Ivey Cruises to $476k Weekend
Full Tilt star Phil Ivey was back to his usual self this weekend, beating all challengers and winning $476k.
Ivey’s main opponent was kagome kagome (formerly IHateJuice) who he eviscerated in $3,000/$6,000 Limit Hold’em.
In 311 hands Ivey took $476k from the Limit specialist and finally made his way into the black this year.
After going on a surprising -$600k downswing in the early stages of 2011, Ivey is now up $300k.
Ivey has never recorded a losing year online and many peg him as the biggest online poker winner all-time with around $18 million in profit since websites began tracking the games.
In other high-stakes online news Full Tilt red pro Matt Hawrilenko continued his strong run on the virtual tables with $415k in profit this weekend.
Dan “jungleman12” Cates was also one of the biggest winners over the weekend winning $181k.
Viktor “Isildur1” Blom was one of the busiest players this weekend recording 6,389 hands and taking down $95,000 on PokerStars.
Blom generated most of his profit playing Ilari Sahamies, who plays as Ilari FIN on PokerStars, although he did play numerous hands against Scott “urnotindangr” Palmer.
Sahamies lost $200k on PokerStars this weekend and is now in one of the biggest downswings of his life with the losses starting to pile up on PokerStars. He was already down $172k in 2011 on Full Tilt.
Kagome Kagome was the biggest loser this weekend dropping $455k. Close behind him was fishosaurusREX who donated just over $323k.
Urindanger (-$170k) and Sauce1234 (-$117k) also recorded miserable weekends online.
