Alex "Alexomoon" Luneau Wins $450,000 in Two Days; Viktor Blom Down $750,000 in August
The week started with some solid action at the nosebleed tables on Full Tilt, as France's Alex "Alexonmoon" Luneau took the lead of the biggest winners' list thanks to the $458,365 profit he put together between Sunday and Monday.
Amongst the most remarkable performances of the week, Macau-based Chun Lei "samrostan" Zhou and Full Tilt Professional Gus Hansen put together profits for $343,491 and $320,457, respectively.
After closing his Sunday's games as the day's biggest winner with a $350,869 profit after 1,466 poker hands split in nine different sessions, the London-based Frenchman managed to follow up his positive moment on Monday, when he has put together winnings for $107,496 after three online sessions.
Most of Luneau's action and profits came from Full Tilt's eight-game tables, where he played his games against regulars such as Zhou, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, Hansen, and Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond.
Thanks to his remarkable start of the new week, Luneau managed to overtake Daniel "Jungleman12" Cates in the lead for the 2014 biggest winners, which he currently tops with an overall online profit of $1,774,217.
Right behind Luneau, second place on this week's biggest winners list goes to player Zhou, who has put together winnings of $343,499 so far. After going through some losing sessions during the past week, he managed to get back on his feet and tear up the triple draw tables, where a positive session against "Trueteller," "Follow The Hawk," Blom, and "thecortster" allowed him to bring home a $198,000 win.
Still positive, even if perhaps on a less-impressive note, were Zhou's Monday games, as he got engaged in 732 hands split in eight different sessions for a total profit of $66,142.
The first two days of the week were also bright for Hansen, as the Danish pro got back to the nosebleeds after a short break, playing a total of 18 different sessions for an overall profit of $320,457. Although Hansen still tops the 2014 biggest losers' list with losses for $3,225,034, the encouraging start of the week showed that the "Great Dane" can still put together a winning session at the highest online levels.
On Sunday, Hansen spent almost 12 hours at the tables to close as the day's fourth biggest winner with a $123,222 profit. Then, things went even better on Tuesday, when he managed to climb to the second spot of the biggest winners' list, with winnings for $197,235.
Kostritsyn and Blom Off To a Bad Start
The week did not start nearly as good for everyone, though, especially for the likes of Russia's Alexander "PostflopAction" Kostritsyn and Sweden's Full Tilt Professional Blom, respectively first and second of the week's biggest losers' list so far.
Sunday and Monday brought Kostritsyn an overall loss of $458,365 across 12 different sessions, and things did not go any better for Blom, as the 27 sessions he played ended with a loss of $408,909. These numbers put Kostritsyn and Blom atop the month's biggest losers' rankings with losses for $533,860 and $750,468, respectively.
