A lot of people start the year making resolutions on how to do things better in the coming year, but one thing all poker players want to improve their tournament or cash game strategy every month and win big! Let's take a look at how crazy the start of the year was for the Team Pokercode Community, with scores from our coaches, community members, and some familiar faces claiming huge prizes!
The year started great for community members Alex' VitrixOne’ Baier ($1,702 big $11 PokerStars) and Dominik' Boehmi’ Boehm. Immediately hopping on the grind in 2022 delivered them a victory on the first day of the year. Alex took down the Big $11 on PokerStars, winning $1,702, while Boehm claimed $1,365 for taking down the Bounty Hunters Hyper Special $21 on Pokercode by GGPoker.
Another familiar face within the Pokercode community is Mario Mosboeck. The ex-professional football player turned high-stakes tournament poker crusher again in the $10,300 Super MILLION$. It wasn't the easiest of final tables with Michael Addamo and Pablo Brito Silva hunting for the title, but the Austrian Grindhouse 1 participant bowed out in 3rd place for $308,385 to start the year on the right foot.
Pokercode Stream Team member Jan' HansiWurst’ Wagner had the month of his life on the online felt improving his most significant online cash not once, but twice in January! On January 9th, he made a deep run in the $50 Fifty Stack of the WSOPC Series on Pokercode by GGPoker. ‘Hansi’ was eliminated in an unfortunate way when his ace-king couldn't hold against the ace-eight of his opponent. The $5,010 eased the pain, but the German DJ didn't lean back after.
Two weeks after the unfortunate third-place elimination, Jan found himself back on a big final table. He already left behind over 8,000 players in the $33 Bounty Builder on PokerStars and was eyeing the first-place prize of $14,850 + bounties. When he reached the final three players, they made a deal, and he settled for $12,866 with the bounties left to play for. Jan ultimately claimed victory, winning a total of $6,928 in bounties for a score closing in on the $20,000 mark. Congrats Hansi!
Roland Rokita already won a $150 GGMasters title right after the Pokercode Grindhouse took place in 2020, and he found himself on familiar territory when he reached the same final table during the early hours of January 17th. However, he wasn't the only player repping Pokercode, with community member 'TheFirling87’ joining him.
The two ultimately played against each other for the trophy when the other opponents were felted. Rokita managed to win another GGMasters title when he dealt with ‘TheFirling87’, who had to settle for $46,453.
Plenty of (online) poker players will recognise the name Simon Rønnow when accompanied by the online nickname ‘IgorKarkarof’. The Harry Potter fanatic was back on the online felt in January and couldn't stay behind all the ‘students’. On the final day of the month, Simon peaked in January when he won a trophy in the $1,050 Sunday High Roller on PokerStars. He defeated 'A.Wesker999’ heads-up to take home about $44,000!
