Yesterday saw “Barcode” have one of those days in poker where you start badly yet recover to recover all losses and then actually turn a profit. In the early stages he dropped a staggering $192k whilst playing against “Ilari FIN” whilst on the Pot Limit Omaha tables.
However, after a short break he came back and started to see his fortunes change for the better. He earned most of his profit on the $100/$200 tables with some of it even coming from the player who had caused him to lose so much earlier in the day.
“Barcode” likes to play heads up, which is how he managed to take home a good score for the day. He pulled $60k back from Sahamies, then went on to dish out the same sort of punishment on “refealamit” with more than $100k going to him on that occasion.
His opponent actually ended up being one of the biggest losers of the day as he dropped around $210k. That has put an end to quite a profitable run for “refealamit”, who had amassed a round $500k last week at the highstakes tables.
The Biggest Pots Of The Day!
It was actually a fairly quiet day at the tables on both PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker, which resulted in their not being too many big pots. There were a few though, with “Barcode” inevitably being involved with most of them.
The very biggest was a hand that saw “Ilari FIN” risk everything on a draw and come out empty handed as the pocket aces of “Barcode” managed to survive to hand him a pot of $99.7k. “Barcode” was also involved in the second biggest hand of the day, again winning it when he hit a set on the flop for $61.4k.
“toweliestar” Hits Good Form!
“toweliestar” has been having a rough time of it this year but yesterday things were looking so much better for him as he turned a profit of $92k. That is just a drop in the ocean though compared to the losses of over a million he has endured so far during the year.
With not too much of the year left to go, he will find it difficult to claw all of that back, so it looks like he will record a yearly loss.
“Ville Wahlberg” was another of the big losers yesterday, dropping around $100k whilst on the high stakes tables at PokerStars. He was mainly up against “buck21” and came out battered and bruised from the encounter.
