The CAP Pot Limit Omaha tables were running hot over on the nosebleed Full Tilt cash games. In what is one of the most extreme styles of poker known for its bad beats and action packed hands, Harry “Schoitl” Cassagrande was the man on form taking a massive $230,000.
In the morning he was grinding hard for over six hours, playing in a heads-up PLO session versus Sorel “Imper1um” Mizzi. For Mizzi, it was a session that saw Mizzi hand over $20,000 to opposite end of the table before both played ducked out of the game.
Over on the ring games, Cassagrande was also setting his seat alight as he took on some of the biggest names in online poker. Benny “psychobenny” Spindler, Ben “Bttech86″ Tollerene, David Benefield, “no_Ola” plus a few other big names.
“Shoitl” turned out to be the man with the best form in this circuit of high stakes players. It was the last few hours of his day at the poker tables, and he stormed through the hands dragging in pot after pot with aggressive betting and delivering some awesome hands as well as what could have been some great bluffs, forcing Blom style table wide folds. And when it meant it was time to get out of the action, he seemed to use his sixth sense to get away from hands won via the nuts.
In the CAP Pot Limit Omaha games, there were two players who dropped six figures. “no_Ola” was down $106,000 by the time he’d had enough and exited from a loss were we rarely see him sink that low into the red. The other six figure loser was Sorel “Imper1um” Mizzi, who lost $127,000 over the course of the day making him the biggest loser.
Moving away from the Omaha tables and “Gus Hansen” continued his upswing. He is now looking at $750,000 profit in recent play, putting a dent in what has begun to approach a $4 million deficit for 2013. Mostly, Hansen got most of yesterday’s cash windfall playing in the Omaha Fixed Limit High/Low games versus “SallyWoo”. He took $132,000 from the mystery player in a session that took just 20 minutes of play to get his just deserves. It wasn’t all roses as over on the Triple Draw tables, he wasn’t showing much promise at all, but recorded only a slight loss.
“Follow The Hawk” was the day’s third highest winner with $90,400 in profit playing in the much lucrative Deuce to Seven Triple Draw games. “Gus Hansen”, “Kagome Kagome” and none other than the regular Draw player as of late Alex “Alexonmoon” Luneau. We also saw Phil “Polarizing” Ivey back on the Full Tilt tables although his appearances have been generally brief this year.
