At the beginning of the year, PokerCollectif you informed of major winners and the biggest losers in 2012 (poker online only). The man who was at the head of list of the biggest winners was Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky with slightly more than 3, 5 M$ profit! His best year in terms of earnings, enough to make several jealous. But, all poker players know, poker is a game with a lot of ups and down and as many tops can be pleasant, as the bottom can hurt. Ben Sulsky knows something.
At the beginning of the year 2013, Ben Sulsky has no easy life. Sauce123 lost a large part of the money raised in only a month and a half with $ 636 2,583 flew, making it - and widely - the biggest loser since early 2013! And as if that wasn't already enough wrong, yesterday, he added $ 365,000 to its losses mainly granted to Tom Dwan.
In this regard, you can book article that PokerCollectif had this week: Tom Dwan WINS 2 M$ in 48 hours on Full Tilt Poker tables.
Several reasons may explain this downswing. First, the Pot Limit Omaha is known to be a high variance game, it could be simply ca.
But it could also be the fact that opponents of Sulsky of today are no longer the same as last year. In 2012, Sulsky had won a good portion of his winnings against Gus Hansen and "patpatpanda". This year, Sulsky shares its tables with Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey, Patrik Antonius, Brian Hastings, Phil Galfond and Hac Dang.
Maybe Sulsky simply needs a little time to adjust to his new opponents.
