"Isildur1" Up Over $2.7 Million in MarchPublished on March 17th, 2013 5:35 pm EST
Earlier this month, "The Professionals" (Tom Dwan, Viktor Blom and Gus Hansen) were shut out by "Team Pokerstars" (Daniel Negreanu, Isaac Haxton, Bertrand Grospellier) in a heads-up contest. The loss cost each member of "The Professionals" $50,000.
Aside from that loss, March has been a phenomenal month for Viktor "Isildur1" Blom.
According to HighStakesDB.com (link below), Viktor Blom is currently up $2,776,148 on Full Tilt Poker so far in March. This gain has come over a total of 21,308 tracked hands and, most impressively, an assortment of different games.
Blom has been looking to branch out from his specialities of No Limit Hold'em and Pot Limit Omaha, and his work seems to be paying off, as he has recently racked up big gains in games such as Omaha Hi/Lo.
There is a large drop-off between Blom and the rest of the most profitable high stakes players in March:
"Sauce1234" has managed to rebound a bit after having an uncharacteristically slow start to the year.
The list of the biggest cash game losers in March is dominated by some very recognizable names.
At the top of the list is Hac "trex313" Dang, who has recently made his return to high stakes action after a long absence. "trex313" has gotten off to a rough start in March, dropping a total of $1.08 million over 3,582 hands.
Next up on the list are three of the biggest names in poker:
Tom "durrrr" Dwan, -$1.01 million
Phil "Polarizing" Ivey, -782k
Gus Hansen, -688k
Gus Hansen has absolutely hemorrhaged money since Full Tilt Poker re-opened its doors last year, dropping an estimated $4.68 million.
