September, one of the most exciting months of the year for poker players, has come to an end. The Pokercode community has been crushing the online and live scene. Hannes Jeschka and Matthias Eibinger both collected trophies in Cyprus; whilst the rest of our community flourished in the WCOOP and WSOP Online events.
Long-time community member Hannes Jeschka kicked the month off in style and set the tone for the rest of our members by shipping the $5,000 MPP Main Event in Cyprus for $542,000.
The tournament attracted a star-studded field of 1,032 runners generating a prize pool of just over $4,700,000. Cheered on by fellow community members who attended the event, Hannes eventually made a deal at the final table but managed to close the tournament out to take home his first major trophy.
Winning such a huge event as this has put Hannes’s name on the map as someone to look out for in the near future.
Pokercode Coach and High Roller crusher Matthias Eibinger attended the prestigious Triton Poker Super High Roller Series throughout September and bagged a trophy of his own in Event #9 $50,000 Turbo for $545,000.
This came just six days after sharing a final table in the $50,000 6-max with fellow Pokercode Coach; Fedor Holz. Matthias was in a great position to win that event, but he had to stomach a 5th-place finish after a run of brutal hands that saw him go from chip leader to out in a matter of moments.
However, this didn’t stop him. As all great players do, Matthias bounced back to win his second Triton event of the year and cement himself at the top of the Austria All-Time Money List.
New to the Pokercode community, Adrian ‘Adriano25’ Strobel made quite the impression on everyone by dominating the GG WSOP Online series and collecting some great scores throughout the month.
At the beginning of September, Adrian chopped the $215 ‘Big10’ on ACR for $12,600 and everyone began to take notice. He wasn’t done there as he went on to finish 2nd in the WSOP Online: $250 Saturday Main Event for $25,400 and $210 Bounty Hunters Big Game for $19,500.
As I’m writing this, I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s managed to rack up another five-figure score.
Earlier this month, Grindhouse 3 was at all systems go and the participants were being put through their paces by our Pokercode coaches to take their game to the next level. The early signs suggest that it’s worked.
Samuel ‘Samu’ Mullur took home the $88 Daily Special on GG for $7,300 after previously winning the first trophy of Grindhouse 3 in the $55 Marathon on PokerStars for $2,400. This seemed to motivate the rest of the group as Fabian ‘Taurus97’ Niederreiter and Siegfried ‘Sigi’ Kapeller got in on the action themselves.
Fabi finished 5th in the WSOP Online $210 Bounty Hunters Big Game for $7,150, whilst Sigi followed suit with a 5th place finish of his own in the $25 Sunday Monster Stack for $2,400.
Fresh off his 3rd place in August in the GG WSOP Online Millionaire Maker for $609,000, Alexander has carried on his success, but this time on the live circuit. He took down the Sochi Super High Roller on home soil for $63,000, adding to his already impressive resume.
Whether it’s playing live or from the comfort of his own home, Alexander is showing that he has what it takes to compete with the best in both formats.
