August has been kind to Ben "Ben86" Tollerene - since 6th of the month he has won close to $1.2 million at PokerStars high stakes tables, mainly at PLO. Yesterday however Ben felt like flexing his none-to-shabby NLHE skills and took on NLHE heads up specialist wilhasha at the $100/$200 tables and walked away a $140k winner.
The match was played over four tables and 646 hands with Ben86 dominating the 90 minute match with Ben86 winning all the biggets pots.
None of the pots came near to the biggest of the day but here are Ben's biggest two hands from the match;
wilhasha is putting money in dead from the turn and unfortunately spikes an ace on the river, costing him a further $18k in this $56.6k pot
wihasha makes a slightly brave raise on the turn with his gutshot/flush draw but Ben86 is ahead and scoops with a full house on the river - $45.8k pot
The days biggest hands occurred at the $100/$200 PLO tables, here are the top two;
Ilari FIN's Aces are cracked as Gus "broksi" Hansen's wrap completes on the turn - $126.5k pot
All change as Gus's Kings are cracked as Ilari flops a straight - $126k pot
The other six figure winners yesterday were M.O.P. who took $127.7k, predominantly at the 2-7 Triple Draw tables and Kanu7 who took $117.8k, beating Sauce123 heads up at the $100/$200 NLHE tables. There was also a rare six figure win for nasud 11 who won $110.5k at the PLO tables (playing from $50/$100 to $200/$400 through the day).
