Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky had yet another great day at the high stakes tables ending the day as the biggest winner with his $114k win, and the young American pro hasn't had a losing day at the tables since 18 April. This is a remarkable achievement considering that he plays the toughest opponents online and at PLO, a game which we all know has a great deal of variance. He is the biggest online winner this year, and yesterday's result takes him to a profit of $1.84 million for the year.
The action was quieter at the tables yesterday compared to earlier in the week with the vast majority of the action yet again being at the $50/$100 PLO deep ante tables. This is where Sauce123 made his money as did other well known players including Brian "$tinger 88" Hastings who won $78k to finish as the second biggest winner of the day. Hastings has been away from the PLO tables this year but has started his return on the right track and we look forward to hopefully witnessing some high stakes battles between him and other top pros such as Viktor "Isildur1" Blom and Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies. There were no other $50k+ winners at the PLO tables yesterday which highlights that the day was much quieter than we have been used to recently.
There has been a great deal of action in the past week due to a couple of players but both of whom had a poor day at the tables yesterday: !P0krparty¡ played less than 1,100 hands (which is 10% of what we have seen him play in the past) and lost $66k to end as the day's biggest loser, and Romanian player Phisherman36 played 409 hands and lost $36k. We hope to see these two battle it out at the tables very soon as they have been the catalyst of the recent action. It wasn't a good day for German pro doncarignano who lost $54k and for high stakes Finnish pro Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies who lost $43k, including the biggest pot of the day heads-up at $100/$200 against Domce (-$39k):
Ilari FIN makes a marginal call on the river and his two pair is no good against Domce's full house in this $87k pot.
We also witnessed a small amount of action at the NLHE tables yesterday from $25/$50 to $200/$400. n0d1ceb4by won $52k mostly at $25/$50 and thecortster won $50k predominantly at the $100/$200 tables. There were a few hands played heads-up at NLHE between Alex "Kanu7" Millar (+$10k) and K_0_S_T_Y_A (-$17k), with Kanu7 ending with a very small win.
Kanu7 hits a great card on the turn to beat K_0_S_T_Y_A and scoop the $83k pot.
Day's biggest winners: Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky (+$114k), Brian "$tinger 88" Hastings (+$78k), n0d1ceb4by (+$52k), thecortster (+$50k)
Day's biggest losers: !P0krparty¡ (-$66k), doncarignano (-$54k), Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies (-$43k)
