In August, many people choose to travel and spend some good times in holidays. For online high stakes poker pros, most of them stuck to their computers. Actually, some of them hit big prizes whereas the others experience massive losses. For instance, the super active Swede poker player Viktor Blom recorded a loss of $ 750,000 since August 1. Similarly for Alexander Kostritsyn and Phil Galfond, both online poker sites’ superstars produced losses amounting to $ 533,000 and $ 475,000 respectively. Indeed August is a shadowed month for these sharks of online High Stakes poker players.
Worse, the list of those who fall into the biggest losers of the week is quite long: "kagome kagome", "SanIker" and Daniel Cates are among them though they lose less money compared to the first trio cited above. As for the biggest winners, the biggest pot goes to "Trueteller", a newcomer. He took home a huge prize of $ 710,000 in four days. "samrostan" ($ 486,000), Alex Luneau ($ 458,000) and Gus Hansen ($ 320,000) also accomplish good wins during the first week of this month!
