Online Poker: Ben 'Sauce123' Sulsky Drops $170K
Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom Makes Return To Online Tables
Roughly 1,500 hands over the past week on PokerStars resulted in $169,000 in losses for American poker pro Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky, according to tracking data from HighstakesDB. The losses were the second most in the online poker world during the stretch.
The New Hampshire native is still up $4.1 million lifetime on PokerStars, which makes that account the 10th biggest winner in the history of online poker.
An account called “Educa-p0ker” lost $206,000 over the past seven days, a week after being the biggest winner. They raked in a whopping $435,000 last week, so they did have some room to give back more than $200,000 at the nosebleed tables.
Sami “Lrslzk” Kelopuro (-$116,000), Alex “Kanu7” Millar (-$98,000), Dan “w00ki3z” Cates (-$85,000) and Isaac “philivey2694” Haxton (-$64,000) all had losing weeks as well. Millar was the biggest loser the week prior, dropping more than $430,000. He’s now down $720,000 on 2016.
On the flip side, “Trueteller” was the big winner with $329,000 in profits, while
“BERRI SWEET” ($196,000), “Crazy Elior” ($113,000), Alex “joiso” Kostritsyn ($74,000), Rafi “refaelamit” Amit ($63,000), Mike “gordo16” Gorodinsky ($51,000) and Viktor “Isildur1” Blom ($36,000) were also winners. Blom, who hasn’t played much this year, is down around $80,000 on 2016. He didn’t play a hand from Jan. 8-30.
There were eight hands over the past seven days that were worth more than $100,000. Trueteller won the largest, $195,000, with pocket kings at $200-$400 no-limit hold’em.
In that hand, Trueteller’s K K were way head of Educa-p0ker’s Q Q preflop. After $28,000 from each player was put into the middle preflop, the board soon was reading 9-7-3 when the rest of the money went in. The kings held to give Trueteller hand, which was pretty much a cooler in three-handed play. Millar was the third player in the hand.
