Jeans89 Adds Another $100k Win
Jens “Jeans89” Kyllonen continued his red-hot run in 2012 by plowing his opponents for over $100k last night.
The Finnish poker pro stuck primarily to the $100/$200 6-Max PLO games on PokerStars and made life miserable for opponents Rob “Vaga_Lion” Akery, MaiseE, LuckyGump and Ben86.
Kyllonen recorded an impressive 3,248 hands last night and ended his night up a total of $119k.
He won his biggest pot of the evening – a $56k monster – in a crazy hand where MaiseE turned a straight but Kyllonen rivered a boat.
Kyllonen is the biggest winner of the year with $1.7 million in profit and has a great chance to become the first player to crack $2 million in 2012.
Despite his strong performance, Kyllonen was actually second to Davin “mTw-DaviN” Georgi in profit last night.
The former professional Warcraft 3 player recorded a $192k profit in 2,523 hands.
It’s been a dramatic turnaround for Georgi over the last couple weeks as he was down $95k on the year but after last night is looking at a profit of $395,429.
Some of the other notable winners last night included Ben86 (+$104k), doncarignano (+$104k) and Ben “milkybarkid” Grundy (+$84k).
Alexey “LuckyGump” Makarov took the hardest hit last night as he dumped $196k into the high stakes games.
Fortunately for Makarov, even after the loss, he’s riding a $716k profit in 2012.
Some of the other notable players to wind up in the red included gavz101 (-$167k), MaiseE (-$136k), Vaga_Lion (-$135k) and phounderAA (-$72k).
