Patrik Antonius $365,792
Antonius, who played in just the main event in this year’s WSOP, was the top earner, despite playing just 1,861 hands. With the solid week, Antonius finally got himself out of a huge hole he had dug for himself earlier in the year. For a while, he had been the biggest loser for 2010 at Full Tilt’s tables, with about $3 million in losses. Now, he’s up about $150K for the year.
Both of those players are now ahead of Phil Ivey for the year, at third and second place, respectively. Tom Dwan, despite having a down week (-$200K) still leads the way for 2010 with $3.2 million in profits. While Antonius and Dwan are still wrapping up their 50,000-hand challenge with each other, news came out this week that jungleman12 might be the next to challenge durrrr, which would be two more heavyweights matching skills.
Here are the top 10 players, in terms of profit for the year:
Phil Ivey $2,006,394
David Oppenheim $1,212,618
The biggest loser for the week? Jared “harrington25” Bleznick, at -$384K for the week, got the booby prize. He was doing well in the absence of the heavy hitters, but took a hit this week. Right behind him was Ashton “theASHMAN103” Griffin, at -$325K.
Dwan was sixth in losses, and he was the big driver of the action for the week, as he was the only player with more than 10,000 hands played (11,482).
The top losers for the year remained largely unchanged, with Brian Townsend leading the way at -$2.5 million.
