It's high time to compile last year's biggest winners and losers on Full Tilt and PokerStars. According to highstakesdb, Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky won an incredible $3,595,666 - about a million dollars more than the Finnish poker pro Jens "Jeans89" Kyllönen in second place.
This year in our Christmas Calendar we introduced a lottery where you could win MobPoints, MobDraw tickets and MobSafe shots. The way to get entry tickets to the lottery, would be if you won a prize in the Christmas Calendar that you were unable to use, for one reason or another. If you won a tournament ticket worth $215 you would get 215 tickets for the lottery if you decided to claim lottery tickets, instead of the actual prize.
The lottery would then have the following 100 prizes available:
10 x 4,000 MobPoints
10 x 3,000 MobPoints
20 x 2,000 MobPoints
10 x 2,000 MobDraw tickets
20 x 1,000 MobDraw tickets
10 x 500 MobSafe "shots"
20 x 250 MobSafe "shots"
And today, December 27th, as promised, we ran the "randomizer" and found the winners to those 100 prizes above. Basically, the more tickets you had, the bigger chances of winning.
Gus Hansen's nightmare at the poker tables online never seems to end. He has been one of the poker players who have lost the most money ever single week/month this year. Last month, for example, he ended up losing 2.8 milion dollars and took home the first spot in the list of August biggest losers online.
I must admit that he has been very unlucky as well. But still - a big poker star like Gus Hansen shouldn't lose this much money ever month. He must take a good luck at his own game and try to find out what he's doing wrong. Maybe the best thing for Gus would be to play a bit lower stakes for now? Well, somehow I doubt that he will do that, at the same time as I hope he will start winning soon again. We can not afford to lose a player like Gus Hansen from the high stakes scene.
