Phisherman36 was back in full form yesterday as he dominated the day's proceedings, winning $367k in total over 2,540 hands. He played in both the $50/$100 and $100/$200 PLO games, both heads-up and six-max, doing extremely well in both. Yesterday's performance now puts him with $1 million in winnings so far this year. He was the biggest winner by a considerable margin but did not win the biggest pot of the day, although he did win one of the two six-figure pots we saw.
We witnessed some heads-up action at the $50/$100 PLO tables between Phisherman36 and Ben "Ben86" Tollerene. As we have seen in the past, Phisherman36 is not scared to play any of the top regs heads-up, and he did extremely well yesterday against Ben86 who was in fact the day's biggest loser with his $220k loss. Most of his losses were as a result of this match in which he lost $127k in about 700 hands. They only played two tables which is a surprise for Phisherman36 as we have seen him regularly play six tables at heads-up without a problem so one would assume that they only played a couple of tables because of Ben86.
There was also a good amount of action at the $50/$100 PLO ring games (at the six-max tables). This once again featured Phisherman36 where he also did very well winning $108k including $220k at just one table. The other big winners in these games were Macau-based player patpatman who recovered well from his $240k loss from the previous day to win $197k yesterday and finish as the second biggest winner of the day. We normally see him play the highest stakes on PokerStars but he may have possibly decided to grind these stakes as very few will play him at $200/$400. Ignat "0Human0" Liviu also had a good day winning $142k grinding the $50/$100 NLHE and PLO tables. There were however a few six figure losers in these games and on the top of the list is 'high stakes fish' Zypherin (rumoured to be Guy Laliberte) who for the second day running was the second biggest loser of the day as he lost another $198k yesterday. He has now lost over $550k in the last four days. Another big loser was Chris "Genius28" Lee who lost $130k and was the biggest winner (+$340k) the day before. Gabriel "verve.oasis" Goffi put in a lot of hours at the tables yesterday but to no prevail as he lost $114k.
Vaga_Lion wins the $29k side pot and patpatman wins the $98k side pot against Genius28 in the biggest pot of the day.
We witnessed a $100/$200 PLO heads-up battle between Phisherman36 and Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies (-$131k) who played less than 300 hands across two-tables yesterday and it did not end well for Ilari. He lost most of his previous day winnings in this match as Phisherman36 won $131k from the Finnish pro. We hope to continue to see these two aggressive players battle it out again very soon.
Phisherman36's over-pair is good enough against Ilari FIN's top pair to scoop the $115k pot .
Day's biggest winners: Phisherman36 (+$367k), patpatman (+$197k), Ignat "0Human0" Liviu (+$142k)
