This week saw us get a new yearly leader with regards to online winnings, Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky jumping ahead of “EireAbu” to become to the top earner in 2012 online. He won $137,785 this week whilst “EireAbu” lost $146,063 which was enough to put him top for the first time this year.
That took his earnings for the year to $2,678.174, and though there is still a few months left in the year he is looking likely to be in the mix come the end of the year.
Broksi Back On Track!
Gus Hansen aka “Broksi” got back to winning ways this week after losing $407,057 the previous week, he managed to win $474,033 this week which made him the weeks biggest earner. He wasn’t streets ahead of everyone though; Ben”Ben86” Tollerene also pocketed $454,456 whilst Terje ”Terken89” Augdal took $449,799 to register very successful weeks.
The biggest loser of the week was “Patpatman” who dropped a staggering $565,732, though that was a big amount to lose he is rarely featured as a loser in our weekly shake up. One player who is, and is in fact again on the losing end is Viktor Blom.
Blom lost $563,796 last week and has followed it up with another $336,601 loss this week.
The Week To Remember For Hansen!
Hansen’s week of fortune started on Thursday 23rd August when he racked up $149,500 for the day, which came in as the second top score behind “mtvdeuem’s”$152,200. He then carried that form into Friday where he netted a payout of $164,200.
Hansen was playing a mixture of either Omaha Hi/Lo or pot limit Omaha and added to his bankroll a couple more times throughout the week to become the best earner during the week.
Blom Continues To Fall!
On the Tuesday we saw a lot of action on the PokerStars high stakes tables, mainly on one in which Terje Augdal, Ilari Sahamies and Viktor Blom were at. However, it was yet another week to forget for Blom as on this day alone he lost big cash amounts to both of his rivals.
Throughout that day he lost $347,100 to Augdal whilst he also handed Sahamies a good payout of $274,700.
