Ben86 just keeps on winning - takes $171k Saturday

Ben86 just keeps on trucking...
Akery wins $78k yesteday and is fast closing in on $1 million high stakes winnings since our tracking of PokerStars began in late 2010

After a shaky start to the year Ben86 is really on a roll this past week and yesterday added yet another big score to his bankroll, taking an impressive $171k from the high stakes, mainly at the $50/$100 PLO tables.

In particular Ben86 took nearly $140k from a 3.5 hour session at table Sahade III. This session also brought the biggest hand of the day, and the biggest hand we've seen in a little while - Ben86 was perhaps not surprisingly the benefactor.

All three players had something to shove with on this flop - Ben86 however is miles ahead and his top set holds up - $153k pot

It was one of the losers in this hand, Benny "toweliestar" Spindler who ended up as the days biggest loser, dropping almost $160k across three tables of $50/$100 PLO playing alongside Ben86, LuckyGump, Zypherin, bernard-bb, Terken89 and MrSmits

The second biggest hand of the day was won in a rarely seen five way all in as Liqqa's AA amazingly holds up in this $91k pot

Second on the leader board for Saturday was UK pro Rob "Vaga_Lion" Ackery who won $78k playing $50/$100 PLO and $100/$200 NLHE - Akery is now just $35k short of being a $1 million winner since we started tracking the high stakes games at Stars. The other six figure loser for the day was high stakes fish Zypherin who lost $106k and who is now showing over $2 million in losses since we started to track PokerStars high stakes games.

After yesterdays results Ben86 has taken nearly $800k in the past seven days and is close to $650k in profit for 2012.
