By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Aug 15, 2014

Alex "Alexonmoon" Luneau wins over a million in a week

The online high stakes poker tables at Full Tilt were good to French ace Alex "Alexonmoon" Luneau in the first week of August, enabling him to emerge from a series of skirmishes with top nosebleed pros as the biggest earner with over a million dollars in profits.
Reporting on the period August 1 to 8, the High Stakes Data Base noted that Luneau was the top winner after besting tough high stakes opponents such as "Jungleman" Cates, Alex "PostFlopAction" Kostritsyn, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom and Gus Hansen (who continued to rack up monumental losses.)
The big winners over the week were:
– Alex "Alexonmoon" Luneau – $1,123,445
– The mysterious German player "Trueteller" – $777,686
– Dan "jungleman12" Cates – $768,603
– Mikael "punting-peddler" Thuritz – $472,972
– "Carlooo13" – $396,474
Biggest losers over the week were:
– Viktor "Isildur1" Blom – $976,238
– Chun Lei "samrostan" Zhou – $575,149
– Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond – $475,113
– "Denoking" – $461,402
– Gus Hansen – $344,000
– "kagome kagome" – $245,092
Biggest pot of the week was a $336,916 win for Luneau playing against Hansen.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
