Renowned high stakes poker player drops $405 000

10/23/09 – Full Tilt Poker's online nosebleed tables created a haemorrhage for high stakes cash game pro David Benyamine mid-week when he lost bigtime, mainly to Gus Hansen and Ilari Sahamies, leaving the virtual 7-Game tables down by $405 000.
Benyamine has had better years, and to date is down overall by almost a million dollars.
For Hansen, who has himself been taking something of a battering recently, it was a welcome change in fortunes as he cashed in $243 000 for the night.
Finnish pro Patrik Antonius also suffered something of a reverse, going down $81 000 in the same game and compounding his misfortune with a further loss of $53 000 playing heads up $500/$1 000 No-Limit Hold'em against Tom Marchese.
