Ilari “Ilari FIN” Sahamies rivered a full house against Ronny “1-ronnyr3” Kaiser to win the biggest pot on PokerStars last night.

Sahamies was in the midst of a 784-hand $100/$200 6-Max PLO session when he nailed this table-breaker against Kaiser.

The table also included doncarignano and Rob “Vaga_Lion” Akery although they stayed out of this particular hand. Sahamies was sitting on $106,565 while Kaiser had $87,539 behind.

Sahamies led out for $800 and Kaiser 3-bet to $2,840 from the small blind. Sahamies called and that brought a 8 8 6 flop.

Kaiser checked but his Finnish rival bet out $5,400. Kaiser called and the 7 peeled off the deck as the turn card.

Once again Kaiser checked but Sahamies bet $17,035. Kaiser called and the board finished with the 6, pairing the board for the second time.

Kaiser checked one more time and Sahamies simply shoved for $51,105, enough to cover Kaiser.

The Swiss pro pondered his options but eventually made the call only to have 7 6 Q T for the rivered boat. Kaiser mucked his hand as the massive $153k pot went directly to Sahamies.

Despite the massive pot, Sahamies only finished with $72k in profit on PokerStars last night as Vaga_Lion (+$119k), Ben86 (+$100k) and Sauce123 (+$96k) were the biggest winners.

Kaiser, on the other hand, never seemed to recover from losing the $153k beast and ended up finishing the night with a total of $181k in losses.

He had some company on the losing side, however, as recent $1 million SuperStar Showdown winner Viktor “Isildur1” Blom dropped $156k in the PLO games.
