  1. April has been mighty kind to ragen70, whose real name is Niklas Heinecker (pictured). He earned $514,000 at the Full Tilt PokerTriple Draw tables on Wednesday to bring his three-day haul to an impressive $1.4 million, according to HighStakesDB. And it's not like Heinecker is facing off against the peons of the poker world either. In fact, he has been battling some of the game's top minds. According to HighStakesDB, "Heinecker did all of his damage [on Wednesday]during a six-hour morning session, where he put together two big table scores. In his first match of the morning, he beat Phil 'Polarizing' Ivey heads-up in a 78-minute session, winning $115k. His second big score was a $332.9k three-hour win at table Upper. Once again, Ivey was the big loser, dropping a further $194k, with other players including PostflopAction, samrostan, Gus Hansen, thecortster, and Isildur1." Heinecker calls Germany home and HighStakesDB began tracking him in late 2010. He has opted out of the site's long-term tracking, but we know he is up nearly $1 million in the last seven days, all of which has come in Draw Games. On Tuesday, Heinecker booked $310,000 in winnings playing $2,000-$4,000 2-7 Triple Draw. The site narrated, "All of ragen70's success came from his early morning sessions, which started just after 2am. His biggest win was a $299.9k win at table Pikedale from a four-hour session where his opponents included Gus Hansen, FinddaGrind, OMGClayAiken, Kagome Kagome, and Crazy Elior. The biggest donator was OMGClayAiken, who dropped $195k at the table." The site added, "OMGClayAiken also provided ragen70 with another big win, as the pair played a nine-minute heads-up session half-an-hour into the Pikedale session, with ragen70 winning $109k in just 18 hands." That's an average of $6,000 per hand in the mini-session against Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond (pictured). Heinecker was the biggest winner HighStakesDB tracked on Tuesday and Wednesday. Last June, Heinecker hit it big on the live scene, winning the GuangDong Asia Millions Main Event for a healthy $4.4 million. That tournament had 71 entries and 54 rebuys for a total prize pool of $15.3 million and Heinecker beat Australia's Jeffrey Rossiter heads-up. He has $4.7 million in live tournament earnings, according to the Hendon Mob, which is good for fifth on the all-time money list for Germany. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?
