Jeans89 and socutiesf picked up the most cash in a week that saw many of the major players MIA.

With EPT London just completed and WSOPE starting this weekend, it’s likely many of the biggest names were too busy crossing the Atlantic to get in on the online action this week.

Benny Spindler, who had been dominating the high stakes games on PokerStars as toweliestar, played EPT London and won the tournament outright for £750,000.

Considering he was already up over $800k on PokerStars, it’s turning into a very good year for the young German.

That said there were still hundreds of thousands of dollars that were traded back and forth this week.

Here’s a breakdown of the top 10 movers and shakers over the last seven days of online poker.

Top 10 Biggest Winners This Week

Online player socutiesf had a huge week winning $312k, which was nearly twice as much as the next biggest winner.

Despite a few downswings, it’s been a good year for socutiesf as he’s now up $867k on the year.

Jens Kyllonen also had an impressive week winning $161k to bump his year-to-date profits up to $1.2 million on PokerStars.

Former CardRunners instructor Brian “aba20” Townsend came out of nowhere to win $117,000 this week.

It hasn’t been the best year for Townsend on PokerStars and after hitting $158k in losses in mid-August he’s finally dug himself out of the hole and is once again even.

Brian “$tinger 88” Hastings just continues to win after moving to Vancouver, Canada, to play online poker and picked up $105k in the games this week.

Of note was that Kanu7 won $80k playing No-Limit Hold’em instead of the usual Pot-Limit Omaha on PokerStars this week. It remains to be seen if there will be a revival of the game in the high stakes community or this was just a blip on the radar.

Here are the top 10 winners this week:

1. socutiesf: +$312,000
2. Jens “Jeans89” Kyllonen: +$161,000
3. Brian “aba20” Townsend: +$117,000

Top 10 Biggest Losers This Week

There simply weren’t many notable players who lost big this week.

Online player mitdadu was the week’s biggest loser but he only dropped $138k, which is relatively small compared to the $200k-$300k that is usually lost by the overall weekly loser.

Ilari Sahamies was easily the most famous loser this week as he dumped $105,000 into the high stakes games on PokerStars.

It was a marked change for Sahamies, who had been running hot on the site. Sahamies is still up $512k after being down close to a million in mid-July.

Some of the other notable losers over the last week included Zypherin, verve.oasis and GARFIELD25.
