November is in the books and Niklas “ragen70” Heinecker can officially do his own TV show that could be named “1 Month, 2 Million.” The German pro is on a major upswing as of late and crushes everyone in his path while playing his favorite game: 2-7 Triple Draw.
According to HighStakesDB, he is the major winner in November with $2,436,939 cashed almost exclusively at the 2-7 TD tables. He played a total of 13,921 hands and 102 sessions last month. Just in the last two days, ragen70 taught Viktor “Isildur1” Blom a lesson and took from him almost $500k. With this incredible result, the German widened the gap between him and the rest of the online poker world in the 2013 biggest winners’ leaderboard. He is now sitting comfortably in the top spot with a huge profit of $5,661,239. The difference between him and second place is over $2.5 million.
The next big winner of November, another German who plays on Full Tilt under the nickname “Sanlker,” cashed in $2.1 million less than Heinecker. He won “just” $319k last month by playing good old No-Limit Hold’em. His last major session was played on Friday when he battled unknown “bbvisbadforme” and Kyle “KPR16” Ray at the $100/$200 NLHE tables.
The biggest monthly winners on PokerStars were “Crazy Elior” and “YurNas.” Crazy Elior won $259,643 in almost 21k hands and 95 sessions. He played mostly 8-Game and is at the top of the mixed-games leaderboard in the 11th month of the year. YurNas is a NLHE specialist who ended the month with a $253,180 profit in over 10k hands.
Gus Hansen is once again the biggest online loser with a staggering -$2,185,056 in November. The Dane lost over $1.5 million in 14,586 hands at the 2-7 TD tables. He also lost important parts of his what seems to be a never-ending bankroll at Pot-Limit Omaha and Fixed-Limit Omaha 8-or-Better. Overall, Hansen leaked $8,582,115 in 1,591 sessions this year.
Close to Denmark and Gus Hansen is Sweden and Isildur1. After an incredible $3 million bankroll boost in October, Blom lost $2,132,506 in over 30k hands last month. He is the biggest 2-7 TD loser with -$1,656,670. In the yearly leaderboard, the Swede fell from the top of the online poker world to the eight spot. His profit shrank to $1,418,594 in 2013. He is first, though, in the nosebleeds grinders’ section. Isildur1 played the most hands by far at the highest limits, putting in 418,454 in 11 months.
The third biggest loser is another poker player from Northern Europe, Finland’s Patrik “FinddaGrind” Antonius. He lost $566,174 by playing 2-7 TD. For the year, however, Antonius is a top 10 winner with a profit of $1,285,557.
The NLHE November loser title was taken by unknown bbvisbadforme. He leaked -$223,999 in 4,129 hands and 32 sessions. The unknown had some major battles with “Denoking” at the $200/$400 Heads-Up tables. In fact, the Heads-Up battle between those two produced the biggest six-figures pots of the month. Will they continue their challenge in December?
