Heinecker Now Up $5.3M From Web Poker In 2013

German In The Black Nearly $10 Million Between Live And Online This Year


The past several days have netted German high-stakes poker pro Niklas “ragen70” Heinecker another $400,000 or so, which brings his earnings on the year on Full Tilt Poker to an astounding $5.3 million, by far the most in the online poker world.

What is even more incredible is that he didn’t even start grinding on the software until the spring.

According to Full Tilt, the most recent winnings were the result of a few big sessions at the $2,000-$4,000 limit deuce-to-seven triple draw tables.

Heinecker was playing against the likes of Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, Gus Hansen, Alex “PostflopAction” Kostritsyn and Patrik “FinddaGrind” Antonius.

In June, Heinecker took down the HK 1,000,000 ($130,000 USD) buy-in event that featured more than 120 entries. A massive HK 119 million prize pool ($15.4 million USD) was created. Heinecker captured $4.5 million of that huge purse.

He is up nearly $10 million this year from playing cards.

With the recent losses for Hansen, the Danish pro is now down an incredible $14.29 million lifetime on Full Tilt, his lowest point ever, according to HighstakesDB.
