Yesterday saw a huge amount of high stakes action over at PokerStars with the $100/$200 and $200/$400 PLO tables going crazy, as well as plenty of $1/$2k Draw and FLO8. The main benefactors from the days action were Terje "Terken89" Augdal and Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies who bagged $347k and $274k respectively.
Although the action was rampant all day, the real money changed hands after one Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, in the midst of a heater declared to the $100/$200 table he was sat at "Anyone fancy $200/$400?" - famous last words if ever there were any!
At this point in proceedings Blom was around $500k up in the PLO games (although down six figures in FLO8 and 2-7 TD) but once the action shifted to $200/$400 he went on a supercharged crash course and lost around $400k in these games, most in the last hour and around $190k to Ilari in just 15 minutes of frantic heads up play!!
Ilari won a total of $274.7k for the day, pretty much all from Isildur1 and is now approaching $700k profit over the past week and is very close to breaking even for the year after a tumultuous year at PokerStars. Here is his biggest pot from yesterdays action;
Isildur1 misses his monster draw and Ilari scoops this $168k pot with top pair
Yesterday also brought us two +$200k pots in the PLO ring games;
Gus "broksi" Hansen rivers the nuts to take this $208k pot from patpatman who had a terrible day yesterday at PokerStars high stakes tables
Unlucky river for Isildur1 in this huge $256k pot for Terken89
After a poor start to the year Terken89 is now really hitting his stride and yesterdays result puts him up over $1 million on PokerStars this year.
The biggest winners at the FLO8 tables were GVOZDIKA55 (+$139k) and Ilari FIN (+$129k) and the biggest winner at the TD tables was capoch who took over $98k (the biggest donator there being Isildur1).
