Some Loeliger Love

According to HighStakesDB, no one did better in March online poker cash games than Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky, who won $264,686 in 4,561 hands over 35 sessions on PokerStars. That gave him an average win of $58.03 per hand.

In the biggest pot of the month, which didn’t involve Sulsky, it was heads-up action at a $200/$400 no-limit hold’em table between Jonas “OtB_RedBaron” Mols ($78,712.85) and Timofey “Trueteller” Kuznetsov ($171,173.26) on Monday, March 12.

It began when Mols limped holding the K♦K♠ and Kuznetsov raised to $3,200 with the A♦A♣. Mols limp-raised to $9,800, Kuznetsov made it $26,600, and Mols moved all in. Kuznetsov called and the cooler resulted in a $157,425.70 pot.

The duo agreed to run it twice, and much to the dismay of Kuznetsov, two bad beats were in store. Both the 3♥K♣4♣2♦6♠ first runout and the 6♥K♥9♦7♥3♠ second one delivered Mols a king, and he scooped the pot.

It was also another good month for Linus “LLinusLLove” Loeliger, who was February’s biggest online poker winner with $262,854. He nearly matched that in March winning $241,490 in 10,001 hands over 147 sessions. Loeliger is currently 2018’s biggest online winner up $569,135 in 26,756 hands spread across 399 sessions.

In his biggest pot of the month, Kuznetsov ($68,690.29) raised to $1,100 holding the Q♣7♣ and then called when Loeliger ($72,602.71) three-bet to $4,200 holding the A♥Q♦. The 5♣J♦A♠ flop saw Loeliger lead out for $2,009.07 and Kuznetsov call to see the A♣ turn.

Loeliger bet $7,443.99 with trips, Kuznetsov called with his flush draw, and the 9♦ completed the board on the river. Loeliger bet again, this time $18,020.06, and then called when Kuznetsov bluffed by moving all in for $55,037.23. Ship the $137,380.58 pot to Loeliger.

Sitting just behind him on the yearly leaderboard are “JayP-AA” ($316,630 in 136 sessions/15,354 hands) and Alexander “joiso” Kostritsyn ($291,585 in 108 sessions/9,269 hands).

Bad Month for “BERRI SWEET”

On the other end of the spectrum, no one lost more in March online poker than “BERRI SWEET,” who lost the $150,658 he won last month and then some. He dropped $347,149 in 6,749 hands over 80 sessions for an average loss of $51.44 per hand.

Another big loser was Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, who lost $229,949 in 10,028 hands over 101 sessions. That put Blom down $318,570 on the year, which makes him the second biggest online loser in 2018.

In one big pot he lost, Blom ($62,154.25) was playing heads-up $200/$400 pot-limit Omaha against “AmSoGood” ($52,514.50). “AmSoGood”, who held the A♣9♦9♠J♠, raised the button to $1,200 and then called when Blom, who held the Q♣K♣Q♦3♥, made it $3,600 to go.

When the flop came down Q♥5♠10♣, Blom bet $4,800 with top set and “AmSoGood” called with his open-ended straight draw. On the 6♦ turn, Blom bet $12,800 and “AmSoGood” called to see the 8♥.

Blom checked and then called when “AmSoGood,” who made his nut straight, moved all in for $31,314.50. With that, Blom watched the $105,029 pot pushed to his opponent.

The only player doing worse than him is “ImagineKing,” who lost $85,542 in March. That put him down $762,061 (305 sessions/24,622 hands) in the first three months of the year.
