He may not get as much fanfare as Isildur1 or Ilari Sahamies but last night Ronny “1-ronnyr3” Kaiser reigned supreme in the high stakes online games.
The Swiss poker pro was on fire in the $100/$200 PLO games and rattled off 2,742 hands in a 10-hour span on PokerStars.
Over the day Kaiser crossed paths we nearly every current star in the online game including Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond, Isildur1, Benny “toweliestar” Spindler, mTw-DaviN, long90110 and LuckyGump.
No one could derail the Kaiser express last night, however, and by the time he called it quits he was up an impressive $425,000.
Kaiser is yet another one of the online players who flies under the radar in the high stakes games thanks to his limited live poker experience but has been amazingly consistent in the online games over the last couple years.
After last night’s victory he’s up over $650k on the year.
1-ronnyr3 was the runaway winner in the high stakes games last night but there were a number of other big name players who posted decent scores.
Ilari Sahamies pulled out of his recent tailspin with a nice $113k profit, as did Scandi sensation Viktor “Isildur1” Blom who raked in $87k.
Verve.oasis (+$127k) and long90110 (+$117k) also made it into the top five while Benny “toweliestar” Spindler, Ben Grundy and Jeans89 all made over $50k.
Meanwhile the lesser-known mikki696 took the brunt of the damage last night losing $296k.
Some of the other notable losers included takechip (-$152k), mTw-DaviN (-$122k), IAmSoSo (-$114k) and IFiNishfish (-$110k).
Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond also had his winning streak rudely snapped by a $108k loss.
