Hendon Mob adding online tournaments to player resultsAugust 12, 2020 1:34 am
For years the go-to-site for live poker tournament earnings has been the Hendon Mob.
Major wins in big tournaments like the World Series of Poker and the World Poker Tour and smaller event cashes at casinos around Las Vegas and the world have all been recorded and used to determine the top tournament poker players in the world.
However, money won on major online tournaments were not recorded and added to player profiles. Even players winning WSOP bracelets on WSOP.com events have not had those cashes added to their profiles. Following an announcement by the Hendon Mob earlier this week that’s about to change.
The Hendon Mob announced on Twitter this week that they will start adding results from Major online poker festivals to player profiles. So, the next player to win a WSOP bracelet online will have that cash added to his or her profile at the Hendon Mob.
To get any cashes from major online festivals added to a Hendon Mob profile they must be reported with real names and not just online screen names. The Hendon Mob Twitter feed made this distinction by tweeting out “…we have agreed to add results from major online poker festivals using published results with real names ONLY. We will not be converting or posting any screen names.”
One other note the Hendon Mob included in their tweet announcement was to clarify that online results will not count towards their money rankings and will not count toward Global Poker Index points and rankings. The Hendon Mob will remain as the source of live-poker tournaments rankings and cash totals, while online totals and rankings will remain as the bread and butter for another site, Pocket Fives.
