Another week has come to an end on the high stakes tables at the biggest online poker sites and we are back to see which players were raking it in and which were struggling to keep hold of their money. It would be understandable if the high stakes cash games were affected by the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online poker that has been going on for the past couple of weeks, yet it seems there has been no real affect at all.
The big winner over the past week was Phil “Polarizing” Ivey, with him actually earning more than double than the second at the winners list, “trex313″. Phil Ivey has started putting in a winning week to start clawing back the losses he has suffered online so far this year and is up $1.1m since Tuesday and almost up $1m the whole week.
