Another $338k PLO Win for cumicon

For the second day running, highstakes PLO regular cumicon has beaten Viktor "Isildur1" Blom for $338k at the $200/$400 tables.

Although the margin of victory was incredibly similar (cumicon won over $339k on Saturday, and over $338k yesterday), the way in which the match went down was very different. No big swings either way, no hour upon hour of end to end play - cumicon was done and dusted in just one hour of four tabling the Swedish pro.

cumicon won at three of the four tables played, with two big table wins of $219k and $120k making up his profit for the day. As ever between these two, there seemed to be an all-in every other hand, with cumicon getting the better of his opponent in the majority of these encounters, and also getting the better of him in a significant number of smaller five-figure pots. However, they shared the honour of winning the biggest pot of the day, as both secured a $200k pot during the game:

cumicon is a slight favourite when the money goes in and he improves his hand on the turn before making a straight on the river to take this $200k pot

Conversely it's Isildur1 with the slight advantage on the flop here, as with cumicon's big pot he also improves his hand on both the turn and the river to take this $200k pot

Isildur1 managed to recoup some of his losses a little later on, winning $95.8k from a five-hour heads-up battle against RaulGonzales at the $1k/2k 2-7 TD tables, and he had also won $68k earlier in the day from Alexander "joiso" Kostritsyn at the 8-Game and TD tables, so ended the day down $175.2k

Nobody else came anywhere near a six-figure win yesterday, with Phil "RaiseOnce" Ivey coming second on the daily leaderboard with a $37.2k win from a length session of 8-Game against Trueteller.
