prot0 Wins $166,179 in Big $200/$400 NLHE Games
As you may have guessed by the size of the win and the fact that it came at NLHE, Bill "GASTRADER" Perkins was back in action at PokerStars nosebleed NL tables yesterday, bringing with him a queue of potential opponents at the $200/$400 tables. The biggest winner from the session was Dutch pro Jordi "prot0" Urlings.
prot0 missed GASTRADER's first session, where the multi-millionaire businessman actually made a swift $78.6k after winning two $80k pots in quick succession, playing just 15 hands before leaving the table. However, Perkins didn't stay away too long, and a couple of hours later he was back, this time staying at table Lalage for three hours. During this session Perkins lost a little over $50k, but still managed to walk away with a profit of $25.7k profit.
It took prot0 around a quarter of an hour before his first big pot, and for the next hour and a half he hit a $150k upswing. After an hour or so of breakeven play he enjoyed another small surge during the latter stages of the game to end with his impreessive $166,179 haul.
prot0's biggest pot of the match came early on:
Sick action flop with prot0 flopping the nut straight and Katya_18 flopping a set of sixes. All the money goes in and prot0 manages to fade the one-outer twice - $87.2k pot
The biggest pot of the day also came from this session, and it went to Jacob "Lottenice" Rasmussen:
Lottenice slow plays a flopped set of Kings and extracts max value as Katya_18 makes two pairs and goes for broke on the river - $91.9k pot
The day's second biggest winner also came from the hold'em tables, but not the no limit ones. JesusLebtNOT managed an impressive $69.5k win from the $200/$400 fixed limit tables where he played 882 hands during a four hour twenty minute stint yesterday afternoon.
In third place, after just 23 hands played during GASTRADER's first session, was Scarface.VLT who banked $35.2k at the $200/$400 NLHE tables. GASTRADER actually completed yesterday's top four with his $25.7k profit.
