Ben86 Owns Weekend, Wins $236k
It was a very good Easter weekend for online reg Ben “Ben86” Tollerene who clobbered his opponents for over $200k in profit on PokerStars.
Tollerene had been treading water for much of 2012 and even dug himself into a $221k hole in mid-March.
Tollerene torched a number of high-stakes opponents including Ben “milkybarkid” Grundy, L0ve2playU, Vaga_Lion and FMyLife.
By the time Tollerene finally called it quits on Sunday he was up $286k.
Born in the U.S., Tollerene picked up $562k playing offshore last year and is now back in the black this year with just over $100k in profit.
The one player who gave Tollerene fits last night was 2plus2 regular WCG|Rider who burned Tollerene several times in the heads-up No-Limit Hold’em games.
WCG|Rider went on to beat up 0Human0 to finally finish with a $116k profit on the weekend. It was good enough for second place behind Tolelrene.
Other big winners over Easter weekend included N Channing (+$74,000), Peich_Tei$ ($64,000) and EireAbu ($56,000).
PLO master Ben Grundy, also known as the milkybarkid, finally recorded a sub-optimal batch of sessions this weekend, dumping $145k into the high-stakes games.
It was the worst loss of the weekend but German star Benny “toweliestar” Spindler wasn’t far behind with $105k in losses.
The other big losers included philivey2694 (-$90k), Ilari FIN (-$86k) and 0Human0 (-$71k).
