Top Winners in Each Category

We looked at how the best winners in each category performed, their EV bb and bb/100. From the NL100 and up, you’ll find more professional, high-stake players than in previous NL categories.

NL100 Top Winner

Supermegopro was one of the dominant players in the PokerStars NL50 a few years ago. However, he’s the NL100 class winner for 2022, winning $28,436 over 495,067 hands. These results give him a 5.7 bb/100, while he has a 7 EV bb/100, as he won $35,068 under the expected value (EV). In 2022, 368,498 hands were short-handed (SH) tables.

NL200 Top Winner

One of the most significant NL50 rivals to Supermegopro a few years ago was BSTUSim, who is now the top winner of NL200 in 2022. He won $48,047 over 257,789 hands, with a 9.2 bb/100. The expected value of his winnings is around $45,840, giving him an 8.8 EV bb/100. He’s a player who plays almost equally on SH and full-ring (FR) tables but made more on the FR tables than the SH ones.

The runner-up, MrDuckens, is the best player in the SH circles. MrDuckens almost matched BSTUSim’s result, but only by playing SH tables, winning $47,312 over 262,742 hands, with a 9 bb/100.

Rakeback and Poker

It’s clear that there’s an emphasis on the quality of your plays over quantity these days. The reason for the higher number of hands is the larger rakeback in 2011. Rakeback is a vital part of poker, as it gives a percentage of your stake back every time you play at a table. This is crucial for professional players and is still a major component of modern poker tournaments.
