After a couple of below par days on the tables this week, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom had a change of fortune and won close to a million yesterday.
Isildur1 earned the majority of his daily haul at the $500/$1,000 capped Pot Limit Omaha tables, where a six-hour session resulted in an $800k win for The Professional.
The match started and ended with Isildur1 playing OMGClayAiken heads-up. After around an hour of play, the pair was joined by several other high stakes competitors, including samrostan, S3 TRX, Bttech86, pyschobenny and Ingenious89.
Limit specialist SallyWoo made the biggest splash at the nosebleed tables yesterday, with a final haul of $187k.
SallyWoo profited from $2k/$4k Limit Omaha Hi/Lo heads-up sessions with Viktor "Isildur1" Blom. Their first match lasted just short of an hour and resulted in a $247.7k win for SallyWoo. Isildur1 later managed to recoup some of his losses, relieving his opponent of $60k in a three-hour 440-hand battle.
Isildur1 had a rollercoaster of a day, resulting in a net loss of $131k. He began strongly with a $289k win at the $2k/$4k Limit Omaha Hi/Lo tables playing cottonseed1 in a 200-hand 90-minute session. He soon added a further $60k to his funds, playing two tables of $500/$1,000 capped No Limit Hold'em against Trueteller.
Persistence certainly paid off for Gus “The Great Dane” Hansen, who won almost $1.6 million during a 19-hour marathon at the nosebleed limit tables.
Playing $2k/$4k Limit Omaha Hi/Lo almost exclusively, Gus competed across multiple tables, pitting himself against some of the best Hi/Lo players in the world.
The action took place across three tables and featured a host of nosebleed heavyweights, including OMGClayAiken, Isildur1, cottonseed1, KPR16, PostFlopAction, samrostan and SallyWoo.
Viktor “Isildur1” Blom was the biggest winner on a slow day at Full Tilt Poker’s high stakes tables, with a profit of $94k.
His day began poorly as he took on ragen70 just after midnight in a 46-hand session of $500/$1,000 capped No Limit Hold'em and lost a quick $74k before quitting the table. ragen70’s win was enough to make him the day's second biggest winner.
After big wins on Friday and Saturday, Viktor “Isildur1” Blom finished the weekend with close to $1.3m in profits from games at the $500/$1,000 capped Pot Limit Omaha tables.
Isildur1’s winning streak began during a session stretching from Friday night to early Saturday morning, ending the games with over $850k in profit. Having already enjoyed six-figure success at the Omaha Hi/Lo and $500/$1,000 capped No Limit Hold'em tables earlier in the day, Isildur1 and Bttech86 started their regular $500/$1,000 capped Omaha games on Friday evening. They played alone for two and a half hours in a break-even session before being joined by Tom “durrrr” Dwan, Polarizing, trex313 and samrostan across three tables.
