Isildur1 Continues to Grind

Brian Townsend
Brian "sbrugby" Townsend continues to battle Isildur1.

Coming off a massive $3.1 million win Sunday, Isildur1 continued to grind on Full Tilt’s high-stakes tables Monday night, playing Brian Townsend, Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies, Patrik Antonius and Jungleman12.

Isildur1’s latest session started with a two-hour long heads-up $300/$600 Pot-Limit Omaha match against Townsend. It took 1,224 hands and a $592k loss before Isildur1 convinced Townsend to step the match up to $500/$1,000.

Despite losing the second to fifth largest pots of the day, all worth well over $500k, Isildur1 managed to win the largest, worth $719,908, and over $354k of his money back during the 2,516-hand session.

The $719k pot came when the players got it all in on the turn after they both flopped a set. With no re-draws other than his one out to quads, Townsend’s bottom set of threes was drawing next to dead against Isildur1’s top set of aces.

During his battle with Townsend, Isildur1 also took on rivals Antonius and Sahamies. Antonius stuck around for 409 hands, long enough to make $436k, while Sahamies lasted just 56 hands, dumping $526k to the unknown Swede.

Stuck $174k on the night, Isildur1 turned to another CardRunners coach, playing $100/$200 No-Limit Hold’em against Jungleman12.

At the time of publication, Isildur1 had played 4,583 hands against Jungleman12, and was up on the match almost $450k.

The $450k put Isildur1 up around $275k on the day and $1.1 million total on the year so far.

Below are the three largest pots of the night, all between Isildur1 and Townsend. To see more hands, including Isildur1’s largest win against Antonius and Sahamies, head to MarketPulse.
