Monster Pot Recap: Sauce123 Tops Sahamies in $167k Clash
Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky rivered a broadway straight to stack Ilari “Ilari FIN” Sahamies for $167k in the biggest pot on PokerStars last night.
Sahamies was mid-way through a seven-hour, 1,396-hand session when he started a heads-up table of $100/$200 PLO against Sulsky.
The pair played for about 30-minutes before this beast of a hand occurred.
Sauce123, sitting on $125k, opened a pot for $500 and Sahamies, who had $83k behind, opted to 3-bet to $1,680.
Sulsky called and that brought a K♦ J♣ 7♠ flop. Sahamies immediately fired another $3,383 into the pot but Sulsky raised to $11k.
The Finn called and the turn came 8♣. This time Sahamies checked but Sulsky kept the pressure on by throwing $16,666 into the pot.
That prompted yet another call from Sahamies and the board finished with the Q♠.
Sahamies shoved for his last $54k and Sauce123 snap-called with what turned out to be the stone-cold nuts.
Ilari Sahamies: Q♣ 8♥ T♥ 3♣ (two-pair)
Ben Sulsky: A♣ T♠ 9♥ 3♠ (ace-high straight)
The river ended up being one of the worst cards possible for Sahamies as he hit two-pair while Sulsky finally completed his broadway straight.
Check below to see exactly how the pot played out in our hand-replayer.
Sahamies continued playing after the table broke and despite booking a few wins in the 6-Max games that included Fake Love888, toweliestar and Ben86 he never really recovered from the Sulsky session and finished as the night’s biggest loser with $186k in damage. That undid a lot of the good work Sahamies did yesterday.
Meanwhile Sauce123 did just fine ending his night with $142k in profit on PokerStars.
Ben86 (+$148k) and Jens “Jeans89” Kyllonen (+$73k) were the other two notable big winners last night while Zypherin (-$143k) and Fake Love888 (-$73k) continued to bleed money in the high stakes games this year.
