Nine-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Ivey may not have had a successful first four months of 2014, but after playing two successful days of online poker this week he’s back on track. Profits of $410,341 from games played during Monday to Wednesday have helped Ivey put his name back on top of the list of online poker’s biggest winners.
Ivey’s majority of profits came on Tuesday, when he closed as the day’s biggest winner after bringing home a $441,380 payday accumulated from 835 hands played in six different poker sessions.
More than half of his winnings on Tuesday came during a late-morning session at the $1,500/$3,000 8-game table. He took on opponents such as Viktor Blom and Patrik Antonius, taking out a total of 188 hands and a $235,500 profit.
Ivey managed to take out another $152,000 win when he went up against Blom later in the day playing heads up.
He played another winning session on Wednesday, albeit with less grand winnings. Ivey played a total of 695 hands in four sessions, taking home an overall win of $74,357. Despite the huge win, which netted him the position of second biggest online winner of the week with an overall profit of $410,341, Ivey is still down $2.3 million since the beginning of 2014.
Hac Dang took out the title of biggest online winner of the week, after taking home a total of $513,724 in winnings since last Monday. His playing trajectory was exactly the same as Ivey’s: he started the week with a loss of $44,167, before getting back on track on Tuesday with a winning total of $346,394. By Wednesday he closed the day as the biggest winner with a profit of $211,512 after 491 hands.
