Patpatman Wins $168.7k On The High Stakes Tables!
Yesterday saw “patpatman” finally start to claim back some of the money he has lost during an awful year online, clocking up an impressive $168.7k in one day of action. He was playing at both the NLHE and PLO high stakes tables throughout the day on PokerStars and will be happy to finally make some profit.
Most of his wins came on the $100/$200 No Limit Hold’em tables where he was up against the likes of “Kanu7”, “altiFc”, Sussie Smith and “wilhasha”. “patpatman” actually took down the two biggest pots of the day when he won $75k with A-A against “altiFC” and his Q-Q, and $54k when he this time had K-K which managed to hold against the A-Q of “Kanu7”.
He wasn’t the only six figure winner during the day though as “Geza4308” banking a healthy $141k when he was on a table that included “LuckyGump”, “mikki696” and “BenyamineX”. His biggest pot of the day came when his over pair managed to hold up against “BenyamineX” and his nut flush draw, taking $48k from the pot.
“Chung Ho” was the final six figure winner yesterday after successfully adding $100k to his bank account after a long session against “GVODIKA55”. The pair battled it out all day and kept trading chips, yet “Chung Ho” eventually had just a little too much for his opponent on the day.
Yesterday’s Biggest Winners!
