Yesterday turned out great for young Dutch Pro Sander "Berndsen12" Berndsen as he wiped the floor with the opposition and both NLHE and PLO for a huge daily score of close to $291k.
His score was doubly impressive as he played the majority of his 3256 hands at the $25/$50 stakes, the rest being at $50/$100. Most of Bernsden12's action was heads up against a range of opponents alongside a little short handed play. Bernsden12's opponents included Gozoboro, ChaoRen and Ilari FIN - although by far his biggest score came from the +2000 hands of HU NLHE against the days biggest loser, PimpyLimpy (-$184k) at the $25/$50 stakes. After yesterdays win, Berndsen12 is finally in the black for the year after a steady decline since his bit of success early in the year.
Despite winning most of his money at the lower stakes NLHE tables all of Bernsden12's biggest hands came playing at the larger $50/$100 PLO tables, where he was also the biggest winner of the day. Here are his three biggest hands from those matches;
Bernsden12's Aces hold up against Gozoboro's underpairs and flush draw - $61k pot
Action flop here as Bernsden flops a set of 9's while his opponent holds Aces in the hole and flops a gutshot and nut flush draw - Bernsden rivers quads just to make sure - $58k pot
Ilari's flopped nut flush draw is put out of its misery on the turn and Bernsden makes top full house - $54k pot
These weren't the biggest pots of the past 24 hours however, here are the biggest two from that period;
mtvdeuem puts all his hopes on a mediocre flush draw on the flop and manages to scoop the pot on the turn - $94k pot
At the $100/$200 NLHE HU tables patpatman turns a well disguised straight and gets paid off on the river by wilhasha - $90k pot
Aside from Bernsden12 nobody else really made an impression on the high stakes tables over at PokerStars yesterday with only one player making over $30k as EDWARDHOPPER turned in a +$57k performance playing $25/$50 and $50/$100 PLO in over 1200 hands. In fact EDWARDHOPPER has continued to play well through the night and is currently easily todays biggest winner so far.
Overall results for Wednesday:
Winners: Berndsen12 +$291k, EDWARDHOPPER +$57k, N Channing +$27k
Losers: PimpyLimpy -$184k, Ilari FIN -$92k, PimpyLimpy patpatman -$38k
