The action on PokerStars' nosebleed tables has slowed down quite a bit since Full Tilt Poker reopened for business. However there were some pretty nice $200/$400 PLO ring games running there on Monday with Ilari Sahamies, Sam Tricket, Barcode and other regulars in the centre of the action. Barcode, whose identity is unknown, ended up as Monday's biggest winner with a $232.6k profit. Most of the profit came from a $282k pot - that could have been a $680k pot. Here is how it was played out...
Ilari FIN bet $1,720 from UTG, patpatman folded, LuckyGump raised to $5,880, and barcode reraised to $19,680. Ilari FIN called, LuckyGump moved all in for $34,675, barcode reraised to $123,785 and Ilari FIN called.
The pot was $282,480 when the flop 475 hit the table. barcode moved all-in for $199,923 and Ilari FIN decided to lay down his hand ($381k left at the table).
Turn 2, river 4 - barcode took down the pot of $282,480 with a straight.

Ilari FIN bet $1,520 from the small blind, patpatman raised to $3,400. Ilari FIN reraised to $10,520 and patpatman called.
Flop 4107 Ilari FIN bet $21,355 and patpatman called.
Turn 9 Ilari FIN bet $64,065 and patpatman called once again.
