Doom! Isildur1 Drops $774k in One Day
After an insane weekend that saw him soar to $1.4 million in profit, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom promptly lost $774k yesterday.
Isildur1 stuck primarily to the 6-Max games yesterday and lost large sums to Jens “Jeans89” Kyllonen, long90110 and Rafi “refaelamit” Amit.
The Scandinavian swing machine looked like he might make a comeback in the later stages of the session when he raked a $158k pot against long90110 after turning a full house but he went right back to losing. Blom finally quit nearly $800k in the hole.
It’s nothing new for Blom who famously went on a multi-million dollar rampage in 2009 on Full Tilt Poker before losing nearly everything to Brian Hastings.
Things actually went considerably better this time around as the Scandinavian is still up $700k since returning to the high stakes games last week.
Kyllonen was the ultimate winner last night, securing a solid profit of $470k. While not as flashy as his Finnish countryman Ilari Sahamies, Kyllonen has been amazingly consistent this year and is currently riding an overall profit of $1.7 million.
Amit’s profit of 210k was enough to put him back on top of the 2011 PokerStars cash game leaderboard with $2.1 million. Ilari Sahamies dropped $100k, which was enough to drop him down to $2.09 million.
long90110 is durrrr?
Meanwhile long90110 is a new face in the high stakes scene and has only been active since November.
The amount of hands long90110 was able to play yesterday led many railbirds to speculate it was Tom “durrrr” Dwan.
Although long90110 did win $344k last night he destroyed most of his hard work by losing $318k this morning. Isildur1 can relate.
Some of the other notable scores last night included Benny “toweliestar” Spindler with a $206k profit and PepperoniF with $186k.
Meanwhile Vaga_Lion (-$306k), Axelf82 (-$290k) and takechip (-$132k) all had the misfortune of being on the top five loser’s list but certainly fared better than Isildur1.
