  1. The last seven days have been pretty lucrative for SanIker, according to HighStakesDB. He reeled in almost $400,000 at the $2,000/$4,000 Triple Draw tables on Full Tilt on Monday to push his seven-day winnings to $1 million. --- PocketFives' news coverage is brought to you by William Hill Poker, one of the largest skins on the iPoker Network. The poker room offers a generous welcome package including a 200% deposit bonus up to $2,000 and a superb VIP program. Visit William Hill today! --- According to HighStakesDB, SanIker first made waves on Monday at Triple Draw against a gauntlet of talent that included Phil "Polarizing" Ivey, Cort "thecortster" Kibler-Melby, Kagome Kagome, and Trueteller. He ended up just over $50,000 when all was said and done despite the stiff competition. Then, as the tracking site explained, "The next session SanIker took part in was even longer. He played for 12 hours and 20 minutes at table Cable from just past 2:00pm to 2:27am this morning, making a handsome $346.7k profit." All told, SanIker banked about $400,000 on Tuesday alone to continue his hot streak. SanIker calls Germany home and HighStakesDB began tracking him on the last day of April three years ago. Since then, he is up almost a half-million dollars. Here are his results in each game HighStakesDB has tracked for him: Draw Games: +$1.23 million Eight-Game: +$11,000 No Limit Hold'em: -$757,000 According to HighStakesDB, "He started his poker career playing on Euro sites, where he has done extremely well, before transitioning to the high-stakes games. He is currently studying Economics at university and playing poker part-time along with that." His biggest pot played came in October 2013 at a $400/$800 No Limit Hold'em table and was worth $264,000. On PocketFives, Germany is #13 on PocketFives' Country Poker Rankingswith a combined PLB score of its top 20 ranked members of 79,539 points. Its biggest tracked tournament score was $341,000, which came in a $2,620 event on Full Tilt in August 2008 by PocketFiver triathlon4. There are almost 2,000 PocketFivers who call Germany home and, combined, they've amassed $162 million in career tournament winnings. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  2. After a dismal first half of the year at the nosebleed tables on Full Tilt, German high-stakes pro SanIkerhas put together a huge comeback, winning just under $2 million in less than 60 days. --- PocketFives' news coverage is brought to you by Betsafe, one of the leading suppliers of online gaming products worldwide and a major sponsor of Gumball 3000. Sign up now for great bonuses, €3,000,000 guaranteed monthly, and plenty of live events! --- In his latest string of wins, the young 2-7 Triple Draw specialist booked a $400,000 session on Tuesday to catapult himself into the black and now enjoys a $150,000 profit for the year, according to HighStakesDB, as of Wednesday. During the marathon 14-hour session, SanIker battled with high-stakes regulars Trueteller, PostflopAction, Gus Hansen, Follow the Hawk, and thecortster. While a low six-figure profit is tenuous at tables where single pots can grow to over a quarter-of-a-million dollars, his overall profit for the year must provide some psychological benefit. At his lowest point, SanIker sunk down to $1.76 million in the red in July after a series of bad sessions beginning in April. In May, he took a half-million dollar hit, followed by a $700,000 loss in June. There were a few bright spots during the young grinder's downward slide; the biggest pot he dragged all year came in June, just before his huge upswing. Playing No Limit Hold'em at $300/$600 against Denoking, SanIker held 8c-2c, with his opponent holding K-Qo. SanIker flopped a flush draw and bet $5,400, which Denoking called. The turn came the 6s and the German fired another $16,200 into the pot, which Denoking raised. After calling the raise on the turn, the pair saw the 7s hit the river, completing a one-card straight for SanIker and leaving Denoking with nothing but king-high. SanIker checked and Denoking took a $75,000 shot at the pot. SanIker called the bluff and raked in a $205,000 pile of chips. Denoking soon took his revenge and more. Flopping a set with 4-4, the high-stakes pro bet the flop and turn and fired a $60,000 bet into a one-card straight board to collect a $275,000 pot. In July, the German grinder saw his fortunes improve dramatically. In just one week near the end of the month, SanIker crossed the threshold into the black after banking just over $1 million in only a few sessions. He didn't stay above water for long, though, losing $600,000 in August and then dropping another $100,000 at the start of September. Since that recent low, SanIker has been riding the wave of an $800,000 upswing. Of course with big winners come big losers. Gus Hansen (pictured) continues an epic losing streak that has now surpassed $20 million on Full Tilt. Some wonder if the Danish pro has the skills to beat today's sophisticated high-stakes pros. Even so, Hansen continues to grind and has stated that he still has money, but at some point would have to quit. Phil Ivey is recognized as the biggest winner in recorded online poker history. But this year, the poker legend has taken heavy losses at the table, losing almost $2 million. Under his new Polarizingscreen name, the 38-year-old dropped to a low of $5.3 million after a horrific three-month run in which he lost nearly $1 million a month. But the title of biggest online loser of the year goes to Chun samrostanLei Zhou, who has lost around $6 million so far. Not much is known about Lei Zhou except that he frequents the ultra-high-stakes live games in Macau and enjoys playing the biggest stakes possible. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  3. It was a good weekend to be high-stakes poker pro Sebastian Ruthenberg (pictured), who according to HighStakesDBwas up $570,000 total on Saturday and Sunday. He plays under the handle taktloss47on Full Tilt and raked in $209,000 on Saturday. The German followed that up with a $361,000 haul on Sunday. The action on Sunday happened at Full Tilt's Triple Draw tables, where Ruthenberg won $20,000 from Viktor Isildur1Blom at stakes of $500/$1,000. Then, it was on to a three-handed game that involved Phil Ivey and SanIker, the latter of whom Ruthenberg eventually took for $82,000. By the time he logged out of Full Tilt for the day, Ruthenberg was up $361,000, extending his bankroll by $570,000 for the weekend. Ruthenberg has opted out of long-term tracking on HighStakesDB, but we do know that the site began following him in 2008. Over the last seven days, he has profited $569,000 from the high-stakes tables. His largest pot played was worth $86,000 and came in March 2014 at a $1,000/$2,000 Draw table on Full Tilt. According to the Hendon Mob, Ruthenberg is #13 on the German all-time money list at $3.4 million in live tournament winnings, the bulk of which came after a victory at EPT Barcelona in 2008 for a whopping $1.9 million. He finished third in the EPT Dortmund Main Event the year before for $288,000, won a bracelet in Seven Card Stud High-Low at the WSOP in 2008, and finished 55th in the 2011 WSOP Main Event. However, he has not recorded a live tournament score since the end of 2011. Ruthenberg is a former sponsored pro of PokerStars. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  4. In October, Viktor Isildur1 Blom and Gus Hansen parted ways with Full Tilt Poker, ending the re-launched site's experiment with sponsored pros. Full Tilt officials announced at the time, "We can confirm that Full Tilt's sponsorship of Viktor Blom (pictured) and Gus Hansen has expired. This follows a year-long review of the Full Tilt brand and a decision to move away from Pro-centric advertising to focus on the experiences and stories of the vast majority of our players… We would like to wish Viktor and Gus all the best in their future endeavors." Two months later, Blom returned to Full Tilt, according to HighStakesDB, where he recorded a profit of $204,000 at the 2-7 Triple Draw tables on Monday. His first session, according to the tracking site, was against Cort "thecortster" Kibler-Melby, who donated almost $20,000 to the Swede. Then, Blom took another $24,000 off bbvisbadforme. Most of Blom's damage on Monday was done to SanIker. As HighStakesDB narrated, "Isildur1 took on SanIker starting at the $500/$1,000 limit, winning $22.7k in two hours before moving to the $1k/$2k tables, where he won $111.5k in a little under two hours, and finally graduating to the $1,500/$3,000 tables, where he added a further $57k in just ten minutes." The first time Blom was seen at Full Tilt following his departure in October was December 5, when he recorded a profit of almost $100,000. Blom shed Monday's winnings, and then some, on Tuesday before turning in a slightly profitable session on Wednesday. All told, it seems safe to say that Blom is back at Full Tilt and we can look forward to more exciting sessions down the road. In total, HighStakesDB has logged 1.1 million hands for Blom since October 2009. Over that five-year period, he has bled $3.2 million. Blom is down almost $4 million in PLO, but is up $3.5 million in Draw Games. There were rumors last month that Blom was signing with Unibet, but those have yet to pan out.
