In the meantime, the biggest pot played so far in 2017 was worth $164,545, with it taking place during a $200/$400 no-limit hold’em game between “wilhasha” (10d-7d) and Phil “takechip” D’Auteuil (9s-8s). Both players were all-in on a 2s-9h-7h-10s board, and after agreeing to run the hand twice, a 4s on the first run followed by a 2h on the second run resulted in the two players splitting the pot.
The biggest outright winning pot of 2017, however, was taken down by Jacob “Lottenice” Rasmussen for $138,365 in February during a game of six-handed $200/$400 no-limit hold’em. Rasmussen (Jc-10c) and his opponent “Bit2Easy” (Jh-8h) were all-in with 5h-9s-8d-10s showing, and after running the river twice, the 4s and 2h saw Rasmussen scoop the bumper pot.
