After a very good month in April, France's Alexandre "Alexonmoon" Luneau continued his great run in May by closing the month as online poker's biggest cash game winner with a profit of $573,054 in 13,544 hands played.
With total winnings of more than $1,200,000 in the last two months, the 2-7 triple draw specialist Luneau managed to consolidate his position in the year's biggest winners list, where he currently sits in fourth position behind Daniel "jungleman12" Cates, Patrik "FinddaGrind" Antonius and Niki Jedlicka.
May turned out to be a very profitable month for other nosebleed regulars "punting-peddler" and "Osama_no_Brunch," who both ended the month with a profit close to $500,000. Daniel Cates also closed the month in the black, bringing home a $243,493 profit after 4,692 hands.
Here are the top five online cash game winners from May:
|Alexandre "Alexonmoon" Luneau||13,544||$573,054|
|Daniel "jungleman12" Cates||4,692||$243,493|
Things went very differently for Full Tilt Poker Pro Viktor "Isildur1" Blom. The Swede suffered another terrible downswing that ended up costing him $1,135,819 making him the month's biggest loser.
May was the second consecutive month that Blom landed at the top of the list as he was also online's biggest loser in April, when he closed the month with an astounding $2,019,645 in losses.
There were no reasons to smile for another member of Full Tilt Poker's Pro Team, as despite some positive sessions played Denmark's Gus Hansen had another losing month.
After closing the month of April with a $127,537 loss, Hansen failed to score any substantial wins in May and closed his month with losses for $960,382.
The third biggest loser in May was Macau high-stakes regular Paul "MalACEsia" Phua who dropped more than $600,000 after 1,310 hands split in only six different sessions.
