Online poker tournaments are bigger than normal on Sundays at 888poker. In addition to normal tournaments featuring larger guarantees than what take place during the week, the online poker room showcases a few special tournaments, including the $120,000 Mega Deep and the $100,000 Sunday Challenge each weekend and the $150,000 Whale and the $100,000 Baby Whale on alternating Sundays.
While many players pulled down huge cashes in March, three players stick out the most by taking down at least one of the marquee Sunday events on 888poker and appearing on the final table in another one.
Dutch player Pim "SuprNintend0" de Goede notched a win in the Mega Deep on March 6 for $28,920. He followed this up with another big score on March 27 when he took seventh in the Baby Whale for $4,651.
Argentina's Ivan "ivanascasubi" Vilchez cashed for a bit more than de Goede after first taking second place in the Baby Whale on March 13 for $20,958 before outlasting a huge 1,018-player field in the Sunday Challenge on March 27 to take home $24,729.
We saved the biggest of the trio for last, as Hungary's Peter "breeth" Turmezey first took third place in the Whale for $19,259 on March 20 before taking down the Baby Whale a week later for a haul of $27,189.
While these three players landed two big scores for big wins, other players scored big by simply winning one. Due to the big $600 buy-in, the Whale generates some huge prize pools. On March 6, "fiestafiesta" outlasted a field of 324-players to win $35,422, while two weeks later "CrystalMad" played his way to the top of a bigger field of 437 players to win $46,912.
