The Weekly Online Movers And Shakers
The bigger money players had a quiet week on PokerStars, with there not being the usual 500k swings we have grown accustomed to. There was still many hundreds of thousands switching hands though. Especially when you compare it to last week’s action.
Last week we had a bit of a shakeup at the top as Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky took the top spot on the PokerStars earnings chart for the year, taking it from “EireAbu”. It was only a slender lead though and it literally did not even last one week, Sulsky lost $97,915 to hand the league back to his rival.
The Big Winners!
Though it was a bit more of a quiet week, “mtvdeuem” still managed to make a good profit of $278,071 for the week. He achieved that after playing over 5000 hands within 137 sessions. He was followed by Alex “BiatchPeople” Luneau who stacked up $228,226 and “wilhasha” with $153,084 and “FaKeOrReal” taking home a healthy $129,634.

A Little Bit Of Action!
The biggest action of the week took part on an Omaha Hi/Lo table at PokerStars where “madmags4” played at the $1,000/$2,000 FL Omaha Hi/Lo tables. He was up against players such as Gus Hansen and “RaiseOnce” and actually came out a good $62,000 in profit.
By all means it was not a massive score, but it was enough to turn him into the day’s biggest winner. He only just beat “GVOZDIKA55” in that respect. Benny “toweliester” Spindler was third in line on that particular day winning $53,800.
It is not understood exactly why this week was a little bit quiet, perhaps many players decided to take a break at the same time. However, you can be sure that it will not be long before the worlds bigge4st poker players return and started trading $500k like they are trump cards.
