“hateh4tehate” is the Biggest Winner at 888poker This Week
Another week has come and gone and players at 888poker have been helping themselves to some huge scores in the exciting and value-packed tournaments held on the site.
The biggest cash of the week is now in the 888poker account of Malta’s “hateh4tehate” who took down the $120,000 Mega Deep on Sunday for a cool $25,912.50. The Maltese player outlasted 690 opponents in the $215 buy in tournament to get his hands on a nice Christmas bonus.
Another large score stemming from the Sunday action went to “proplatish” who turned $320 into $22,567.44 by triumphing in the $100,000 Baby Whale. A field of 392 turned out for this week’s Baby Whale, helping surpass the guarantee by some $17,600.
One of the more innovative tournaments at 888poker is the $50,000 Quarterback, which costs $215 to enter, but allows you to rebuy a quarter of your starting stack for only $50 if you bust during the late registration period. A total of 212 entries were processed, creating a $53,650 prize pool, of which $11,534.75 was reserved for the champion, “Jeans2.0.”
The $80,000 Sunday Challenge is one of 888poker’s most popular tournaments. It only costs $90 to enter, but allows players to make one rebuy. This gives those firing one bullet extra value as those around them build the prize pool. This week’s edition saw the guarantee beaten by $4,230.
Three players chopped the remaining prize pool when the tournament reached its latter stages, each walking away with at least $11,397.60.

Finally, the result from a popular tournament held every Tuesday at 7:35 p.m. GMT: the $25,000 Tuesday Challenge. This event’s buy-in of $109 usually attracts a field that is substantial enough to break the guarantee, which is exactly what happened this week when 256 players turned out. They were all outlasted by Romania’s “mioritmic” who banked $5,235.20 for their victory.
