Poker pros love to play the Sunday majors and poker rooms love it if their team pros win.
888poker and Dominik Nitsche are likely all smiles today, then, as Nitsche took down yet another major online prize for him and Team 888 yesterday.
The German team pro took down The Octopus, beating 110 players along the way and streaming it live on Twitch with commentary as an added bonus.
Nitsche Wrestles Octopus
If you’re looking for a Team pro to to bag a big Sunday tournament, Dominik Nitsche is one of your safest bets.
This past Sunday night, after a little more than nine hours of play, Nitsche won the last hand of the $215 buy-in tournament.
He cashed $7,742 for his win — not the biggest score of his career, sure, but a nice one to take down while live streaming on Twitch.
As it played out the final three battled it out for a while three-handed before two implosions gave Nitsche the title in three hands.
First, one of his opponents ran an ill-timed bluff against Nitsche’s full house.
In the next hand the other opponent made a bad call. And in the first hand heads-up, Nitsche just got lucky.
Runners-up Bumbi320 and OO6007 still took home nice circa $5k scores themselves. Watch the full Octopus final table complete with Nitsche’s usual on-point commentary below:
B_thebenlar Big Winner Again
Just last month Canadian player B_thebenlar prevailed in the Baby Whale on 888poker. This past weekend he went on to win the $120,000 guaranteed Mega Deep.
In a field of 667 players it took the Canadian 13.5 hours to collect all the chips and earn the biggest prize of the 888poker weekend.
B_thebenlar won just over $25,000 beating out thulionho from Brazil and OO6007, also from Canada, as the final resistance.
The second largest winning check of the weekend went to MisterN411 from the Netherlands who had almost $20k transferred to his 888poker account.
Germany and the Netherlands celebrated two more wins in 888poker’s Sunday major events.
luckyr1ver conquered The Crocodile to cash in for $11,801 while Dutch player Graftekkel proceeded to win the Sunday Challenge after he made a deal with his heads-up opponent YordanPetrov.
Graftekkel had the smaller stack at the time so the players ended up with $14,318 for YordanPatrov and $13,185 for the eventual winner from the Netherlands.
