The action has been great almost every single day at PokerStars nosebleed tables these past 2 weeks or so. Yesterday was no different as Phil "MrSweets28" Galfond, Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom and Ilari Sahamies battled it out at the $200/$400 PLO tables for about 6 hours. Galfond and Sahamies dominated the play and ended up as the biggest winners of the session. In total, Sahamies netted $416k and Galfond $442k.

Sulsky took home 2 of the 3 biggest pots of the session (over $200k each), but still ended the day as a loser. Blom was of course involed in all 3 pots but didn't win a single one of them. Besides that, nothing worked out for the young Swede and he finished the day with a big minus. However, he's still about even since last Friday - when his 2-day winning streak started.

Here is how the biggest pot of the day was played out:

Sauce123 betted $1,400 from the button, MrSweets28 folded the small blind and Isildur1 raised to $4,640. Saurce123 called. The flop came out 7Heart2Heart5Diamond and after some betting back and forth, both players were all in.

The last 2 cards were the 5Spade and the 10Club and Sauce123 took home the pot of $231,736 with a full house 2's over 5's.

I saw on a high stakes poker tracking site that Viktor Blom is down in the last 48 hours over $500k...

On the other hand i really think that Illari had a lot of luck, i mean be basically hit ant draw that he has on flop.

Notice they play monster pots with often they don't have a made hand and still gamble 200k.

It amazes me that players still go up against Glafond etc when they are proven to be big big winning players.

these poker players are high rollers, for them money lost is no money at all for them, they are already immune to the high variance. They know it all to well.

Galfond is the best of those three, other two easily gave their money... Smile
