Alexander "joiso" Kostritsyn Wins $58,591 in Wednesdays High Stakes Games

Daniel "KidPoker" Negreanu was one of the bigger losers in yesterday's 8-Game matches, losing $27k during a five hour session

After a poor start to the week, Russian pro Alexander "joiso" Kostritsyn has strung together a couple of winning days now and yesterday he topped the high stakes leaderboard with a $58,591 profit taken from PokerStars 8-Game tables.

All of joiso's profit came from a five hour afternoon session at the $400/$800 mixed game tables where he played against Daniel "KidPoker" Negreanu, RaulGonzales, Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky, Sami "Lrslzk" Kelopuro, Christopher "Ceegee87" George. Kostritsun played 382 hands during the session, winning $63,432. His overall profit for the day was slightly less, owing to two small losses at other tables in shorter games he played while the long session was running.

Second on yesterday's leaderboard was German pro donthnrmepls who carved out a $42,663 win playing at the 2-7 TD, HORSE, and 8-Game tables. All of his matches yesterday were played heads-up yesterday evening against greezhool, and it was the German pro who profited from every discipline, winning just over $5k at $300/$600 Triple Draw, $11k at $500/$1000 HORSE, and $26k at $400/$800 8-game.

Third went to Empire2000 who also got the better of greezhool in some early hours $400/$800 8-game matches on his way to a $22,470 profit for the day.

The top four was completed by Tuesday's biggest winner, Elior "Crazy Elior" Sion, who bagged another win yesterday, earning $22,303 from 171 hands played, with $20k of his profit coming from a half-hour heads-up match yesterday afternoon against TAKEDOWN.UK.
