Ben “Sauce 123” Sulsky Wins $4m In 2012After winning almost $4 million throughout the whole of 2012, Ben “Sauce 123” Sulsky has emerged as the biggest online poker cash winner of the year.
The 25 year old cleaned up mostly at PokerStars’ high stakes cash tables where he walked away with a massive $3,581,763 profit. After Full Tilt came back online in November, the New Hampshire native then managed to add a further $367,981 to his tally.
Over the space of a few short years, the young pro has moved to the top of his profession and giving an insight into the approach which first took him there , Ben Sulsky explained: “I played $0.10/$0.25 to begin with after I deposited the second thousand bucks. I kept a bankroll management rule of having 25-30 buy-ins at the smaller stakes and then about 50+ buy-ins at $5/$10 and above. Back in the day there were like three or four fish at each table and I was winning around 8BB/100 which was quite standard at the time for the grinders.”
Other players making huge gains in 2012 included the likes of Finnish poker phenomenon Jens “Jeans89” Kyllönen ($2.4 million), US pro Ben “Ben86” Tollerene ($1.9 million), France’s Sebastien “Seb86” Sabic ($1.7 million), Germany’s Sven “ragen70” Heinecker ($1.6 million), UK’s Alexander “Kanu7” Millar ($1.5 million), USA’s Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond ($1.4 million), Switzerland’s Ronny Kaiser ($1.4 million) and the UK’s Rob “Vaga_Lion” Akery ($1.1 million).
On the other side of the coin, Gus Hansen was the biggest loser of 2012 and dropped a massive $3.1 million playing on Full Tilt over the space of two months. The Dane is now down a massive -$6,316,352 since first playing on the site back in 2007. Gus Hansen is followed quite a distance behind by patpatpanda, who lost $1,277,896 throughout the year, and then Tom “Durrr” Dwan down $987,189 after 17,826 hands played.
