ChaoRen160 Wins $122k in Mixed Games

As we reported yesterday, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom had a great start to the day yesterday, winning over $200k in the early hours of the morning against Alexander "joiso" Kotritsyn at PokerStars $1k/$2k 8-Game tables. However, the rest of the day wasn't so kind to Blom, who had to settle for second on the daily leaderboard to fellow Swede Mikael "ChaoRen160" Thuritz who ended the day up $121,826.

Thuritz made almost all of his profit at the $1k/$2k 8-Game tables where he won $120.1k from a single 4 hour session at table Libitina II where he came up against the likes of Isildur1, Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky, Matt "MUSTAFABET" Ashton, Jason Mercier, joiso, Daniel "KidPoker" Negreanu, Scott "gunning4you" Seiver and Chun Lei "SamRostan" Zhou. Throughout the session there was a huge waiting list for the game, with young internet hotshots no doubt looking for a piece of Negreanu, who recently asserted that he didn't think the internet generation were too hot in the mixed-games. Negreanu didn't fare so well against this line up, however, as he ended as the sessions biggest loser, dropping over $130k.

Jason Mercier was the second biggest winner from the session, earning $95.6k. Mercier took third on the daily leaderboard with a total win for the day of $77.4k, just behind Isildur1 who eventually posted a $77.8k win after losses in mixed-games from the afternoon and evening. RaulGonzales took 4th with a $44.8k score from the 8-Game and 2-7 Triple Draw tables.

Negreanu was on the wrong end of the day's biggest pot when he got it all in on the turn against joiso in a $250/$500 PLO hand when his Queen high straight lost out to joiso's King high straight in a $103.5k pot.
