"PostFlopAction" Up $2.2 Million
It took a few months, but Full Tilt Poker has officially reclaimed the title as the home of the world's largest online cash games.
Over the past couple of months, we've seen many big names, including the likes of Patrik Antonius, Phil Ivey and Phil Galfond, return to playing in high stakes cash games on Full Tilt Poker.
Since the start of 2013, Sergei "PostFlopAction" Kostritsyn has made the most money of any online cash game player, raking in $2,211,388 over a total of 43,255 tracked hands. Kostritsyn had a particularly good day against "patpatpanda" earlier in the week, winning over $750k during a single session.
Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond has also had a superb start to the year, winning $1,797,335 over a total of 30,966 tracked hands. Galfond is now up nearly $10 million on Full Tilt Poker over the course of his career.
Tom "durrrr" Dwan, who is a member of Full Tilt Poker's group of sponsored pros, has also gotten off to a fast start in 2013, raking in over $1.75 million over 27,344 tracked hands. Dwan has made his money playing Pot Limit Omaha, No Limit Hold'em and No Limit 2-7 Triple Draw.
Some of the other players who have also had strong starts to the year include:
Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, +986k
David Benefield, +322k
In total, six players ("PostFlopAction", "OMGClayAiken", "durrrr", "SallyWoo", "KPR16" and "Bttech86") are up over $1 million to start the year.
A total of five players have dropped over $1 million in online high stakes cash games to start the year.
At the top of the list? Ben "Sauce1234" Sulsky, who has gone on an uncharacteristic $2.34 million downswing to start the year.
Scott "mastrblastr" Seiver is next on the list of biggest losers, as he has dropped nearly $1.2 million to start the year.
Phil Ivey, now playing under the alias "Polarizing", is third on the list of biggest cash game losers in 2013 with a loss of $1,168,712 over a total of 39,748 tracked hands.
"punting-peddler" (-1.02 million) and "IReadYrSoul" (-1.006 million) round out the list of the players who have dropped at least a million dollars to start the year.
