Isildur1 Wins $101,411 at $1k/$2k 8-Game

After a bit of an absence from the highest stakes games online Viktor "Isildur1" Blom was back at PokerStars $1k/$2k 8-Game tables yesterday, and he ended the day with a $101,411 profit.

After a $2k win at the $25/$50 PLO tables yesterday morning Isildur1 suffered a $6.5k loss to RaulGonzales in a very brief 4 hand stint at the $400/$800 8-Game tables.

More than four hours later the pair met up again at another $400/$800 table for a 3/4 hour session. After initially going down around $20k Isildur1 managed to get himself in the black for the session before the pair moved up to a $1k/$2k table shortly before 1pm server time.

Three hours and 658 hands later and Isildur1 left the table with a $104,261 profit for the session and a $101,411 profit for the day. In fact, two hours into the $1k/$2k session Isildur1 had worked up a $150k lead in the match before RaulGonzales made a $90k comeback over the next half an hour. The final half hour, however, belonged to Isildur1 who managed to climb back up to register his first six-figure win this month.

Second on yesterday's leaderboard was young Swiss NLHE phenom Linus "LLinusLLove" Loeliger who played all afternoon and well into the evening at the $25/$50 and $50/$100 tables. He put in 1,235 hands playing for nine hours straight for a total profit of $63,098.

In third we find Timofey "Trueteller" Kuznetsov who won $59,401 after playing two tables of $100/$200 PLO against Sami "Lrslzk" Kelopuro. The pair played an hour and forty minutes late last night. The biggest pot of the day came from this match:

Lrslzk makes all the wrong moves here as he barrels multiple streets with air while Trueteller had flopped top set and turned top full house to take this $43.3k pot


Completing yesterday's top four was Dutch pro Ravenswood13 who managed to extract $38,844 in just half an hour's play in the early hours at the $25/$50 and $50/$100 6max PLO tables.
