Another Win for Trueteller at $1k/$2k 8-Game

Russian pro Timofey "Trueteller" Kuznetsov is starting to work back the $400k or so deficit he has accumulated during the last couple of months. He topped Monday's high stakes leaderboard at PokerStars with a $43,703 win, although at one point his profits neared the $100k mark.

Trueteller played a single table session of $1k/$2k 8-Game for a little over three hours just after midday server time. The match began heads-up between Kuznetsov and US pro Ben"Sauce123" Sulsky who played together for 2hrs and 45 minutes. For the first two hours Trueteller dominated, at one point taking a $93k lead in the match. However, Sauce123 came on strong during the final 40 minutes of the match and after 427 hands of play he reduced the deficit to a mere $2,822 before quitting the game.

sedf Above: Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky staged a great comeback against Trueteller on Monday afternoon to break almost even at the end of their three hour session.

Trueteller was not done, however, and he remained at the table awaiting further competition. He found it just ten minutes later as UK pro Elior "Crazy Elior" Sion pitched up and heads-up play resumed for another 20 minutes, in which time Trueteller added another $40k to his daily profit - putting the Russian pro up close to six-figures over the past two days.

Second on Monday's leaderboard was Finnish pro Pauli "Fiilismies" Äyräs won who $35,857 between stints at the $25/$50 NLHE and $50/$100 PLO tables, with the majority coming from a $50/$100 PLO 6max game where he played against lissi stinkt, Bong Bob, Zagalo87, and Liqqa.

Third place went to kjunia who played exclusively at the PLO tables, putting in 742 hands across the day, mostly at the $25/$50 tables and one session of $50/$100 on his way to a $24,403 profit, and in fourth place we find JayP-AA who took a little time out from his regular PLO tables to win most of his $23,268 profit from a four hour heads-up session at a $200/$400 8-Game table against German pro donthnrmepls.
