Six-Figure Swings – High Stakes Online Returns Post-WSOP

Notable names winning and losing more than you make in a year.

No sooner than a day after the WSOP settled the November 9, the high stakes online cash games were back in action.

Online mainstays Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, Cort “thecortster” Kibler-Melby, “Trueteller”, Chun “samrostan” Lei Zhou, “Follow The Hawk”, and German pro “SanIker” were involved in a series of nosebleed $1,000/$2,000 Fixed Limit Triple Draw games and 8-Game sessions jumpstarting the online cash games back to life.

Yesterday, Lei Zhou (aka samrostan) played 2 sessions winning $508,489 , a sum which is roughly in line with taking 10th in the WSOP Main Event.

“Trueteller”'s loss to was a surprise as he had been on a heater, fighting hard to become a $417,819 winner over Monday and Tuesday’s processions; while the biggest hit to the bankroll came to Cort “thecortster” Kibler-Melby was in for a heart-stopping $620,366 loss.

This action has been a huge improvement on the latest showings coming from the online high stakes cash games, which have been overshadowed by the recent shenanigans in the WSOP.
