High Stakes Results of 2009 So Far.

Monday, 6 July 2009

Last year was a huge year for online poker that 2009 will have a hard time topping. In 2008, Guy LaLiberte donated eight figures to the nosebleed economy which resulted in several players making over $4m for the year, Phil Galfond enjoying nearly double that.

However, this year has thrown up its own surprises, none more so exciting than Tom Dwan’s fluctuating bankroll. In January, he wasn’t doing so well. In April the strongest rumours circulating had him at -$3m for the year and in May that turned to -$4m.

However, the young gun has really turned it around with almost $6m made to turn his downswing into a total profit for 2009 of a shade under $1.5m. Conversely, durrrr challenge opponent Patrik Antonius has by far enjoyed the best 2009 with almost $5m total profit. He would be on approximately $6.5m if not for some losses in the durrrr challenge and HORSE.

The full list of biggest winners and losers provided by HSDB is:

Patrik Antonius $4.749.493,12
