  • Alex "Kanu7" Millar week's biggest @PokerStars online winner. Read it in the Online Railbird Report.

In this week's edition of the Online Railbird Report, which highlights the high-stakes online action at PokerStars, Alex "Kanu7" Millar, who has been the biggest loser two weeks in a row, recovered by finishing as this week's biggest winner.

It came after he banked $160,108 in 2,397 hands over 15 sessions. It was no doubt nice for the UK-based player, but he is still down $561,921 on the year, which is more than twice as much as any other player.

Others who did well this week were "TheFish77" (+$133,734 in 3 sessions/935 hands), Mike "gordo16" Gorodinsky (+$83,670 in 39 sessions/4,350 hands), and "JLlama" (+$80,639 in 19 sessions/1,744 hands).

On the flip side, it was a bad week for Daniel "w00ki3z." Cates, who lost $191,401 in 3,920 hands over 26 sessions. Others who finished in the red were "I_Mr_U_Bean" (-$177,185 in 2 sessions/819 hands), "wilhasha" (-$152,412 in 13 sessions/2,388 hands) and "candela2005" (-$124,870 in 71 sessions/1,188 hands).

"TheFish777" Finishes as Friday's Biggest Winner

On Friday, February 5, "TheFish777" finished as the day's biggest winner after banking $133,700 in 8.5 hours of $100/$200 pot-limit Omaha where he played against the likes of Jason Mercier, Jens "Jeans89" Kyllönen, and "I_Mr_U_Bean," just to name a few.

According to HighStakesDB, "TheFish777" was up $220,000 at one point, but ultimately ended the match a $174,200, which was whittled down a bit due to later losses.

In one of the biggest hands he played, action was five handed when "TheFish777" ($217,375.55) opened for $700 from the cutoff and "St1ckman" ($16,331.20) three-bet to $2,200 from the big blind. "TheFish777" responded by making it $6,700 and then quickly called when "St1ckman" five-bet all in.

"TheFish777": {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}
"St1ckman": {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{6-Hearts}

It was aces versus kings, and the former held up after the board ran out {3-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{j-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} to give "TheFish777" the $32,762.40 pot.

While "St1ckman" lost that pot, he did manage to win the Friday's biggest pot. It happened at a three-handed table when "St1ckman" ($61,913.14) raised to $700 on the button and Timofey "Trueteller" Kuznetsov ($29,146.03) three-bet to $2,420 from the small blind. "Aron0621" called from the big, "St1ckman" came along, and all three players saw a flop of {8-Hearts}{2-Spades}{6-Diamonds}. Two checks saw "St1ckman" bet $4,700, Kuznetsov check-raised to $21,475, and "Aron0621" folded. "St1ckman" moved all in and Kuznetsov called off his remaining $5,251.03.

"St1ckman": {8-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}
Kuznetsov: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{k-Spades}

"St1ckman" flopped good to pull ahead of Kuznetsov's aces, but the latter had outs. The two agreed to run it twice, but neither the {q-Spades}{k-Clubs} on the first nor {3-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} on the second helped Kuznetsov, who watched the $65,452.06 pot pushed to "St1ckman."

Millar Gets Revenge on "wilhasha"

As HighStakesDB points out, Miller was a big loser in January courtesy of "wilhasha." Fortunately for him, he was able to recoup some of his money after winning $152,500 on Sunday, which is when the two played nearly 2,400 hands of $100/$200 no-limit hold'em over 6.5 hours.

That was enough to make him the day's biggest winner by a more than 2-1 margin over Gorodinsky, who finished a $70,800 winner. Others who fared well on Sunday were Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky and Mercier, who won $52,200 and $46,600 respectively.

Not surprisingly, Millar was able to win some big pots, though not the day's biggest. Have a look:

Hand #1: Millar ($117,286.84) raised to $460 holding the {a-Diamonds}{5-Spades} and then called when "wilhasha" ($49,996) three-bet to $1,500. The {5-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{6-Spades} flop saw Millar call a bet of $1,500 from "wilhasha," and then both players checked the {5-Clubs} turn.

The {3-Spades} river was gin for Millar, who snap-called when "wilhasha" shoved all in for $46,996. Ship the $99,992 pot to Millar.

Hand #2: "wilhasha" ($49,660.20) raised to $600 and was met by a three-bet to $1,680 from Millar ($64,442.12). "wilhasha" then four-bet to $5,000, Millar five-bet to $10,000, and "wilhasha" called to see the {5-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{2-Hearts} flop. Millar led out for $9,999, "wilhasha" called, and the {8-Spades} appeared on the turn. Millar checked, "wilhasha" bet $5,550, and Millar check-raised all in. "wilhasha" called off his remaining $24,111.20 and just like that there was $99,320.40 in the pot.

"wilhasha": {k-Diamonds}{k-Spades}
Millar: {5-Clubs}{5-Spades}

Millar got lucky to flop a set, and "wilhasha" needed to catch a king on the river, which was run twice. The {7-Clubs} on the first didn't do it, and neither did the {Q-Diamonds} on the second.

Hand #3: Millar ($51,351.36) raised to $460 with the {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}, "wilhasha" ($67,658.52) three-bet to $1,500 holding the {j-Spades}{7-Spades}, and "wilhasha" four-bet to $4,200. Not to be outdone, Millar five-bet to $10,000 and "wilhasha" just called to see the {7-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} flop.

"wilhasha" bet $6,350, Millar called, and the {9-Spades} appeared on the turn. Millar called another bet with his flush draw, this time $15,100, and the {K-Diamonds} completed the board on the river. "wilhasha" moved all in and Millar, who missed his flush but paired his king, called off for $20,001.36. "wilhasha" tabled trips and was pushed the $102,902.72 pot.
