Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky has been doing extremely well at PokerStars' nosebleed tables in the past three weeks or so. In fact, as of September 1st, he was up $2,678,174 (over $900k from playing NLHE and over $1.7 million from playing PLO) this year, which means that he has won about $2k more than EireAbu (rumoured to be a Dutch pro based in Ireland) - the previous biggest winner of 2012 on PokerStars.
Now, it will be interesting to see how things turn out this week at PokerStars' high stakes tables. Maybe neither "sauce123" nor "EireAbu" will be in the lead next Monday? Anything is possible at these high stakes with so tough competition, so we will just have to wait and see.
On Tuesday, it was announced that PokerStars and Viktor "Isildur1" Blom had decided not to renew the contract. After the "break up", Blom said "I've enjoyed my time as a Team Pro and I wish everyone at PokerStars the best. Now I just want to concentrate on playing poker."
Blom seems to be a man of his word as he opened up six $50/$100 PLO tables and played against EireAbu (one of the most successful PLO heads up players on PokerStars this year - rumored to be a Dutchman playing from Ireland) just a few hours after he made the announcement. And guess what? The match turned out to be one of the longest and most interesting heads up matches of 2012 (so far).
It's time to take a look at the online high stakes scene's past month as there have been many interesting games running on PokerStars in the past few weeks. By far the biggest winner in April month was Ben "Ben86" Tollerene who got away with a fantastic $1,300,553 profit - more than double what the runner-up won (EireAbu - $634,825). Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky won $556,492 and secured the third place on April's list of winners.
