Negreanu and Haxton Biggest Losers in September

Daniel Negreanu is poker’s biggest tournament winner with a massive $32,619,168 in live career earnings, as well as a further $559,890 racked up playing tournaments online at PokerStars. The 42 year-old pro has continued his success into 2016, too, having added a further $302,452 from the live arena, while at last month’s WCOOP he managed to take down Event 71: $2,100 HORSE Championship for $61,865.
It’s fair to say that cash games, on the other hand, are not Negreanu’s forte, and going into September Negreanu was showing online losses of $361,676 according to the HSDB, with his last session lodged all the way back in May 2015. Last month, the Team PokerStars pro then decided to give online high stakes cash games another go, and after playing just 257 hands Negreanu seemed to confirm what he already suspected, and so bring a premature end to his forray back into the site’s brutal cash game scene.
While increasing his cash game losses at PokerStars to -$492,733 since February 2011, the -$131,057 Negreanu lost in September also made him the site’s second biggest loser that month, behind Issac Haxton. Known as ‘philivey2694’ on PokerStars, the pro dropped -$152,798 over 78 sessions to top the loser list in September. On the bright side, Haxton is still up $466,015 for this year, as well as in the black at PokerStars $676,567 overall since he started playing there.
On the other side of the coin, Mikael “ChaoRen160” Thuritz was last month’s biggest cash game winner with a profit of $431,419 over 92 sessions; followed in second spot by Phil ‘MrSweets28’ Galfond with $216,908 in winnings. Jason Mercier is another top pro whose tournament skills do not necessarily transfer into the cash game arena, but last month he did manage to finish 7th overall with $91,365 in profits. Despite his success, though, Mercier is still down by -$73,650 for the year so far, and by -$519,762 overall since 2011.
