Trueteller Wins $136,133 at $200/$400 PLO

Only yesterday we celebrated Dani "supernova9" Stern's first six-figure win in some time as he finally put a beating on regular highstakes PLO rival, BERRI SWEET. Stern's good fortune didn't last too long, however, as just over 24 hours later he was on the wrong end of a $136k loss at the $200/$400 PLO tables to Russian pro Timofey "Trueteller" Kuznetsov.

The pair played two tables yesterday evening for a little under two hours, putting in a combined 274 hands, earning the Russian an average of $497 per hand played as he won $136,133 from the confrontation.

The only time supernova9 was ahead in the match was during the first 15 minutes as he took a couple of the opening pots to build a $25k lead. After this it was pretty much all about Trueteller as the young Russian hit a +$200k upswing over the next 75 minutes, peaking at +$190k for the session before Stern was able to fashion something of a comeback ten minutes of the match.

Trueteller took down the day's biggest pot during the session:

This latest win puts Trueteller way clear as the biggest highstakes winner so far in 2017 with just under $650k profit, more than twice that of his closest rival, German pro RaulGonzales.

There were no other big winners yesterday with second on Pokerstars highstakes leaderboard going to CooL1992 who won $13,772 after playing just 34 hands of $50/$100 NLHE either heads-up or short-handed.

Third went to Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky who made a $12,689 profit after beating over $15k from 40and7 after a lengthy heads-up session at the $50/$100 NLHE tables yesterday afternoon and the final four were completed by UK pro Rob "Vaga_Lion" Akery who made $8,521 from half an hours's play late last night at a single $50/$100 NLHE table.
