Jedlicka Posts Big Profit in July, Sauce123 Nears $1m for 2016
Meanwhile, Finn Ilari Sahamies is one of two pros in July who lost more than six figures.
Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky maintained his 2016 high-stakes lead while Isildur1 is still struggling to put together a profitable run.
RealAndyBeal is Only Six-Figure Winner in July
Nikolaus "RealAndyBeal" Jedlicka was online poker's only six-figure winner in July. The Austrian online poker pro won $243,127 over 123 sessions.
Most of his earnings came at 8-Game, with Jedlicka earning over $183k. He also had a solid win for the month in PLO.
Jedlicka wound up being the only pro to crack six-figures in July. That's likely because many online pros spent the first half of the month in Las Vegas and most take some time off after the WSOP.
Other notable players posting wins in July were Mike "gordo16" Gorodinsky (+$37,292), Viktor "Isildur1" Blom (+$25,010) and Alexander "Kanu7" Millar (+$17,328)
Ilari FIN Finishes July as Biggest Loser
Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies was July's biggest loser, dropping $104,860. He was unable to post a profit in anything he played in July and actually quit after the 13th.
Sahamies posted over $84k of his monthly loss in PLO and we assume he is taking a bit of a break to try again later. "Candela2005" also had a rough month and was the other online pro to lose six-figures in July, dropping $100,003.
As stated earlier, many of online poker's bigger names just didn't play that much in July.
One notable player that had a losing month online was Fedor "CrownUpGuy" Holz. Yes, the same Fedor Holz that crushed Las Vegas all summer dropped $16,311 online in July.
Holz had to lose something at some point. Of course, he probably is spending more on his post-"retirement" travel than he lost online in July.
Sulsky Top Overall Earner Through July - Isildur1 Top in Losses

Isaac "philivey2694" Haxton is also in the top 10 with $183,124 in earnings through July.
On the flip side, a pair of big names are struggling this year.
