It's been a good week for Gavin "gavz101" Cochrane at PokerStars high stakes PLO tables. The English pro topped yesterday's high stakes leaderboard with a $64,557 win, and over the last seven days he has topped the daily leaderboard on no fewer than three occasions accumulating $231,788 in profits along the way, making him PokerStars biggest high stakes cash game winner so far in 2018.

Cochrane put in a little under 1k hands in just over four hours yesterday afternoon/evening at the $25/$50 and $50/$100 tables, with nearly all of his profit coming from a 1hr 40min two-tabling session at the $50/$100 stakes where he played against Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies, Cobus83, Maahone, probirs, and bajskorven87. He won $34,996 at table Musa, and $27,487 at table Naiad II.

The biggest pot of the day went to one of the afroementioned players, bajskorven87, but it came from the $50/$100 NLHE tables during a heads-up match he played against another of 2018's biggest winners so far, Swiss pro Linus "LLinusLLove" Loeliger:

All in on the flop with bajskroven87's top pair aiming to stay ahead of LLinusLLove's nut-flush draw and overcard. LLinus misses and bajskorven87 takes down this $48.1k pot


In total bajskorven87 won $52,542 yesterday, with almost $49k of that coming from heads-up matches against LLinusLLove. This was enough to place him third on yesterday's leaderboard.

Just above bajskorven87 in second spot we find UK pro Elior "Crazy Elior" Sion with a $53,452 profit. Elior made his gains at the 8-Game and Triple Draw tables. He started with a $20k win over Mikael "ChaoRen160" Thuritz at the $400/$800 and $1k/$2k 8-Game tables, followed by a $32k win over German pro RaulGonzales at the $500/$1000 and $1k/$2k 2-7 Triple Draw tables yesterday evening.

Completing yesterday's top four winners was Maahone who ended the day up $51,464 after playing over 1.3k hands between the $25/$50 and $50/$100 PLO 6max tables. His winnings were split between some early morning, mid-afternoon, and early evening sessions.
