Yesterday saw 5tgb6yhn7 log a $297.7k win as the $200/$400 PLO tables after two six figure sessions in the afternoon and evening. In fact 5tgb6yhn7 lost around $120k during his last sessions of the day as he was at one point over $400k to the good.
The $200/$400 PLO action brought a lot of six figure hands and as the dominant player it was 5tgb6yhn7 who was at the heart of most of them, winning three of the five biggest hands of the day, including the biggest pot;
This monster $188k hand was destined from the flop which brought both players massive hands - L0ve2playU flops top set and a flush draw against 5tgb6yhn7's flopped wrap and nut flush draw
L0ve2playU commits on a flop with outs but is behind 5tgb6yhn7's Aces and never catches up - $124.6k hand
L0ve2playU took the second biggest pot of the day;
L0ve2playU gets paid off with the nuts as 5tgb6yhn7 makes a straight on the river and is compelled to call - $138.1k pot
Monaco based 5tgb6yhn7 was by far the most dominant winner yesterday with no other players breaking the six figure mark, second up being Daniel "w00ki3z." Cates who posted an $89k day. Cates played over 4300 hands yesterday and got involved in everything from $25/$50 PLO & NLHE through $50/$100 and $100/$200 NLHE up to $200/$400 PLO, winning most of his money at $200/$400 PLO and $50/$100 NLHE playing wilhasha heads up at $50/$100 NLHE. However, over half of Cates hands were played heads up at $25/$50 PLO against . The two played around 2,200 hands, and at the end of the day honours were fairly even, with Cates walking away a small ($12k) winner in a fascinating 7 hour encounter.
With recent appearances from the likes of Gus Hansen, Brian Townsend and now Cates and more hands being played by Andreas "Skjervøy" Tobergsen it would seem that a lot of the old guard of high stakes online poker are coming out of the wood work. This combined with the increased amount of $200/$400 NLHE and PLO being played can only be good news for the railbirds.
There were no six figure losers yesterday, the biggest loser being Chris "Genius28" Lee who dropped a total of $95.3k - taking a $150k battering at the $200/$400 PLO tables, tempered a little courtesy of a +$50k win at the $100/$200 PLO tables.
