Poker legend Phil Ivey, playing under his “RaiseOnce” screen name, dropped $417,602 this past week on PokerStars
The American logged 6,100 hands during that period, as per HighstakesDB’s data.
Ivey wasn’t that only big name to perform badly, as the likes of Viktor “Isildur1” Blom (-$282,040), “ClockWyze” (-$134,579) and Ilari “Ilari FIN” Sahamies (-$104,440) too didn’t have a good week.
However, “Crazy Elior” ($346,429), Ben “Ben86” Tollerene ($166,108), “BERRI SWEET” ($154,714), “CrownUpGuy” ($132,546) and “Colisea” ($122,436) were the big winners.
Even Patrik “Fake Love888” Antonius ($82,481), Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky ($66,206), Dan “w00ki3z” Cates ($52,130) and Ronny “1-ronnyr3” Kaiser ($50,744) posted profits this past week,
The 10-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner, BERRI SWEET and PokerStars account “fjutekk” were on Monday involved in one of the biggest hands during the week.
It was a $158,000 pot at $200-$400 pot-limit Omaha. BERRI SWEET got things going with a raise to $1,700 that prompted Kaiser to fold on the button. Fjutekk three-bet to $5,900 from the small blind and that was followed by a call by Ivey from the big blind.
BERRI SWEET four-bet to $23,000 and the dup called without having much behind. The flop was Qs, 10s, 2d.
Fjutekk and Ivey went all in for $24,000 and $32,000 respectively. BERRI SWEET made the call.
The turn and river were 7d and 7c respectively.
Fjutekk flopped mid-set, while Ivey had a second-nut-flush draw and gut-shot straight draw. BERRI SWEET was drawing just one ace in the deck to give him a better set.
Ivey is now down $1,250,806 and $2,381,013 on Full Tilt and PokerStars respectively in 2015.
