Isildur1 Felted Once More After A Losing $1.8 Million Session

Isildur1’s gamble and readiness to put his whole bankroll on the line at any one time seems to have led to a predictable enough outcome once more, as he has succeeded in wiping out all profits from his recent comeback trail in just one day.
Isildur1 initially stormed the Full Tilt Poker tables from October to December 2009, where he won $6 million before things started to go wrong for the mystery Swede who ended losing $2 million of his own money.
In his latest return to the high stakes action, Isildur1 succeeded in turning a profit of around $3 million before finding himself  back at square one again Monday, this time after losing almost $1.8 million on the day.
The session started well enough for the mystery Swede after taking $200k from Sahamies over 499 hands of heads-up $500/$1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha. However, all that was about to change after his old nemesis Brian Hastings took Sahamies seat and then proceeded to relieve Isildur of $1.6 million of his bankroll.
The biggest pot of their session was worth $486k and occurred after Isildur1 was dealt As Jc 9c 7s to Hastings Kd Qs 10c 9s.  Hastings lead out for $3,000 on the button, Isildur1 raised to $9,000, Hastings four-bet to $27,000, Isildur1 escalated once more to $81,000 and was called by Hastings. After the flop fell Jd 9d 5d Isildur1 made a pot-sized bet of $162,000 with top two pair and Hastings made the call setting himself all-in with a straight draw. A 5s on the turn and Ad on the river didn’t alter the outcome and Isildur1 took down the monster pot.
However, having finished the session against Hastings $1.6 million down Isildur1 had effectively wiped out the whole of his 2010 profits. Not deterred, Isildur1 then caught up with Sahamies once more and took $65k off the Finn at $200/$400 PLO, before upping the stakes to $300/$600, where he lost a further $349,925 to Sahamies.
In a sign of his dwindling bankroll, Isildur1 then dropped down to $25/$50 PLO where he played Cole South heads-up, but still managed to drop a further $30k, to take a $1,790,744 hit on the day.
It would now seem Isildur1 has depleted his bankroll once more and will have to grind his way back up again if he is to mount a third high stakes return. Maybe by then he might have incorporated a bit of bank roll management into his strategy to avoid losing all his hard earned gains over the space of a single day’s play.
