Isildur1 Wins $457k at $1k/$2k Mixed Games

Watch out high stakes fans, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom is back on an upswing, and after taking $457k at PokerStars $1k/$2k 8-Game tables last night his bankroll has swollen by well over half a million dollars since Monday morning.

Isildur1 won a grand total of $456,874 from playing heads-up at a single table of $1k/$2k mixed games against German pro RaulGonzales in what turned into a 13.5 hour epic spanning 3,212 hands.

The pair had met for 25 minutes prior to the $1k/$2k match at the $400/$800 8-Game tables where RaulGonzales won $27,257 before they agreed to move up in stakes. Isildur1 still had over $100k of profit from the previous day and clearly fancied his chances at the higher limits, and it would prove to be so - although he took a few attempts before he managed to secure his big win.

After moving to the $1k/$2k tables it took Isildur1 two hours to reach the +$100k mark in the match, although just an hour later he had lost it all back again. Over the course of the next three hours Isildur1 marched forward once again, going up $270k in the match. Once again, however, he was to lose it all back again as he dropped some $300k over the following three hours. It looked at this stage as though this would cut short Isildur1's latest upswing. Remarkably though Blom was able to rally once again, and for the remaining five hours of the match, which ran until 4am this morning, Isildur1 hit a +$500k upswing to leave the match up $456.9k.

Second on yesterday's leaderboard was underO who earned $40,881 at the $25/$50 and $50/$100 NLHE tables. Third place went to PLO reg fjutekk who won $31,085 after a long day at the $25/$50 tables, and fourth went to chipov4ik with a $24,863 profit coming from the Limit Omaha Hi/Lo tables. His biggest win came from $300/$600 table Veritas where he played against WithColor, Isildur1, Deldar182, and generdir.
