Isildur1 Wins $79k After Omaha Hi/Lo Wins

Picture courtesy:

Viktor "Isildur1" Blom topped PokerStars high stakes leaderboard for the second time in three days yesterday after wins at the FLO8 and 8-Game tables enabled him to end the day a $79k winner, although at one point it looked as though it might be a lot more.

Isildur1's first victories came at the $400/$800 8-Game tables. He played two sessions against , an hour mid-morning and half an hour mid-afternoon, where he won a combined $15.5k. Isildur1 also made a small profit against RaulGonzales at the Limit Omaha Hi/Lo tables. After beating Isildur1 for $28k during some morning sessions at the $300/$600 FLO8 tables, Blom was able to win back $33k during a mid-afternoon session.

Isildur1's biggest win of the day, however, came against Dutch pro Ravenswood13 during an evening session at athe $1/$2k FLO8 tables. The pair played for three hours and during the first hour Isildur1 ran super-hot to take more than a $200k lead in the match. For most of the next couple of hours Ravenswood13 would make a decent comeback in the region of $60-$80k before Isildur1 slowly moved back towards his $200k advantage. However, the last half an hour or so saw Ravenswood13 really step on the gas, taking Blom's stack down from a peak of $220k down to just $80k where the Swedish legend decided RaulGonzales enough was enough and quit for the day, taking $65k profit from the session to end the day up $79,009.

Second on yesterday's leaderboard we find NLHE pro limitless who earned $48,040 from 617 hands played from late yesterday morning through to late yesterday afternoon at the $25/$50, $50/$100, and $100/$200 6max tables. The biggest pot of the day was also won by limitless during a three-handed $100/$200 match against Stambolov and OtB_RedBaron.

limitless turns a full house and gets paid off by Otb_RedBaron who turned trips - $40.9k pot


In third we see another NLHE specialist, Jordi "prot0" Urlings, who turned a $37,135 profit at the $50/$100 tables, winning at all 6 tables he played during his morning and evening sessions. The top four was completed by yet another NLHE player as tuff_shark earned $24,261 from a busy morning at the $25/$50 tables. Once again, this player was able to turn a profit at all six of the tables they played yesterday.
