The Players to Have Cashed in the Largest Number of Countries So Far in 2018

Traveling around the world is one of the perks of being a professional poker player. Visiting new places, clashing against players with different techniques and at different level of skill and proficiency, and getting oneself exposed to new and different poker games is enriching experience that could help anyone improve their own game and overall worldview, of course.
The poker enthusiasts of Casino News Daily love poker-related lists and writing about poker lists. This is why they have prepared a brand new such list for their readers. This time, it will revolve around those three players who have cashed in the largest number of different countries around the world since the beginning of the year. Here are these three players and where they have cashed in over the past nine months.
Henri Ovaska
The Finnish poker player has cashed in 21 tournaments in 16 different countries since the beginning of the year, including Italy, Bulgaria, Estonia, Ireland, and many more. While Ovaska might have been quite active on the live tournament scene over the past several months, he has not won any major events. He scored his only victory this year during the Irish Poker Open & Norwegian Championships 2018 in Dublin.
He took down a €170 R.O.E. tournament for a cash prize of €2,700. He collected his largest cash of this year in January, when he finished third in the African Series of Poker/Unibet Deepstack Open €550 Main Event for €9,000. The tournament took place in Grand Bay, Mauritius an exciting destination without any doubt.
Andrew Christopher Hills
The Englishman cashed in 30 live events in 11 different countries around the world, mostly the United States. He has taken down three tournaments so far in 2018, none of them were major ones, though.
A victory in a Wynn Summer Classic $1,100 No-Limit Hold’em secured the player with his largest cash this year. He bested a field of 302 entrants, including fellow countryman Stuard Taylor, whom he clashed into in the heads-up match, to collect the total amount of $72,799 from a total prize pool of a little over $300,263.
Manig Loeser
The German poker pro has cashed more than $2.3 million since the beginning of the year in 25 events that have taken place in 10 different countries. The player has appeared and cashed in events in the United States, Russia, and Montenegro, among others.
It is also important to note that Loeser has long been particularly active on the international high roller scene. Over the past nine months, the player has participated in some of the major high rollers on the live tournament poker calendar. Most prominently, Loeser finished runner-up to Michael Lim in Aussie Millions Poker Championship A$100,000 Challenge for a cash prize of A$558,600 (approximately $445,334).
