Longerpig Explodes: Top 10 Weekly Online Winners/Losers
Unidentified online poker player longerpig had his way with the high-stakes games on PokerStars this week winning over $700k.
Longerpig, who is registered from the U.K., got a serious boost from playing an extended heads-up session against Kaju85 where he ended up winning over $400k.
Some of the other movers and shakers in high stakes this week included EireAbu, Neil Channing, WCG|Rider, Jens “Jeans89” Kyllonen, Skjervoy and Ilari “Ilari FIN” Sahamies.
Check below for a complete look at the top 10 winners and losers from the last week of online poker.
Top 10 Online Winners this Week
For the second straight week we had one player completely distance himself from the field with longerpig making more than three times as much as his closest competitor.
Longerpig has been on fire since first appearing on the high-stakes scene in March and is now up nearly $1 million in just over three months of play.
EireAbu was a distant second in profit this week with $220,000.
Of course there’s a good chance EireAbu doesn’t mind being second in this week’s earnings as he’s number one on the yearly leaderboard with over $3.3 million in profit.
Interestingly there were a couple faces we don’t see all that often in the high stakes top 10 with noted English pro Neil Channing showing some online cash-game chops by taking down $135k while U.S. refugee Doug “WCG|Rider” Polk took down $103k.
The usual suspects were also in play, however, as Jens “Jeans89” Kyllonen won nearly $100k as did Terje “Terken” Augdal.
Here’s a complete look at the top 10 biggest winners according to hsdb.com this week:
1. longerpig: +$735,000
2. EireAbu: +$220,000
3. Sat1337en: +$155,0000

Top 10 Online Losers this Week
Online player Kaju85 made the mistake of playing longerpig heads-up $50/$100 Pot-Limit Omaha this week and paid dearly losing over $400k.
To make matters worse, Kaju85 has not had a particularly great year and is now down over half a million in 2012.
The second biggest loser last week was famed Chinese-born French player Rui “PepperoniF” Cao. Cao has not been particularly active this year but logged in long enough to lose $168,000 this week. He’s now down over $400k in 2012.
Meanwhile Ilari “Ilari FIN” Sahamies followed up a strong previous week by losing $116k over the last seven days.
Not exactly a great outcome for the swingy Finnish pro, especially considering he’s still trying to get out from over $260k in losses this year.
Phisherman36 continued his nosedive to the bottom of the online poker charts with a $97k loss this week. The previous week Phisherman36 lost $775k so he’s getting dangerously close to losing one million in one month.

1. Kaju85: -$428,000
2. PepperoniF: -$168,000
3. Skjervoy: -$151,000
