Dan Cates Biggest Online Poker Loser So Far of 2017

Dan Cates Biggest Online Poker Loser So Far of 2017Dan Cates is currently the biggest online cash game loser of 2017, having notched up $494,652 in losses at PokerStars since the beginning of the year. The 27 year-old’s poker results took a nosedive in the first two weeks of the year after plunging to almost half-a-million dollars in the red, and despite managing to claw back around $80,000 at one stage, he has subsequently shed those winnings and hovered at his nadir ever since.
To put things into perspective, Dan Cates won $10,270,847 from September 2009 to April 2015 playing as jungleman12 on Full Tilt, but from January 2011 to April 2017 has earned just $851,321 as w00ki3z on PokerStars. It’s no wonder, then, that Cates took to social media recently to decry his waning fortunes, and tweeted the following message:
“For someone who has played games all over the world and on many stakes, I have to say @PokerStars has the WORST games by FAR (toughest).”
Not far behind in losses for the year, though, is Dani “supernova9” Stern who is currently down by -$485,134 in 2017, and -$1,147,541 since February of 2014.
On the flip side, “Ravenswood13” is currently the year’s biggest winner with $792,994 in profits, representing a huge reversal of his fortunes after having been stuck $1.18 million overall on the site back in August 2016. As a result of his recent winning streak, “Ravenswood13” now at least has a $10,716 profit to show on PokerStars since he first started playing on the site in May of 2013.
Last year, Russian pro Alexander Kostritsyn topped the online poker winner’s list with $1,466,568, followed a way back by Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky ($815,517), and SamRostan ($748,018). On the other side of the coin, “bodamos” was the biggest loser with $868,252 in losses, followed by Alex “Kanu7” Millar ($635,521), and “spaise11” ($624,166). In 2015, however, Phil Ivey topped the loser’s list with a whopping $3,731,352 in losses at PokerStars, and hasn’t been seen on the site ever since.
