Biggest Online Winners and Losers for the Week

Mouse and money

Viktor Blom managed to take home $202,716 in profit on Full Tilt in just 1,419 hands.  “Isildur1” joined the PokerStars $1,000/$2,000 2-7 triple draw table on Thursday losing $114,300 in less than an hour.

While Blom was active both sites and the biggest winner of the week , the general lull in the high stakes action of the last few weeks continued, with only a couple of six-figure swings.

Rui “PepperoniF” Cao, was in the number two winners spot, with $121,317 in profit.  His profit was all on PokerStars where he played 1,754  hands over seven sessions; he lost $36,014 on Full Tilt.

The other notable winners for the week were Daniel Cates and “terryhsu” both on PokerStars.

For the third consecutive week German pro “Sanlker”, who plays as “RaulGonzales” on PokerStars,  holds the dubious distinction of being the biggest loser after dropping $400,854 over six sessions and 853 hands.  Elior Sion and “bbvisbadforme”, both on Full Tilt failed to show a profit after 3,196 and 379 hands respectively.

Sion was very active on the $500/$1,000 8-game table where he faced both “HoldemJill9” and Alexander “PostflopAction” Kostritsyn  in separate sessions.  Kostritsyn managed to drop almost $80,000 during his five-hour heads up match against Scion.  It looked like Scion would have another profitable session during his match with “HoldemJill9.”  Scion was up $100,000 early, but “HoldemJill9” recovered and left the table a $53,000 winner.  The two dropped down in stakes where Sion lost another $24,000.

PokerStars player “WRUUUUM” had a nice day at the $50/$100 PLO tables showing a profit of $60,400.
