LlinusLlove Wins $1/4 million as Bill "GASTRADER" Perkins Brings the Action

There was a queue to get at the $200/$400 NLHE tables yesterday afternoon at PokerStars as multi-millionaire businessman and poker enthusiast Bill "GASTRADER" Perkins was in the mood for some high stakes action.

Not since the days of Guy Laliberte have we seen the sharks so eager to jump into the deep waters to go whale hunting, and this time some of them got to tuck in during the near 5 hour session GASTRADER put in yesterday afternoon.

The big winner at the table was LlinusLlove who bagged a personal best score of $249,564 for the day. This is made all the more impressive by the fact that back in just 2013 the same "LlinusLlove", then just 19 years old posted a thread on 2+2 in Poker Goals & Challenges in which he was attempting to run his $150 bankroll from NL10 up to NL100 by the end of the year. LlinusLove is more often seen in the $10/$20 and $25/$50 streets, but the Swiss national obviously knows a good spot when he sees one!

Unsurprisingly LlinusLlove won all the biggest pots of his career in yesterday's session and here is the bigest:

Late on in the session, LlinusLlove is more than happy to get it all in vs GASTRADER with AQ. GASTRADER's 88 is only good up to the flop when an Ace comes in the window and this $85.3k pot is shipped to LlinusLlove:

This wasn't the biggest pot of the session, however. The biggest pot was actually won by Perkins against LlinusLlove a while before the pot featured above:

No doubt GASTRADER's loose images helped him get his turned full house paid off here - $111.5k pot

There was another six-figure winner yesterday, but they didn't hail from the $200/$400 NLHE tables. Cobus83 played heads-up for over two hours yesterday afternoon against JayP-AA at the $50/$100 PLO tables, resulting in a $111.7k win from 479 hands played across five separate tables.

In third place with a $69.1k profit was 1nvoker who made $50k of his day's profit from the GASTRADER $200/$400 NLHE session, with the rest coming from earlier stints at the $50/$100 and $200/$400 tables.

Kaarem completed the top four with a $52.8k win at the $50/$100 NLHE tables.
