After a classic week of poker leading up to and over the Easter weekend, the Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo and 8-Game Mix tables contributed to the lion’s share of the action.

This Week’s Top 10 Online Poker Winners

According to highstakesdb.com Patrik “FinddaGrind” Antonius recorded the highest wins for the week with a particularly good Easter playing on the Omaha Hi/Lo tables. From Good Friday to Easter Sunday it was business as usual for Antonius; while most of Europe and the US took a break from work.

Impressively, in a single session on Easter Sunday Antonius notched a massive $466,550 profit playing 272 hands; his victims – Viktor “Isildur1” Blom and Phil “Polarizing” Ivey. He also added $48,737 in 94 hands playing 1 session of 8-Game Mix and $12,707 in 4 sessions and 163 hands on the PLO Hi/Lo tables.

Prior to Antonius’s PLO Hi/Lo wins over the Easter weekend, he had already put himself in the driving seat for a handsome take for the week playing 8-Game Mix. In 20 sessions from Monday to Thursday Antonius won $429,128 in 1,730 hands. His combined PLO Hi/Lo and 8-Game plays over the week left him with a clean $957,123 profit from 26 sessions of poker grinding 2,259 hands.

The only person to come to close to Antonius was Dan “Jungleman12” Cates. He put together a run of 37 sessions and 3,356 hands to win $512,420. Before the Easter weekend arrived, Cates had won $405,101 in 9 sessions and 1,256 hands in 8-Game. He continued his profitable run over Easter in 6 more sessions of 8-Game winning $58,906 in 816 hands. Cates also put together profitable runs over the week grinding on the NLH tables ($50,718) and the Deuce-to-Seven Triple Draw tables ($17,204).

This Week’s Top 10 Online Poker Losers

Phil “Polarizing” Ivey may still hold the record for being the most profitable online poker player in the world, but as of late his high stakes online grinds have not been producing the kind of form he showed a few years ago when arguably poker’s number one player just couldn’t lose.

Starting on Good Friday and leading up to Easter Sunday he lost $138,389 in 4 sessions and 326 hands of PLO Hi/Lo. He also lost $38,580 in 6 sessions and 224 hands of 8-Game, which before Good Friday he had already recorded a $250,259 loss in 8 sessions and 459 hands in the same style.

In that same week leading up to Good Friday Ivey was a $315,080 loser on the Omaha Hi/Lo tables from 6 sessions and 335 hands; mainly losing to his good friend and regular grinding partner Patrik “FinddaGrind” Antonius. Ivey also recorded a small loss on the NLH tables leaving him $755,042 down in 27 sessions and 1,446 hands of poker for the entire week.
