The BBZ Poker Community Awards are designed to celebrate our students’ success stories and the best posts in our Discord.
We’ll be giving out three awards every month: the Constant Crusher award, Like A Boss award, and the Best Mic Drop award.
Find out who won in May 2022 below.
Constant Crusher Award
The Constant Crusher Award is exactly what it sounds like: a big shout-out to the person who consistently put up great results throughout the month.
This is the second time in five months that Aleksis–known as ‘Dr.Durrrq’ on PokerStars, ‘SimplySensational’ on ACR, and ‘WhereIsMyBeer’ on GGPoker–has picked up this award. In fact, he was named our first-ever Constant Crusher back in January.
Aleksis had another fantastic month throughout May. Here’s a look at the results:
May 6 – 1st $44 Bounty Builder (PokerStars) – $1,942
May 6 – 2nd $109 NLHE (ACR) – $1,242
May 6 – 1st $100 PKO Hyper (ACR) – $1,560
May 9 – 1st $33 Bounty Builder (PokerStars) – $3,058
May 9 – 1st $55 NLHE (ACR) – $1,527
May 13 – 1st $105 Bounty Hunters Special (GGPoker) – $1,948
May 14 – 2nd $55 NLHE PKO (ACR) – $1,837
May 14 – 1st $22 Bounty Builder Saturday Special (PokerStars) – $1,576
May 15 – 2nd $55 NLHE PKO (ACR) – $2,100
May 16 – 8th $530 SCOOP Sunday Million – $19,784
May 21 – 2nd $50 Daily Special (GGPoker) – $2,180
May 21 – 3rd $88 NLHE (ACR) – $1,215
You’ll notice the most significant score on that list came from a massive run in the SCOOP $530 Sunday Million on PokerStars. This time Aleksis couldn’t land a podium finish, but still picked up a healthy $19,784 for an eighth-place finish.
Just a phenomenally consistent month. Congrats, Aleksis.
Like A Boss Award
The Like A Boss Award goes to someone from the BBZ community who pulled off a particularly impressive feat across the month.
We’ve got to hand it to this BBZ community member, who made two massive SCOOP final tables within just a few days of each other.
andrzn finished fourth in a $33 7-Max Turbo PKO edition of the Sunday Cooldown for $5,036.
Then a couple of days later, finished second in a $215 PKO Freezeout, narrowingly missing out on a SCOOP title but banking $28,353 for their efforts.
Best Mic Drop Award
The Best Mic Drop Award goes to BBZ community member who dropped the sexiest result into the BBZ Brags Discord channel.
There’s nothing like popping into the Discord and just dropping the fact that you’ve won a SCOOP.
That’s exactly what eike_akio, known as Mr. Havener on PokerStars, did.
He took down the $55 SCOOP Kickoff–the second even of the series–for a massive $39,036 score and a trophy.
