EireAbu's dominance this year at the PokerStars high stakes tables continued yesterday with another six figure win as he added another $154k to his burgeoning bankroll. What makes the Ireland based player is that he has acheived his $3.1m winnings playing no higher than $50/$100 PLO and to date has only won one hand in excess of $100k (this $105k hand). In fact yesterday he made his money playing at $25/$50, a 30 buy in victory.
Most (around 2/3) of his profit cam from a heads up session against notorious PLO HU shark Rui "PepperoniF" Cao in a four tabled session played over around 90 minutes and 1150 hands in which EireAbu relieved the French pro of over $96k. The rest of his profit came from another $25/$50 PLO HU session, this time against Sander "Berndsen12" Berndsen as he won a further $50k in just over an hour.
It is from the match with Berndsen12 that EireAbu produced the biggest hand of the day;
EireAbu's flopped two pair outlast Berndsen's wrap draw - $62k pot
