terryhsu has transitioned very well from playing the highest stakes mixed games to the PLO tables and had a great weekend at the tables winning $213k playing over 5,200 hands. We witnessed three six figure pots during this time and some notable high stakes pros battle it out heads-up against each other. We also saw Viktor "Isildur1" Blom in action who played over 5,100 hands.
The biggest winner on Friday was Romanian-based player Phisherman36 who won $133k and who battled high stakes Finnish pro Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies at $100/$200 HU PLO. Ilari FIN also had a great day winning $110k and it was during their heads-up battle that we saw two six figure pots. EireAbu had a great day grinding the six-max tables at $50/$100 and won $118k. Ben "Ben86" Tollerene didn't fare well at all in the $100/$200 ring games which were not played at the deep tables thus most players buying in for the minimum and Ben86 lost a total of $112k in less than 600 hands. He was not, however, the biggest loser, and that unfortunate accomplishment went to glosik who played a staggering 7,630 hands but to no avail as he lost $147k. He played in both the $50/$100 ring games and heads-up against terryhsu, doing well in neither of them, and terryhsu won $58k this day.
Phisherman36 hits what he probably believes is a great card on the river but his full house is no good against Ilari FIN's bigger house in this $105k pot.
Phisherman36 makes a pot size bet on the turn putting Ilari FIN all-in to which he folds and thus the former player scoops the $100k pot.
The biggest loser on Friday, glosik, continued his bad run into Saturday when he was once again the biggest loser of the day as he lost another $199k. This time however the day's biggest winner was terryhsu who won $154k mostly against glosik whom he played heads-up at $50/$100 PLO. We also saw Isildur1 in action and he decided to play Phisherman36 across six tables at the same stakes. He started off very well and for most of the match was in profit, at one point being up over $80k, but as expected with the young Swede, he didn't quit whilst ahead and in fact lost all his profits and a further $30k to Phisherman36. Isildur1 lost a total of $78k that day as he later played in the ring games, splitting tables once he doubled up and it was quite evident he didn't have much money in his account. He even said to Phisherman36 that he "can't afford to play for $40-50k pots" because he has been on a "1.5m downswing". Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky had a good day at the tables winning $67k playing Phisherman36 for a short while heads-up and in the ring games, but the young online pro must be quite annoyed at not getting any decent games at the deep tables or heads-up. Isildur1 offered to play him if he would 3x raise on the button but Sauce123 declined saying "i'll play the way i want" and "u r not a fish".
Sauce123 gets very unlucky against Phisherman36 who hits an eight-outer on the river to win this $104k pot.
