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.

Apparently he had had enough because over the last three days Tollerene exploded for 5,071 hands of $25-$50 to $100/$200 Pot-Limit Omaha and No-Limit Hold’em on PokerStars.

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).
