Isildur1 In The Red As His Poker Roller Coaster Ride ContinuesDecember 9, 2009 9:32 am
Fresh from his $3.1 million comeback on Sunday, Isildur1 was up to his usual tricks at Full Tilt Poker again on Monday, taking on Brian Townsend, Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies, Patrik Antonius, Jungleman12 and Brian Hastings throughout a monumental high stakes session.
Brian Townsend was the first to step up to the plate and managed to take $592k off Isildur1 playing heads-up $300/$600 Pot-Limit Omaha before moving up to $500/$1,000. The biggest pot of the session was worth $719,908 and went to the Swede after both players flopped sets but with Isildur1 holding the aces. After clawing back $354k of his losses, the Swede ended his session against Townsend down around $250k.
While battling Townsend, Isildur1 was also playing on separate tables against Antonius who made $436k over 405 hands, and Sahamies who lost $526k over just 56 hands.Down $174k on the nights play, Isildur1 then took on CardRunners coach Jungleman12 at $100/$200 No-Limit Hold’em, and the poker teacher started well by taking close to $450k from Isildur1 but things soon reversed themselves and by the session end it was the Swede who was up $472k.
Next up was another Cardrunners pro, Brian Hastings, who would ultimately prove Isildur1’s slayer on the night. Hasting has managed to accumulate around $800k in profits this year but his bankroll was about to take a massive boost after Isildur1 went on one of his famous tail dives.
The duo played 2,867 hands which were littered with huge pots, the biggest of which at $683k went to Hastings after he spiked his card on the river to complete his straight. The end result was a massive $4,206,960 profit for Hastings.
As he left the virtual felts for the night, Isildur1 might have wondered how he managed to turn a winning $1 million session into a $3 million losing one. He is now back to where he started before his $3 million upswing started a couple of days ago.
