Four Seven-Figure Winners at Full Tilt Poker for August.

Four Seven-Figure Winners at Full Tilt Poker for August.

Saturday, 12 September 2009

Ashton Griffin, better known by his Full Tilt Poker handle theASHMAN103, has had a fantastic August – playing No-Limit Hold ‘em and Pot-Limit Omaha at stakes of $25/$50 and above, he made $2,002,950 in solid net profit for the past four weeks.

Close behind the FTOPS winner and online cash game rising star was CardRunners instructor Brian “Stinger88” Hastings. He made over $1.25m at the tables, shortly behind David Benyamine – despite ending his tenure with Full Tilt, he hasn’t had the doomswitch dropped and made over $1.3m.

The biggest overall loser of the month was Gus Hansen – he dropped over $3,000,000 at the tables over 13,000 hands. The next most stuck player was none other than Phil Ivey, who managed to wind up down $1.2m in August.

Tom Dwan was an interesting case – unsurprisingly, he put in a lot of hands; at 26,000 he was only behind $705,000 loser martonas who played over 30,000. Despite winning more than twice as much as any other player at Hold ‘em (he netted $2.1m) his PLO losses were great enough to make him a near-$500,000 loser for the month.
