,000 Mega Deep is always one of Sunday’s premiere events, and this week was no exception as 528 players took to the felt and surpassed the guarantee by creating a $105,600 prize pool.

    Among those to earn a piece of it were Roman “Romeopro33” Romanovsky (33rd - $559.68), “ProfessorM93” (19th - $865.92), “DuduPa1986” (7th - $2,640), Troy “S.Janowski” Quenneville (5th - $5,280), and XL Eclipse Main Event and Champion of Champions winner “CllsDntMttr” (3rd - $10,771.20).

    James “M4zlTov” Gantz Wins Whale for $44K

    The biggest buy-in of the day was the $1,050 Whale, which surpassed its $150K GTD by drawing 114 players who rebought 62 times.

    “Pimmelspeck” Wins Sunday Lightning 6-Max

    The $109 buy-in, $20,000 Sunday Lightning 6-Max kicked off the day in style as 163 players rebought 84 times to create a $24,700 prize pool.

    After 8 hours and 5 minutes, Germany’s “Pimmelspeck” bested Sweden’s “Ipoo1” in heads-up play to win $5,928. If you recall, “Pimmelspeck” amassed five cashes during last month’s XL Eclipse, including seventh-place in Event #38: $50,000 Tuesday Challenge for $1,699.75. His last documented win came back on July 11, 2016 when he won the $15,000 Crocodile for $3,937.
    “GangstaGo” Earns $36.30 Per Minute in Turbo Mega Deep

    The $215 by-in, $40,000 Turbo Mega Deep saw 153 players rebuy 59 times, which created a prize pool of $42,400. The final table was filled with some familiar faces including Steven “Kale333” van Zadelhoff (9th - $954), “InJeBakkes” (8th - $1,166), XL Eclipse champ “germaxii” (4th - $3,604), and “kissktya23” (3d - $5,088).

    After just 254 minutes, Ukraine’s Cristian “GangstaGo” Sampaoli defeated Argentina’s “progree69,” both a XL Inferno and Eclipse champ, in heads-up play to walk away with a $9,222 top prize. On March 3, 2016, “GangstaGo” won the $7,000 Lightning 6-Max for $2,207.
    “LaToronja” Wins Swordfish to Go Along with Two Breeze Titles

    The $30 buy-in, $25,000 Sunday Deepstack Swordfish attracted 950 players, which surpassed the GTD by creating a $26,125 prize pool.

    “BillyBon8” Takes Down New GREAT 8 Title

    Our newest tournament, the $88 buy-in, $30,000 GTD Sunday GREAT 8, was played eight handed and started players with 8,888 in chips. The tournament drew 405 players who rebought 177 times, which created a $46,560 prize pool paid out to the top 56 players.

    Among those to cash were 888poker Ambassador Chris “888Moorman” Moorman (51st for $186.24), Ivan “ivanascasubi” Vilchez (28th for $311.95), “1LevelAbove” (12th for $758.92), and “rickpereira7” (6th for $1,629.60).

    After “vaitodo.pt” bowed out in third place for $4,888.80, Germany’s “SmilleThHero” and Russia’s “BillyBon8” squatted off in heads-up play.
    After 11 hours and 14 minutes, the Russian prevailed to take home $8,846.40.

    Last November, “BillyBon8” had a good month when he took down the $8,000 Lightning 6-Max for $2,400, and then two days later won the $15,000 Crocodile for $4,050.

    UK’s “Octopokes” Becomes Mega Deep Champ

    This week’s $215 buy-in Mega Deep drew 462 players, which meant a $100,000 prize pool was on tap for the top 64 finishers. They included Preban “prebzzz” Stokkan (49th for $380), “KURDEdersim” (24th for $870), “kaiser066” (11th for $1,490), “yourpappa” (7th for $2,500), and Kevin “morans350” Gibson (3rd for $10,260).

    Former WHALE Champ “JBA888” Claims Crocodile Title

  29. Hello everyone,

    For the most part, poker is a selfish endeavor. Players either win or lose on their own merit. It’s a lonely affair.
    Because of this, players tend to come face to face with an existential quandary – what do I have to offer the world?

    For many, the answer is philanthropy, and in the poker community, that oftentimes means donating to charity.
    https://www.888poker.com/magazine/po...ity-and-poker/
    Whether it’s pledging a portion of their winnings, supporting organizations through their play (i.e. Little One for One Drop), or participating in charity events, players have plenty of opportunities to make a difference.

    888poker and Chad Holloway go through major charity events within the poker world here.

    THIS WEEK: October 29, 2017


    “Chocolatey” Wins Mega Deep for $19,618

    Last week, Russia’s “BillyBon8” won both the Baby Whale and GREAT 8 in a single day. On Sunday, he nearly captured another prestigious title on 888poker when he finished seventh in the $215 buy-in Mega Deep for $2,595.

    That tournament drew 519 unique players, which surpassed the $100K GTD by creating a $103,800 prize pool. Among the 72 players to earn a piece of it were “mondango” (26th for $674.70), “HinduKrush” (14th for $1,038), and “TTliquorshop” (10th for $1,390.92).

    After 10 hours and 52 minutes, it was Canada’s “Chocolatey” who beat out Lithuania’s “Deividukas13” for the title and $19,618.20 first-place prize. It was a nice win for “Chocolatey,” who back on June 18 finished runner-up in the $5,000 Hurricane for $1,431.
    A Whale of a Score for “Imyurfriend”
    The biggest buy-in of the week was the $1,050 Whale, which featured a $150K GTD. The tournament drew 106 players who rebought 44 times to create a total field of 150 entries. That meant 15 players got paid including “SkallePer58” (12th for $3,600), “Madeon1994” (7th for $6,375), Adrian “ADRI_ATM” Mateos (6th for $7,875), and “Namlleh” (3rd for $19,500).

    After 8 hours and 43 minutes, the title came down to two German players. In the end, “DerEinzahlR” fell to “Imyurfriend,” who took down a $37,500 first-place prize. Earlier this year, “Imyurfriend” bested a field of 137 players to win the $50,000 Volcano for $18,193.
    Chris Moorman Final Tables GREAT 8, Raphael “iBustYa888” Wimmer Wins
    Our newest tournament, the $88 buy-in Sunday GREAT 8 saw its guarantee upped from $30K to $40K, and players responded as 555 of them rebought 282 times to create a $66,960 prize pool. Among the 72 players to get paid were “nortel” (31st for $435.24), “morans350” (13th for $669.60), and a “SpitOnGraves” (11th for $897.26).

    At the final table, all eyes were on 888poker Ambassador and the world’s most decorated online tournament player Chris “888Moorman” Moorman. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to add a new title to his historic résumé as he was eliminated in seventh place for $1,674.

    After 13 hours and 10 minutes, it was Austria’s Raphael “iBustYa888” Wimmer who prevailed over Switzerland’s “stevachenko7” to win $12,655.44. It seems “8” is a lucky number for Wimmer, who at the beginning of the year finished sixth in the Super XL Event #8: Crazy 8 for $3,786.
    “josetecrazy” Takes Down Tornado

    The $109 buy-in, $15,000 GTD Sunday Tornado attracted 113 players who rebought 57 times, which created a $17,000 prize pool. Only 15 spots got paid, and among those to cash but fall short of the final table were Artem “veeea” Vezhenkov (15th for $357), “Travel99” (12th for $408), and “Davidkid15” (10th for $408).

    Some familiar faces at the final table were “billycadu14” (7th for $722.50), “saiyajin1337” (5th for $1,105), and “josef_shvejk” (3rd for $2,210). After 6 hours and 35 minutes, the UK’s “josetecrazy” defeated Canada’s “DuduPa1986” in heads-up play to win $4,250.
    Super XL Champ Wins Sunday Lighting 6-Max

    This week’s $109 buy-in Sunday Lightning was the 6-Max edition, and 179 players who rebought 106 times crushed the $20K GTD by creating a $28,500 prize pool. That was paid out to the final four tables, including to Steven “Kale333” van Zadelhoff (23rd for $270.75), “RedPantRed” (14th for $356.25), “gnassil” (9th for $855), and final table bubble boy “E_Dub” (7th for $855).

    After 7 hours and 54 minutes, Germany’s “dnvz23” defeated “POTITOOOOOOO” in heads-up play to win the $6,840 first-place prize. In February of last year, “dnvz23” won the Super XL Event #25: $150 Knockout for $6,753 plus $369 in bounties. Then, in May of last year, he won Event #39: $30,000 Super XL – Turbo Main Event for $8,246.
