Yearly Online High Stakes Update

Winners and losers

Whilst the World Series of Poker was being played out over the last couple of months in Las Vegas, the online high stakes action did quiet down a little bit. There was still some action of note though, which is why we thought we would bring an update to which players are leading the rankings in profit for the year so far and which players are struggling at the other end of the scale with losses.

Dan “jungleman12” Cates comes out of the World Series of Poker still holding the lead with regards to profits made in 2014 at the highest stakes cash games online. He has amassed $1,355,295 profit this year so far but has both Alex “Alexonmoon” Luneau and Patrik “FinddaGrind” Atonius not all that far behind him.

There is still plenty of time for players to add to their totals for the year and move up the rankings, though for some of the players with huge losses, we feel it’s going to be tough for them to now turn things around. We will keep you updated throughout the remainder of the year as to who is performing and who isn’t.
