Someone finally stole the spotlight from Isildur1 in the high stakes games on PokerStars last night.

Sander “Berndsen12” Berndsen, a frequent opponent of Isildur1, burned through 1,985 hands last night and picked up $416k to take top spot on the cash game leaderboards.

The Dutch pro was very active earlier this year and after winning a number of heads-up sessions against Ilari Sahamies and Isildur1 peaked at $871k in profit in January.

The hot streak didn’t last however as Berndsen12 started trending down and was down $223k as of last week.

His biggest profit came from a $100/$200 PLO 6-Max table with Rafi Amit, MaiseE, Ronny “1-ronnyr3” Kaiser. Berndsen straight up owned the table and won $129k.

The rest of his victories were spread across a number of smaller tables including a few heads-up tables against donthnrmepls.

In the end Berndsen12 finished with $416k, which is enough to get him back in the black in 2012 by about $200k.

Isildur1 Continues to Plummet, Loses $121k

Meanwhile Viktor “Isildur1” Blom was active last night but only recorded 3,477 hands and lost $121k in a relatively minor session for him.

Blom won nearly $700k last week but has seen nearly all of that profit disappear over the last few days.

Outside of Berndsen12’s massive session it was a relatively quiet night for high stakes. Jens “Jeans89” Kyllonen and Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond played very minor sessions while Ilari Sahamies was absent completely.

No one came close to matching Berndsen12’s profit but mikki696 (+$140k), Lrslzk (+$115k), EireAbu (+$106k) and Vaga_Lion (+$75) all recorded decent scores.

Meanwhile donthnrmepls was the biggest loser last night, mostly due to his heads-up sessions against Berndsen12.

ILIOS72 (-$88k), wobbly_au (-$82k) and Kanu7 (-$75k) were the other big losers last night.
