Yesterday was the day of the Full Tilt Professionals, as both Gus Hansen, and Viktor "Isildur1" Blom cleaned up at the highstakes limit games, placing one and two on the daily leader board.
Gus's success can be attributed to a huge $620k win after a 7.5hr session of $1500/$3000 2-7 Triple Draw, where he smashed O Fortuna PLS for the +$600k figure over 913 hands. O Fortuna PLS did actually make a comeback to even after falling over $200k behind, before Gus ramped up the pressure and took his opponent on a huge downswing.
Unfortunately for Gus, he didn't enjoy such success at the FLO8 tables, where he dropped over $300k during the course of the day. His biggest loss being a $200k defeat to KPR16 in a three way session with Isildur1 at table Boring during a lunchtime session.
Isildur1, however, was rather more successful at the FLO8 tables, where he has won over $500k over the last 24 hours, his main victim being KPR16. Unlike Hansen, however, Isildur1 lost a six figure sum at the TD tables, mainly during a -$101k heads-up morning session playing Kagome Kagome. Kagome ended as one of the day's biggest winners after this match, with a total haul of $127.1k
Both Hansen and Blom also took six figure sums from KPR16 in a three way session of Hi/Lo which started shortly after midnight, boosting their 24 hour wins to $382k and $377k respectively.
It was also a good day for MalACEsia, who was the only six figure winner at the $400/$800 NLHE tables, with a $237.6k win during a 3.5 hour morning session playing against; Denoking, Call_911, punting-peddler, Rhje, and HelicopterBen82. This session also brought the day's biggest pot:
Denoking rivers the second nuts and he scoops a big $241.2k pot as Call_911 makes a poorly timed bluff
The final six figure winner for the day was Aku1206, who won $150.4k at the $50/$100 PLO tables at PokerStars, playing GSinishtaj heads-up.
