Nosebleeds Report: Rui Cao and Niklas Heinecker dominate the leaderboard, Viktor Blom slam-dunked

Niklas “ragen70” Heinecker is on a tear; the German poker pro is putting on a show when he’s sitting at the poker tables and nobody seems capable of stopping him. His main opponent, Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, just got slam-dunked in the last seven days, losing almost $1 million.

Heinecker is nearing the $1 million mark for the month after yet another great week, according to HighStakesDB. He won $407k while playing 4,015 hands. His main game? You guessed it, it’s all about the 2-7 Triple Draw. He had four huge sessions on Thursday, cashing in over $570k at the end of the day.

So far in 2013, Heinecker played 238 sessions and almost 46k 2-7TD hands with outstanding results: +$2,090,373. He is the biggest 2013 online poker winner because of that with a $4,192,451 profit.

The other success story of the last seven days is Rui Cao. He is one of the newest players to join the high-stakes action on Full Tilt. He plays primarily Pot-Limit Omaha, but has been seen lately creating action at the 2-7TD tables. He had a solid Tuesday after winning $292k from Doug “WGCRider” Polk at the $100/$200 PLO tables. The pair played almost NINE hours before calling it quits. Cao totaled $420,722 between November 8 and November 15, 2013.

Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene is third in our leaderboard with $310k won since last weekend. All of those winnings came from the PLO tables. He battled Blom on Wednesday, who quickly quit the tables after losing $167k at the $500/$1,000 CAP PLO tables. Bttech86 also played with Gus Hansen and Norwegian player “no_Ola,” winning almost $180k from them.

With the latest results that include profiting from Blom’s latest misfortunes, Tollerene climbed the annual leaderboard up to second place behind Heinecker, but in front of high-stakes action player, Isildur1. Bttech86 has reached the three-million-dollar mark by playing 1,331 sessions and 116,226 hands this year. If we also add the winnings from PokerStars (he plays there under the name “Ben86”), he has a big plus $3,462,051, not so far behind ragen70 – between first and second place there is only a $730,400 gap.

The loser leaderboard of the last seven days is dominated by Isildur1. Blom is on a major downswing, losing $989,626 by playing all types of poker, from PLO and 2-7TD to Fixed-Limit Omaha 8-or-Better. Overall, the Swede lost $1,094,172 in November in 14,539 hands and moved down to third place in the 2013 winners’ leaderboard.

But the biggest loser of the month continues to be Hansen. He lost $1,212,958, although he is on some kind of run (comparing to what Hansen did so far) with three solid wins between November 8 and November 11, 2013. Most of the money was lost in the first days of the current month. Is Hansen ready for more?
