EireAbu seems to be absolutely crushing the PLO games this year especially at the $50/$100 PLO tables where he won $202k yesterday playing over 3,100 hands. He is now up over $2.2 million this year which is amazing for a player who plays $25/$50 ad $50/$100. He must have earned a lot of FPPs and VPPs during this period as well as he normally plays the most hands per day of any high stakes player.
The PLO action yesterday was primarily at the $50/$100 PLO tables which is where the day's biggest winner EireAbu did extremely well. He played in both the short-stacked games and at the deep ante tables, doing well in both especially considering the opponents he had to face. It seems that he will play anyone provided the game is three-handed or more and at no higher than $50/$100. This is the second consecutive day that he has finished as the day's biggest winner. Another big winner in the game was Macau-based player patpatman who won $171k playing at the deep ante tables.
1Il|1Il|1il| also did well winning $139k. The player's account is registered in Canada and whose identity has been speculated by many but one can assume from the way the player plays and the stakes he jumped straight into that he has had previous experience playing high stakes cash games. His preferred game seems to be PLO and although he did extremely well playing this in December 2011 winning $1.35 million in just a single month, he has not fared well at all this year and prior to yesterday was down over $900k for 2012. He did very well yesterday in the $50/$100 ring games during an evening session in which he in fact did not lose in any of the tables he played on. bernard-bb also booked a six figure win winning $107k which means that the three biggest winners from the day before yesterday were in the top four biggest winners yesterday.
The biggest loser in the PLO games was Crazyhug who lost $102k and close behind him was Zypherin (rumoured to be Guy Laliberte) who lost $100k. Zypherin is now down over $2.5 million this year. Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies played in both the PLO ring games and heads-up against EireAbu doing well in neither and in fact doing worse in heads-up in which he complained a lot in the chat. He ended the day with a $96k loss but constantly wrote that EireAbu was "a f hacker" and that "last time i play u".
There was a HUNL battle at $50/$100 between the same two players as the day before: PimpyLimpy (+$100k) and sp00led with the latter once again ending the day as the biggest loser with a $105k loss. It seems that he is still prepared to try his luck at the NL tables after his $700k score in the SCOOP.
Day's biggest winners: EireAbu (+$202k), patpatman (+$171k), 1Il|1Il|1il| (+$139k), bernard-bb (+$102k), PimpyLimpy (+$100k)
Day's biggest losers: sp00led (-$105k), Crazyhug (-$102k), Zypherin (-$100k), Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies (-$96k)
