Isildur1 Burned for $210k
Viktor “Isildur1” Blom had a disastrous weekend on PokerStars, losing more than $200k.
The Swedish poker phenom certainly didn’t lose for lack of effort as he fired off 5,751 hands against a number of opponents.
The real problems began when he took on Gavin “gavz101” Cochrane at $50/$100 Pot-Limit Omaha.
Isildur1 and gavz101 have been sparring all month but for the most part Isildur1 had held his own against the elite PLO player.
It was another story last night as gavz101 dominated Blom for $187k. Blom went on to play Sauce123 and finally called it a night when he hit -$210k.
The loss marked the end of a very successful run for Isildur1 as he had been able to win $550k in the month of May and finally get even on the year.
After last night’s loss, Isildur1 once again stumbled into the negative and is down a total of $234k in 2011.
Ironically the weekend didn’t go much better for gavz101 as he donated the majority of his winnings to the 6-max games that were running on PokerStars. He finished with only $53k in profit.
The biggest winner this weekend was le kork, who ran up $89k in 7,687 hands on PokerStars. The other two big winners on PokerStars were 1-ronnyr3 (+$71k) and 20 Buck Spin (+$59k).
Meanwhile on Full Tilt, O Fortuna PLS ruled the roost with $54k in profit.
Joining Isildur1 in the losing category were SoloTalent2 (-$75k), yuri264 (-$73k), adiprene (-$66k).
Even Gus Hansen, who has been red hot lately, cooled off considerably as he lost a total of $51k on Full Tilt.
Many of the most well known online players, including Patrik Antonius and Rui Cao, were inactive this weekend meaning they could be on their way to Las Vegas for the 2011 WSOP.
The huge poker series begins tomorrow and PokerListings will be on location with live updates, news, blogs, videos and more from the Rio in Las Vegas.
