Ike Haxton and Doug "WCGRider" Polk Win Six-figures at pokerstars

Doug Polk will be able to purchase some more firm-hold hair products after his six-figure win at PokerStars yesterday

The biggest winners from yesterday's games are arguably the top two heads-up NLHE players in the world. However, neither Ike Haxton nor Doug Polk made much of their money at the NL tables yesterday, with Haxton taking his profit from PokerStars PLO tables, and Polk making most of his money at their 8-Game tables.

Haxton made his money from a 90 minute two table session late yesterday morning, winning $40.7k and $81k and at  $100/$200 six-max PLO tables Spitzer II and Chaldea III playing against the likes of NoelHayes, Trueteller, JayP-AA, M.O.P., natalie724, Jeans89, nimzon, and fjutekk. The biggest pot of the day came from the session at table Chaldea:

JayP-AA turns trip 3's and bets out on the river against initial aggressor NoelHayes. He gets the call and scoops the $73k pot

Haxton added a further $34.5k in a subsequent afternoon match, but lost over $45k in some late afternoon/early evening sessions. Despite these later losses he still topped the daily leaderboard with a total profit of $106.2k.

Doug "WCGRider" Polk also made a six-figure score at PokerStars yesterday after some successful late night sessions. He did actually start his winning streak at the NLHE tables, winning $35.2k in just 5 hands of $200/$400 against yiyi01 before moving on the the $400/$800 mixed games where he won $66.6k in a little under two hours playing heads-up against Shaun Deeb to end the day up $101.9k.

The biggest winner over at Full Tilt was Phil "Polarizing" Ivey, who won $47.5k from a 40 minute early-hours heads-up match at the $1k/$2k 2-7 Triple Draw tables over Cort "thecortster" Kibler-Melby. This means Ivey has now written off the $195k he lost early Saturday morning at the 8-Game tables against HoldemJill9 after subsequent wins at PokerStars and Full Tilt.

Yesterday's Biggest Winners

Ike Haxton +$106.2k

WCGRider +$101.9k
