Last night, when I went to bed, the 200/400 plo tables were up and running for the first time in a long while. When I woke up this morning, I was excited to check how the games had turned out. To my amazement, the games were still running and had been throughout the night, with essentially the same players competing. The source of this rare action was Zypherin, who is rumored to be Guy Laliberte. Laliberte is still relatively new to poker in general and would be a newcomer to plo. You can hear him discuss his love for poker by clicking the link at the top of the article. The high stakes fish managed to drop just over 500k over the 18 hour 2 table session. If the account is controlled by Laliberte, it is unlikely the loses will keep him away from the tables for long, since his 3 billion net worth will barely notice the missing half a million. Lets hope this is the case, and that the 40k tables will become a regular running game on Stars.
Zypherin was easily the biggest loser in the games yesterday, but the high stakes produced other 6 figure winners and losers. The biggest winner in the games was David “deldar182“ Eldar, who scooped up almost 300k in the 40k plo games. Many will know him better by his Full Tilt screen name, “POKERBLUFFS“. He was a big player in the nosebleed no limit hold”em games on Full Tilt and has successfully made the transfer to plo, as indicated by his recent profits in the Pokerstars plo games. His recent winnings have brought him to a combined 2 million in profits since his accounts became active on the high stakes scene in late 2009. With a little run good, I think we can be sure we have added another big winner to the high stakes plo mix on Stars.
