High Stakes Games & The Micros React to Full Tilt Takeover News

By , Rakeback.com Poker News Editor

The poker world has spent much of the week rejoicing at the fact that PokerStars has purchased the assets belonging to Full Tilt Poker, and thus players with Full Tilt accounts will be reimbursed.

The news of the deal took place on Tuesday, and probably not coincidentally Wednesday turned out to be arguably the biggest day of the year in terms of high-stakes action on PokerStars. It's quite likely that players at that level decided to celebrate the money they'll soon receive by sitting at nosebleed tables.

Throughout the day, several Pot-Limit Omaha and No-Limit Hold'em tables ran at stakes of $200/$400. By the time play was over, 9 players won over $100,000, and similarly 9 players lost over $100,000. The biggest winner was "L0ve2playU" who won roughly $468,000.

High stakes players aren't the only ones celebrating the Full Tilt deal this week. Our friends at The Micros released a web comic on the topic as well (click to enlarge):
