High stakes Finnish pro, Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies has not had the greatest of starts to April losing $203k yesterday to put him down over $340k in the past four days. He was the biggest loser of the day by a significant margin even though he only played less than 420 hands. The action in general was quite slow yesterday with only a very small amount of action at $100/$200 PLO and no pots were over $65k for the day. There was, however, one six figure winner.
The action yesterday was predominantly at the $25/$50 and $50/$100 PLO tables between many of the regulars at those stakes. There were some mid-six figure winners who grinded there way through during the day and the biggest winner in these games was Russian PLO specialist, Alexey "LuckyGump" Makarov, who won $103k to end as the biggest winner of the day despite not playing any $100/$200. He played over 1,500 hands at the "smaller" stakes and yesterday's win will be a good boost for him as he had lost over $300k in the past month. Another big winner at these games was Joeri "L0ve2playU" van der Sman who played a short session of just over 350 hands but still managed to book a $59k win. A notable performance that must also be mentioned is that from Irish-based player EireAbu (+$52k) who has won nearly $800k in the past month without playing any $100/$200 or higher. Ignat "0Human0" Liviu booked a modest $48k win in less than 500 hands.
Rob "Vaga_Lion" Akery (+$2k) wins this three-way cooler in the biggest pot of the day for $63k.
UK based player Kipu played many tables at a table for a long period of time as he usually does, in total playing over 2,650 hands yesterday, but unfortunately for him he lost $100k. He has now lost nearly double that since the beginning of the month. The biggest loser in these games was Ilari FIN who lost $130k at $50/$100 PLO before playing $100/$200 (in which he didn't fare so well in as well). There were no other $50k+ losers in these games.
LuckyGump wins his biggest pot of the day against Ilari FIN with the nuts on the turns to scoop the $51k pot.
The $100/$200 PLO action yesterday was less exciting than we are normally used to witnessing probably due to the regular players (e.g. Sauce123, Isildur1, V. Wahlbeck, RaiseOnce, Terken89, Jeans89, etc.) being away from the tables yesterday. Ilari still managed to lose $70k in this game even though there were no pots for over $50k which shows the nature of the action. German pro doncarignano (+$88k) was the second biggest winner of the day and won $53k of his winnings in this game. The action was mostly three-handed with Ben "Ben86" Tollerene (-$35k) who won $20k in this game but lost $55k at the smaller games.
Day's biggest winners: Alexey "LuckyGump" Makarov (+$103k), doncarignano (+$88k), Joeri "L0ve2playU" van der Sman (+$59k), EireAbu (+$52k)
