!P0krparty¡ has been the catalyst of the PLO action on PokerStars over the past couple of weeks, playing insanely long sessions and multi-tabling like crazy at stakes as high as $50/$100. He is fearless at the tables and will play just about anybody, and unlike before, he seems to be a "bit more cautious" as to the stakes he plays. He started this current epic run on 21 April and it has been a roller coaster of a journey:
The Canadian player (that's all the information we know about him) deposited the "last $10k [he has to his] name online" on 21 April hoping to work his magic at the tables. He started playing $2/$4 and $3/$6 6max PLO which is very sensible of him as we have seen him put his entire bankroll on just a couple of tables in the past. He had a poor first session, losing $1,300, and putting his bankroll at $8,700. He did, however, manage to turn it all around and by the end of his first day grinding the tables, his bankroll reached $23,300. For all those that have followed !P0krparty¡ in the past, we knew that he was not going to stop and cash out. He managed to work his roll up to $27k on 25 April but everything went downhill from there (except he won an MTT for $2k): he lost $7k at $3/$6 and a staggering $16k at just $1/$2 ante, and the rest of his bankroll at $5/$10.
Surprise surprise, he had nothing left in his account; however, due to playing thousands of hands every session, he racked up a lot of FPPs. He cashed in 100k FPPs for $1,500, and short-stacked $1/$2 but managed to lose $900 in just 10 minutes. After another 10 minutes, he has just $100 left, and is 1 tabling $0.50/$1 HU. This all happened in the same day; it is insane how he can go from playing $3/$6 with a near $30k roll to starting again with just a $1.5k roll in the same day. He was all-in in his $0.50/$1 HU PLO match (and had no FPPs bonus to bail him out so it could have possibly been the last time we saw him for a long time) - he had J865 vs AAJ8 on a T54 flop, but managed to spike a 5 on the river to double up, and that bit of fortune started his current run. He left the HU match with $400 and short-stacked $0.50/$1. He moved up to $1/$2 and made $5k and won the Hot $22 MTT for $3.5k. He played some $2/$4 and won a further $7k, ending the crazy 25 April with a bankroll of $15k.
He managed to win another $87k in the next three days taking his bankroll to six figures, at $102k. This is incredible as he was able to turn $100 into $102,000 in just four days. HighstakesDB started tracking him at the $25/$50+ tables from 28 April which is when he started playing the high stakes games. He didn't get of to the greatest starts there and in fact lost $112k by the end of the month, but as he was still playing and doing extremely well at the $5/$10 and $10/$20 games, he still "had the bankroll" to play the $25/$50 games. It is estimated that he has won approximately $300k (in his current run) in the games that we do not track (anything up to and including $10/$20).
He started May on the right track and he was the biggest winner of the day on 2 May. He played an astonishing 11.5k hands that day and was actually up close to $300k at one point in the day before going on a sizeable downswing and ending the day with a profit of $122k. !P0krparty¡ seemed to have taken a break over the next couple of days even though he did play, it wasn't for as long as we normally see or over as many tables as we are used to. He lost about $40k during this period. He went on a heater over the next few days (albeit one losing day): he won close to $220k on 6 May and topped the daily leaderboard even though he lost the biggest pot of the day as well. He lost over $100k the following day but he didn't seem to tilt at all from that defeat as he booked a near $300k win over the next couple of days.
He was able to do extremely well in a heads-up match against Romanian player Phisherman36 across four tables in an epic encounter at $25/$50. Both players were playing super super deep - Phisherman36 had over $100k on one table whereas !P0krparty¡ had $240k on one of the tables (4,800 BBs) and six figures on another. !P0krparty¡ won approximately $325k in this heads-up battle which is equal to 65 buy-ins. His biggest pot of this year occurred in this match:
!P0krparty¡ gets lucky on the turn against Phisherman36's flopped straight to scoop this $86k pot.
!P0krparty¡'s identity may still be unknown but one thing for sure is that he definitely creates a lot of action at the high stakes tables. We have witnessed him playing for a whole day at as many as 24 tables, but yet he has not managed to win a six figure pot. There are many rumours about his identity with the most common being that he is Harry Kaczka - please feel free to join the discussions on our forums about !P0krparty¡. He has not played Viktor "Isildur1" Blom or Phil "MrSweets28" Galfond in a heads-up match like he did during his last heater but we can assume that it will not be too long before we see him in an epic heads-up match against either of them as his bankroll is *currently* $781k.
He is currently still in action so we will update you on his progress in our daily report.
