Weekly Online High Stakes Report

Winners and losers

Another week has now gone by at the high stakes poker tables of both PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker, so it is that time again to summarise that action to establish just who had a week to remember and conversely who had a week to forget.

The player of the week certainly has to be “Trueteller” after he managed to net himself profits of $1 million throughout the week. To see just how he managed it, check out how the week played out below.


SanIker” was the biggest earner last week and he started this one with another good day at the tables with a profit of $163.8k. Despite this, he did not finish as the days highest earner as that accolade fell to Viktor “Isildur1” Blom after his haul of $237.7k from the 2-7 Triple Draw tables against “thecortster”.


Blom kept this up going into Sunday too, this time adding a nice score of $424.1k to his bankroll. This was attained after a mammoth session of 17 hours at the tables in which he played at both the 2-7 Triple Draw and 8-Game tables. This was all despite losing out on the biggest pot of the day worth $306.5k when “punting-peddler” made a full house on the river.


Monday was all about “Follow The Hawk” who had an excellent day after walking away with profits of $498.3k. This was won against the likes of “Isildur1”, Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene, “samrostan” and “mikki696” at the $500/$1,000 Pot Limit Omaha tables. “SanIker” also had a good day after recording profits of $409.6k.


The action was again busy at the 2-7 Triple Draw tables of Full Tilt Poker, with the days highest earner being “Trueteller”. He banked a whopping $425.3k from different sessions at the $1,500/$3,000 and $2,000/$4,000 stakes tables against the likes of “Follow The Hawk”, “samrostan” and “SanIker”.


There was no real action of note on Wednesday last week but Thursday once again brought a big win for “Trueteller”. He earned himself another $425.3k from the trending 2-7 Triple Draw tables when up against opponents like “thecortster”, SanIker” and “taktloss47”. The other six figure winner from Thursday was that of “Aron0621” who will be happy with his haul of $141.3k.


The week ended with “Trueteller” once again finishing at the top of the earners list on Friday. His haul of $257.7k meant that he had now won profits of around a million in the past four days. Once again the core of action was at the 2-7 Triple Draw tables and he was up against the usual suspects in “SanIker”, “isildur1” and “samrostan”.

We will be back once again next Sunday to see if “Trueteller” could keep up his run throughout the next week.
