It has been a good year to be poker pro Alexander "joiso" Kostritsyn (pictured). Despite 2015 being just three weeks old, Kostritsyn is up almost $1 million already at the high-stakes tables, according to HighStakesDB. In fact, he piled up almost $200,000 in profit on Wednesday alone and is the month's biggest winner thus far. We'll focus on Wednesday's session for Kostritsyn right now. According to HighStakesDB, a chunk of his damage came early in the day: "Most of joiso's winnings came from playing $1k/$2k 2-7 Triple Draw heads-up against EireAbufor a little over an hour. The pair switched tables after an hour, with joiso already up $143.6k. They played on for another ten minutes at a new table, with joiso adding a further $26.5k for a $170.1k win." The rest of Kostritsyn's winnings on the day came at the $400/$800 Mixed Game tables. All told, he was up $198,000 on Wednesday on PokerStars and $930,000 for the month of January. HighStakesDB began following Kostritsyn in 2011 and, since then, he has piled up $1.2 million in profit. He is up $844,000 lifetime in PLO and is up $348,000 in Draw Games. He is a breakeven No Limit Hold'em player and has dropped $383,000 in Omaha High-Low. On the live scene, the Russian may be best known for winning the 2008 Aussie Millions Poker Championship for $1.4 million. He won a PokerStars Caribbean Adventure side event in 2014 for $263,000 and has $2.9 million in career live winnings, according to the Hendon Mob, which is good for #8 all-time in Russia.
