After suffering a knock back and a $110k loss Sunday Ta-Chih 'socutiesf' Geeng came back strong yesterday winning $160k at the $50/$100 PLO tables at PokerStars. His winnings came in two bursts, taking around $80k in the early hours of yesterday and a further $80k during some early evening sessions of six max PLO.
It was also a good day for Wladimir 'insyder19' Taschner who won $110k playing $25/$50 and $50/$100 PLO and yet again Rafi "refealamit" Amit took a six figure score, putting some distance between himself and the rest of the pack as the leading PokerStars money winner for 2011 as he is now almost $1.9 million to the good.
With other familiar names taking decent wins in the $50/$100 sessions including Jeans89, PepperoniF and takechip inevitably the bigget losers also came from these sessions with mitdadu being the single biggest loser showing a negative $138k result - and all this from just 127 hands at one table. The only other player to lose over $100k yesterday was terryhsu who lost $115k in the $50/$100 PLO games.
