Isildur1 Returns, Ben86 Dominates: Top 10 Weekly Winners/Losers
Viktor “Isildur1” Blom returned from a lengthy hiatus on PokerStars while Ben “Ben86” Tollerene straight up dominated high stakes over the last week.
Without so much as an explanation, Blom hopped right back into the games after a nearly three-month absence from PokerStars.
Poker fans speculated the Swedish prodigy was jumping ships to another poker site but it appears that for the time being Blom will continue to ply his trade on PokerStars.
He didn’t exactly light up the games in his first days back as he played nearly 3,000 hands and lost $80k.
Meanwhile Ben “Ben86” Tollerene finally dethroned Ilari “Ilari FIN” Sahamies as the biggest weekly winner with over $200k in profit.
As always be sure to check our online poker stats section for more information.
Here’s a complete breakdown of the top 10 winners and losers for the last week:
Top 10 Biggest Winners this Week
If it weren’t for the last few days Ilari Sahamies would be the overwhelming winner this week.
Sahamies jumped to a massive $300k profit at the start of the week before donating the majority back and finishing with just $67k in winnings.
Instead Ben “Ben86” Tollerene had a week to remember playing 6,399 hands and winning $210k. The U.S.-born pro now has $431k in profit this year although that’s a far cry from the $2.2 million that Sahamies has accrued in online poker.
Former professional Warcraft 3 player Davin Georgi has had some scary downswings this year but managed to put in a very respectable week taking down $205k. With the win he’s back up to $444k in profit this year.
Finally TwoPlusTwo fave Doug “WCG|Rider” Polk was busy this week and proved that he can still handle some volume by throwing down 6,753 hands to take $66k in profit.
Here’s a complete look at the top 10 biggest winners:
1. Ben “Ben86” Tollerene: +$210,000
2. Davin “mTw-DaviN” Georgi: +$205,000
3. terryhsu: +$201,000

Top 10 Biggest Losers this Week
Fake Love888’s true identity remains a mystery but his downswing over the last week couldn’t be any clearer.
Fake Love888, who has been pegged by many poker fans as Patrik Antonius, recorded 1,130 hands this week and ended up losing $239k.
After spinning up nearly $400k in winnings, Fake Love888 is now down to his last $57k of profit on PokerStars this year.
High stakes pro Peter “GARFIELD25” Chan also had a less-than-ideal week losing a total of $115k. It’s been a rough few weeks for Chan and he’s now down $450k on the year and will need one hell of a heater to get even before 2011 comes to a close.
Rui “PepperoniF” Cao also continued his recent downswing by losing a total of $110k. Over the last two weeks Cao has lost over $300k and has seen his overall 2011 profit drop down to $783,061.
Finally Viktor “Isildur1” Blom’s first week back on PokerStars didn’t exactly go as planned as he lost $80k.
