10/31/09 – Phil Ivey's bad week at the Full Tilt high stakes cash game online tables perked up as the week closed with a profit on Pot Limit Omaha of over a million – mainly at the expense of Tom Dwan, who haemorrhaged over a million through the night.

Ivey's cards and talent enabled him to hammer his $500/$1,000 PLO opponents into submission over 627 hands of serious action, earning him some $800 000 in the process.
 
Ivey's good fortune did not extend to the NLHE and 7-Game tables, though. On 515 hands of NLHE the ice-cool American pro dropped $377 000, leaving him with a profit for the night of around $420 000 despite his earlier windfall courtesy of Dwan.
 
Dwan battled all night on the NLHE tables to recover some of his losses, but was only able to claw back around $100 000. 
 
Sympathetic online railbirds will be pleased to hear that French pro David Benyamine at last managed to end his disastrous losses this week, finishing the night up over $407 000 after playing almost 3 600 hands on the 7-Game tables. Patrik Antonius also enjoyed a profitable night, leaving with $700 000 from PLO and 7-Game to add to his already substantial 2009 bank balance.
