Despite some trouble with Jungleman12, Phil Ivey was able to add $199,965 to his bankroll this weekend.

Ivey, who at this point is considered the most consistent online poker winner of all time, kicked off his weekend by playing $2,000/$4,000 Limit Hold'em against IHateJuice for about 200 hands.

The Team Full Tilt pro actually lost about $31,037 but then turned his attention to $500/$1,000 Cap No-Limit Hold'em where he was able to post a huge win against riyyc225.

riyyc225, has yet to be identified, but he did raise some eyebrows this summer when he won $404k on Full Tilt Poker in July.

It didn't help him in this match as they played 227 hands and Ivey hammered him to a $190,020 loss.

Ivey then went on to play 40 hands of full-ring $500/$1,000 Cap No-Limit Hold'em where he won $68,216 and then 106 hands of heads-up $500/$1,000 Cap No-Limit Hold'em against ginette22 where he added $47,770.

Ivey finally seemed to find his match in the last session of the evening when he took on Jungleman12 at $500/$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em.

The pair played only 27 hands but the still unknown Jungleman12 was able to extract $100k in profit from Ivey thanks to a couple huge pots. At that point Ivey decided to take his $200k in profit and call it a night.

With the win Ivey moved up to $2.6 million profit online for the year. He's still chasing Tom "durrrr" Dwan who is up $3.9 million in 2010.
