The Weekly Online Movers And Shakers

During the week we had the completion of the PokerStars European Poker Tour San Remo, with the culmination being Benny Swindler taking down the €10,000 High Roller title. Whilst this was all happening, we had all of the usual suspects plying their trade online at the high stakes tables on PokerStars.

Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond and the self destructive Viktor “Isildur1” Blom both actually fared very well, with the former winning a total of $297,720 and the latter $212,280 after very productive weeks.

Patpatman” was the weeks biggest loser after he lost a mind blowing $654,593 during the week, this was the biggest drop by some margin as the next biggest loser was Ilari “IlariFIN” Sahamies with a drop of $264,245, completing the top 3 losers was Alex ‘Kanu7” Millar who lost $227,910 during the last week.

Tollerene Passes The $2 Million Mark!

Ben “Ben86” Tollerene had another productive week to bring him up over the $2 million profit for the last couple of months play. He added to last week’s profit of $178,772 with another $216,000 this week, with it coming on the $200/$400 PLO tables whilst playing against the likes of Ilari “IlariFIN” Sahamies, Viktor “Isildur1” Blom and “RaiseOnce

His biggest pot actually occurred when he was in a hand against another five players; it started when “Odd_Oddsen” bet out with $828, who was then called by “The Liar”, Sahamies. “azn_baller3” then raised that amount to $4,540 of which Tollerene called. “Odd_Oddsen” raised the pot further to the tune of $20,644 which persuaded both “The Liar” and Sahamies to fold.

“azn_baller3” called for all of his chips followed by Tollerene. “Odd_Oddsen” then pushed all-in for $18,039,54 and Tollerene again called once the flop of 4c-Js-Ac came down. The turn card of the 2c gave Tollerene the flush as he was holding 9c-8c-9s-8s, whilst the river didn’t help any of his opponents meaning he won the pot of $89,917.

With regards to the year’s biggest losers, time is beginning to run out to get themselves back into profit before the end of the year. However, with hundreds of thousands being won and lost each day on the high stakes tables, it is certainly possible for them to pull themselves back.
