Russian pro Timofey “Trueteller” Kuznetsov topped PokerStars high stakes tables for the second successive day yesterday with a $157,916 profit taken from the PLO and 8-Game tables.

Over half of Trueteller’s winnings came from a 5 minutes heads-up session at a single $100/$200 PLO table against Finnish pro Sami “Lrslzk” Kelopuro. The pair met in the early hours of yesterday morning playing just 45 hands, in which time Trueteller managed to turn an $89,338 profit.

There were no huge pots from this encounter, but a steady stream of five-figure pots, nearly all of which went the Russian’s way. Here is the biggest:

Trueteller gets it in good with top set against Lrslzk’s flush draw. Despite Lrslzk making a flush on the second run of the board, Trueteller still managed to scoop the entire pot as he made full houses on both runs – $45.3k pot.

The rest of Trueteller’s profit came late in the afternoon when he once again took on Mikael “ChaoRen160” Thuritz at the $1k/$2k 8-game tables. In just over an hour, Trueteller prised another $68,577 from the Swedish pro to end the day up $157.9k. Trueteller  has now once again jumped to the top spot on the 2017 leaderboard, up $1.54m for the year.

A way back in 2nd on yesterday’s leaderboard we find Truelove13 with a $33,540 profit which came from 151 hands played at the $200/$400 FLHE 6 max tables, with most coming from an hour long morning session. In third was Russian grinder Katya_18 with a +$33,377 score after 1,761 hands at the $25/$50 and $50/$100 NLHE tables, and the top four was completed by psjebemvas who earned $30,223 from 427 hands at the $25/$50 and $50/$100 PLO tables.
