Return of KaiBuxxe? Jedlicka wins $1 million

Tom Dwan, Nikolaus Jedlicka

Long before there was a durrrr, there was another young online player who was touted as the next online superstar.

His name was Niki "KaiBuxxe" Jedlicka and in 2007 he went on the mother of all PLO heaters eventually winning $3.2 million for the year.

Unfortunately for the young Austrian all good things must come to an end and, thanks to a combination of poor table selection (hello Tom Dwan, David Benyamine, David "Raptor" Benefield, Cole South and Patrik Antonius.

Playing a combination of $200/$400 6-Max PLO and $300/$600 6-Max PLO, Jedlicka was able to drag several monster pots worth over $100,000 each. In his biggest win, Jedlicka rivered the nut-straight on a Q J 5 J T board to win $161,447.

On the other side of things, Dwan was the biggest loser, dropping close to $850,000, which was close to the total amount he won the day before. After being down nearly $4 million earlier this year, Dwan is still up over $1 million in 2009.

The high stakes PLO games on Full Tilt Poker continue to be incredibly well-populated and it's likely we'll see more action featuring the game's biggest names before the end of the week.

Perhaps it's a combination of the lack of major live tournaments currently running or that players are looking for something to get over the WSOP hangover, but the games are busier than they've been all summer.

We're still waiting on some $500/$1,000 action, however.

You can check out several examples of Jedlicka's work from last night in the PokerListings' hand-replayer below:
