Since the United States has put its foot down about online gambling, there have been concerns that online poker won't be as profitable for players. If Gus Hansen's success so far this month is any indication, there's still plenty of cash online to be had.

Gus Hansen has already started off July with a bang after pulling in $145,000 playing H.O.R.S.E. and $628,000 in Pot-Limit Omaha at Full Tilt Poker according to

That gives him a big head start to perhaps matching or beating his coming out $1.4 million ahead online last month.

Other pros posting some solid winnings online already this month are John Juanda with a $108,000 Pot-Limit Omaha session and Todd Brunson with a $63,000 H.O.R.S.E. session.

David Benyamine saw some much-needed online success this month as well. For June he was down about $450,000 in Pot-Limit Omaha Hi, but he recorded a $435,000 winning session this week according to

However, he also saw a $178,000 loss in H.O.R.S.E. and a $212,000 loss in another session of Pot-Limit Omaha. Even though they're losses, Benyamine's action is still an indicator of the kind of cash floating around out there for online poker players.
