"Aussie" Matt Kirk Up Nearly $1m in two sessions at Trickett's PLO at partypoker

In just over a week Australian high stakes poker player Matt Kirk has absolutely beasted his two sessions in Sam Trickett's invite-only high stakes PLO game over at partypoker and after a huge win on Wednesday his profit is in excess of $910,000.

We all thought he ran hot last week when he creamed a stacked table to the tune of $340,000, but that's as nothing when compared to Wednesday when he left the table with a staggering $587,000 profit playing against stiff opposition which included Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, Luke "fulllfush19" Schwartz, Andrew "thepucker" Pantling, Jan Peter "jpjhamburg" Jachtman, Rob Yong, and Leon Tsourkernik.

The only other winner of any significance was Andrew Pantling who won $100k from the $100/$200 battle. Other than that, the only winner at all was Luke "fullflush19" Schwartz who made a small $3k profit. Luke's win could have been much bigger had he not made a hero call in a huge pot against Matt Kirk who had naturally made a runner-runner straight to win a $200k pot against Schwartz's aces.

Viktor "Isildur1" Blom had a good start to the game and looked like he might be heading towards a decent outing at the tables but despite his sterling efforts at partypoker's tournament tables (while the game was running, Blom was winning over $1/2m for finishing runner-up to Ben "CowEyed" Tollerene in the Powerfest $25k High Roller), he ended up losing $160k for the session, with almost half of that lost to Kirk in another big pot scooped by the popular Aussie.
As the pot unfolded Isildur1 had turned top two pairs with a king high flush draw, Jan-Peter "jpjhamburg" Jachtman had flopped a wrap draw and turned even more straight outs. However, Aussie Matt had turned top set along with the nut-flush draw and found himself in good shape when all the money went in on the turn. Filling up on the river Kirk took down a near $250k pot

The biggest loser of the game was once again Leon Tsourkernik who dropped $300k for the second time in a row. Matt Kirk may never see the alleged $2m Leon owes him from a contested Las Vegas loan, but he's certainly doing his best to win it back at partypoker's high stakes tables!
