2011. January 03.
The American Daniel Cates (jungleman12) ended up at the first place of the 2010 high stakes rankings with $5,5 million in profits. The fish of the year is Brian Townsend.
Daniel ’jungleman12’ Cates appeared at Full Tilt Poker’s high stakes tables in 2009. His first season was not very successful; Brian lost $453,056 in 45,396 hands. The 21 year-old high stakes specialist, however, has improved a lot, and 2010 brought him the breakthrough: he has won the yearly high stakes crown with a massive profit of $5,503,296 (145,212 hands).

Of course, jungleman12 dominated in NLHE and became the best in this game type with $3,519,502 (105,917 hands). His other winnings came from PLO ($1,353,855 in 32,990 hands) and mixed games ($632,939 in 6305 hands).

The second place on the high stakes yearly profit list has been taken by the Norwegian high stakes player Andreas ’Skjervoy’ Tobergsen with $3,778,763 won in 43,504 hands. Skjervoy only played PLO.

A fun fact: Skjervoy’s performance was not enough to be the most profitable PLO player, as Tom ’durrrr’ Dwan won $4,446,164 in PLO, but he was not as successful in the other game types.

This way, durrrr has to deal with taking the third place on last year’s profit list ($3,609,939 in 296,725 hands). He was profitable in PLO and 7-game ($1,009,288 in 62,311 hands), but lost in FLHE ($-967,136 in 1591 hands), NLHE ($-872,376 in 91,961 hands) and Omaha H/L ($-8,000 2 hands).

The fourth place on the list is taken by Phil Ivey ($3,002,798 in 48,644 hands), next comes Di ’Urindanger’ Dang with $2,126,722 accumulated in 185,838 hands.

The ’Fish of the Year’ title would go to Brian Townsend. The American has lost $2,534,059 (108,561 hands) under his own nickname, and $1,586,536 under the nick ’sbrugby’.
