The biggest high stakes winner at PokerStars in January was UK PLO specialist Gavin "gavz101" Cochrane who finished a great month in style yesterday, topping the daily high stakes leaderboard with a $73,117 profit.

Cochrane played close to 1.5k hands of PLO yesterday at every limit from $25/$50 up to $200/$400 and put in a total of six hours of play in total, most of which took place yesterday afternoon. Over $50k of his profits can be traced to $200/$400 sessions which ran where he played against the likes of BERRI SWEET, Timofey "Trueteller" Kuznetsov, Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky, Sami "Lrslzk" Kelopuro, and Mongano.

gavz101 also took down the day's biggest pot from the $200/$400 sessions:

This latest win of Cochrane's puts him up $348,324 for January, way aheaed of his closest rival, fellow UK PLO player JayP-AA with a $185,527 profit.

Portuguese pro André "Sira Al Aziz" Santos found himself in second place on yesterday's high stakes leaderboard after earning an impressive $69,581 from the $25/$50 PLO tables, putting in over 1.4k hands during 5.5 hours at the 6max tables  yesterday morning/afternoon playing against St1ckman, ImagineKing, Jeans89, WRUUUUM, and PINGUWARRIOR.

Yesterday also saw the return of NLHE specialist wilhasha, who has been seen very rarely of late at PokerStars high stakes tables. He was back yesterday and ended up with a good result after playing heads-up at two tables of $100/$200 NLHE against young Swiss phenom Linus "LLinusLLove" Loeliger. The Swedish pro played 438 hands in total against Loeliger which resulted in a $54,274 win for wilhasha.

Much of wilhasha's profit came from taking down the second largest pot of the day;

Tough to lay down trip Kings playing heads-up NL and LLinusLLove inevitably pays off wilhasha's full house in this $72.7k pot

Completing yesterday's top four we find another NLHE pro as limitless earned $40,664, with all his profit coming from a 20 minute 3-handed session of $50/$100 late yesterday afternoon alongside Luke "Bit2Easy" Reeves and bajskorven87.
