Online Poker Action - Kostritsyn Wins, Blom is Back

By all accounts, last week was massive for the online poker industry. Several name players performed well, among them Mustapha Kanit, who won the Sunday Supersonic, taking down a $47.9k prize. The Supersonic is obviously a hyper-turbo event, which takes about 2 hours to run its course, making it possible for its winner to stitch together some rather incredible hourly rates. In Kanit's case, the hourly rate was $34.2k.
The cash games were extremely busy last week as well: The one leading the way profits-wise was Alexander Kostritsyn, who finished some $209k richer. He did it in a very efficient way too: he logged a little over 5k hands spread over 47 sessions. Timofey Kuznetsov did well too: he pocketed some $134k, having played 1,468 hands over 21 sessions. Another player who made the winners' circle was "Cobus83", whose profits totaled $96.3k.

Wherever there are winners, there have to be losers as well. Last week, the biggest loser was Mike Gorodinski, who dropped about $176k. Also on the losing end were Daniel Cates and wilhasha.
The big news last week was the return of Viktor Blom to the cash tables: his presence sparked quite a bit of action at the $100/$200 PLO tables, on March 3, when n0d1ceb4by finished with the biggest profit: he took down some $116.6k. Besides Blom, Ilari Sahamies saw action that day too. On Saturday, Kotritsyn finished with the biggest profit, but the biggest pot ended up in Blom's possession and it actually came from Kostritsyn himself. It tipped the scales at $69.5k. On Thursday, Blom finished his first 6-figure day in more than a month, taking down $130.8k.
