Online Poker: Alex Millar Loses $437,000
Poker Pro Down More Than $500K On 2016
British poker pro Alex “Kanu7” Millar lost roughly $430,000 over the past seven days on PokerStars, according to tracking data from HighstakesDB. It was the second week of the year in which he lost a six-figure sum.
He’s down more than $500,000 on 2016 so far, after logging nearly 11,700 hands through Friday. Millar is still a $2.7 million winner on PokerStars lifetime. Late last year, Millar said he wouldn’t continue endorsing the brand after controversial changes to the VIP rewards program.
Accounts that won the most on the week were Educa-p0ker ($435,000), WRUUUUM ($135,000), Cobus83 ($132,183), d2themfi ($118,158) and wilhasha ($94,301).
Well-known poker pros who had small wins on the week include Mikael “ChaoRen160” Thuritz, Mike “gordo16” Gorodinsky and Rafi “refaelamit” Amit.
Educa-p0ker was the big winner thanks to winning the week’s four largest hands. At $200-$400 no-limit hold’em, he or she won two pots worth $80,000 and two that were roughly $100,000.
On the flip side, Ronny “1-ronnyr3” Kaiser (-$314,000), TILTMENOT (-$202,000), donthnrmepls (-$88,000) and Ravenswood13 (-$73,000) dropped the most over the past seven days.
