After a fantastic August where he won over $1.2 million, Ben "Ben86" Tollerene is continuing his good run into September as another win yesterday of $98k put him at +$416k for the month, 5th on the current monthly high stakes leader board.
With no six figure winners yesterday it would seem to have been a reasonably slow day at PokerStars. Nothing could be further from the truth however as we saw some great $100/$200 and $200/$400 PLO action as well as plenty of $1k/$2k Omaha Hi Lo and 2-7 TD.
One player who looked likely to bring in a decent six figure score was Viktor "Isildur1" Blom who, as reported yesterday had started Sunday brightly, taking around $100k, mostly from some heads up sessions vs Phisherman36 at the PLO tables. He continued in this vein at the PLO tables later in the day and was sitting at between $150-180k profit for sometime, even venturing over the +$200k mark at one point after winning this big three way pot at the $200/$400 PLO tables;
Isildur1 is ahead all the way but has a fair few cards to avoid to scoop this $102k pot
Almost immediately after this pot however Isildur lost his way a little at the PLO tables, although he still ended the day an $85k winner at those tables - $100k off his high point. He also made a $49k score at the Omaha Hi Lo tables although a six figure score for the day was scuppered by some more expensive lessons at the 2-7 TD tables where Seb86 (+$83.7k) schooled him a little and Isildur dropped $76k in the process. Still, Blom did end up a $59k winner for the day - at this stage any positive result for the Swede is good news.
Along with Blom's six figure pot there were two other six figure pots played out yesterday, both at the same table as Blom's;
Three players get a piece of this flop leading to a big $180.4k pot in which flop leader azn_baller3 has to redraw to a full house to defeat Ilari FIN's turned straight
Ilari FIN is somewhat lucky to outflop Sam "tr1cky7" Trickett in this $150.2k pot as both he and Isildur1 hold QQxx against Trickett's AAxx
Despite losing this big pot, Trickett made a $60.7k score yesterday which puts him at the top of Septembers list of high stakes winners at PokerStars with a September total profit so far of $640k.
Sitting between Ben86 and Seb86 on the daily leader board we see Ville Wahlbeck who took c.$40k scores at both the PLO and 2-7 TD tables for a total win of $85.2k yesterday.
