SamRostan & Isildur1 Yesterday's Biggest Winners

The biggest winners from yesterday's high stakes games over at PokerStars were Macau based pro Chun Lei "SamRostan" Zhou, and Swedish phenom Viktor "Isildur1" Blom.

Both players made the majority of their profit at the highest stakes tables at PokerStars, the $1k/$2k 8-Game tables.

Isildur1 hasn't been seen at the highest stakes for a few weeks, instead concentrating at the $100/$200 mixed game tables. However, after winning around $11k at the lower stakes yesterday he moved up to the $1k/$2k tables shortly after a big game had started out featuring spaise411, Alex "BiatchPeople" Luneau, and Timofey "Trueteller" Kuznetsov. Shortly after SamRostan and Alex "josio" Kostritsyn joined the table.

Isildur1 was the biggest winner at this table, winning $77.7k in just 28 minutes - with practically all of that profit coming from taking down the day's biggest pot:

Some fairly loose play here as both Isildur1 and Trueteller go all-in preflop with big stack SamRostan coming along for the ride. Unusually Trueteller's AAxx actually has the least equity preflop with the other two both having semi-connecting double suited hands. Isildur1 manages to win on both runs of the board, making trip Kings on the first board and rivering a flush on the second board to take this $101.6k pot

Isildur1 was not so lucky at his next table where he lost $40k in just 42 hands at $1k/$2k table Kochera III. This is where SamRostan enjoyed his biggest win, earning $58k from 70 hands after an hour's play at the table. He also won $40k at table Florya II playing against Trueteller, spaise111, Isildur1, and Patrik "Fake Love888" Antonius.

After the big 8-Game sessions SamRostan emerged as the day's biggest winner with an $84.6k profit, with Isildur1 in second with a $52.4k win.

The next two biggest winners also came from the $1k/$2k 8-Game tables with Matt "MUSTAFABET" Ashton taking 3rd after just 16 hands played in which he won $26k, and joiso hit fourth spot with a $25.1k profit after 346 hands played.
