Sander “Berndsen12” Berndsen and Phil “takechip” D’Auteuil went heads-up playing $100/$200 NLHE last night on PokerStars and contested the two biggest pots of the last 24 hours.

The biggest online poker winner overall was actually BiatchPeople, who earned $150,000 yesterday playing 2-7 Triple Draw, but because of the Limit structure of that game none of the pots even came close to the behemoths built by Berndsen and D’Auteuil.

Surprisingly, since they played two six-figure pots and a slew of other monsters, neither Berndsen or D'Auteuil cracked the biggest winners or losers lists on the day.

Berndsen finished just over $9,000 up while D’Auteuil lost roughly the same. Let’s take a closer look at the day’s two biggest pots.

Game: $100/$200 No-Limit Hold’em on PokerStars

Players and Stacks:

  • Berndsen12 - $81,832
  • takechip - $50,784

The biggest pot of the day began with Berdsen12 opening K 4 to $500 from the button and takechip three-betting to $1,800 with J J from the big blind.

The flop came T 8 5 and takechip c-bet $2,200 into $3,600, looking to squeeze out some value with his overpair.

Berndsen flopped the second nut flush draw with an overcard and semi-bluff raised to $5,800. takechip re-raised to $13,300 and Berndsen clicked it back to $20,800. takechip then made it $45,300, leaving himself just $3,684 behind, and Berndsen shoved all-in.

Berndsen missed on the turn and river and the $101,488 pot was shipped to D’Auteuil.

Berndsen Sheriffs, Loses $99k

The second biggest pot of the day was also won by Phil D’Auteuil, this time thanks to straight-up value-towning with an overpair on a low board.

Game: $100/$200 No-Limit Hold’em

Players and Stacks:

  • Berndsen12 - $112,945
  • takechip - $50,000

With a fresh $50k stack takechip three-bet 9 9 from the big blind and got a call from Berndsen on the button with T 6.

The flop rolled out 6 4 3 and takechip led out for $2,300, call. The 8 on the turn brought an $11,400 bet from takechip and another call from Berndsen. The 8 hit the river and takechip bet $34,360 into $31,200, basically all-in since he had left himself just $40.

Berndsen made the hero call and the just-under-six figure pot was shipped to the French-Canadian.
