  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. In the last 24 hours, Phil Ivey (pictured), who plays on Full Tiltunder the user name Polarizing, is up $700,000, according to HighStakesDB. Most of his damage was done at the 2-7 and Eight-Game tables in heads-up sessions against fellow high-stakes pro Alexander "PostflopAction" Kostritrsyn. --- 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, "His first win of the day came from an hour-long heads-up match played late in the afternoon server time at the $1.5K/$3K Mixed Game tables with PostflopAction. Polarizing lead from the start, ending the session up $74.8K." After that, it was on to $2K/$4K 2-7 Triple Draw, where Ivey scooped another $44,300, according to the same tracking site. Then, Kostritrsyn and Ivey squared off at a $1K/$2K Mixed Game table, where HighStakesDB detailed that everything was coming up Ivey: "In a little under an hour, the 10-time WSOP bracelet winner had added another $188.4K to his bankroll. He also took down the day's biggest pot during the session," which was worth $80,000. Ivey ended up a little over $300,000 before coming back for more on Wednesday night, ending up $700,000 in the span of 24 hours. It wasn't like Ivey was going against creampuffs at the table, either. HighStakesDB said of his final session of the night, "Polarizing's next session netted him another $157K, as he took on November's biggest winner so far, Cort thecortster Kibler-Melby, again at the $2K/$4K 2-7 Triple Draw tables. The match lasted just under an hour-and-a-half and, for the first hour, the match was even. However, the last 20 minutes saw Ivey rush to a $156.9K win." The joys of high-stakes poker. HighStakesDB began following Ivey under his Polarizing screen name in the final month of 2012. Since then, he has bled $5 million total and enjoyed a profit just once over that span. He is down $1.7 million in Draw Games and $1.6 million at Eight-Game. The only variant HighStakesDB tracks that the 10-time bracelet winner has turned a profit in is Limit Omaha High-Low, where he's up $17,000. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  3. 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.

  4. The last seven days have featured some wild swings at the high-stakes online poker tables involving the likes of Cort thecortsterKibler-Melby (pictured) and Viktor Isildur1Blom. Just to give you an idea, Blom crushed fellow high-stakes player DoorBreadfor $500,000 in a single session, while Kibler-Melby ended the week up $619,000, according to HighStakesDB. Ho hum. The week began, according to the tracking site, with Kibler-Melby taking over $100,000 from Blom in a mere 40 minutes. As the site narrated, the encounter was mostly one-sided: "It was all one-way traffic, and after he'd dropped his relatively freshly minted bankroll, Isildur1 was out of there." Blom went on to face JesusLebtNOTand won over $200,000 to stop the bleeding a bit. And when we say "a bit," we mean Blom won $700,000 in a span of eight hours on Friday and Saturday. During that stretch, Blom took $202,000 from pro Seb talktloss47Ruthenberg and another half-million from DoorBread. As HighStakesDB heralded, "In total, (including the earlier $41k loss), Isildur1 took Doorbread for $490k and is up $690.6k at Full Tilt from the eight-hour session." In the ensuing days, Kibler-Melby won almost $500,000 from Blom (pictured) at Triple Draw, including $98,000 in a span of 50 minutes and 99 hands. It was a profitable week for Kibler-Melby overall, as HighStakesDB explained, "At the week's end, thecortster boasted a $479,805 profit at Full Tilt, the week's biggest win, and a $139,411 profit at PokerStars. Isildur1 ended up with a $230,360 win at Full Tilt, the week's second biggest win, and exactly even at PokerStars, with his $272k midweek win bookended with some sizable losses." Kibler-Melby has opted out of long-term tracking at HighStakesDB, but we do know that the site first started tracking him on Full Tilt four years ago and he's logged 134,000 No Limit Hold'em hands. Since July 14, he's up $479,000 in Draw Games, the only poker discipline he's played. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews? Follow PocketFives on Twitterand Like PocketFives on Facebook.
