Niki "RealAndyBeal" Jedlicka Storms to a $539k Win at PokerStars
It was a return to big winning days for Niki Jedlicka at PokerStars $200/$400 PLO tables yesterday with his $539k win
It's been a while since we've featured Niki "RealAndyBeal" Jedlicka in one of our reports, but there was a time when this young Austrian was making waves across the high stakes PLO scene, sometimes winning millions in a single month over at Full Tilt where he played as "KaiBuxxe" back in 2006/2007.
Jedlicka was one of the young guns to really excel in PLO and won and lost seven figure fortunes in a similar vein to Isildur1 (if in not quite as dramatic fashion as the young Swede). It was after he became a red pro at Full Tilt under his real name that he seemed to go on his biggest downswing. Although he has never been far away from the high stakes scene and has been seen playing high stakes on and off for years, yesterday is the first time in a while he has hit a huge score in the way he did so often 6 or so years ago, when still a teenager.
It was under his PokerStars moniker of "RealAndyBeal" that he hit the big time yesterday as the $200/$400 PLO games seem to have been kick started again of late and Jedlicka ran the tables ragged. He played for approximately 8 hours in bursts of 2 or so hours from early morning until early evening, winning at 33 of the 51 tables he played across the day. He played heads up, short handed and six max. Also in the games were the likes of VietRussian, Barcode, Odd_Oddsen, MrSweets28, Genius28, Ilari FIN, Jeans28 and Vaga_Lion to name but a few in a real star studded line up at PokerStars yesterday.
Although he won consistently, Jedlicka wasn't involved in any of the days biggest pots, preferring not to play too deep - here are the his biggest two though;
It's unlikely Jedlicka thought the pot would be shipped to him after the board ran out as it did - however the 4 of clubs in his hand was enough to hand him this $73.3k pot
RealAndyBeal turns the nuts and scoops this three way all in for $57.1k
9 of the 10 biggest pots of the day came from these games at PokerStars, however, the biggest came from the $250/$500 PLO games at Full Tilt. Here are the days top two;
Ziigmund twice checks the nuts and his patience is rewarded as his river shove is paid off by patpatpanda - $248.5k pot
MrSweets28 turns the nuts with a redraw in this three way all in on the turn. He picks up the $148.9k pot
Other six figure winners from the big PLO games at PokerStars were MrSweets28 (+$217.8k), Odd_Odden (+$125.2k) and V_RouNder (+$101.1k). Ben86 also scored a six figure win at Stars, although he won around $75k of his $162k at the $100/$200 NLHE tables playing wilhasha, as well as c.$85k at the $200/$400 PLO tables.
Some other big winners yesterday included Ingenious89 who won $184k at the CAP PLO tables of Full Tilt, Rui Cao who made up some ground on Finddagrind in their 3rd challenge match, winning $109k at $200/$400 NLHE on Full Tilt. There were also a couple of limit winners at Full Tilt yesterday as KPR16 won $179.5k and Erik1223 $123k.
