Gavin "gavz101" Cochrane Wins $44,298 at PokerStars PLO Tables

The biggest winner at PokerStars high stakes tables yesterday was UK PLO regular Gavin "gavz101" Cochrane who earned $44,298 after a busy evening at the $25/$50 and $50/$100 6max tables.

Although Cochrane played for a few hours in the afternoon, it was during his evening sessions that he made his profit, with over $20k coming from a three hour session at $25/$50 table Freda where he played against the likes of Jens "Jeans89" Kyllonen, BERRI SWEET, fjutekk, and theolimasp, and a further $26.7k coming from just over an hour playing at $50/$100 table Luanda.

Cochrane also took down the biggest pot of the day from his $25/$50 session at table Freda:

All the money goes in on the flop with theolimasp flopping bottom two pairs against gavz101's nut flush draw with an overpair and a gutshot straight draw. The flush completes on the turn and this $24,295 pot is shipped to gavz101


Second on yesterday's leaderboard was NLHE phenom OtB_RedBaron who played at over 20 $25/$50 tables across the day, putting in over 1.3k hands on his way to a $35,050 profit. The majority of his winnings came from a 90 minute lunchtime session at table Jihlava where he played short-handed against jinmay, xcoolerman97, and Stambolov

In third we find BongBob who earned $18,865 yesterday evening, with over $18k coming from a 6max table of $50/$100 PLO, and completing yesterday's top four we find YurNas who won $15,547 from 537 hands at the $25/$50 and $50/$100 NLHE tables in the early hours of the morning.
