After losing just $13k to Isildur1 in a short session on Saturday, Brian Townsend returned yesterday for round two, taking over $262k from the unknown Swede.

Unlike many Isildur1 sessions, which jump up to $500/$1,000, yesterday's 1.5 hour session took place entirely at $300/$600 Pot-Limit Omaha.

Over the 1,003 hands dealt, the rivals played 23 pots worth over $100k, the six largest all being awarded to Townsend.

The largest pot of the session, worth $197k, saw Isildur1 get it all in on the turn with top two, drawing stone cold dead against Towsend’s top set.

The largest pot won by Isildur1 came in at $145k. This hand saw both players pot and re-pot their way all in on the flop with Isildur1’s bottom set of sixes versus the open-ended straight draw of Townsend.

After bricking the turn, Townsend’s hopes of drawing out on the river were crushed by the case six, giving Isildur1 four of a kind and the pot.

The session ended with Isildur1 down over $262k, putting him down almost $2.4 million on the year.

Townsend is quickly becoming one of Isildur1’s most consistent opponents. Since their first session just two months ago, Townsend has booked 17,725 hands against Isildur1 with a total profit of over $1.5 million.

Just ahead of Townsend in both hands played, and money earned, sits Patrik Antonius at 22,230 hands, and a profit of $2.1 million, against the unknown Swede.

In the lead for hands played, and money lost, sits Tom Dwan with a whopping 45,172 hands, and over $5.5 million lost.

An unlucky turn for Isildur1.



Aces versus Kings.



Not that he needed it, but a nice river for the Swede.
