First six months of 2011 - high stakes report  0   
"Looking at an overview of the results so far this year it’s pleasing to see Gus Hansen hold his nerve and his place at the top of the leaderboard with a solid near $4 million profit for the year – PLO somewhat surprisingly being his major source of income. Close to the $2 million mark sit Dan Cates, NoPasaran and gavz101 (although the Full Tilt gavz101 has in fact lost over $600k) with Matt Hawrilenko, bixiu, PepperoniF, Phil Ivey, Patrik Antonius and Seb86 completing the top ten winners, all accumulating well over $1 million in profit.
Interesting tidbit for all Phil lvey fans – although he only sits at number eight on the list of winners for 2011 he has (as is almost always the case when this analysis is done) the biggest per hand earnings of any player, earning nearly $80 for every one of the 17,155 hands he has contested this year.
Compare this to the year’s biggest winner Gus Hansen who has won on average less than $30 per hand you can see why Ivey is widely regarded as the world’s number one player.

It’s hard to say what will happen to the highstakes online games once the WSOP is wrapped up and the serious players get back to business. It will certainly be interesting to see where the action goes, what the US pro’s will do and how their government will deal with the demand for online poker."

Thats why Phil Ivey is my fav poker player of all time Big Smile

Really sick results. I would like to quit my daily job and start playing online poker and get like 1 million dollars in 1 year. That would be really amazing!

80$ per hand he played this year Cool
I would be happy getting 10 cents in every hand ive played so far lol not 80.
And for sure it would be great getting 1 mil in 1 year.
I could retire with that amount Smile
