Welcome to 888poker’s Weekly Deal, with all the best news, results and insights from the past week.

THIS WEEK: December 9, 2018

Sunday Mega Deep Ends in Three-Way Deal and “bomberman115” on Top

The $215 buy-in Sunday Mega Deep always attracts the best of the best, and this week saw 282 runners take to the virtual felt and compete for a share of a $100,000 prize pool. Among the top 40 to get paid were “PBD03” (29th - $670), “PokerFactor” (17th - $1,000), “asolisbri” (11th - $2,000), “Ronaldo4112” (4th - $5,500), and “infaust992” (4th - $8,000).

After 10 hours and 21 minutes, the tournament ended in a three-way deal with Lithuania’s “bomberman115” taking the title and $17,448 in prize money. Meanwhile, Russia’s “EyeofSkadi” and Germany’s “bossamtisch1” took $14,151 and $13,400 for finishing second and third respectively.

You might remember that back in September “bomberman115” took down the $15,000 Mega Deep for $4,715.

Swedes Battle It Out for Whale Title

The $1,050 buy-in Whale attracted 33 runners who rebought 13 times, which meant a $50,000 prize pool was on tap. Among those to compete for it but fall short of cashing were 888poker Ambassador Dominik “888Dominik” Nitsche, “TrollKonst,” and bubble boy Mike “Pipedream17” Dietrich.

Among those to cash were “Hateeeeem” (5th - $4,000), Niklas “tutten7” Åstedt (4th - $5,000), and “IHaveNoBoss” (3rd - $7,500). The final two was comprised of a pair of Swedes, and after 4 hours and 26 minutes, “SalsaFiesta” bested Fredrik “freddeaik11” Björklund to win the title and $20,000 top prize.

Ukraine’s “kazan4ik” Wins Mini Mega Deep Turning $22 Into $4,518 Payday

The $22 buy-in, $20K GTD Mini Mega Deep saw 893 players rebuy 362 times to create a $25,100 prize pool. Among the top 117 players to cash were “Mindcrushers” (100th - $52.71), “poker_oh” (57th - $72.79), “YG_Poker” (21st - $115.46), “Kurple” (15th - $213.35), “wacko90” (6th - $1,014), and “LizzyAlecia” (4th - $1,820).

After “mo3ok911” bowed out in third place for $2,435, the title came down to Ukraine’s “kazan4ik” and Russia’s “stealwave888.” The tournament came to an end 8 hours and 42 minutes in with the Ukrainian emerging victorious for $4,518.

Malta’s “KToFTW” Takes Down Sunday Deepstack Monsoon

The $55 buy-in, $10,000 GTD Sunday Deepstack Monsoon drew 197 players who rebought 49 times. That created a $12,300 prize pool that was paid out to the top 27 players including “GramNaKartke” (23rd - $123), “RazvyB” (12th - $215.25), “JNSP77” (6th - $615), and “Duckface01” (3rd - $1,445.25).

After 9 hours and 17 minutes, Malta’s “KToFTW” bested XL Eclipse runner-up “futomaki123” in heads-up play to win the title and $2,644.50 first-place prize. It marked “KToFTW’s” first win on 888poker since the August 3 $10,000 Monsoon, which he won for $2,300.

A Brazilian Monsoon Results in Two Big Winners

The $55 buy-in Monsoon easily surpassed its $10,000 GTD by drawing 227 players who rebought 76 times, which created a $15,150 prize pool. Among the top 36 players to finish in the money were “popsnpoker” (18th - $166.65), “DR.Lorax” (7th - $530.25), “Dablinov” (5th - $878.70), and “SurgeonV” (3rd - $1,711.95).

After 6 hours and 50 minutes, the final two players, who happened to be Brazilian, struck a deal and then played to a winner. In the end, Caio “CVriserio” Risério won it for $2,654 while “NowickiGalo” took second, albeit for more money to the tune of $2,716.

“eltxupacabra” Wins Progressive Bounty in Turbo Mega Deep

The $215 buy-in, $15K GTD Turbo Mega Deep had 67 players rebuy 17 times, which created a $17,640 total prize pool ($9,240 in the regular prize pool and $8,400 in the bounty prize pool).

It was just the latest win for “eltxupacabra” in 2018. Back in March, he won the Mega Deep for more than $20K, and then in May won the XL Inferno $50K Crazy 8 for $9,500.

The Sunday Deepstack Monsoon Doesn’t Break the “Dam4666”

The $55 buy-in Sunday Deepstack Monsoon featured a $10,000 GTD, which it easily surpassed by drawing 198 players who rebought 91 times.

Luck of the Irish Prevails in Monsoon as “casco38” Captures Title

This week’s $215 buy-in Sunday Mega Deep drew 349 players to 888poker.

XL Inferno High Roller Champ Victorious in Late Mega Deep

The $215 buy-in Late Mega Deep attracted 85 players who rebought 25 times, which meant the $20K GTD was surpassed. The $23,100 total prize pool saw $12,100 go into the regular prize pool and $11,000 into the bounty prize pool.

The $109 buy-in, $20K GTD Sunday Challenge saw 197 players take to the virtual felt and rebuy 68 times, which resulted in a $26,500 prize pool up for grabs.

“gixeru” Claims Monsoon Title for Romania

The $55 buy-in Monsoon crushed its $10,000 GTD by attracting 225 players who rebought 60 times, which created a $14,250 prize pool.

“Utd879908” Claims Sunday Mega Deep Title for Nearly $20K

This week’s $215 buy-in, $100K GTD Sunday Mega Deep attracted 355 players who rebought 158 times, which created a $102,600 prize pool.

“alwayswin111” Slays the Whale

The$1,050 buy-in Whale had 34 players rebuy 14 times. Some of the big names to compete for the $50,000 prize pool – but fail to get a piece of it – were 888poker Ambassador Martin “MJacobson888” Jacobson, Niklas “tutten7” Åstedt, and “Mark_landers,” just to name a few.

Only the top five players got paid including “HateH4teHate” (5th - $4,000), Anton “anteen” Bertilsson (4th - $5,000), and “888topPair” (3rd - $7,500). After 5 hours and 33 minutes in the tournament, “alwayswin111” defeated Brazil’s “BeeTheBeagle” in heads-up play to win the title and $20,000 first-place prize.

“EZ.PZ” Makes the Sunday Challenge Look Easy Peasy

The $109 buy-in, $20K GTD Sunday Challenge surpassed its guarantee by drawing 192 players who rebought 53 times.

Germany’s “JaNeiZZzKl4r” Weathers the Monsoon

The $55 buy-in Monsoon surpassed its $10K GTD by drawing 226 players who rebought 53 times, which created a $13,950 prize pool. Among the top 36 players to cash were “Hala1988” (25th - $118.57), “dayofwin” (13th - $188.32), “TomBrady17” (4th - $1,185.75), and “n0sferatv” (3rd - $1,576.35).

After nearly seven hours, it was Germany’s “JaNeiZZzKl4r” defeating Russia’s “4_seasons” in heads-up play to win $2,852.88. It came a little over a month that “JaNeiZZzKl4r “outlasted a field of 82 players to win the $12,000 Mega Deep event for $3,300.

Brazil’s “brunobezerr4” Takes Down Sunday Deepstack Starfish

The $22 buy-in, $5,000 GTD Sunday Deepstack Starfish crushed its guarantee by attracting 300 players to the virtual felt and seeing them rebuy 80 times. That created a $7,600 prize pool that was paid out to the top 45 players including “Renato2322” (32nd - $49.40), “keyhell” (21st - $57), “Artistelis” (9th - $133), “ozzie22” (4th - $627), and “LuckJesus” (3rd - $836).

After two minutes shy of nine hours in the tournament, it was Brazil’s “brunobezerr4” besting Canada’s “lunchbox1980” in heads-up play to win the title and accompanying $1,470.60 first-place prize.

On Their Way to Vegas!

Remember, every Sunday at 20:30 GMT now through June 888poker will host a $1,050 “WSOP 2019 Main Event Package Qualifier.”

THIS WEEK: February 17, 2019

For the second time this year, we at 888poker offered a “RakeLESS Sunday,” which meant a full slate of online tournaments with no rake! Players must have loved it as they turned out in droves to compete for big, rake-free prize pools.
