RaulGonzales Wins $73k from Isildur1 at 8-Game

Over the past couple of weeks Viktor "Isildur1" Blom has been on a slow but steady decline, losing close to $1/4m, with most of it to German foe RaulGonzales, including $73.5k from yesterday's 8-Game sessions.

The day actually started quite well for Blom who won their first encounter at the $400/$800 tables. The pair played for an hour yesterday afternoon with Isildur1 winning $30,623 from 220 hands.

After a short comfort break they started playing again, but this time at the $1k/$2k tables, and from here RaulGonzales took over, winning $68,950 from a 40 minute session, and then a further $34,759 from a second $1k/$2k session which began 50 minutes after the previous session had ended, and ran for 178 hands.

RaulGonzales ended as yesterday's biggest winner, although he dropped a little from a brief but eventful $100/$200 PLO session which ran alongside the last 8-Game session.

The PLO match only lasted 16 hands and was played heads-up against JayP-AA but during the those 16 hands there were five $80k pots and even more $40k pots. Therefore, despite winning three $80k pots in three hands, RaulGonzales actually ended up lost just over $20k from the 16 hands played, making his total profit for the day at $52,675

In third place we find Dutch pro Jordi "prot0" Urlings who made a $24,129 profit from three hours at the 6max $50/$100 NLHE tables yesterday afternoon where he played against the likes of limitless, Alexandros "mexican22" Kolonias, Luke "Bit2Easy" Reeves, NLZWERVERNL, and dean_nolan1. Rounding out the top four from yesterday's high stakes games was JayP-AA whose $20,053 profit came from the earlier reviewed $100/$200 PLO heads-up match against RaulGonzales.
