Isildur1 Books Loss, Dwan Gaining Ground

Tom Dwan
One day at a time.

After a long day of short sessions, Isildur1 logged off for the night booking another loss, this time to the tune of $229k.

Over the course of the day the unknown Swede played 11 sessions of Pot-Limit Omaha at limits ranging from $25/$50 to $200/$400.

Although there was some six-max sessions scattered throughout, the majority of Isildur1’s 3,638 hands came from playing heads-up against CardRunners pro Cole South.

Over 3,217 hands of heads-up, South took over $238k from the Swede.

The majority of Isildur1’s heads-up losses came from a 924 hand session of $100/$200 PLO where he dumped close to $158k.

The largest pot, worth $126,391, went to South after getting it all in on the flop with an over-pair Aces against Isildur1’s combo draw. Isildur1 bricked the turn, and South hit a third ace on the river to take it.

Thanks to small profits from his various six-max games, Isildur1 was able to make back close to $10k of his heads-up losses, logging off for the day down $229k. As of the end of this session, Isildur1 is down a total $2.6 million on the year.

Tom “durrrr” Dwan was also back at the felt, playing Hold’em and Omaha across a variety of limits from $25/$50 to $100/$200.

His latest session ran from Sunday evening until midday Monday over 7,043 hands. Dwan put away over $107k worth of profit.

Unfortunately, this $107k is only a very small step towards getting back to even on the year. With yesterday’s profit, Dwan is still down almost $6.1 million. He's currently playing in the WPT Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic in Las Vegas.
