Alex "Kanu7" Millar increased his lead at the top of the NLHE high stakes leader board for 2012 yesterday with a $377k destruction of patpatman at the $200/$400 NLHE Heads Up tables. Young English pro Millar has now made over $1.6 million in NLHE this year at PokerStars and will be a firm favourite to end the year as the biggest NLHE winner for the second successive year.
The pair played 651 yesterday in two sessions, almots 24 hours apart. The first session of around 250 hands over three tables resulted in around a $117k win for Millar. The second session of around 400 hands, again over three tables netted Millar a further $260k.
Here are Kanu7's two biggest hands from yesterdays sessions;

There were plenty of big winners yesterday and next on the list was Jeans89 who moves into 4th spot on the 2012 money winners list after making a $289k score at the PLO tables. Most of Jeans money was taken over the course of 35 sessions at the $50/$100 tables, although his biggest single table win of $103k came in the 349 hands he played at $200/$400. This session also brought him the days two biggest pots;
Bluffing against quad aces is never going to pay off for Gus "broksi" Hansen in this $105.5k pot
Jeans89 was possibly a little surprised he took this $100.7k pot after it became a three way all in
Despite losing this pot it was also a winning day for broksi who won $138k at the PLO tables mainly from the $200/$400 sessions. We already covered the source of Odd_Oddsen's $228k win over FaKeOrReaL in yesterdays report - Oddsen has now won over a million dollars since his transistion to the high stakes tables just three months ago. It was also another good day out for RaiseOnce who won $189k at Omaha Hi Lo from Chung ho in 528 hands and is on a bit of a roll now. He will be no doubt looking to erase the remainder of his current 2012 deficit as soon as possible
