As expected, August has seen the return of many of the top cash game players in the world to Full Tilt Poker.
Names such as Tom "durrrr" Dwan, Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond and Patrik Antonius have been fairly active on FTP during the first 10 days of the month. Even Phil Ivey, who is rarely seen on the site, has managed to put in over 4,000 hands so far this month.
The big winner so far in August has been Tom "durrrr" Dwan, who has managed to make over $1.5 million so far this month. Dwan has been fairly active so far in August, playing over 22,000 hands in just 10 days.
Thanks to his impressive start this month, "durrrr" is now up about $4.57 million this year on Full Tilt Poker.
Phil Ivey has also made over 7 figures on FTP so far in August, banking a total of $1.15 million over just 4,149 hands.
