Mikael "ChaoRen160" Thuritz Wins $158k at $50/$100 PLO

Swedish online legend Mikael "ChaoRen160" Thuritz bagged an impressive $158k haul at PokerStars $50/$100 PLO tables yesterday after an 8.5 hour heads-up session against TheFish77.

The pair first met around breakfast time yesterday, and played through (with a couple of hour breaks) until late afternoon, racking up an impressive 2,343 hands of play.

Apart from going down around $30k during the first half an hour or so of the match, Thuritz led the match throughout, ended up five-figures on 8 of the 9 tables they played during the marathon session - and only losing a four-figure sum at the other table.

The biggest pot of the encounter, inevitably, went to ChaoRen:

A little unlucky for TheFish77 as he picks up a lower straight than ChaoRen160 who scoops this $43.4k pot

There were no other six-figure winners yesterday, with Tochminator coming second on the daily leaderboard with a $48.2k win at the $50/$100 NLHE tables from a 90 minute morning six-max session.

ChaoRen160 +$158.1k
