RaúlGonzalez Bests Isildur1 for $160k in Evening Session

After his +$160k day on Saturday Viktor "Isildur1" Blom was looking to build on his latest upswing yesterday. It wasn't to be, however, as he ended the day losing heavily to German pro RaúlGonzalez at the $1k/$2k 2-7 Triple Draw & 8-Game tables late last night.

RaúlGonzalez and Isildur1's first big game took place around breakfast time with Isildur1 coming out on top of a brief 60 hand encounter at the $1k/$2k 2-7 Triple Draw tables, winning $43k from the 27 minute session. The evening sessions were all about the German pro, however, as he came on strong during the final minutes of a +2hr mid-evening session back at the Triple Draw tables to win that 430 hand encounter with an $81,176 profit. The pair then switched to a mixed-game table where RaúlGonzalez won a further $78k in just over an hour and a half (although $27.7k will appear on today's results as the match went past midnight). Although RG won $160k during the evening sessions, due to the day's earlier losses and the fact that $27.7k will go on tomorrow's figure, in total RaúlGonzalez ended the day with a $95,932 profit.

Second on yesterday's leaderboard was the ever consistent Swiss NLHE prodigy Linus "LLinusLLove" Loeliger who enjoyed yet another win at the $25/$50 and $50/$100 tables, making a $58,292 profit from 406 hands played throughout the day at a number of tables. His first win of the day was his biggest as he made $32,717 from just over an hour's play 3-handed alongside OhHeyCindy and prot0 late yesterday morning. LLinusLLove is currently 2018's biggest high stakes winner as he fast approaches the $500k profit mark.

In third place we find English pro Tom "tjbentham" Bentham who posted a $19,765 profit from 138 hands of PLO yesterday morning and afternoon, with all his profit coming from a 34 hand morning session at a $100/$200 6max table. He also took down the day's biggest pot during his $100/$200 match.

All the money goes in on the flop with Isildur1 holding top pair and a Queen high flush draw to tjbentham's King high flush draw and three live overcards. The turn is safe for Isildur1 but the Ac on the river sends this $39.8k pot over to the Englishman.


Finally fourth on yesterday's leaderboard also came from the morning PLO sessions as Sweden's bajskorven87 ended the day up $18,488 from 248 hands at the $25/$50, $50/$100, and $100/$200 tables.
