Continuing his early rebound, Phil Ivey posted a profit of $476,000 this past weekend against some of the top talent in the online world.
The main portion of the action came over a $3,000/$6,000 Limit Hold’em table at Full Tilt, against the pro formerly known as IHateJuice, who now goes as “kagome kagome.” After only 311 hands, Ivey snagged nearly a half a million dollars.
After logging $600,000 in losses during the early going of this year, Ivey is now showing profits in the neighborhood of $300k. He has never logged a losing year at the online tables, making him, in the minds of a great number of analysts, the best internet poker player in the game’s relatively young history. His total recorded profits are now in excess of $18 million.
Other big winners this past weekend included Dan “jungleman12” Cates ($181,000) and Viktor “Isildur1” Blom ($95,000). Major losers were fishosaurusREX (-$323,000), Urindanger (-$170,000), Sauce1234 (-$117,000), and the aforementioned kagome kagome (-$455,000).
