Mikael "ChaoRen160" Thuritz Last Weeks Biggest Winner - +$360k

It was a decent seven days of highstakes action over at PokerStars last week, with several six-figure winners at a variety of disciplines. The biggest winner between 19th-26th September was Mikael "ChaoRen160" Thuritz who walked away with a $366,003 profit.

Thuritz played on six of the seven days last week, turning a profit every day he played. He twice topped the daily highstakes during the week with his biggest win this week of $122k coming on Friday, with most of it from a single 4 hour session at $1k/$2k 8-Game 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.

Thuritz also took down the biggest pot of the week during this session:

A big three-way pot takes shape between ChaoRen160, joiso, and KidPoker, before joiso raises big after hitting top two pair on the turn. KidPoker gets out of the way as ChaoRen160 pushes all-in with a flopped set of 5's to take this $129.1k pot

The week's second biggest winner was bajskorven87 who won a total of $214,167. All of bajskorven87's profit can be traced to last Wednesday, when he topped the daily leaderboard with a $238.3k win. He won nearly $200k at the $50/$100 NLHE Zoom heads-up tables, with the rest coming from a 6max session at the $100/$200 PLO tables. You can read more about bajskorven87's session here

Another player to make the majority of their weekly winnings last Wednesday was Phil "MrSweets28" Galfond. He won $112.3k from 719 hands of late night 6max PLO. Galfond also made a decent $50/$100 PLO score the following day, adding another $71.7k to his coffers. In total Galfond won $192,754 last week, putting him third on the week's winners list.

Dutch pro Ravenswood13 was the week's 4th six-figure winner earning a total of $187,360 across the week. Most of his profits came from two table topping performances. He was Thursday's biggest winner after making $80.8k from two hours play at the $50/$100 PLO tables, and was Saturday's biggest winner after taking $88k from the 8-Game tables.

The final six-figure winner from last week's games was Viktor "Isildur1" Blom who ended the week up $184,325. Blom found himself winning over $300k between Thursday night and Friday morning, including winning over $200k heads-up against Alexander "joiso" Kostritsyn at the 8-Game tables. However, Blom suffered losses either side of his win which eroded his overall profit to under $185k for the week.
