Isildur1 and durrrr Headline Weekend Action
Although many of the biggest names in online poker put in sessions over the weekend, only Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Isildur1 managed to come away with a profit.
The majority of the weekend's action and almost all of the largest pot, came from a variety of six-max Pot-Limit Omaha games.
The largest pot of the weekend, worth $622,962, was won by Di "Urindanger" Dang at $300/$600 PLO when both Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond and Isildur1 got it all in with the Dang brother pre-flop.
Dang managed to hit the perfect flop, making the bicycle straight, with neither player having two spades to complete what could have been a flopped flush. Not only did Dang flop the straight, but Isildur1 was left drawing dead and Galfond only had outs to chop.
Despite winning the largest pot of the weekend, Dang still finished with an overall loss of $150k. Galfond, who showed up on the losing end of 3 out of 5 of the weekend's largest pots, also booked a $238,466 loss.
Dwan's first serious match of the weekend came at $200/$400 No-Limit Hold'em where he lost $174k to Justin "ZeeJustin" Bonomo over 1,715 hands.
He was able to re-coup his losses in the next match he played, taking $230k from Patrik Antonius in the short 61-hand durrrr Challenge session. Thanks in part to this loss, Antonius finished the weekend down $923,567.
After a few small losses, all with a combined total of less than $25k, Dwan spent just 552 hands at the six-max $300/$600 PLO tables, making an impressive $707,785 before calling it quits.
In total, Dwan finished the weekend up over $797k.
Meanwhile, Isildur1 managed to have the best weekend results of all, posting a weekend profit of around $845k. Isildur1's first match came at $100/$200 NLHE against Sami "LarsLuzak" Kelopuro. After losing over $87k, Isildur1 doubled the stakes, but lost another $144k in the process.
Moving to $200/$400 PLO against Dang, Isildur1 crushed the session, leaving up $550,456 after almost 4,000 hands.
Isildur1 carried his momentum into his next HU match, this time taking $284k from Alexander "PostflopAction" Kostritsyn at $300/$600 PLO.
Unfortunately, Isildur1 was unable to navigate the $300/$600 PLO six-max game, losing over $344k during his 521-hand stint.
After taking on Kelopuro once more, this time at $300/$600 NLHE, and making back over $220k, Isildur1 sat with Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies at $500/$1,000 PLO.
The two played 500 hands with Isildur1 making just under $200k before Sahamies logged off. His empty seat was filled by Brian Hastings who, at the time of publication, had lost $150k after 1,500 hands in a still ongoing match.
Up until press time, Isildur1 had made over $844k on the weekend. Check back tomorrow for the final results of the Isildur1 vs. Hastings nosebleed match.
