Weekly High Stakes Report


We return with another update on all of the online high stakes action that took place during the week last week. There was not quite as much action as usual this time around, though this is simply because of a certain PokerStars WCOOP taking place.

The PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker is pretty much the online equivalent of the WSOP, so it really is understandable that the high stakes cash games will have been affected on both PokerStars and Full Tilt.


There was some action though, starting last Saturday when “Denoking” and Doug “WCGRider” Polk played some No Limit Hold’em Heads Up at a selection of tables with the former coming out as the winner to the tune of $228.9k. The other big winner on the day was “thecortster” after he banked a healthy $197k.


For the next few days there was not too much action but it all picked up again on Tuesday with “Denoking” again being among the winners with a score of $131.1k after another heads up math with “WCGRider”. He was not the biggest winner of the day however as that honour fell to “KPR16” who banked $251.6k after a session at the $2k/$4k Fixed Limit Omaha Hi/Lo tables.


Wednesday saw Dan “w00ki3z” Cates, who is the leading the yearly profits for this year so far online, add a few more totaling $197.3k. He usually plays over at Full Tilt under his screen name of “jungleman12” but took this profit from PokerStars where he was probably also playing in some WCOOP events.


Thursday saw the return of the Doug “WCGRider” Polk and “Denoking” battle with the former this time coming out on top. Polk took profits of $736.6k to completely wipe out what he had lost in the previous two sessions. They were again playing Heads Up No Limit Hold’em across a number of tables and at different stakes.

The week ended fairly quietly and the next notable action was not seen until Saturday where “bbvisbaadforme” was the only player to record profits of more than $100k. He took home $109.1k after an hour long session at the 2-7 Triple Draw tables. The majority of those profits came from the pockets of Viktor “Isildur1” Blom who is having a rough time of it at the moment online.
