WRUUUUM Wins $160k in PokerStars $100/$200 PLO Games

Ben Sulsky ended as May's biggest winner with over $860k profit between his Full Tilt and PokerStars accounts

The biggest games online yesterday were played out at PokerStars $100/$200 PLO tables, with the biggest winner, WRUUUUM, taking home $160.7k after nine hours and over 2,000 hands played.

Most of WRUUUUM's profit came from a $134.1k 3.5 hour session played yesterday evening at table Olshaniya where he faced off against the likes of Jens "Jeans89" Kyllonen, Ben86, HC_68, WithColor, and Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies.

WRUUUUM also won the day's biggest pot during his six-figure session at table Olshaniya:

Three ways to the flop, WRUUUUM flops bottom two pair and improves after the turn and river make him a runner-runner full house. Ilari FIN bows out to HC_68's river bet but WRUUUUM is able to raise from the button and get paid off to take this $74.5k pot

The top four winners all came from PokerStars PLO tables yesterday, although there were no other six-figure winners. Ben "Ben86" Tollerene was the closest after logging an $80.3k win from over 1,300 hands played throughout the afternoon and evening.

The biggest winner over at Full Tilt was Cort "thecortster" Kibler-Melby who ended a very long day up $41.6k after yet another lengthy session of $1k/$2k 2-7 Triple Draw against Phil "Polarizing" Ivey. Ivey took first blood yesterday, winning $37k in a 50 minute morning session, but thecortster had the best of the 10 hour session they started mid-afternoon and which ended in the early hours of this morning with a $78.6k win for thecortster. However, credit is due to Ivey who was down $210k in the session at the 7 hour mark, but managed to write off over $130k of his deficit before the end of the match.

After yesterday's results Phil Ivey ended as the second biggest winner in May, with a combined profit of $721,395 between Full Tilt and PokerStars, with Ben Sulsky the month's biggest winner with a combined profit of $861,383. In third spot for May was Ike Haxton, whose combined profit between the sites added up to $541,429.
