Published on February 8th, 2010 6:25 am EST

Cole South has continued his strong start to 2010 so far this month, adding another $1 million+ to his already impressive profit total for the year.

After the first six days of February, Cole South has made $1,005,720 over a total of 2,989 tracked hands.

Add this to his impressive January profits, and South is now up over $2.5 million for the year over 25,469 tracked hands.

Gus Hansen, who had an absolutely terrible year on Full Tilt Poker in 2009, has made a total of $422,397 in February over 8,420 tracked hands. For the year, Hansen is now up a total of $2.16 million dollars over 37,504 tracked hands. After seemingly not winning a hand for all of 2009 on FTP, Gus has temporarily reversed his fortunes. It will be interesting to see how he does for the rest of the year.

Alexander "PostflopAction" Kostritsyn is currently up just under $700k in February so far, bringing his 2010 profit totals on FTP up to $1.7 million dollars.

Other players who have had a strong start to the month on Full Tilt Poker include:

"ClockWyze" +302k
"Slick Puppy" +297k
"FakeSky" +291k

Phil Ivey is the eighth most profitable player on the site so far this month (+268k), despite having only played 700 hands.


Brian Townsend has lost more money than anyone else on Full Tilt Poker to start the month of February, dropping just over $1 million over 3,715 tracked hands.

Townsend has lost a total of $1.31 million dollars in 2010, meaning that he has given back a good percentage of his 2009 profits (+$2.4 million) so far this year.

Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies has lost a total of $944k over 2,890 hands so far in February. Despite this sizable loss, "Ziigmund" is still up about $160k in 2010 on Full Tilt.

Other players who have gotten off to a slow start in 2010 include:

"rumprammer" -354k
Patrik Antonius -304k
Jani Vilmunen -255k

Patrik Antonius, after making an absolute fortune on Full Tilt in 2009, has dropped just over $2.05 million on the site to start 2010.

"Isildur1" has also re-appeared on Full Tilt Poker in February, dropping about $69k over 3,048 tracked hands.
