written by: James under News Comments: Comments Off

Full Tilt Poker’s high stakes room have been extremely exciting since Black Friday, a point proven by Jens “Ingenious89″ Kyllonen only a few nights ago. The Finnish online poker pro played 1,134 hands of 6-Max PLO at the $300 / $600 stakes level, crushing all comers for a grand sum of $861k.

Kyllonen faced of against talent including Esvedra, DrugsOrMe, ronnyr37617, Patrik Antonius and Gus Hansen. Most of Kyllonen’s money, however, came from Andreas “skjervoy” Torbergsen, who gave up an incredible $957k. These represented some of the biggest wins and losses experienced by a single player in a single night online all year.

Before a few evenings ago, Kylonnen was quietly going about his year with a total of $25k in profit. Now, he’s positive by almost $1 million, making him one of the winningest players of 2011.

Kyllonen is perhaps better known as a live tournament player than an online one. He famously took first place at the 2009 edition of PokerStars EPT Copenhagen, which saw him winning $1.1 million.

Torbergsen, a Norwegian online poker pro and CardRunners instructor, was showing huge amounts of promise this year, maintaining a spot in the top 10 for several weeks in a row. This has all changed now that he’s negative by almost $1 million.

Patrik Antonius and Gus Hansen have continued to play virtually every night at Full Tilt since the site exited the US market on Black Friday. Antonius continued to warm up with a $229k victory, while Hansen cooled off again with a $268k loss.

Along with Antonius and Kyllonen, the night’s biggest winners included NoPasaran (up $92k), DrugsOrMe (up $130k) and ronnyr37617 (up $234k).

Aside from Hansen and Torbergsen, the evenings worst players were LokoIsBack (down $29k), genghis888 (down $127k) and Esvedra (down $195k).
