After losing $70k at PokerStars PLO tables yesterday Rui "PepperoniF" Cao made amends yesterday, topping the leader board with a $66k win.
Cao played exclusively at the heads up tables at both $25/$50 and $50/$100 PLO and while he made a small loss playing 2012 high stakes leader EireAbu at the lower stake he beat both Sander "Berndsen12" Berndsen and NoaTheArk at the $50/$100 tables, taking over $50k of his daily profit from Berndsen12 in an evening session lasting less than half an hour. In fact Cao only played around 130 of his c.1200 hands at the $50/$100 stakes but this more than paid dividends.
PepperoniF was not involved in any of the days biggest pots but here are his biggest two;
Both players flop well with Berndsen12 ahead on the turn - however PepperoniF catches one of his many outs on the river - $30k pot
A very unlucky turn for Berndsen12 when he had PepperoniF drawing very thin - $24k pot
The biggest pot of the day was won by Kaju85 against Ilari FIN and the second biggest in the $50/$100 PLO ring games was won by 5tgb6yhn7;
Ilari is unlucky in this AA vs AA conflict as kaju85 makes a straight on the turn with his other two cards - $75k pot
5tgb6yhn7 is lucky to river his straight in this three was all in this $51.5k pot
Ilari FIN was not only the loser of the days biggest pot but also the days biggest loser in total, dropping $84.4k on the day, his second day high on the losers list. Ilari's day had started quite brightly as he won over $50k at a table of $50/$100 PLO but things soon went sour as he took on kaju85 over two HU tables of $50/$100 and lost over $60k on each table in their 75 minute session.
In fact all the days top winners and losers came from the $50/$100 PLO tables, see below for details.
Overall results for Monday;
Winners: PepperoniF +$66k, 5tgb6yhn7 +$56k, kaju85 +$46k
Losers: Ilari FIN -84.4k, Theo J -$61.7k, Berndsen12 -$59.8k
