Phil Ivey booked a short session last night that saw him utterly dismantle Kagome Kagome for $431k.

Ivey, not known for putting in a tremendous amount of volume online, needed just 244 hands of $3,000/$6,000 Limit Hold’em to dominate Kagome Kagome.

The legendary Team Full Tilt Pro is now up over $720k in online poker this year. Ivey has never recorded a losing year online and most databases peg him as being up over $18 million all-time.

Kagome Kagome, who was formerly known as IHateJuice, has not fared well this year and is now down over $1.3 million, the most of any player on Full Tilt.

Despite Ivey’s huge session last night, the biggest winner on Full Tilt was actually the unidentified XWINK.

XWINK raked in $659k from Jared “harrington25” Bleznick, Andreas “skjervoy” Torbergsen and ShutTheClubDown.

XWINK played anything from $50/$100 to $300/$600 PLO in the 3,223 hands he recorded last night.

There is a rumor that XWINK could be the new account of the player behind the XBLINK account that dominated UB Poker last year.

The XBLINK account was owned by a 20-year-old player from Vancouver, Canada, who memorably spun $11 on UB Poker to over $1 million.

Other big winners last night included runaway ($106k), compris ($105k) and PepperoniF (+$75k). All of the three aforementioned players made their profits on PokerStars.

Outside of Kagome Kagome, harrington25 (-$299k), skjervoy (-$181k), LuckyGump (-$146k) and ShutTheClubDown (-$145k) were the players who dropped the most.
