During the last few days at the high stakes tables on both of the world’s biggest poker platforms; PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker, there has been the usual regular supply of high octane action with vast amounts of money changing hands on a regular basis.
“no_Ola” was the player that actually turned out to be the biggest winner over that period with a profit of $120.6k, though not too far behind him was “davin77” who managed to claw back initial losses of $163k to eventually turn a profit of $117.3k.
There were a total of three more players who took down scores of $100k or more, “SchoitI” with a profit of $115.6k, “1Mastermin” with $109.3k whilst at the $200/$400 Pot Limit Omaha tables. The other winner came from the $50/$100 Fixed Limit Omaha Hi/Lo tables with it being “SallyWoo” who took around $106.3k from “Erik1223”.
The Largest Pots!
The large pots that we were always used to have been hard to come by of late with players preferring to play on the CAP tables, which have limited the betting. However the largest we have seen over the past couple of days was a pot of $95.4k, when a new name on the tables “punting_peddler” and his top pair was enough to beat the second pair of “Tight-Man1” on the $200/$400 NLHE tables.
Another big hand was that of “no_Ola” hitting a full house on the river to take a $32.8k pot from “davin77”.
Those Who Struggled!
The player who has struggled the most during this period was “psychobenny” as he lost $214k to reverse the early week fortunes he experienced. The same can be said for Sam Trickett, who had a good start to the week but has since lost $90k whilst plying his trade at the $200/$400 Pot Limit Omaha tables.
The biggest winner from the action over at PokerStars was “cantbeat” who took down $70.5k in a heads up session against “SoloTalent2” on the $50/$100 Pot Limit Omaha tables.

It remains to be seen just how much action we can expect to see over the coming days in the run up to Christmas, it really could go either way. However busy it is, we will continue to bring you updates on just who is making waves on the high stakes tables, whilst just who is finding it difficult to bring down a good score before Christmas. Many other players may just have called it a year already and are setting their sights on their poker in 2013.
