EireAbu grinds the PLO games to book a $137k win

This could quite possibly be the player EireAbu.
A bad day for Sauce123 who lost $90k and was the biggest loser.

Irish based player EireAbu played for nearly 12 hours yesterday multi-tabling the $50/$100 PLO tables to finish the day as the biggest winner playing 5,553 hands and winning $137k. EireAbu is rumoured to be Dutch player Jorryt van Hoof who has relocated to Ireland (which makes sense as the tax on poker in the Netherlands is done on a monthly basis thus being ridiculously high for the players) and he was the only six figure winner or loser yesterday in what was generally a quiet day at the high stakes tables. He won four of the ten biggest pots of the day as well.

The majority of the action yesterday was at $50/$100 PLO predominantly at the six-max tables. Despite this, no other player who played these games except for EireAbu won more than $30k. The winners in these games included German player Tsubi87 (+$28k) and another German pro, Benny "toweliestar Spindler (+$26k). The losers in the game included uwintakeit (-$32k) and the biggest loser in these games was none other than Finnish high stakes pro Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies (+$27k) who lost over $45k but recovered well in the heads-up $100/$200 game later on, also winning the three biggest pots of the day.

Ilari win this three-way all-in for the biggest pot of the day at $86k

EireAbu wins his biggest pot of the day as he gets paid off by Ilari FIN on all three streets holding top set and wins this $67k pot.

There was a very short heads-up battle at $50/$100 between calvin7v (+$57k) and Gozoboro (-$55k) who played just one table against each other. It was calvin7v who was the winner in the match and he won $55k from Gozoboro in under 100 hands. Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky (-$90k) played Ilari FIN heads-up at $100/$200 PLO and Ilari FIN seemed to be on an insane heater, having the right end of every cooler against Sauce123. He ended up wining $72k from Sauce who ended the day as the biggest loser which is a reversal in fortunes for the high stakes pro as he was the biggest winner the day before. He is still up around $46k over the two days.

The biggest pot at $100/$200 went to Ilari as he flopped two pair against Sauce123's over-pair to scoop the $62.5k pot.

There was some HUNL action at $50/$100 between Alex "Kanu7" Millar (+$20k) and Sami "Lrslzk" Kelopuro (-$26k) who battled each other for nearly 700 hand with Kanu7 ending the match on top with a win of $20k. We look forward to the biggest SuperStar Showdown so far which takes place at 13:00 ET/19:00 CET tonight between Viktor "Isildur1" Blom and Isaac "philivey2694" Haxton who are each risking $500k in a winner takes all match playing $200/$400 HUNL.
