Rafi Amit is starting to get just plain ridiculous in the high stakes games on PokerStars.

The Israeli pro burned his way through 873 hands last night en-route to another $101k victory.

Amit has been red hot for over a month now and it’s hard to remember the last time he recorded a losing session.

Last night Amit played around in the $50/$100 PLO 6-Max games and did reasonably well but then took on Rui “PepperoniF” Cao at $50/$100 heads-up and absolutely lit him up for $75k.

The biggest winner on PokerStars this year, Amit improved his numbers last night and is now a serious threat to crack the $2 million mark with $1.99 million in profit.

To put things in perspective Andreas “Skjervoy” Torbergsen is the second biggest winner this year but has $1.2 million in profit.

Amit is far from a lock to go out on top this year but at this point he’s certainly looking like a good bet.

Online player moirhums managed to hold off Amit last night, however, as he was the biggest winner with $124k.

Insyder19 also recorded a nice bounce back session by winning a total of $83k. Right behind him was socutiesf, who took down $80k.

Finally Ben “Ben86” Tollerene coasted into the top five winners with a relatively modest $32k in profit.

Meanwhile online player mitdadu was the biggest loser last night dropping a total of $138k.

Perhaps more notable was Finnish pro Sami “Lrslzk” Kelopuro who lost $102k in 1,871 hands.

Kelopuro was trying to dig his way out of the hole he’s in this year and last night’s session certainly didn’t help as he’s now down $284k in 2011.

He had some company, however, as French pro Rui “PepperoniF” Cao got into trouble last night and ended up losing $68k, mostly to Rafi Amit.

Cao can rest a bit easier as he’s still up $1.1 million in online poker this year.

Long90110 (-$69k) and verve.oasis (-$56k) rounded out the top five biggest losers last night.
