Yesterday was the one year anniversary of the infamous "Black Friday", when the U.S. government shut down three major online poker sites in the U.S.
Now, one year later, we can see from the results, that despite the Black Friday and lack of U.S players, there has been some huge sessions.
We saw some good action on Full Tilt Poker right after Black Friday, and when the site was closed, the action quickly moved to PokerStars.
Clearly the biggest winner since Black Friday has been Jens "Jeans89/Ingenious89" Kyllönen, who has won almost $3.8 million.
In March, Highstakesdb.com had the opportunity to interview Kyllönen. In the interview the Finn told, among other things, that at one point he had a huge amount of money stuck on Full Tilt Poker, but managed to withdraw most of it:
"At one point I had a huge amount of money stuck there that I luckily did manage to cashout, however the games were so good I left like 30K to play with, and won like 150K two days before Full Tilt Poker went down, so..", Kyllönen told.
In addition to Kyllönen, players like Ronny "1-ronnyr3" Kaiser (+$1,78m), Viktor "Isildur1" Blom (+$1,7m), Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies (+$1,6m) and Rafi "refaelamit" Amit (+$1,55m) are just few names that have managed to score seven figure wins since Black Friday.
Biggest loser since Black Friday has instead been Canadian player "Zypherin", who is rumored to be Guy Laliberte. "Zypherin" has lost a whopping $2 million after Black Friday on PokerStars.
