Sunday January 27,2013 : KYL RAY TOPS THE ONLINE HIGH STAKES POKER ACTION THIS WEEK
Just over $929,000 in only 1,283 hands is good going
After the multi-million dollar roller coaster action between Viktor Blom and Phil Galfond at the beginning of the year things on the high stakes online poker tables at Full Tilt Poker have calmed down somewhat, but the big bucks have still been changing hands between a different cast of nosebleed action characters.
Top of the High Stakes Data Base leader board this week is Kyle “KPR16” Ray, who in just seven sessions and 1,283 hands over the week managed to bank a profit of $929,088….way ahead of his nearest rival, the still-mysterious SallyWoo, who took home just over $259,000 after playing a total of 1,681 hands, and Blom's unwilling main benefactor in recent times, Ben Sulsky (almost $257,000 through 2,144 hands).
Player ‘Johnbest' will be licking his wounds after dropping over half-a-million dollars in 6,242 hands, as will the unfortunate Andrew Robl, down $357,396 on the week after playing 5,831 hands.
International ace Phil Ivey, playing on FTP as ‘Polarizing', also felt the pain, dropping $314,820 in 1,014 hands.
