Phil "Polarizing" Ivey finally put the brakes on the losses he's been experiencing through the first four months of 2014. From Monday to Wednesday he pulled in profits of $410,341. Tuesday was the day that shot him forward to close as the day's biggest winner when he collected $441,380 after six different sessions and 835 hands.
In Tuesday's session Ivey found a bankroll-rebuilder-patch when he faced off against Patrik "FinddaGrind" Antonius, Alexander "PostflopAction" Kostritsyn, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, and Chun Lei "samrostan" Zhou in the late morning session at the $1,500/$3,000 8-game tables picking up a profit of $235,500 after playing 188 hands. Later in the day Ivey took on Blom and picked up $152,000 from the King of Swing.
Wednesday wasn't as productive as Tuesday for Ivey but after 695 hands in four sessions, he scored an overall profit of $74,357. Ivey started the week as the second online biggest winner with an overall profit of $410,341. Ivey still has a ways to go if he's going to win back the almost $2.3 million he's down since the beginning of 2014.
American player Hac "trex313" Dang followed the same path that Ivey did. Since last Monday he is at the top of the list of the biggest winners with $513,724 to show for his efforts in online poker! Dang started the week down $44,167 from a loss but Tuesday turned it all around and he picked up winnings of $346,394 and Wednesday was the day he stacked a profit of $211,512 after 491 hands to close as the biggest winner.

The other end of being poker's biggest winner isn't pretty at times but someone is always going to fill the spot and Full Tilt Poker's Blom and Gus Hansen are right there. Those two are at the top of this week's biggest losers list — $379,680 and $312,799, respectively.
The week started out on the positive side for Blom with a $128,205 win, but that all changed when he closed as the biggest loser of the day on both Tuesday (-$257,845) and Wednesday (-250,040). As of this writing, Blom tops May's biggest losers list. He's down $849,114 in total losses.
