October FTP High Stakes Update: Dwan on Top

The King is giving a conference - Topic - High stakes poker updateTom "durrrr" Dwan has continued his rollercoaster of a year in October, banking an estimated $1.32 million dollars over 6,263 tracked hands.

Dwan has been all over the place in 2009. He got off to a horrendous start in 2009, dropping millions of dollars to start the year. "durrrr" then battled back to breakeven status, only to drop millions of dollars once again.

With his October upswing, Dwan has battled back once again, and currently sits with a profit of $215k on Full Tilt Poker for the year. Given how much he was down earlier in the year, I'm sure that Dwan isn't too disappointed with a profit of over $200k.

Phil Ivey continues to rev up for the upcoming World Series of Poker main event final table, and is currently up nearly $1.2 million dollars on Full Tilt in October over 5,241 tracked hands. Ivey got off to a slow start in 2009 on Full Tilt Poker as well, but has since come roaring back (surprise, surprise), and is currently one of the biggest winners on the site for the year.

Richard Ashby (formerly known as "CHUFTY"), Patrik Antonius and Ashton "theASHMAN103" Griffin currently round out the list of the top five most profitable players on FTP in June. Ashby has won about $950k so far this month, while Antonius and "theASHMAN103" are both up over $500k.

Brian Townsend (+446k) has returned to the high stakes games as of late, and is doing pretty well for himself this month.


David Benyamine has posted the biggest loss so far this month, having dropped over $1.5 million dollars over 11,362 tracked hands.

Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies, after running pretty well through the first nine months of 2009, has dropped approximately $1.07 million dollars over 5,829 tracked hands so far this month. Even with this loss, "Ziigmund" is still up over $1.7 million dollars on the year.

"Slick Puppy" (-816k), David Oppenheim (-802k) and Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond (-477k) round out the list of the top five biggest losers in October on FTP.
