Daniel Cates and Alex Kostritsyn Crushing High Stakes Online Action

Noted degen "samrostan" drops 7-figures in a day.

You could almost smell the internet wires burning in the air as yesterday’s online cash games kept them busy with no less than 5 pros smashing in 6 figure profits; and there was a $1.1 million loss

The action online in the past 48 hours has been as hot as ever with big names raking in massive scores. How much exactly? The pros are dragging pots and booking sick sessions that take some of us 10 years or more to make.

Making it well past the profit mark; Daniel “Jungleman” Cates ($698,967), Alexander “PostflopAction” Kostritsyn ($657,070), Mikael “punting-peddler” Thuritz ($303,420) and Alex “Alexonmoon” Luneau ($298,091) all had a massive online day.

Hell, the action was so good even online poker’s largest loser Gus Hansen ($287,329) booked a big win.

Alex “Alexonmoon” Luneau’s victory means he is still 2014’s biggest online poker winner with a profit of $2,072,307. That figure is just pipping Dan “jungleman12” Cates to the mark.

But if there are all these winners, someone has to be losing.

That honor was bestowed on one of the sickest. Chun “samrostan” Lei Zhou who amazingly burnt out for nearly $1,150,000 in the single day while playing in 8-Game action, sharing much of his lost wealth with the aforementioned profiteers.
