Online Poker: Ben Sulsky Wins $950,000

Kyle 'KPR16' Ray Loses $392K Over Past Week


Poker pro Ben “Sauce1234” Sulsky just had one of his best weeks of the year. The New Hampshire native won $950,000 over the past seven days on Full Tilt and PokerStars, according to tracking from HighstakesDB.

It took Sulsky roughly 5,100 hands to win the massive amount. Sulsky’s winnings were the most in the online poker world. The $827,000 from unknown account “Doorbread” were second-best during the period.

Swedish poker pro Viktor “Isildur1” Blom won $535,000 over the past week on PokerStars, but he lost $807,000 over on Full Tilt. Blom played nearly 20,000 hands.

The largest pots of the week were between Blom and Doorbread, with the top one being worth $292,000. The pair were playing $250-$500 pot-limit Omaha.

Other big winners on the week include “NoelHayes” ($366,000), Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene ($253,000), “JesusLebtNOT” ($155,000) and “Deldar182” ($141,000).

Other losers from the stretch were “BigNittyBanker” ($420,000), Kyle “KPR16” Ray ($392,000), “kagome kagome” ($187,000), Ola “Odd_Oddsen” Amundsgaard ($160,000), Ilari “Ilari FIN” Sahamies ($122,000), Patrik “FinddaGrind” Antonius ($104,000) and Sam “S3 TRX” Trickett ($91,000).

Many of the game’s top pros have opted out of having their long-term results tracked (long-term is considered longer than seven days), so we can’t tell you who is up, nor who is down, the most on the year. Unofficially, Phil “Polarizing” Ivey is down the most with $1.6 million in losses, while Sulsky is leading with around $1.2 million in winnings.
