RaulGonzales Wins $227k From Isildur1

RaulGonzales and Viktor "Isildur1" Blom were back at the $1k/$2k tables over at PokerStars yesterday evening, and once again it was the German pro who came out on top after finding success at both the 8-Game and 2-7 Triple Draw tables.

The day had actually started pretty well for Isildur1 who, after playing for a while at the $100/$200 2-7 tables and more or less breaking even stepped up to the $500/$1000 tables to take on donthnrmepls. Isildur1 has tended to do pretty well against this opponent at Triple Draw of late and yesterday was no exception. The pair played for 1hr 40mins late yesterday afternoon/early yesterday evening, putting in 304 hands from which Isildur1 emerged a $97k winner.

Twenty minutes later and Isildur1 moved up to the $1k/$2k 8-Game tables where he once again took on RaulGonzales, a German pro who seems to have Blom's number lately. Once again RaulG dominated the match, winning $200k from the 3hr 20 minute 623 hand battle. Immediately after quitting the 8-Game table, Isildur1 and RaulGonzales started a $1k/$2k 2-7 Triple Draw match, but Isildur1 only stuck at it for 14 hands, in which time he lost another $26,334.

vb Above: Viktor "Isildur1" Blom had a good start to the day winning nearly $100k at 2-7 Triple Draw but ended the day down $130k after suffering a heavy 8-Game loss to RaulGonzales

After some earlier small losses at the $100/$200 2-7 TD and $200/$400 8-Game tables are taken into account RaulGonzales ended the day with a $219,175 profit.

A long way back in second place on yesterday's high stakes leaderboard we find Hungarian PLO specialist Laszlo "omaha4rollz" Bujtas who played mainly short-handed against ActionFreak and fjutekk at the $50/$100 tables late yesterday afternoon on his way to a $21,120 profit.

Third place went to 8superpoker who put in just under 1k hands at numerous $200/$400 FLHE tables, winning a combined $19,322 across the nine tables he played at. It was another FLHE player who took fourth spot as Roenepoen earned $13,597 playing at the $50/$100 and $200/$400 for just under three hours yesterday afternoon.
