Phil Ivey Suffers $787k Setback At Full Tilt

Having reached $3.33 million in profits for 2010 at Full Tilt’s cash games, Phil Ivey suffered a huge setback after dropping a massive $786,935 at the weekend.
August had started well for the poker legend and he had notched up around $1.6 million for the month before the weekend’s action which saw him mixing it up with the likes of Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond, Sam “URnotINdanger2” Palmer, Clockwyze, Cole South and Hac “trex313” Dang.
During his two days of high stakes action, Ivey played a total of 2,832 hand at either $200/$400 Cap PLO Six-Max or Heads-up and $500/$1,000 Cap NLHE, at the end of which he saw his poker profits halved for the month.
Despite his massive loss, Ivey is still lying in second place on this year’s money board with $2,548,803 in profits, but with jungleman12 closing in fast in third spot and $2,535,924,00.
Meanwhile, Tom “durrrr” Dwan didn’t have the best weekend either, after contributing the major share of “O Fortuna PLS” $483,809 winnings at $2,000/$4,000 Limit Hold’em. Luckily for Dwan, he was able to make up the deficit in other games to break just about even and maintain his top money winner spot on the site for 2010 with $3,862.454,00 in profit after 249,181 hands played.
Patrik Antonius who was previously the biggest loser of the year and was down a staggering $3.61 million in Feb, has now managed to squarely turn things all around and is now in 10th place with $923,472 in earnings. 
On the other side of the coin, the ignoble title of biggest loser on the site for the year now goes to Brian Townsend who has stayed firmly in the red throughout the whole of 2010. Currently down $2,534,059 since he started playing at the site in early 2007, Townsend reached a peak profit in Oct 2009 when he was up around $3.4 million in total, but now is down -$340,030 all told.
Gus Hansen is currently in the third loser spot with -$1,507,370 for 2010 and a staggering -$8,430,578 down overall since 2007.
