In the biggest hand of the week (there was one bigger, but that one ended in a chop), Tollerene opened the button for $680 and Kuznetsov called.

With the pot at $1,320, Kuznetsov checked on {5-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}. Tollerene answered with a bet of $1,005.90 and Kuznetsov called.

The {7-Clubs} hit the turn and Kuznetsov checked again. Tollerene bet pot for almost $3,500 and Kuznetsov check-raised to $13,795.20. Tollerene called to grow the pot to $30,922.20, leaving himself $13,251.34 behind.

With the {6-Clubs} completing the board, Kuznetsov shoved all in for $19,000. Tollerene called for his remaining $13,000 and scooped the monster pot showing {2-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{5-Spades} for a straight. Kuznetsov had nothing but {4-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{Q-Hearts} for two pair.

They decided to run the turn and river twice. Both times fourth and fifth street came in favor of Tollerene; {9-Spades}{8-Clubs} and {6-Clubs}{7-Spades}.

With now $6,570 in the middle, according to the playback, the flop came {10-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}. Tollerene bet pot and Wies shoved all in for just over $23,000. Tollerene called all in for $18,178.

The {7-Hearts} on the turn helped Wies in the lead but the {2-Diamonds} on the river counterfeited his two pair and Tollerene took it down.

Online High-Stakes Action the Last Week

As said, Ben Tollerene came out on top winning a little over $100,000. Matthew Ashton had another good week, winning just over $60,000. Alexander Kostritsyn, András Németh and Dan Cates were just some of the other players this week that had positive results over the last seven days.

Kuznetsov was this week’s biggest losing player, ending just over $70,000 in the red. He was joined by [B]Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky[/B] and [B]Gus “broksi” Hansen[/B]. The latter had the intention of making his return to live poker he told PokerNews in an exclusive interview last year, but has so far not made good on that promise.
