Andrew EireAbu Grimason in crush mode

11 July 2012

Most of the pros that play at PokerStars High Stakes are in Las Vegas playing at the WSOP 2012 or going strong in various cash tables that keep emerging in every casino on the strip. This led to a substantial decrease in traffic on the nosebleed levels and the disappearance of regular names as Alex Millar, Jens Kyllonen, Phil Galfond, Guy Laliberté or Viktor Blom.

Andrew “EireAbu” Grimason

The one that did not go to sin city and keeps punishing his rivals at the online poker tables is Andrew “EireAbu” Grimason. The Irish player has been the player that won more money at the online poker tables at PokerStars during the last week (From 2 to 8 July): 195.515$. Grimason consolidates as the greatest winner in the 2012 annual winners leader board with total earnings of 2.846.711$, a mere 600.000$ ahead of his immediate opponent, the American player Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky with 2.245.335$.

The annual graph from EireAbu shows his amazing regularity:

In the second place in this week winners ranking we find “Phisherman36”. The anonymous Romania resident won $145.566$, that allowed him to climb to the 4th position in the annual leader board with total earnings in the order of 1.270.054$ moving to 5th the absent Alex “Kanu7” Millar.
Third place belongs to “mtvdeuem” with profits of 131.528$. Behind him we find well known players as Dutch player Sander “Berndsen12” Berndsen, the Finnish “Bernard-bb” (that is said to be llkka Koskinen), that follows in third place in the annual list of players, or even the Norwegian Andreas “Skjervøy” Torbergsen that is solely dedicated to PokerStars High Stakes this year.
This is the top 20 of winners last week:
As for the players that got their “nose bleeding” we find leading the pack Rui “PepperoniF” Cao. The French player lost around $152.099 in a set of 11.659 hands. Right on his trail we find the anonymous “PimpiLimpy” that left 129.434$ at the tables, and the Romanian Liviu “0Human0” Ignat that donated 106.985$ to the “cause”.
We keep waiting the return of Viktor “Isildur1” Blom and Guy “Zypherin” Laliberté to heat up the online poker tables at PokerStars
