Ben 'Sauce123' Sulsky sits atop the high-stakes cash game leaderboard for March.

High stakes online cash crusher Ben ‘Sauce123’ Sulsky took to the $200/$400 Pot Limit Omaha tables to grind out a profit of $264,686 in the month of March according to the data provided by

Sulsky played 4,561 hands over a scant 35 sessions to be recognized as the most profitable cash game player of the month. After a slow start to the month, where he played very few sessions and fluctuated between being up $40,000 and then down $40,000 his graph took a nice spike between March 18-20 after Sulsky dueled with fellow online superstar ‘BERRI SWEET’. Sulsky climbed out of a small hole to be profitable over $160,000 after his session with ‘BERRI SWEET’ and then the pair battled again later in the month, which went Sulsky’s way once again. The gains have landed Sulsky back in the top 5 most profitable in 2018 thus far.

Pot Limit Hold’em specialist ‘Grazvis1’ started March in the red. The player, of which there’s not that much known about, was roughly negative $63,000 on the year but went on a considerable upswing at throughout the month to earn $245,802 when all was said and done. At his peak performance of the period he was up nearly a quarter of a million dollars for the entire year but as this writing, he’s slipped back to being profitable to about half that.

Linus ‘LLinusLLove’ Loeliger came in only few thousand behind ‘Grazvis1’ to have the third most profitable March churning out $241,490 in winnings. Loeliger, a high stakes No Limit Hold’em specialist, lost nearly $100,000 in profit in the middle of the month, only to trend back upwards after dueling with Russian beast Timofey ‘Trueteller’ Kuznetsov at the $200/$400 NLHE tables. By the end of the month Loeliger had logged 10001 hands over 147 sessions and increased his 2018 earnings to over $569,000, currently tops for 2018.

Finnish nosebleed player Sami ‘Lrslzk’ Kelopuro (aka ‘LarsLuzak’) played just 2266 hands but in that time won himself $155,595, all coming at the very end of the month. Having played very little at the beginning of March, Kelopuro found himself multi-tabling the high stakes Pot Limit Omaha tables in a heads-up battle against Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom. The pair started at the $100/$200 tables but over the course of a multi-hour session ended up pushing the limits to $200/$400. At the end of the day, Kelopuro had bested the legendary grinder Blom for nearly $50,000. By the very end of the month, he’d run it up to roughly $150,000 in profit. Of note: the first day of April he gave almost all of his profit back and slipped from profitability in 2018 to where he currently sits in a -$54,000 hole for the year.

Capping off the top 5 cash earners of March is high stakes reg ‘RaulGonzalez’ who took in $127,505 in earnings. He played the fewest sessions of the top 5 earners, logging on only 22 times, but managed a win rate of over $40 per hand, the majority of which came while he was playing the 8-Game Mix on PokerStars. This month, his victim of choice was the aforementioned Blom who, in the middle of the month, he clashed with on both the $1k/$2k 8-Game tables as well as the $1k/$2k Triple Draw felt for a $100k score . Days later, the pair went at it again with the German ‘RaulGonzalez’ again taking nearly $160k from Blom. By the middle of the month, ‘RaulGonzalez’ was up over $230,000, but variance being what it is, he ended up giving some back in 8-Game which reduced his final figure. The profitable month brings ‘RaulGonzalez’ well into the black for the year, up over $150,000 in 2018.
