Niki “RealAndyBeal” Jedlicka wins $511,000 on PokerStars

Niki "RealAndyBeal" JedlickaOn Thursday evening (October 21st 2010), Niki Jedlicka dominated the high-stakes action on PokerStars finishing the night with a profit of $511k. Jedlicka is an Austrian professional poker player and first hit the headlines a few years ago when he was playing on Full Tilt Poker using the online poker name ‘KaiBuxxe‘ but now he mainly plays in the high-stakes cash games on PokerStars where he uses alias ‘RealAndyBeal‘.

Jedlicka’s opponent for the evening was Cardrunners instructor Andreas “Skjervoy” Torbergson who many might remember from winning $845k on Full Tilt Poker just a few weeks ago in one session.

The players were battling it out in the Pot-Limit Omaha games and Skjervoy’s luck was out as he dropped $530k that evening, $511k of it going straight into Jedlicka’s pockets.

One of the largest pots of the session was worth $100,396 which Jedlicka was the winner of. Jedlicka was holding KAA2 whereas Skjervoy was holding Q84Q and Skjervoy found himself in the lead with trip Queens after the flop of Q78. There was then a bet, raise and call before the turn card of A was revealed to give Jedlicka the lead with trip Aces but both players ended up all-in and the river card was the 7, meaning both players finished up with a Full House, but Jedlicka’s Aces over Sevens gave him the $100,396 pot.

Jedlicka now finds himself up $380k for the year on PokerStars whereas Skjervoy is still one of the biggest winners of 2010. On PokerStars he is up almost $900,00 despite this heavy losing session, and on Full Tilt Poker he also has a profit for the year – a staggering $2.5 million.
