Isildur1 and Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies went to war on Full Tilt Poker yesterday, playing two separate million dollar sessions.

The first session began Sunday afternoon with action over four $500/$1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha tables.

The largest pot of the day came when Isildur1 tried to bluff Sahamies with nothing but a pair of threes. Sahamies, holding the second nuts with a king-high straight, instantly made the final $200k call to take down a $709k pot.

Despite winning the largest pot, Isildur1 schooled Sahamies for the duration of the 1,060 hands, grinding large profits from all four tables and ending the session up $1.7 million.

After taking an hour long break, Sahamies returned to the $500/$1,000 PLO tables to try and earn back some of his losses. The second session lasted only 30 minutes, Sahamies losing another $111k before logging off once more.

Two hours later Sahamies returned for a third and final session of the day. A total of 1,882 hands were dealt over three hours with the pair seated at five heads-up $500/$1,000 PLO tables.

This time it was Sahamies' turn to leave in the black, making back over $1.2 million from Isildur1 before both players called it quits. With the day complete, Isildur1 was still the overwhelming winner, up $626k.

This latest victory leaves the still unidentified Isildur1 up $1.9 million since he showed up at Full Tilt’s high-stakes tables.
