The Online Railbird Report: Tollerene Week's Biggest Winner; Haxton Drops a Million

Posted 3 days 13 hours ago by Chad Holloway

In last week’s Online Railbird Report we told you about “Rhje,”, who banked $1,014,573 to finish as the week’s biggest winner. It was another good week for the mystery player as he won $474,483 in 2,918 hands over 21 sessions. The only other player to do better was Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene (pictured), who won $544,972 in 990 hands over 12 sessions.

Other winners included “proudlikeagoat” ($374,757 in 16 sessions/1,463 hands), “punting-peddler” ($344,660 in 12 sessions/2,160 hands), Gus Hansen ($271,951 in 31sessions/3,241 hands), Niklas “ragen70” Heinecker (+$242,911 in 47 sessions/7,419 hands), “HelicopterBen82” (+$207,564 in 28 sessions/2,451 hands) and Viktor “Isildur1” Blom ($184,467 in 28 sessions/2,572 hands).

On the other end of the spectrum, Isaac “luvtheWNBA” Haxton was the week’s biggest loser after dropping a massive $964,478 in 1,243 hands over 11 session – an average loss of $775.92 per hand. He was joined in the loser column by “O Fortuna PLS” (-$617,708 in 17 sessions/3,105 hands), “MalACEsia” (-$488,990 in 22 sessions/3,578 hands), “Denoking” (-$477,384 in 7 sessions/774 hands) and Alex “IReadYrSoul” Millar (-$308,487 in 9 sessions/1,018 hands).

“Trueteller” Banks $630,900 in Thursday Action

On Thursday, Aug. 8, “Trueteller” emerged as the day’s biggest winner after banking $630,900 playing no limit hold’em on Full Tilt Poker. He began the day by taking $68,000 from “samrostan” in a three-and-a-half hour match at the $500/$1,000 CAP NLHE tables. He followed that up with four tables of $400/$800 NLHE against some of the game's best, and he made $346,000 of his winnings during that session. Much of that came courtesy of winning the day’s biggest pot.

In the hand, action was three-handed when “Trueteller” ($280,342) opened for 1,600 and “punting-peddler” ($101,647) three-bet to $7,200 from the small blind. After the big folded, “Trueteller” called, the flop came down {q-Clubs}{a-Spades}{3-Clubs} and “punting-peddler” bet $8,800. "Trueteller" called, bringing the {7-Hearts} on the turn, and “Trueteller” called a bet worth $16,800. When the {J-Clubs} completed the board on the river, “punting-peddler” moved all in for $68,847 and “Trueteller” snap-called. “Punting-peddler” tabled the {8-Diamonds}{7-Spades} for a pair of sevens, but “Trueteller” took the $204,243 pot with the {a-Clubs}{5-Clubs} for the nut flush.

It was also in that game that “proudlikeagoat” won $337,100 before finishing the day with $415,100 in profit. In his biggest pot, action was six-handed when “Trueteller” ($393,815) opened for $2,000 from the cutoff only to have “Call_911” ($98,339) three-bet to $7,200 from the button. “Proudlikeagoat” ($101,169.50) then four-bet to $164,000 from the small blind, “Trueteller” got out of the way and “Call_911” shoved all in. “Proudlikeagoat” called and the cards were turned up.

“proudlikeagoat”: {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds}
“Call_911”: {7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}

“Call_911” held a decent pocket pair, but “proudlikeagoat” had him crushed with the ladies. The two agreed to run it twice, but neither the {j-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{10-Diamonds} on the first run nor the {9-Spades}{2-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{2-Spades}{4-Diamonds} on the second helped “Call_911” and he watched the entire $199,925 pot pushed to “proudlikeagoat.”

“Trueteller” Wins $203,000 in 132 Hands

“Trueteller” kept the ball rolling on Friday, Aug. 9 by winning $203,000 in just 132 hands of $400/$800 NLHE. That was enough to make him the biggest winner for the second day in a row. Not surprisingly, he took down the biggest pot of the day.

In the hand, “Trueteller” ($167,164.60) opened for $2,400 under the gun and Tollerene ($134,081.89) three-bet to $8,000 from the cutoff. The rest of the players folded and then “Trueteller” called before check-calling a bet of $10,400 on the {2-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{4-Hearts} flop. “Trueteller” check-called another bet, this time $28,400, on the {7-Hearts} turn and then checked for a third time on the {7-Diamonds} river. Tollerene shoved for $87,281.89 and “Trueteller” called. Tollerene showed the {q-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for a bluff, but “Trueteller” sniffed it out and called with the {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}, sending him a pot worth $269,961.

Another winner on Friday was “MalACEsia,” who won $154,100 in the game. In his biggest pot, which was also the second biggest of the day, “HelicopterBen82” ($146,975.65) opened for $2,000 on the button and “MalACEsia” ($111,576) called from the big blind, bringing about a {9-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{7-Spades} flop. “MalACEsia” checked, “HelicopterBen82” bet $3,600 and “MalACEsia” check-raised to $10,800. “HelicopterBen82” proceeded to three-bet to $24,800 and then called when “MalACEsia” moved all in for $109,576.

“HelicopterBen82” flipped over the {9-Spades}{7-Clubs} for two pair, but it was no good as “MalACEsia” had flopped the nuts with the {6-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}. The {a-Clubs} turn failed to pair the board for “HelicopterBen82” and so did the {10-Clubs}. With that, he watched the $224,149 pot pushed to his opponent.

Somebody “Call_911” Because He’s Burning Up the Dance Floor

On Sunday, Aug. 11, “Call_911” finished as the day’s biggest winner after profiting $382,000, most of which came in 101 hands of $400/$800 NLHE against the likes of Haxton and “MalACEsia.” There were only two pots over $200,000 on Sunday, and it’s no surprise “Call_911” won them both. Have a look:

Hand #1: In a six-handed game, “Call_911” ($327,629.56) opened for $2,400 from the hijack and Haxton ($124,097) defended from the big blind. The {3-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} flop saw Haxton check-call a bet of $4,270 before checking the {6-Spades} turn. “Call_911” took the opportunity to bet $10,248 only to have Haxton wake up with a check-raise to $31,600. “Call_911” not only called that raise, he also called Haxton’s shove of $85,827 on the {8-Hearts} river. Haxton revealed the {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs} for a turned set, but it was no good as “Call_911” tabled the {5-Hearts}{7-Hearts} to claim the $249,191 pot.

Hand #2:

Tollerene’s Back

Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene hasn’t been making much noise in the online realm as of late, but that changed on Monday, Aug. 12 when he topped the daily leader board with a $322,100 win at the $400/$800 NLHE table. It came from a 320-hand heads-up match against “Denoking” in the early morning hours and included winning some hefty pots.

In one notable hand, “Denoking” ($165,959.60) opened for $2,000 and then shoved when Tollerene ($74,033.39) raised to $6,400. Tollerene called with the {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}, which was well out in front of “Denoking’s” {a-Spades}{j-Clubs}. The {3-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{7-Clubs} board gave Tollerene the win, but “Denoking” had a shot at half the pot as the two agreed to run it twice. Unfortunately for him, the {4-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{k-Spades} on the second run came up empty and he watched the entire $148,066 pot shipped to Tollerene.
