Ben "Ben86" Tollerene Wins $175k in Early Morning PLO Battle with Phil Ivey

Phil Ivey was on the wrong end of a big PLO match against Ben86 earlier today which left his bankroll $175k lighter

In under an hour's play early this morning, PLO expert Ben "Ben86" Tollerene beat up on Phil "RaiseOnce" Ivey at the $200/$400 tables, winning $175.1k in just 89 hands of play.

Tollerene charted an almost vertical profit graph during the relatively brief confrontation, winning plenty of mid five-figure pots, the biggest of which you can see below:

Having just reloaded, Phil Ivey picks up AAxx and is reluctant to fold as Ben86 fires multiple barrells. Having flopped two pair and turned a full house, Tollerene gratefully takes down this $81k pot

The biggest winner from yesterday's high stakes games was Colisea who ended with a +$115.3k profit after a long day at the 1k/$2k HORSE and FLO8 tables. His biggest wins were a $62k HORSE win over Alexander "joiso" Kostritsyn, and a $51k win over Isildur1 at FLO8.

There were also some decent $200/$400 PLO ring games yeterday featuring the likes of fjutekk, BERRI SWEET, 1-ronnyr3, and RaiseOnce. Although there were no big winners (fjutekk was the biggest winner in the ring games with a $45.3k profit), there were some big pots. See below for the biggest:

fjutekk hits paydirt as he flops a set of 10's after a ton of raising pre-flop in this three-way pot. Ivey misses his flush draw and BERRI SWEET's Aces are no good as fjuetekk triples up with a $144.9k pot

The biggest single session win of the day yesterday was a $191.2k win for Phil "RaiseOnce" Ivey at the FLO8 tables. Ivey racked up the impressive score over 2 hours and 37 minutes of play yesterday evening against Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, Elior "Crazy Elior" Sion, and Patrik "Fake Love888" Antonius. The win came at an opportune time for Ivey who was, until that session, down $150k for the day after losses in the $200/$400 PLO ring games, and some $100/$200 PLO heads-up action against Ronny "1-ronnyr3" Kaiser.
