Sparks Fly As Isildur1 Takes On Jungleman12 At Full Tilt Poker

September 30th 2010 saw the return of Isildur1 to Full Tilt Poker, hot on the heels of his 16th place deep run ($51,806) at the WSOPE Main Event.
On his first revisit to the site, Isildur1 played NL HU $100/$200 for around an hour and a half, and walked away with a $25,000 profit.                                       
Returning to the site on October 1st, Isildur1 won another $50,000 playing PLO $25/$50 Heads-up before losing $25,000 back to Finnish player “458854” at NL HU. 
But then Saturday October 2nd saw, rail birds treated to a rare match-up after Isildur1 and jungleman12 aka Daniel Cates got down to some high stakes action.
Jungleman12 was actually waiting to begin another session in his durrrr challenge when he ended up playing 2,123 hands of $100/$200 NLHE against the Swedish online wild man.
Despite Isildur1 getting off to a $55K lead over the first 700 hands of their battle, jungleman12 came back to go $100K ahead before Isildur1 managed to wrestle the advantage once more to the tune of  $20K. However, Isildur1’s come back was fleeting and he eventually ended the session down a whopping $97K.
One of the biggest pots of their session was worth $93k and occurred after Isildur1 was dealt Ad-5c to Cates’s 8s-8d.
Isildur1 raised to $600 from the button and then called Cates’ 3-bet to $2,400. With the flop falling Qs-2c-9c Cates check called Isildur1’s $2,800 bet to take the pot to $10,400.
However, with a 8c falling on the turn to give Cate’s a set, he check called Isildur1’s $7,600 bet before he allowed the Swede to bluff off the rest of his remaining $33,398 stack on a 4d river card. The $93k was then shipped jungleman12’s way who continued to control the last third of their heads-up match and eventually walk away a $97K winner.
If that wasn’t enough, after their game broke up, rail birds were then treated to the next installment of Jungleman12 and Tom Dwan’s durrrr challenge. However, their brief encounter of 582 hands produced just a $1,500 profit for Dwan which did little to reduce the almost $690k deficit he has to his young, talented opponent.
