Ivey Cruises to $327k Victory
Phil Ivey was busy crushing online player deprimiert in the high stakes games on Full Tilt Poker last night.
Ivey waged all-out war on deprimiert as the pair played 451 hands of $2,000/$4,000 Limit Hold’em.
deprimiert, who is rumored to be a German Limit specialist, has been playing a lot of high stakes Limit Hold’em against Ivey and prior to last night was actually up $261,000.
Ivey seemed to figure him out last night, however, as the Team Full Tilt pro smashed his way to a $327k win.
It was the cherry on the cake for Ivey who had the best online poker record out of anyone in August with $2.06 million earned.
Other big winners during the month of August included Dan “jungleman12” Cates, who made $1.1 million (the majority from the durrrr Challenge), Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond ($904,413), Tom “durrrr” Dwan ($737,208) and harrington25 ($729,000).
The biggest loser shouldn’t come as a huge surprise as Gus “Great Dane” Hansen had an absolutely catastrophic August with nary a winning session. By the time the final dollar had been tabulated Hansen lost $2.8 million in the last month of summer.
Also finishing well in the red were NEKOTYAN (-$946,000), David Oppenheim (-$846,374) and Patrik Antonius (-$815,339).
Thanks to Phil Ivey’s exceptional August, he’s finally passed Tom Dwan as the biggest winner in 2010. Ivey has $3.8 million in profit while Dwan, feeling the pressure from Dan “jungleman12” Cates in the durrrr Challenge 2 is down to $3.7 million.
