"Ben86", "LewisFriend" Big Winners As Well in October
According to the countdown on FullTiltPoker.com, Full Tilt Poker 2.0 is just 15 days away from its much anticipated relaunch.
Full Tilt Poker 1.0 hosted the biggest cash games online, and it looks like Full Tilt Poker 2.0 will offer more of the same. Full Tilt Poker has already inked Gus Hansen, Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Viktor "Isildur1" Blom to sponsorship deals, which likely means that the biggest online cash games will switch from Pokerstars back over to Full Tilt Poker.
In the meantime, the biggest online cash games continue to take place on Pokerstars' high stakes tables. The likes of "1ll|1ll|1il", "Ben86", "Sauce123" and "Isildur1" have been battling it out on Pokerstars this month and providing railbirds with plenty of entertaining action.
The biggest winner so far in October on Pokerstars? "1ll|1ll|1il", who has managed to rake in over $1.6 million in profit ($1,613,630 to be exact) over 56,385 tracked hands.
Two others players have managed to win over $500,000 on Pokerstars this month. They are:
"Ben86" took just 19,181 hands to make his small fortune, while "LewisFriend" needed just 4,302 hands to make his $640k.
Other big winners this month include:
Some familiar names have stumbled on Pokerstars so far this month.
"patpatman", who is frequently seen playing in the biggest games on Pokerstars, has dropped over a million dollars ($1,012,283) so far this month over 29,828 tracked hands.
Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies, also known as "Ziigmund" on Full Tilt Poker, has managed to lose $557,490 over just 3,302 tracked hands.
Other losers this month on Pokerstars include:
"Fake Love888", -$548,812 (note: "Fake Love888" is rumored to be Patrik Antonius)
"broksi", -$202,771 ("broksi" is rumored to be Gus Hansen)
It wouldn't be a high stakes update without a mention of Viktor "Isildur1" Blom.
Blom, who recently inked a deal to represent Full Tilt Poker, went on another one of his big runs yesterday (Sunday), winning as much as $700k before deciding to make an ill-timed move to the $200/$400 Pot Limit Omaha tables. Blom lost a great deal of this $700k before deciding to retire for the night - you can read more about his exploits by hitting the link below:
