The action has been fierce once again at the high stakes table of both PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker throughout last week, bringing us many big winners and unfortunately many big losers. Let’s take a look at some of the players that have had a week to remember at the tables.
Over The Weekend
Last weekend was all about three players, Phil “OMGCLayAiken” Galfond, “Trueteller” and Phil “Polarizing” Ivey. Each recorded some nice profits of at least $250k but “Trueteller” claimed an astonishing $600k.
Galfond played on Saturday at the 2-7 Triple Draw tables against the likes of “PostFlopAction”, Dan “Jungleman12” Cates and “samrostan” and walked away with profits of $251.4k.
It was on Sunday that both Ivey and “Trueteller” took their profits however with the former recording his profit of $252.2k whilst taking in sessions at both the 2-7 Triple Draw and 8-Game tables. As for “Trueteller”, all of his money came from just one player in “samrostan”, taking $696.5k from his opponent across a number of heads up sessions on the Pot Limit Omaha tables.
Early Part Of The Week
Niki Jedlicka was once again the name in the headlines during the early part of the week after recording another win of $115.6k to bring him up to $1.6 million in profits throughout April so far. This was at the popular 8-Game tables against some of the biggest names in the game with the likes of Phil Ivey and Patrick “FinndaGrind” Antonius taking part.
Other winners across the early part of the week included “KPR16” taking home $234K, “cottonseed1” securing profits of $193.5k, Antonius with a $168.9k score and Viktor “Isildur1” Blom who added $100.2k to his account.
Later Part Of The Week
Niki Jedlicka continued with his rich vein of form and took another profit of $195.6k, though on this occasion he was outshone by somebody else in the latter part of the week. This man was Dan “Jungleman12” Cates who managed to claw back losses made earlier in the week and add profit on top with a score of $393.4k.
That was achieved from two heads up matches he had against both Hac “trex313” Dang and the man we mentioned above Jedlicka. He took $188k from the former and added another $170k from the latter to make this another good one for him personally.
Jedlicka still managed to finish that day in profit despite that loss after taking to the Mixed Games tables against the likes of “Crazy Elior” and “PostFlopAction”.
With that action now in the past, the players will be looking to this weekend to again bring in some profit. We will of course keep you updated on any of the big scores that come out during the week so make sure you check in with us frequently.
