As yet unmasked high stakes player FaKeOrReaL made his second appearance atop the PokerStars high stakes leaderboard in the past few days yesterday as he posted an impressive $354k win yesterday as he plied his trade at the $50/$100 PLO tables, with pretty much all his winnings coming at the heads up tables. FaKeOrReal played over 6k hands yesterday across 98 tables as he spent 10 hours at the tables
FaKeOrReal took a particularly large bite out of mtvdeuem's bankroll, turning a quarter million dollar profit from his unfortunate Slovenian rival. He also saw six figure success from Odd_Oddsen (who still managed a $106k win for the day due mainly to an early morning +$177k session in the $100/$200 ring games) and also enjoyed a $75k outing against a returning Viktor "Isildur1" Blom.
In fact Blom made an all too familiar splash at the tables yesterday as he built up a c.$200k roll from just a few thousand but then proceeded to outstay his winning welcome as he enderd up losing it all to end the day a $33.6k loser. In fact, things got even worse for the crazy Swede as he dropped a further $100k after midnight server time and we can only imagine his once plump bankroll is looking a little threadbare right now. In fact, we were given an idea of his financial situation during a brief table chat with Andreas "Skjervøy" Torbergsen who offered Blom some heads up multi-table action only for Blom to reply that he was "too broke". Given that Blom is not usually one to turn down such an offer we can only imagine there was a little truth in his reply. Torbergsen didn't enjoy a great day at the tables either yesterday, losing over $130k in 2000 hands.
There were also big wins for Chung ho and Sauce123. Chung ho won $314k at FLO8 against Gus "broksi" Hansen who ended the day a $310k loser. It had been a bright start to the day for Hansen who had taken over $100k at the FLO8 tables from KPR16 early evening before losing heavily against ho and more at the $50/$100 PLO tables. Sauce123 won $234.7k at the PLO tables, over half of which he took against Isildur1 heads up at the $100/$200 tables. Sauce has now taken a quarter million dollar lead at the top of the 2012 leaderboard at the PokerStars high stakes tables with over $2.8 million profit.
As previously mentioned, Odd_Oddsen was also a six figure winner yesterday due to an early big $100/$200 PLO session. It was Oddsen who took the biggest pot of the day from this session;
Odd_Oddsen flops top set vs azn_baller3's nut flush draw/gutshot combo - the turn seals the deal for Oddsen - $113.9k pot
Here is the days second biggest hand;
Almost identical hand as Jeans89 flops a set of Queens vs Isildur1's nut flush draw. Once again the turn completes a full house in this $70k pot
The days two other six figure winners were patpatman and Terken89 who both put in +$150k days with mtvdeuem the days biggest loser, dropping a total of $352k.
