Isildur up $900k in 4 days

Isildur1 is nearing his highpoint of the year after winning another $225k yesterday

After suffering a million dollar downswing last week, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom has worked his way back, winning $900k over the last four days. He topped yesterday's highstakes leaderboard with a $225k win at the PLO tables.

Isildur1 lost a little at the 2-7 Triple Draw tables, and won a little in an 8-Game match, but the overwhelming majority of the action came at the $100/$200 and $200/$400 PLO tables.

His biggest match came heads-up at the $200/$400 PLO tables against cumicon. The pair played for around two hours, made up with two hour long sessions separated by an hour break, with Blom winning $145k in total from the early afternoon session. Isildur1 was ahead the whole way, although it was an incredibly swingy match. Isildur1 ran up a $245k lead within the first half an hour, only to have almost the entire lead eradicated in just 10 minutes, after cumicon hit a couple of big hands in quick succession. After their hour break, Isildur1 started as he had in the first session, accumulating a $240k lead within 3/4 of an hour later, only for cumicon to make a $100k comeback during the final half an hour of play.

The biggest pots of the day came from these games:

cumicon flops top two pair, turns top full house, and is able to extract value on both the turn and river from Isildur1 to take this $118.2k pot

A few hours later, and Isildur1 was back at the $200/$400 PLO tables, where he won $88k playing againts Ike Haxton in a 90 minute heads-up match.
