Phil Ivey dropped $781,000 this past week to move over $1 million in online poker losses for the year so far.

Also, the Aria in Las Vegas looks to be planning a $500,000 Super High Roller event to coincide with the 2015 World Series of Poker.

Phil Ivey Down $781,000 In Seven Days

Phil Ivey may be one of the top players in live poker but in the last couple of years he's been getting crushed in online high-stakes cash games.

In the last week "Polarizing" continued his slide and dropped $781,442. He is now down $1.01 million in 2015.

The majority of those losses have been split between 8-Game and Triple Draw. He's down over $232,000 in the last week in Triple Draw and over $397,000 in 8-Game.

Ivey hasn't turned a profit in high-stakes cash games since February 2013. During that time he has dropped $6.08 million online.

Prior to Black Friday Ivey was the game's all-time online money earner with over $19.2 million.

The current all-time leader when factoring in totals from all screen names is Patrik Antonius. He has a combined $17.1 million in earnings.

Aria to Host $500,000 Super High Roller Tournament This Summer

The World Series of Poker will not have the largest buy-in tournament this summer.

According to a tweet from high-stakes player Tom Hall, the Aria will host a $500,000 Super High Roller Event sometime during the summer.

Hall revealed his invite to the event via Twitter:

Exciting times. Got my invite to the USD500,000 Aria-Cary Katz high roller in the summer. Got to try and avoid a USD1.4m bubble this time

- Tom Hall (@hongkongtom888) February 20, 2015

As the name would imply, College Loan Corporation CEO Cary Katz is organizing the private tournament at the Aria. Katz participated in the $1 million Big One for ONE DROP at the 2014 WSOP.

A date for the event was not announced by Hall, nor was a list of invited players revealed. Depending on participation, this could be the largest payout of the summer and sure to be covered by major media.
