“Isildur1” Takes Down $180k On The Highstakes Tables
Ever since the re-launch of Full Tilt Poker, Viktor “Isildur1” Blom has seemingly continued his poor run of form that he had prior to the site opening up for business again. However, yesterday saw him finally turn his fortunes around as he banked a profit of $180k.
Blom even tweeted the other day that the tables have been increasingly cold towards him, and that he was going to take a vacation in order to heat them back up.
The idea he had seems to be working so far as he yesterday came back yesterday to record his profits on the 2-7 Triple Draw tables when he was up against the likes of “Seb86”and “Barcode”. The stakes started at $300/$600 but before long he had moved his game to the $1,500/$3,000 tables.
2-7 Triple Draw is a new game to Blom, yet he took to it like a duck to water yesterday, so much so that he avoided his usual Pot Limit Omaha game. He did this during a session that lasted just four hours and involved him seeing just 750 hands.
Whilst Blom’s wins came at Full Tilt Poker, which is to be expected since he is a paid pro for the site, the other big winners came from PokerStars. The biggest winner over at that site was “Odd_Oddsen” who managed to turn a profit of $98.2k; he was plying his trade on the $100/$200 Pot Limit Omaha tables and had certainly one of his better displays.
The Day’s Biggest Pots!
The biggest pot of yesterday was won by “Barcode” as he won by virtue of a pair of aces in his hole cards. He took down $126k, as his opponent “Ilari FIN” missed out on all of his draws. Sahamies did get his own back though as he took a $79k pot from “Barcode” when his opponent flat out bluffed.
“Barcode” though took his own vengeance when he finally hit one of his many draws to take a pot of $68k; he hit a straight on the turn to infuriate Blom.
“Barcode” actually ended up as the day’s biggest loser, having dropped around $200k throughout the day. Blom on the other hand finished as the day’s biggest winner, though he will need a lot more if he plans on recouping the losses he has had so far this year.
The Days Top Earners!
We here like to follow the high stakes action on either PokerStars or Full Tilt Poker, purely because no other sites offer such high stakes action throughout the year.
