Weekly High Stakes – Hansen, Cates Enjoy Success

Pack of Dollars

Another week was completed at the high stakes online tables over the weekend and we have returned to review the action from the past seven days. Gus Hansen had a great end to the week whilst Dan Cates began it with a big score.

Check out all the action below.


The week started off extremely brightly for Dan “jungleman12” Cates after a 26 hour session at the Mixed Game tables brought him profits of $677.4k. This came from the likes of Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond and Viktor “Isildur1” Blom.


Sunday continues where Saturday left off with the action producing a number of big winners. “samrostan” was the biggest of those after he took home $356.7k after beating the likes of “SanIker”, and “Trueteller” at the  2-7 Triple Draw tables.


Monday was the turn of “PostFlopAction” to top the profits charts with a healthy $481.1k being added to his account. Most of the action was found at the 8-Game tables where other big winners included “punting-peddler” who took home $406.7k.


The action did not ease up on Tuesday either as another batch of players looked to up their profits for the year so far. “Denoking” was the most successful at doing this with profits of $344.7k at the $300/$600 No Limit Holdem tables against Ike “luvtheWNBA” Haxton.


SanIker” has been one of the most feared online players recently and he had another great day on Wednesday with profits of $250.4k. This was achieved after a long session at the $2,000/$4,000 2-7 Triple Draw tables. He was up against the likes of “Kagome Kagome” and “samrostan”.


The struggles that Gus Hansen has had over the past few years have been well documented but he did have a winning day on Thursday with a score of $235.9k going his way. He picked these profits up on both the 2-7 Triple Draw and 8-Game tables.


On a rare occasion for Hansen, this winning streak carried over into the next day too. He banked another $275.7k to bring him profits of more than half a million in two days. Again he made most of these on the highly popular 8-Game tables and will now think that he has perhaps turned the corner.

Come back next week to see if Gus Hansen can continue his winning ways or whether he lets his profits slip.
