It would seem that Ilari FIN is not happy unless he is either the days biggest winner or the days biggest loser. Yesterday he opted for the more positive outcome as he romped home with a $347k.
Ilari played a three hour afternoon and four hour evening session, playing bothe $100/$200 PLO and $200/$400 PLO and managed to wipe out his previous days losses by a considerable margin and now moves to only a little over $400k down for the year (not fantastic but a lot better than the -$1.2 million he was down not so long ago).
Ilari played anyone and everyone yesterday including quite a few heads up and short handed matches against Isildur1 (who lost $61k total yesterday), RaiseOnce and L0ve2playU. He also played in regular six max games against players such as Fake Love888, Deldar182, toweliestar, Zypherin, 1-ronnyr3 and Ben86.
See below for Ilari's two biggest hands of the day;

Ilari FIN flops top set in this $200/$400 PLO hand vs RaiseOnce and gets paid off - $100k pot
Also doing extremely well out of the PLO games was the in form Ben86 who won a tasty $270k, including a $139k four hour session at table Iolanda IX in a late night session. Ben86 is now over the seven figure profit mark in PokerStars high stakes games this year with over $1.1 million in winnings.
It wasn't just the PLO highstakes tables that were running yesterday however as there was a glut of $100/$200 and $200/$400 NLHE action. It was a welcome return for Daniel "w00ki3z." Cates who won $152k yesterday, mainly at the $200/$400 NLHE tables.
It was also at the $200/$400 NLHE tables that the biggest hand of the day was played out;

The days biggest losers were yiyi01 (-$216k) and RaiseOnce (-$204k) with yiyi01 losing the lions share of his money at $200/$400 NLHE while RaiseOnce lost some in the NLHE games but the majority playing $100/$200 PLO.
