Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies has not had the best of months, and in the last three weeks the aggro Finn has been on a c.$800k downswing. Yesterdays win will therefore come as a much needed relief as he looks to rebuild his bankroll once more this year as he finished the day a $181.8k winner.
It looks like FLO8 is becoming the new PLO among the high stakes regulars , just as PLO became the new NLHE about five years ago as even PLO stalwart Ilari FIN has taken to chancing his arm at the high stakes limit game and yesterday won 2/3 of his winnings there with a 5.5 hour +$122k session - taking his money from FLO8 regulars MUSTAFABET and GVOZDIKA55. MUSTAFABET in particular suffered at this session and ended up the days biggest loser, dropping over $159k.
Ilari also had some success at the $50/$100 and $100/$200 PLO tables, winning around 60k over a few sessions. Here is his biggest hand of the day which was played out during a short heads up session against Gozoboro;
Ilari checks back the nuts and induces a shove bluff from his opponent on the way to this $53.8k pot
Ilari has taken down some bigger pots since as he has taken his winnings to the $200/$400 PLO tables today and currently has the biggest pot of the past 24 hours to his name;
A lucky turn for Ilari FIN as he takes down this $61.8k pot
Despite losing to Ilari in the evening FLO8 session, GVOZDIKA55 actually ended the day as the only other six figure winner, his $115.8k haul coming from $170k's worth of winnings earlier in the day at the $200/$400 PLO and FLO8 tables during some post midnight action.
There were no other six figure losers but unusually for recent times we see Ben "Ben86" Tollerene second on the days losers list as he lost $77.3k during a day of sporadic PLO play from $25/$50 up to $100/$200. Still, Tollerene is still a million dollars up in the past month so we're sure it won't take him long to lick his wounds with this relatively minor loss.
