Online Poker: Jean-Robert Bellande Wins $121K

Poker Pro Has Solid Week At Full Tilt Tables


High-stakes poker player Jean-Robert Bellande had a solid week at the online poker tables on Full Tilt. He won $121,457, which was the third most for any one online poker account over the past seven days, according to HighstakesDB.

Bellande logged 15 unique sessions and played roughly 2,000 hands.

According to Bellande’s Twitter account he’s in Mexico right now, since you can’t play on Full Tilt in the U.S. Bellande plays under the Full Tilt screen name “Jean-Robert B”. Bellande tweeted a photo of him apparently playing an online session.

The biggest winner on the week was PokerStars account “ChaoRen160”, which is rumored to be Swedish poker pro Mikael Thuritz. The account was up $252,140 on the week.

German poker pro Cort “thecortster” Kibler-Melby had a solid week, collecting $102,342. Last month he had a rough week dropping $400,000.

On the flip side, Prahlad “Spirit Rock” Friedman was the biggest loser on the week, dropping $134,611. Alexander “joiso” Kostritsyn was the second-largest loser with $127,226 in losses.
