Top 10 Online Losers this Week
While some lucky players were raking in money hand over fist this week, others fared far worse. Daniel “w00ki3z” Cates fared the worst of all.
Cates played 8,968 hands of high-stakes poker and finished down $376,902 over the last seven days.
A big part of those losses came by way of a six-hour, four-table heads-up battle with Alexander “Kanu7” Millar. The two high-stakes pros battled at $100/$200 NLHE with Millar relieving Cates of $185,000 when all was said and done.
Joeri “L0ve2playU” van der Sman was the second-biggest loser after a rollercoaster week that saw him lose $167k on Sunday, win $238k on Monday and proceed to drop all the way to $292,674 in losses in the final few days of the week.
