LLinusLLove Wins $112,306 at $200/$400 NLHE vs Otb_RedBaron & Trueteller

Three of the world's top NL 6max players duked it out yesterday at PokerStars $200/$400 tables with Linus "LLinusLLove" Loeliger, Jonas "Otb_RedBaron" Mols, and Timofey "Trueteller" Kuznetsov battling for a couple of hours over two tables last night. When the game came to its conclusion LLinusLLove walked away the only winner with a total profit of $112,306.

Just last week another of the most successful NL 6Max players of recent years, Andres "Educa-p0ker" Artinano compiled a list of who he believes to be the best NL 6max players in the world, with the top three being Trueteller, LLinusLLove, and Otb_RedBaron - so it was a real treat to see all three willing to do battle last night. Incidentally Artinano had only ranked OtB_RedBaron in 3rd place (many believe he is the no.1 6max player) as he believed his short-handed game wasn't as good as the other two - this turned out to be true on this occasion at least as almost all of LLinusLLove's profit came from OtB_RedBaron who ended the day down $91,539.

The $200/$400 match actually started three-handed between LLinusLove, Otb_RedBaron, and Russian pro Katya_18, with the Russian leaving after half an hour with a small ($2k) profit before being replaced by Trueteller.

It was LLinusLLove who actually got off to the worst start, dropping around $40,000 during the first hour of play, and for a while both Katya_18 and Otb_RedBaron (and a little later, Trueteller) made steady early progress. However, LLinusLLove hit back hard during the second hour of the match, winning close to $100k in a 20 minute burst, with OtB_RedBaron for the most part on the wrong end of it. OtB was also on the wrong end of the day's two biggest pots which combined account for the vast majority of his day's losses.

The day's second biggest winner was Gavin "gavz101" Cochrane who earned $25,296 from 400 hands at the $25/$50 PLO tables yesterday evening. In third we find Katya_18 who managed a $10,697 profit from an hour's play early yesterday evening. Katya_18 not only played at the $200/$400 tables but also at the $25/$50, $50/$100, and $100/$200 during a brief but active NLHE session. Completing yesterday's top 4 with a profit of $6,433 was Joni "bustoville" Jouhkimainen who played alongside gavz101 and others during the evening $25/$50 PLO sessions.
