Jonathan 'OMGsete' Concepción Among the Big Winners at 888poker in February

Jonathan "OMGsete" Concepción

For online poker tournament players, Sundays are typically the biggest day of the week at 888poker with many regularly scheduled tournaments featuring bigger than normal guaranteed prize pools.

In addition, each Sunday features a handful of special tournaments including the Mega Deep and the Sunday Challenge each weekend, plus the Whale and the Baby Whale on alternating Sundays.

The last Sunday in February was even more special thanks to the Sunday Sale promotion which slashed the prices of many tournaments including the Mega Deep and the Sunday Challenge. The tournament proved popular with more than double its usual entrants, resulting in huge prize pools.

United Kingdom's "Tom38x" took the most advantage of this promotion. He outlasted a field of 1,818 entrants to win the $120,000 Sunday Sale Mega Deep for $30,706. Russia's "Crazy_Freak" also won big after navigating a field of 1,551 to win the $80,000 Sunday Sale Challenge for $17,762.

Jonathan "OMGsete" Concepción, a Spanish player living in the United Kingdom, was the month's biggest winner after shipping The $100,000 Whale on Feb. 5 for $32,689. While Concepción is a regular at 888poker, this was his first victory in the Whale. He had a close call with a second-place finish in The $150,000 WHALE on Nov. 22, 2015 for $28,264.

Two weeks after Concepción's victory, United Kingdom's "MOI_est_JEAN" shipped The $100,000 Whale on Feb. 19 for $28,423.

Czech Republic's "PuntSonPunt" won The Baby $100,000 Whale on Feb. 12 and Mexico's "B_thebenlar" won it on Feb. 26 for $21,704.
