“Bttech86” Scoops $162k At Quiet Tables

Money dollarsThe weekend didn’t manage to bring us the high stakes action that we were expecting, with the tables actually being the quietest that we have seen them in quite some time. In fact they only produced one winner of more than $100k with Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene scooping $162k.

He scooped these profits after playing some heads up action against Viktor “Isildur1” Blom at the $500/$1,000 CAP Pot Limit Omaha tables. They only played for a little more than two hours, with Blom actually being in control for most of that time.

He had the lead right up until the last 30 minutes of play in which “Bttech86” clawed back his losses and went more than $100k in front himself. Blom did have a mini revival and got back level but then lost two huge pots near the end which obviously tilted him and he left the table.

Bttech86” walked away with his spoils of $162.3k and didn’t bother playing again during this period.

There was other action at the tables too with the largest pots actually coming from a session between Tom “durrrr” Dwan and Dan “jungleman12” Cates. This session was a continuation of their challenge which has stretched over the last couple of years.

They only played for an hour however with Dwan walking away the winner with $29.3k profits. The largest pot saw Dwan hit a flush on the river to take home $117.8k.

Next up in the profit rankings came “mikki696” after he banked $90.5k whilst playing over at PokerStars on the $100/$200 Pot Limit Omaha tables. The next winner was also from PokerStars as “bernard-bb” scooped profits of $80.2k after sessions at a range of stakes including the $200/$400 Pot Limit Omaha tables.

The last remaining profit maker was one of the most consistent players this year in “cottonseed1” as he added yet more profits with a score of $49k throughout the last couple of days.

The Highest Profits

Bttech86 – (+$162.3k)

mikki696 – (+$90.5k)

bernard-bb – (+$80.2k)

cottonseed1 – (+$49k)

Hopefully the action will pick up throughout this week but with many players taking part in the World Poker Tour World Championship and also preparing for a rather small tournament series in the World Series of Poker at the end of this month, we wouldn’t be surprised if it actually stays fairly quiet.

We will of course still bring regular updates, as there is always going to be at least some kind of action on the high stakes tables.
