Pokerstars High Stakes Showdown
With every week that passes less big names dare to enter this $10,300 heads up shootout. Invairably because Sorel zangbezan24 Mizzi has won this 3 of the last 4 times. The good news for the rest of the field was that he went out first, the bad news was that that left Barryg1 to clean up. Barryg1 is none other than Pokerstars own Barry Greenstein, who also recently final tabled the nightly $150 Grand online and is showing he is devastating in whatever form of poker he plays.
