  • Online Railbird: "Educa-p0ker" was the biggest online winner from Jan. 8-20 with $366,366 in profit.

This week's Online Railbird Report, which captured the high-stakes cash game action on PokerStars, saw "Educa-p0ker" come on strong to not only finish as the biggest winner with $366,366 in profit – which came from 13,522 hands over 58 sessions – but also give him the early lead on the 2016 leaderboard.

On the flip side, "Aron0621" was the biggest loser from January 8-20 after dropping $208,963 in 2,632 hands over 41 sessions, while Alex "Kanu7" Millar was the second-biggest loser down $77,179 in 6,545 hands spread across 60 sessions.

Millar Turns Bad Day Around at Expense of "wilhasha"

On Saturday, January 9, a big $100/$200 no-limit hold'em heads-up match broke out between Millar and "wilhasha." At the time, Millar was down around $90,000 on the day, but he managed to win it all back over the course of three hours, which included winning the biggest pot of the day.

It happened when "wilhasha" ($42,263.66) opened for $600 from button and then called when Millar ($92,491.80) three-bet to $1,680. The {9-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} flop saw Millar lead out for $839,50, "wilhasha" called, and the {7-Hearts} appeared on the turn.

Millar check-called a bet of $5,037 and then checked the {2-Hearts} river. "wilhasha" bet $11,200, Millar check-raised to $39,533.25, and "wilhasha" called off for $34,707.16 total to create an $84,527.32 pot.

"wilhasha" held the {9-Spades}{10-Hearts}, but he discovered he was on the wrong end of a cooler as Millar had flopped a full house with the {5-Spades}{5-Diamonds}.

Meanwhile, Timofey "Trueteller" Kuznetsov was actually Saturday's biggest winner after banking $141,900, of which $92,000 came from the no-limit hold'em tables and roughly $50,000 from the $100/$200 pot-limit Omaha tables.

"wilhasha" Gets Revenge on Millar

On Monday, January 11, "wilhasha" and Millar were back at it, but this time the Swede came out the victor winning $158,900 over the course of 10 hours. According to HighStakesDB, the match was even for the first six hours, but after that "wilhasha" began to pull away, which included winning the two biggest pots of the day.

Hand #1: Millar ($79,406.19) opened the button for $460 with the {q-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}], "wilhasha" ($35,758.96) called with the {10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}, and the flop came down {4-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}. "wilhasha" checked his two pair, and then called when Millar, who flopped an open-ender, bet $1,009.80.

The {5-Diamonds} turn saw "wilhasha," who picked up a flush draw, check-call another bet, this time $4,406.40, and the {9-Diamonds} peeled off on the river. It was an action card as "wilhasha," who checked for a third time, made his flush, and Millar, who bet $8,812.80, made his straight.

"wilhasha" check-raised all in for $29,882.76 total, and he claimed a $71,517.92 pot after Millar paid him off.

Hand #2: "wilhasha" ($35,527.69) raised to $600 on the button and was met by a three-bet to $1,680 from Millar ($44,444.31). "wilhasha" pushed back with a four-bet to $4,300, Millar five-bet all in, and "wilhasha" called off to create a $71,055.38 pot.

"wilhasha": {q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}
Millar: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}

It was a flip, and the two agreed to run it twice. Unfortunately for Millar, he came up empty on both {5-Spades}{10-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} run out as well as the {8-Spades}{3-Spades}{2-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{k-Spades} on the second.

"Educa-p0ker" Takes From "wilhasha"

On Saturday, January 16, the week's biggest winner, "Educa-p0ker," and "wilhasha" tangled at the $100/$200 no-limit hold'em tables for nearly eight hours. Over the course of 4,160 hands, "Educa-p0ker" managed to win a hefty $213,800. Surprisingly, he did lose the biggest pot of the day, which was just one of three to cross the six-figure mark in the match.

It happened when "wilhasha" ($55,762.36) opened for $600 and "Educa-p0ker" ($74,101.64) three-bet to $2,200. From there, "wilhasha" four-bet to $6,300 and then called when "Educa-p0ker" five-bet to $13,900.

The {8-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{3-Hearts} flop saw "wilhasha" call a bet of $8,300 and then he called off for $33,562.36 after "Educa-p0ker" shoved the {4-Clubs} turn.

"Educa-p0ker": {a-Hearts}{a-Spades}
"wilhasha": {j-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

"wilhasha" had flopped a flush to pull ahead of "Educa-p0ker's" aces, but the latter could still win with a heart on the river. They ran it twice, but neither the {4-Diamonds} on the first nor {J-Diamonds} on the second helped "Educa-p0ker" and he watched the 4111,524.72 pot pushed to his opponent.

On Sunday, the two were back at it, and once again "Educa-p0ker" emerged victorious, this time taking $113,200 from "wilhasha" over 1,806 hands. Amazingly, despite the big loss, "wilhasha" won the biggest pot of the day.

It happened when "Educa-p0ker" ($53,238.98) raised to $490 from the button and "wilhasha" ($52,976.77) three-bet to $2,100. "Educa-p0ker" made it $6,300 to go, "wilhasha" called, and the flop came down {9-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}. Both players checked, the {10-Spades} peeled off on the turn, and "wilhasha" check-called a bet of $8,188.70.

When the {J-Diamonds} completed the board on the river, "wilhasha" shipped for $38,488.07 and "Educa-p0ker" called with the {q-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for a rivered straight. Unfortunately for him, "wilhasha" had rivered a flush with the {10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} to lay claim to the $105,953.54 pot.
