High Stakes Weekly Review - The big winner was

08 August 2012

Most likely, Andrew “EireAbu” Grimason is on vacation, he was nowhere to be seen this week at PokerStars High Stakes tables. The absence of the leader of the annual gains leaderboard has led to an open "war" at the galactic level tables. And the winner of the throne has been an unexpected and unknown player, the anonymous "5tgb6yhn7" which has earned $663,701 in just 6,449 hands (about $103 per hand). Up to June had lost $343,030, but since then turned the graph around and is already positive $272,970.

In Second Place we find Joeri "L0ve2playU" Van der Sman. The Dutch player is a regular winner at high stakes. Last week won $355,410 and as result, has qualified 10th in the annual leaderboard with $82,060 accumulated.

The "bronze medal" is taken by Theo "Theo J" Jorgensen. The Dane has won $332,405 in just 5,540 hands, which makes up a big chunk of is annual profits, accumulating $432,572.

In the list of winners are other known players as Rui "PepperoniF" Cao, Jens "Jeans89" Kyllönen, Daniel "w00ki3z." Cates, Alexander "Kanu7" Millar and Andreas "Skjervøy" Torbergsen.

Despite his absence, the annual ranking of profits is headed by Irishman Andrew "EireAbu" Grimason, with $3,421,641 in benefits. Second is Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky, with a positive balance of $2,188,598. And third place is occupied by Jens "Jeans89" Kyllönen, with a balance of $1,642,728.

In the “losers” section we highlight the return of Guy "Zypherin" Laliberté at the online poker tables. The founder of Cirque du Soleil has played 5 sessions and 916 hands, and following its normal trend has lost $132,185.

The most generous player in the last seven days was Ben "Ben86" Tollerene, who has left at the tables $446,501. The American player had a spectacular March, where won nearly a million dollars. However, a few months pass by since then and his annual balance is near zero.

The week has also been detrimental to "patpatman" who lost $436,511 during the past seven days. This anonymous regular, based in Macao, began the year in a spectacular way. In late April he summed up over a million dollars in profits. However, thereafter, began a downward spiral that has not been halted and that is already into the red numbers.

Also in the list of “losers”, other regulars as Romanian Ignat "0Human0" Liviu, the German Benny "toweliestar" Spindler, Dane Gus "broksi" Hansen, the Finnish Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies or Australian David "Deldar182" Eldar .
