3 months have now passed on the new year. One must admit that the action at the high stakes tables has been over the expectations so far. This, even though Isildur1 hasn't been playing as crazy as last year. Anyhow, here are 2010's TOP 5 Winners.
1. Tom "durrrr" Dwan
Dwan was running quite good last year until he ran into Isildur1. 2010 has started in the best possible way for the american poker pro as he has won $3,970,484 in just about 130k hands.
2. Illari "Ziigmund" Sahamies
The Finnish PLO expert Ziigmund has been running extremely good this year. He was up $3.2 million not long ago, but then had a cold session against Dwan and is now up $2,059.061 after 41k hands.
3. Alex "PostflopAction" Konstritsyn
His name and surname might not be familiar to you, but you must have heard about "PostflopAction"? He plays at the highest stakes at Full Tilt poker and he's an expert at PLO and HORSE. Normal holdem is something he seems to avoid/dislike. Anyhow, "PostflopAction" is up $2,017,888 after 67,383 hand played.
Some people call "2NEKOTYAN" the Russian Isildur1. Well, they both showed up at the high stakes in the middle of 2009, however, "2NEKOTYAN" has never created any headlines because he was a losing player in the beginning. 2010 has been a much better year for him though. "2NEKOTYAN" has won $1.933,214 (37,503 hands) this year and he's for sure someone we will hear a lot more about this year.
5. Di "Urindanger" Dang
The American Di "Urindanger" Dang is on forth place in the list over poker players who have won the most money ever(the all-time-list). "Urindanger" has won $1.892,119 (96,135 hands) this year and most of the money comes from playing Pot Limit Omaha.
