July was a terrible month for some of the poker world's best players, and notables such as Phil Ivey, Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Cole South all ended up on the month's top 5 losers list. Luckily one notable managed to make it to the top 5 winners list and saved some of the high stakes world's reputation. Patrik Antonius had a fantastic winning streak last month ($614,000), he played very solid poker and was never really in danger of losing.
Antonius, however, didn't manage to keep up with the unknown russian "NEKOYAN" who won $776,224. Even though I think that July was a disaster month for the poker world's finest, I must still admit that I'm really happy to see some new faces on the monthly winners list. However, I really miss the crazy high stakes games where millions of dollars changed owner every single day.
