The first month of this year is coming to a halt, and in this week’s edition of Online Railbird Report, that deals with the high-stakes cash game action on PokerStars, they show the rise of Spain’s Andres “Educa-p0ker” Artinano, who has founded himself as the early favorite on the yearly leader-board.
Artinano is up US$ 718207 in 15148 hands more than sixty-seven sessions on the year and that is more than two times as much as his next nearest competitor. Last week, they reported that Artinano won US$ 366366, and he followed that up earlier this week by snatching US$351,841 in 1626 hands over 9 sessions. This comes out to a telling average win of US$ 216.38 each hand.
In the mean time, WRUUUUM came in the 2nd spot on the weekly leader-board after snatching US$ 141,986 in 2799 hands over thirty-four sessions, while Cobus83 was close behind in 3rd, up US$ 136763 in 2432 hands spread across fifteen sessions.
On the other end of the range, Alex “Kanu7” Millar was the biggest loser of the week dropping US $329,789 in 4772 hands in 18 sessions. This keeps Millar down over US$ 400,000 on the year, which is more than twice any other player. Ronny “1-ronnyr3” Kaiser also had a tough week. He lost US$ 257,704 in 1999 hands over 38 sessions.
