Weekly HSR: OMGClayAiken, Jungleman12 Have Big Weeks
NoPasaran led all players across both sites this week, making a good chunk of money by relieving XWINK from some of his bankroll at Full Tilt. The biggest stories of the week, however, were Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond, who broke out of a recent slump (No. 2, +$453K), and Daniel “jungleman12” Cates (No. 3, +$437K, who is working his way to the top of the 2011 leaderboard.
Also of note this week:
-Scott “urnotindangr” Palmer reversed his recent woes at PokerStars (he’d been victimized by Isildur1), to take the top spot at PokerStars and the fifth spot overall this week (+$359K).
-gavz101 at PokerStars continued his heater, winning nearly $300K.
-O Fortuna PLS is one of the few players who has been able to slow Gus Hansen this year, taking him for more than half a million playing 2-7 triple draw.
-Phil Ivey didn’t make the top 10, but philivey2694 at PokerStars did.
