Benny Spindler
Benny "toweliestar" Spindler

German Benny “toweliestar” Spindler shined brightest in another week of high stakes poker on PokerStars.

The current EPT London champion recorded 13,839 hands and picked up $389k in profit.

Spindler may not have the same presence as players like Viktor “Isildur1” Blom and Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond in the high-stakes arena but he’s shown time and time again that he can hang with the big dogs.

Last year Spindler won $1.1 million at EPT London and then went on to win over $1 million in the high-stakes games on PokerStars to finish the year.

This year hasn’t been quite as kind to Spindler as he is down close to half a million in mid-February but he’s made a nice comeback over the last couple weeks and is now down just $50k.

Below you’ll find a complete breakdown of the top 10 winners and losers in online poker over the last week.

Top 10 Biggest Online Winners This Week

Spindler was the star during a busy week of high stakes poker but Long90110 certainly made a splash by winning $373k.

Long90110 first appeared on PokerStars last October and several members of the community alleged it was former Team Full Tilt Pro Tom Dwan. While that has been neither confirmed or denied the account has not been very successful.

The Long90110 account was down nearly $1 million in late February but thanks to this week that number has been reduced to $675k.

Meanwhile Ben “milkybarkid” Grundy continued his fantastic run in the high-stakes games with a $305k score.

Grundy is now up over $700k on PokerStars, which combined with his wins on European sites has him up over $1 million on the year. Not bad for a guy who thought it would take all of 2012 to hit that number.

Some of the other notable winners this week included Ronny “1-ronnyr3” Kaiser (+$305k), Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky (+$196k) and Jens “Jeans89” Kyllonen who snapped a losing streak with a $173,000 victory.

Top 10 Biggest Online Losers This Week

Davin “mTw-Davin” Georgi may want to get back into playing Warcraft 3 professionally if this week was any indication of his poker prowess.

The former professional gamer was absolutely pounded in the high stakes games to the tune of $359k. Fortunately for Georgi he still has nearly $400k in profit he built up earlier this year.

Ilari Sahamies continues to falter in 2012. The Finnish pro lost $276k this week and is now down an astounding $1.1 million on the year.

Sahamies wasn’t the only Finn to have a rough week as Fake Love888, the rumored account of Patrik Antonius, dropped $239k in 3,888 hands on PokerStars.

After a long absence from the game, PLO master Rui Cao returned to the high-stakes games on PokerStars this week. He may wish he stayed away as he promptly lost $219k.
