XWINK Baffles Rivals with $284k Win

| by

XWINK plowed his way through 3,769 hands of primarily $300/$600 Pot-Limit Omaha and ended up adding another $284k to his bankroll.

What’s perhaps most impressive about XWINK’s latest session is that he once again did it against some of the game’s best players in Phil Ivey, Patrik Antonius and Andreas “Skjervoy” Torbergsen.

The session was also good for several massive pots as XWINK took down a $421k monster from Skjervoy when he flopped a set of nines.

The pros are apparently having trouble figuring out XWINK’s game as Ivey lost $222k to him, Antonius dropped $135k and Torbergsen in the range of $40k.

XWINK was up by more than $500k on Antonius but he lost the majority of it in the last 20 minutes of the session.

The only player who escaped completely unscathed was NoParasan who took $120k from XWINK.

After smashing his way back onto the online poker scene earlier this month XWINK has gone from $4k to $2 million, lost $1 million in one day, and is now back up to $1.5 million in profit.

Meanwhile Scott “URnotINdanger2” Palmer was the biggest winner last night taking down $362k. The majority of his profits came from $500/$1,000 Heads-Up PLO games against Gus Hansen and DrugsOrMe.

Hansen would make a nice recovery against several other players, however, and added $117k to his 2011-best $2.9 million in profit.

Some of the other big winners included Justin “ZeeJustin” Bonomo on PokerStars (+$148k) and NoParasan (+$120k) on Full Tilt.

DrugsOrMe was hit the hardest last night dropping $325k. Skjervoy (+$274k), Phil Ivey (-$222k), Kanu7 (-$149k), Patrik Antonius (-$135k) and Daniel “Kid Poker” Negreanu (-$108k) were also in the losing column.
