Post-WSOP Online High Stakes Cash Game Action Increases

By Debra SaundersGoogle
Through a combination of 65 live events for players to take advantage of and the fact that both PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker do not have a license to provide online poker in the state of Nevada, it was expected that the action would decrease temporarily. This left players twiddling their thumbs as they were not even able to play at online casino using a no deposit bonus.

Cue the end of the WSOP and things are back swinging again now that players have returned to their homes to continue their online grind.

The tables are once again full of the usual suspects such as Dan “jungleman12” Cates, Phil “Polarizing” Ivey, Alex “Alexonmoon” Luneau, Gus Hansen, Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene and the ever aggressive Viktor “Isildur1” Blom.

In fact, the latter in Viktor Blom was one of the players that did not even go to the WSOP and instead decided to stick to his online game. It was a good decision too as despite struggling to find action on occasion, ended up having a profitable time and almost brought himself back into profit for the year so far.

Unfortunately for Blom, that winning streak seemed to come to an end coincided with the return of some of the best online cash players from the WSOP. Just last week he suffered losses of more than a million at a variety of poker variations such as 2-7 Triple Draw, Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo and Mixed Games.

Jungleman Falls From Top

Dan “jungleman12” Cates has not had to worry about pushing himself into profit for most of the year, simply because he has practically always been in profit for 2014. So much profit in fact that he has been top of the highest earners rankings for the year throughout the last few months.

This came to end last week however as a combination of him losing just under $100k last week and Alex “Alexonmoon” Luneau scoring profits of $432k, the two have swapped places in the rankings.

Blues Continue For Hansen

Gus Hansen would give anything to just see a profit of $1 for the year, yet he still languishes with losses of $3,422,269 despite earning a profit of $123k last week. He must have some very deep pockets as it has been reported that Hansen has now lost $14 million on Full Tilt Poker alone in his career.

Perhaps he should change his game and take a punt on a no deposit casino bonus at an online casino to get him started. Joking aside, Hansen has the ability to bounce back, which we fully expect him to do so.
