Online Poker Stars tear it up at Full Tilt
The live poker world may be gearing up for the upcoming WSOPE in London, but online, it’s most definitely business as usual as several of the top online stars in the nosebleed games came to blows this month.
Sitting at the top of the cash leaderboard is Di “urindanger” Dang with $624,000 in the bank. Usual suspect Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies sits a little further back with $553,000 in winnings. His $3.5 million profit on the year makes him the second most profitable player of 2009, but some way in front is still Patrik Antonius.
Someone not currently having a good summer is Tom “durrrr” Dwan who, after going so well in his challenge with Antonius, managed somehow to drop over $600,000 in the space of August. The young American is now down some $1.26 million on the year according to some estimates. He’ll be looking to make some of that back when he hits London this month for the WSOPE and the massive heads-up challenge he has set against British player Sammy “Any Two” George.
