The action at PokerStars nosebleed tables has been great whole August and September seems to be no different. One of the most active players has been everyone's favorite Swede Viktor "Isildur1" Blom. He had a fantastic winning streak in August and ended up as one of the biggest winners online. However, things have not been going so well for him in the past 2 weeks, and last week he ended up losing $349k.

But Blom is not alone when it comes to losing big. "Machado28" lost just about $440k last week and ended up grabbing the not-so-glorious first spot on the top 5 losers list. Also Phil Galfond lost quite big - $274k - 3rd place. Below is a list of last week's top 5 winners and losers.

refaelamit, $287 414
Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies, $252 491
VietRussian, $220 742
Andreas "Skjervøy" Torbergsen, $183 991
Ben "Ben86" Tollerene, $142 995

rui cao is missing from both winners/losers list, maybe he's taking a small break.
and sahamies is back with a nice win after rumors of being near-broke

Today was almost 400.000 dollars down when i checked last time, still he recovered almost all that million back yesterday but now he almost lost another 400k lol

I really think he should get another pause in order to come back in top shape, but on the other hand brian hastings hit the tables and was up 88.000 dollars.

The action is sick for sure Big Smile

I said it before. Isildur1 is a good player, but in the last time he had a lot of luck. Now I think he should be a bit more carefull about his game, and not to risk so much. Otherwise he will lose much more money.
