An afternoon of high-stakes Hold'em
The only true high-stakes action seen online at all Friday, it all went down in the afternoon with a couple of $500/$1,000 No Limit Hold'em tables lighting up.
Half of the players were the million-dollar ballers, while the other half were unknowns and, somewhat surprisingly, it was the newbies who fared best.
Both kingsofcards and David "POKERBLUFFS" Eldar made over $100k and while Ashton "theASHMAN103" Griffin had a losing session dropping $13k, that was just pocket change compared to Antonius's $205k loss.
In the meantime, everyone's favorite online superstar Tom "durrrr" Dwan managed to make a $100k profit, even after losing the two largest pots of the session.
The biggest pot, worth over $207k, saw Dwan get it all in after hitting a 12-out combo draw holding 3♦ 7♦ on a 10♦ 5♣ 4♦ flop.
Despite swinging for the fence, Dwan missed both draws, giving the Ferrari-sized pot to the pocket kings held by the aptly named kingsofcards.
Continuing his pattern of playing weak hands for raises, Dwan raised 5♠ 7♥ from the button a little later, hitting an almost-perfect 7♠ 6♦ 4♠ flop.
His opponent, knowing Dwan plays any two, called the flop bet sharing Dwan's top pair with J♦ 7♦.
The turn brought the 2♦, giving rospodin a flush draw with his top pair and that was all the incentive he needed to raise all in.
Dwan called, the river bricked, and the $198k pot was shipped to the unknown rospodin.
The three-hour session was peppered with a number of $100k pots, all of which you can find in our MarketPulse section.
Here are the three largest:
