Alexander "joiso" Kostritsyn Up Over $930k in January

It's been a great start to the year by Alex "joiso" Kostritsyn as he approches $1m profit for January over at PokerStars

There were some big games at the nosebleeds yesterday, but only one player emerged with a six-figure win, and it went to the month's biggest winner so far. Alexander "joiso" Kostritsyn enjoyed some good success at PokerStars 2-7 Triple Draw tables and a little in their mixed games.

Most of joiso's winnings came from playing $1k/$2k 2-7 TD heads-up against EireAbu for a little over an hour yesterday morning. The pair switched tables after an hour, with joiso already up $143.6k. They played on for another ten minutes at a new table, with joiso adding a further $26.5k for a $170.1k win.

The remainder of joiso's $198.1k total profit for yesterday came from a combination of numerous outings at the $400/$800 mixed game tables. This latest win puts joiso up close to $930k this month at PokerStars.

Prior to his $171k loss to joiso, EireAbu had been enjoying an outstanding morning at the $200/$400 PLO tables, particularly from a long heads-up session against Ravenswood13. At one point, EireAbu was up over $420k for the day, but a good comeback from Ravenswood13, combined with the big Triple Draw loss to joiso meant that the Irish based player ended the day up just $15.9k

The match between EireAbu and Ravenswood13 also produced the biggest pot of the year so far as the stacks got deep;

On the comeback trail Ravenswood13 turns the nut flush and is able to get decent value out of his opponent on the turn and river to take this $219.7k pot

The second biggest pot of the year also went to Ravenswood13 in another $200/$400 PLO match, this time when playing against AckmaJin and Ilari FIN;

Three ways to the flop, Ilari FIN is pushed out after AckmaJin bets pot on the flop. He then tries to force Ravenswood13 out with another pot sized bet on the turn. However, he gives up on the river and Ravenswood13 is able to take this $152.2k pot uncontested.

Back to the EireAbu vs Ravenswood13 match and EireAbu fails to catch his cards and gives up on the river after helping build this $129.6k pot

Despite winning the three biggest pots of the day, Ravenswood13 was still a $102k loser yesterday. However, considering he was staring down the barrel of a half million dollar loss at one point during the morning sessions, this wasn't a terrible result for the Dutch pro.

There were no other six-figure winners yesterday, with Zugwat coming closest with a $97k win over Viktor "Isildur1" Blom from numerous sessions at PokerStars 2-7 Triple Draw tables.
