2011’s Biggest Winners & Losers in Online Poker

By Joss Wood, Rakeback.com poker News Staff Writer

Gus Hansen and Tom “durrrr” Dwan headline this year’s online cash game lists. For a change from most years, this time it’s Gus at the top and Tom at the bottom. The Great Dane Gus Hansen made a whopping $3.9 million playing poker on the internet, while internet phenomenon Tom Dwan lost just under $2.5 million.

The Top 10 Winners

  1. Gus Hansen $3,941,703
  2. Ilari FIN (Ilari Sahamies)  $2,183,832
  3. refaelamit (Rafael Amit)  $2,105,597
  4. jungleman12 (Dan Cates)  $1,952,994
  5. NoPasaran $1,875,348
  6. Isildur1(Viktor Blom) $1,472,695
  7. Matt Hawrilenko $1,440,095
  8. bixiu (Yan Chen) $1,406,194
  9. Jeans89 (Jens Kyllonen)  $1,377,019
  10. Phil Ivey $1,336,313

Gus Hansen lives in the millionaire’s playground of Monaco but is currently in Asia, hoping to participate in some high-stakes live action in Macao.

The Top 10 Losers

  1. durrrr  -$2,474,309
  2. fishosaurusREX -$1,399,950
  3. kagome kagome -$1,377,281
  4. cadillac1944 -$1,226,308
  5. Esvedra  -$1,182,259
  6. Zypherin -$1,054,638
  7. nutsinho -$1,025,356
  8. nasud 11 -$877,151
  9. UarePileous -$837,803
  10. Cole South  -$778,457

With the exception of Durrrr who we’ve already mentioned is Tom Dwan, we won’t reveal any more real names to save these players any additional embarrassment. That said, Cole South playing as “Cole South” certainly isn’t trying to be anonymous at the tables.

One of the great things about poker is that you don’t need to be well-known to make a splash on one of these lists at some point in the future. We wish all of you the best of luck at the tables in 2012, and we hope none of you make next year’s “Top 10 Losers” list!
