Rui "PepperoniF" Cao Tops Sunday's Leaderboard after PLO Win

Rui "PepperoniF" Cao topped yesterday's high stakes leaderboard at PokerStars with a $55,081 win which came almost exclusively from the $100/$200 PLO tables.

Cao played a two table match heads-up against Brit Tom "tjbetham" Bentham which encompassed a total of 186 hands. The match stayed even for the first half of the 53 minute match, but the last half of the match belonged to the French pro. Over half of PepperoniF's daily profit came from him winning the biggets pot of the match, and indeed the day:

PepperoniF leads out on the flop after tjbentham made it 4bets to go preflop. Bentham jams for his remaining stack and PepperoniF calls. Although Bentham has an overpair of Aces, Cao flopped a pair and a wrap draw and goes on to make his hand on both runs of the turn and river to take this $59.4k pot

The next biggest winner from yesterday's games was Greek pro Alexandros "mexican222" Kolonias who spent a little over four hours at the $25/$50 and $50/$100 NLHE tables on his way to a $51,752 profit.

Most of Kolonias profit came from a session of $50/$100 at 6max table Naef II where he won $37,304 playing against the likes of MMAsherdog, Luke "Bit2Easy" Reeves, Fedor "CrownUpGuy" Holz, 1nvoker, and LLinusLove.

Next up we see one of online poker's earliest high stakes heroes, Brian "aba20" Townsend, who proved he can still mix it with the best, winning $26,266 from close to 3 hours play across a host of $200/$400 and $400/$800 8-Game tables where he came up against the likes of Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, Chun Lei "SamRostan" Zhou, Ravenswood13, and RaulGonzales.

Completing the top four is Italian pro Dario "Secret_M0d3" Sammartino, who made $22,507 from just 29 hands at the $25/$50 NLHE tables.
