The most notable winner at Full Tilt's nosebleed tables in the past few days is Niklas "ragen70" Heinecker (picture), who was the biggest winner last year with $6,190,599 (65,577 hands over 506 sessions).

Viktor Blom is only up about $575,000!! These tables always make a fascinating read and i always wonder how muh of their own money are these poker pro's playing with.Gus Hansen never seems to win lately and it would be nice to see him come back with a big win

"At the moment, Daniel "jungleman12" Cates is the biggest winner online this year with a profit of $1,032,838 (33,428 hands over 262 sessions). In total, the 24-year-old American is up $8,438,855 (334,257 hands) playing on Full Tilt Poker!"

holy cow... and they keep on blabbling about gus and other players.. . wonder how much rakeback he got .. on top of his 8,5m winnings, lol

It is just breakeven stretch and it happens to all players though it is declining but a few good hands and big pot and he will be up to his 2million profit or more. Just wonder how his profits will go to if he has a good run of cards. Anyway it is been a while since I read about high stakes this is refreshing.

At this point Im pretty fed up with all this hype Isildur get years off and on. Hes obviously a gutsy player but Im confident that many millionare who is playing high stakes (4 real) as a hobby could produce similar stats, huge up and downswings or whatnot.They are not the sharpest tools in the shed, they just can afford to loose. As our Viktor, whos got some sweet rakeback and sponsor deal behind him, hes making money while loosing. Its not p.oker, its money laundering.

In the last years there is less and less high stakes cash games on the internet.

Well, I am not surprised by that, though.

Only sad a little.

Cates - that guy is a criminal and cheat.
Also to see 3rd highest winnings at 500k for Blom, that right there tells you that the internet era of mega bucks is well and truly over. There are no soft games now. You can see it at every single stake level now - solid solid players at the micros. Essentially it's about risk and variance now - do you have the dough and capital to take shots higher up and does variance run kindly for you.

Blom is sick !

Some high stakes players said that isildur is receiving 100K$ in a month from ftp and he's freerolling in the high stakes
Maybe that's the reason why he play so agressive and swingy game

Blom plays really crazy,

Yep, those are my thoughts about Blom as well. According to me, he is some kind of

gambler sponsored by FullTilt, the wilder he plays, the more publicity.

The high stakes online scene is unfortunately much smaller than before the black friday.

You can only very rarely see a high stakes game nowadays.

About the rakeback... do they really get rakeback when playing these values? I guess they do, perhaps it works in similar ways to the rest of the levels. So, realizing they don't just bet their money when playing for these values, having business angels behind, i guess they could get a nice life just for living out from that rakeback,huh? Ok, it wouldn't be enough for who get's used to deal with so big amounts, i see your point (even before you comment my comment Tongue).

I think they pay less % from every dollar in pot than an average micro to mid stakes player. When a famous player plays on certain poker site, he publicizes it and the poker site doesn´t want to lose such player and gives him good conditions.
