“JAMA1CA2008” has Career Month with $455,783
Tuesday, February 09, 2010
If you were going to classify online poker player “JAMA1CA2008”, you would probably put him in the semi-pro category…at best. After all, JAMA1CA2008 had just $11,582 in total winnings last year. But the month of January may have made him a full-time professional poker player after a huge month.
JAMA1CA2008 blew past both his 2009 and career totals after earning $455,783 during the month of January. JAMA1CA’s strong month was anchored by a first place finish in the Full Tilt Poker $1 Million Guaranteed.
Despite competing against Full Tilt pros like Allen Cunningham (who finished 9th place), JAMA1CA2008 was able to take the first place prize of $225,368 after beating “4ortik76” heads-up. With the win, he now leads the Poker Pro Labs Top Shark of the Year MTT leader board. Eric “AceQuad” Brix moved up to second place after winning the PokerStars Sunday Million following a four-way chop.
On the Top Shark of the Year Sit and Go Tournaments board, a familiar face is looking to defend his title. Mike “chapmoney” Chappus, who won the 2009 SNG title after a strong month in December, is currently sitting in 4th place. He’ll have to work hard though to catch “DDBeast” who is at the top of the SNG Tournaments leader board.
DDBeast had a very strong month over at PokerStars after cashing for over $28,000. DDBeast’s closest competitor right now is “m118834” who is making his money on the Full Tilt Poker sit and go’s. So far, m118834 has made $23,574, and will definitely be looking to add to that total in February. Both the MTT and SNG leader board races should get even more competitive as the year goes on.
