A crazy 48 hours at the PokerStars high stakes tables

Wednesday, 25 January 2012

Wow. That’s all we can say after the maniac action at the high stakes Omaha tables on PokerStars this past 48 hours. You may recall yesterday we posted some action from – who else? – Isildur1 who was at the time up $300,000 when we published.

Now, he is up $152,000. But the story isn’t as simply as that. Yesterday, Viktor Blom was at the tables for over 12 hours and at one point climbed as high as $690,000 profit. In the dying hours of his session, though, he managed to drop down to his $152k profit.

Others involved in the action were Jens “Jeans89” Kyllonen who earned six figures and Ilari “Ilari_FIN” Sahamies who dropped almost $200k. One man who will wish yesterday’s action never happened is Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond who lost $700k, posting a graph on Twitter that showed him running over $500k under EV. Ouch.
