Online Poker: Nikolaus Jedlicka Wins $916,000

Austrian Pro Now Up $1.6 Million This Year On Full Tilt


Poker pro Nikolaus Jedlicka, who plays under “Niki Jedlicka”, didn’t start playing on Full Tilt Poker this year until this month, but over the past couple of weeks or so he is up a staggering $1.6 million, according to tracking data from HighstakesDB.

The past seven days for Jedlicka netted him $916,000.

On PokerStars, the Austrian plays under the screen name “RealAndyBeal” and is down just $220 on the site this year. Nearly all of his action apparently is on Full Tilt. These days, both online poker sites are owned by the same parent company.

Jedlicka is also know for his success on the tournament circuit. He has won nearly $800,000 playing live tournaments over his career, which dates back to 2006.

His online career can be traced back to 2007.

Jedlicka’s latest online opponents include the likes of Viktor Blom and Patrik Antonius, and he has fared well against them. Blom lost around $500,000 over the past week, which once again put him well into the hole on the year. Blom was up $2 million at one point this year.

Dan “jungleman12” Cates had an up-and-down week, but managed to pull his profits on the year back to over $1 million. He is one of online poker’s biggest all-time winners.

Gus Hansen, who has been losing and losing since Full Tilt Poker’s relaunch, has continued to take some time off this month. His lifetime losses on the software stand at $17.6 million.

Most of the action these days is in high-stakes limit games, including an eight-game mix.
