Jeans89 Explodes for $234k Profit on PokerStars
Finnish pro Jens “Jeans89” Kyllonen went on a rampage on PokerStars last night and walked away with $234k in profit.
Kyllonen always seems to fly under the radar compared to fellow Finn Ilari Sahamies but last night he was flying with over 2,000 hands of $50/$100 PLO.
As usual Kyllonen stuck primarily to the 6-max games and won some huge pots off Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond, 1II|1II|1iI| and Zypherin.
Kyllonen is off to a hot start in 2012 and is now second in profit with $735k on the year. Incredibly 90% of Kyllonen’s profit for the year has come over the last seven days.
The player Kyllonen is chasing for first, patpatman who had $967k in online poker profit on the year, was the biggest loser last night as he got destroyed in a series of heads-up $200/$400 No-Limit Hold’em heads-up matches against altiFC.
In the end patpatman lost a total of $220k to altiFC and is now up only $747k and will have to hold off a surging Jeans89.
Interestingly Daniel Negreanu has been playing high stakes online poker over the last 48 hours.
It’s rare that Negreanu plays the high stakes games on PokerStars but perhaps he was inspired by his hot run in the massive $500/$1000 live cash game at the Aussie Millions.
At any rate it didn’t go well for Kid Poker as he ended up losing close to $100k in a 48-hour period. All his hands were recorded in either $50/$100 or $100/$200 No-Limit Hold’em.
Jeans89 was not the only player to win big last night, however, as altiFC (+$219k), wobbly_au (+$138k), takechip (+$114k), O.Klunssila (+$61k) were all killing it.
Meanwhile Eunjong (-$186k), Zypherin (-$103k), 1II|1II|1iI| (-$92k) and MrSweets28 (-$81k) all hit the top five losers list.
