UK based French player and Triple Draw specialist Alex “Alexonmoon” Luneau recently claimed the top earnings spot from U.S. player Dan “jungleman12” Cates in the high stakes online cash games rankings, then cheekily disappears from the yearly standings.
It seems Alex Luneau has suffered stage fright when he became this year’s highest cash game earner online after overtaking Dan Cates; a player well-known for his NLH heads-up prowess. Just as media hype began to surround Luneau’s success, no sooner did he disappear from the rankings on highstakesdb.com leaving Cates as the top earner!
It seems Luneau has opted out of having his long term stats recorded. However, we do know as of Sunday 3rd August, Luneau had racked up a yearly profit of $1,666,720, and he has tacked on $915,891 worth of profits since then. If our calculations are correct, Luneau is cleaning up with a $2,582,611 profit so far in 2014.
Even though Dan Cates currently shows as the highest earner on highstakesdb, reality is that he is slightly lagging with a $2,284,337 profit. Nonetheless, this could all change as live reports show that Cates is currently 600k in profit over Saturday’s grinds with no sign of Luneau at the tables.
