After going on a two-million dollar run over the last few weeks, Isildur1 sat for 9,261 hands yesterday, losing over $1.8 million dollars.

The unknown Swede's session started by turning around a heads-up $500/$1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha session against CardRunners pro Cole South, going from down over $300k after 133 hands to up $557,896 after 952 hands of play.

Justin "ZeeJustin" Bonomo, who has been playing heads-up Hold'em with Isildur1 almost daily, took $101k from the Swede after just over 300 hands of $200/$400 No-Limit Hold'em, but was unable to hold on to it losing back $622,648 a couple hours later.

Bonomo would leave the tables down $521,566 last night.

Tom "durrrr" Dwan, who has been in the process of making a massive comeback since his brutal losses at the end of 2009, would be next on Isildur1's hit-list, but after 888 hands of $300/$600 PLO Dwan managed to pull off a massive $1,021,995 win, almost entirely negating Isildur1's profit for the day.

Dwan's million dollar profit moves him to first place for profit in 2010 with over $3.3 million earned so far at Full Tilt.

Next up, Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond continued the heads-up $200/$400 NLHE session started by Bonomo, making just over $57k after 1,482 hands.

The two then agreed to move the game to $300/$600 PLO where they remained for 2,182 hands, moving up to $500/$1,000 after Isildur1 got stuck for over $254k.

Galfond turned up the heat at $500/$1,000, absolutely crushing Isildur1 for over $1.6 million across the action-filled 2,064 hand session.

In total, the two played 8 pots worth over $300k, the largest of which came in at $415,999.

By the end of the day, Isildur1 had lost $1.9 million exclusively to Galfond, booking a massive $1.8 million dollar loss on the day.
