It's been an up and down few weeks for mTw-DaviN who went from a $600k profit this year down to -$100k in the space of two weeks before winning close to half a million dollars this week to pus him back among the top money earners. Yesterdays $192k score certainly helped him with that.
It was a four hour session yesterday morning which paid dividends for the young German pro as he got the better of his rivals at the $100/$200 PLO tables - rivals including the usual suspects Jeans89, LuckyGump, MaiseE, milkybarkid and doncarignano.
This is DaviN's biggest hand from the sessions;
LuckyGump makes a risky bluff on the river on such a massively connected board and comes up against mTw-DaviN's top full house - $90k pot
Here are the other biggest hands of the day;
MrSweets hits a fortunate river to take down this $134k pot
MrSweets28 bets on his overpair and nutflush draw but they fall short against doncarignano's flopped set - $81k pot
MaiseE's flopped top set sees off doncaignano's gutshot/flush draw combo for this $80k pot
It was also a six figure winning day for current 2012 leading high stakes winner Jeans89 who won $119k at the $100/$200 PLO tables as he edges ever closer to the $2 million mark for the year. A $104k score for Ben "Ben86" Tollerene finally puts him in profit for the year after a two month battle to keep on an even keel. doncarignano also won $104k yesterday as he approaches $300k for the year so far.
Equally there were four six figure losers including two names we aren't used to seeing down there of late as both MaiseE (-$137k) and LuckyGump (-$197k) had poor days as did gavz101 (-$167k) and Rob "Vaga_Lion" Akery (-$135k). gavz101 in particular is having a torrid time having lost over a million dollars since this time last year and is currently over $400k down this year.
