High Stakes PLO Back at PokerStars

After a somewhat lean spell at the higher stakes tables at PokerStars there has been a welcome return to full tables of $100/$200 and $200/$400 PLO since yesterday, with the biggest winner from yesterday's games, ActionFreak earning $77,895 from over 1,000 hands played.

The likely reason for the sudden burst of action is the appearance of ImagineKing, a high stakes PLO player who has lost close to $2.5m at PokerStars high stakes tables, with the vast majority coming from the PLO tables.

When a whale sits at the table it doesn't take long for the sharks to circle, and included among those who've sat down at the PLO tables to take part over the last 24 hours are the likes of; Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky, EEE27, ActionFreak, Alex "joiso" Kostritsyn, Grazvis1, St1ckman, Ben "Ben86" Tollerene, PINGUWARRIOR, Chris "Apotheosis92" Kruk, BongBob, Jens "Jeans89" Kyllonen, and €uroTr@sh1 among plenty of others.

The biggest action took place at the $200/$400 6max tables where the biggest winner was Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky who earned $80.6k from 101 hands across two tables yesterday afternoon. Sauce also took down the day's biggest pot during this session;

This one was a real bad beat for ImagineKing. All the money goes in preflop with both players holding AAxx. Sauce123 manages to pick up both runs of the board when the first run brings two 10's connecting with one of Sauce's other cards to make him trips, and he manages to make a broadway straight on the second run to take 100% of this $76.2k pot


Sauce123 had lost a little during earlier PLO games, however, so ended the day as the 2nd biggest high stakes winner showing a total profit of $66,354.

Although he didn't play in the $200/$400 games ActionFreak made enough to secure top spot from his time at the $100/$200 tables where he won $55k over the course of two hours late yesterday evening. ActionFreak also enjoyed earlier success at the $25/$50 and $50/$100 tables to end the day up close to $78k.

In third spot we find EEE27 who won $56,267 over the course of 2 hours 40 minutes early yesterday afternoon at the $100/$200 and $200/$400 PLO tables, and rounding our yesterday's top four high stakes winners was NLHE regular NLZWERVERNL who ended his day up $31,473 after playing short-handed at the $25/$50 and $50/$100 NLHE tables during the afternoon sessions from 551 hands played.

There should be another report tomorrow as the high stakes PLO action has continued at the $100/$200 and $200/$400 PLO tables throughout this morning with some big pots and winners already emerging.
