Trueteller up over $1,000,000 this year at PokerStars

Just over a month ago Russian pro Timofey "Trueteller" Kuznetsov hit a near half a million dollar downswing as he dropped from the biggest winner of 2017, with $650k in profit in the last week of March, to just $150k profit by the first week of April. After taking a week or so off Trueteller has come back with a vengeance, and after yet another six-figure win yesterday he is now the first high stakes player at PokerStars to cross the $1,000,000 profit mark for 2017.

Much of Trueteller's downswing came at the hands of Dutch pro Ravenswood13 who enjoyed a huge +$383k session against the Russian pro late in March. Since then those profits have gradually found their way back to Trueteller's bankroll, with $125,657 of it coming from a PLO win for the young Russian yesterday afternoon.

The pair met at the $100/$200 PLO tables where they played for a little under two hours, playing two tables at a time and at four in total.

For the first hour it was Ravenswood13 who was getting the better of things as he slowly built up a lead of around $40k. The second hour, however, was all about Trueteller as he hit a near $170k upswing to end the match up over $125k. This latest win means Trueteller has won over $200k from Ravenswood13 this week, and he is now up over $1m for the year at PokerStars - almost twice the amount of his nearest rival BERRI SWEET, who is showing a $540k profit for 2017.

Trueteller also won the day's biggest pot from this match:

Another player who has been faring well of late is young Swiss NLHE specialist, LLinusLLove, who is up close to $200k this month. He was yesterday's second biggest winnner after earning $47,797 after a long day at the $25/$50 and $50/$100 tables where he played over 1,500 hands in mainly short-handed games.

Third on yesterday's leaderboard we see another player who put in more the 1k hands at the $25/$50 and $50/$100 NLHE tables, underO, who ended the day with a $31,959 profit. Completing the top four was Daniel "w00ki3z." Cates who made most of his $24,502 profit at the $300/$600 FLO8 tables where he played against the likes of Elior "Crazy Elior" Sion, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, David "Deldar182" Eldar, and Jake "JLlama" Abdalla.
