Ingenious89 Posts Epic $861k Victory
The big games on Full Tilt Poker are still very much alive since Black Friday and Jens “Ingenious89” Kyllonen proved it last night.
The famous Finnish poker pro recorded 1,134 hands of $300/$600 PLO 6-Max and absolutely stomped his opponents to the tune of $861,000.
Gus Hansen, Patrik Antonius, ronnyr37617, DrugsOrMe and Esvedra all played but Kyllonen took the biggest chunk out of Andreas “skjervoy” Torbergsen, who lost a staggering $957k.
Prior to last night Kyllonen was holding steady with a relatively minor $25k in profit this year. Suddenly he’s up nearly $1 million and one of the biggest winners in 2011.
As good as last night was for Kyllonen it was bad for Torbergsen. The Norwegian has consistently been amongst the top 10 online players for the last year but he’s now down close to $1 million in 2011.
Meanwhile Gus Hansen and Patrik Antonius both made appearances in the high stakes games last night.
Hansen and Antonius are likely the most well-known high stakes players left on the site and they’ve played nearly every night since Full Tilt left the U.S. market last Friday.
Antonius once again found himself on the winning side with $229k in profit while Hansen, who’s been extremely cold the last week, dropped $268k.
Several players recorded huge nights including the surging ronnyr37617 (+$234k), DrugsOrMe (+$130k) and NoPasaran (+$92k).
On the other hand Esvedra (-$195k), genghis888 (-$127k), LokoIsBack (-$29k) all fell into the red last night.
