  4. On the final weekend of July, N4kaicame away with the win in the 888 Poker Sunday Challenge.

His reward was $15,000 and you can find him on 888 under the user name EternallyYrs. "It felt good," N4kai told PocketFives, "especially considering that 888 has had some problems with disconnections recently and I was fortunate enough to dodge them." Thanks to the Poland poker community member, PocketFivers raked in about one-third of the prize pool. He added that at the final t

  7. We all know that PokerStarsrules the roost in the online poker world in terms of cash game volume. It has been at the top of PokerScout's cash game traffic rankings for years and shows no signs of coming close to relinquishing that spot any time soon.

It was a very rough three weeks before Sunday, so I am thrilled I could cut some of my losses."
