Tony G and Leon Tsoukernik Smash the Record for Biggest Online Pot at CoinPoker
Rob Yong, Dusk till Dawn owner and partypoker figurehead, posted the hand on Twitter where both players had pocket aces in a game equivalent to $1,000/$2,000 PLO.
All of the money went in pre flop and the board ran out safe for both players ending in a tie.
Rob Yong queried if this new record will stand as it was played in the realm of crypto poker. We don’t know but given how much it smashed the previous record it is likely to be remembered for a while.
There is also the fact that due to how many private games are running on apps these days that there may actually be a number of pots played that dwarf even this $1.8 million.
The likes of Bill Perkins and Dan Bilzerian are known to play regularly on these sites for mega bucks.
The 2020 record was taken by American Ali Imsirovic playing on GGPoker for a total pot of $974,631.04 with Wiktor “limitless” Malinowski and Michael Addamo just missing out with $842,000.
We look forward to seeing if the profiles of Tony G and Leon Tsoukernik can help to build up these new high-stakes games back to what we saw in the pre-Black Friday era.
