The online poker explosion of 2020 proved to be a boon for PocketFivers, especially those who took advantage of the extensive tournament offerings over on 888poker. The online site spent the better part of the year giving players plenty of reasons to log on and play. From their Early Bird Rakeback promotions to the multiple $500,000 GTD XL Series Main Events, the data shows PocketFivers padded their bankrolls by making deep runs in some of the biggest tournaments the online site offered all year long. In total, the top ten PocketFives tournament players on 888poker earned more than $1 million over the course of 139 victories. Denmark’s ‘N33dCoaching’ led all scores in 2020 by earning $124,973 with a total of 221 cashes. A regular grinder of mid-high stakes tournaments, ’N33dCoaching’ put together his six-figure earnings with volume and consistency. He notched 10 wins with his biggest score coming in the April 5 edition of the $25,000 Sunday Challenge when he outlasted the field of 226 entries to earn a $5,529 payday. A late-year heater brought him three more important victories in a four-week span. First, he took down the $16.50 BIG Fish on October 17 for $2,835. Right before the end of the month, he booked another win in the October 30 $10,000 Mega Deep for $3,400. Just two weeks later ‘N33dCoaching’ grabbed the gold medal once again in the $12,000 Mega Deep for another $3,600, which proved to be a critical score to help him take down the 888poker Top Earners leaderboard. Just $3,390 behind ’N33dCoaching’ was online poker savant Peter ‘Belabacsi’ Traply. Traply, who currently sits at #2 on the Online Poker All-Time Money List, locked up a yearly total of $121,583 on 888poker to push his career online earnings to more than $18.4 million. Traply, playing under his screen name ‘kiskutya23’, made the money in 220 tournaments in 2020 and finished in the top spot in 16 of them. Of those 16 victories, 15 were good for four-figure scores and the total of those wins account for $32,898 of his earnings (27% of total scores). One of the most important of his year was his victory in the January 27 edition of the $3,000 Late Mega Deep for $1,924 which became a part of his 12th PocketFives Triple Crown, his first time achieving that accolade since 2013. Surprisingly, his biggest score of the year wasn’t one of those wins. In fact, it was a tournament where he didn’t even place in the top three. In the July 19 edition of the $100,000 Sunday Mega Deep, Traply took home his biggest 888poker score when he finished in fifth place for $5,250. Traply ended the year as the #3-ranked player in Hungary and #156 in the world. Rounding out the top three is Germany’s ‘LIk3az0mbY’ who took home $115,698 over 367 in-the-money finishes. Like the two players above him, ‘LIk3az0mbY’ made his money by sticking to the grind. His 2020 highlights included grabbing a title in 888poker’s PKO Series by winning Event #27 ($20,000 Mini 6-Max) for $3,298. The very next week he hit what would be his high score of the year with a runner-up finish in the April 16 edition of the $20,000 Mega Deep for another $3,937. With the help of his results on 888poker, ‘LIk3az0mbY’ climbed into the top 10 online players in Germany and hit an all-time career-high of #858 in the world. 888poker Top 10 Earners of 2020 [table id=151 /]
