The biggest winner at PokerStars high stakes tables yesterday was limit specialist Vladimir "GVOZDIKA55" Shchemelev who took home a $145.8k win at the Limit Omaha Hi Lo tables.
Unusually he took his winnings from players we are more used to see dominating the action at the PLO tables as Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies and FakeLove888 (still rumoured to be Patrik Antonius) both fell foul of the Russian player with Ilari dropping $129.6k and FakeLove888 $41.6k in the games. Ilari has played 32 sessions of FLO8 this year and looks to be expanding his playing field after almost exclusively playing PLO for most of his online career. If FakeLove888 is indeed Antonius then he on the other hand is well versed in all limit games and on Full Tilt alone he won over $1.7 million at FLO8.
After yesterdays win GVOZDIKA55 was closing in on a half million dollar profit in 2012 in the FLO8 games. However, some sessions past midnight server time playing heads up against KPR16 lost GVOZDIKA over $90k of his profits from yesterday.
Over at the PLO tables we had a reappearance from multi-tabling action junkie FaKeOrReaL who topped the PLO leader board yesterday with a $95.5k win - although as with GVOZDIKA55 his efforts post midnight have since seen off most of his profit. As ever FaKeOrReaL was playing on 6+ tables in his usual frenetic style. As ever the biggest pots of the last 24 hours have come from the PLO tables although at the earlier $200/$400 games rather than the $50/$100 games in which FaKeOrReaL won his money.
The days biggest hand goes to Ilari FIN who started brightly at the $200/$400 PLO tables before fading later on in the session;
Ilari flops and open ended straight and flush draw and isn't going anywhere as 1Il|1Il|1il| jams the flop - $89.2k pot
Jeans89 wins this flopped wrap vs flopped set against Ilari FIN as his wrap completes on the river - $82.8k pot
azn_baller3 flops the nuts against Ilari's AAxx to take this $81.7k pot
Third on the leader board behind GVOZDIKA55 and FaKeOrReaL we see former midstakes legend and PokerStars Team Online Pro Randy "nanonoko" Lew whose $94.5k win erases his $62k loss from yesterday as he crushed the $50/$100 NLHE games.
