Three of the biggest names in poker led the way when it came to online cash game losses in 2014.
At the top of the list? Gus Hansen, who lost an estimated $5.864 million over a total of 200,904 tracked hands. Hansen, who parted ways in Full Tilt Poker in 2014, recently returned to the site following a long absence.
Phil Ivey, who is still the biggest winner in the history of Full Tilt Poker, lost an estimated $2.37 million under his "Polarizing" account last year. 2014 was an eventful year for Ivey as he is currently involved in multiple lawsuits regarding his use of "edge sorting" in casinos.
