RaulGonzales Hits Straight Back with $367k Win Over Isildur1

Just as it looked as though Viktor "Isildur1" Blom might pull away from his regular nosebleeds sparring partner RaulGonzales after a $286k win on Monday, Raul paid him back with interest yesterday, winning $367,55 in just two hours.

The pair met up at the $200/$400 PLO tables yesterday morning where they two-tabled for ninety minutes, in which time RaulGonzales managed to win a combined $318.7k in what was an absolute bloodbath of a match in which Raul's profit graph trajectory almost plots a vertical line as he won big pot after big pot at both tables.

Oddly enough, the only six-figure pot of the match actually went Isildur1's way, although the only reason he wasn't on the end of any six-figure pot losses himself has probably got more to do with the fact that he rarely managed to build his reload stack much above the $40k buy-in during the match. Here is that single six-figure pot,

With RaulGonzales already $160k up, Isildur1 temprorarily curtails the onslaught as he turns a full house and is paid off in full by his opponent in this $116.2k pot


After his PLO drubbing, Isildur1 took a short comfort break, but was back approximately 15 minutes later and the pair moved over to the $1k/$2k 8-Game tables where RaulGonzales won another $48.4k in a little over 20 minutes, after which Isildur1 promptly quit the tables after suffering his worst defeat in some time.

Second on yesterday's high stakes leaderboard was Spanish NLHE phenom Andres "Educa-p0ker" Artinano who had to work hard table hopping the $25/$50 and $50/$100 tables for over 1.8k hands to earn himself a $30,137 profit.

Third place went to Fiilismies who made $17,572 from 133 hands of $25/$50 PLO, and rounding out the top four was XD89lol<3 who played for close to six hours at the $100/$200 8-Game tables to accumulate his $13,326 win.
