Isildur1 Loses $2.7 Million and Counting
Isildur1 has lit a fire under his roll, losing over $2.7 million at the tables before getting into an ongoing heads-up session with CardRunners Pro Cole South.
The fire-sale session began just past noon yesterday when Isildur1 sat with Brian Townsend at $300/$600 Pot-Limit Omaha. Over a 618 hand session, Townsend took another $566k from Isildur1, pushing his total profits against the unknown Swede up to $2.1 million.
After Townsend had his fill for the day, Isildur1 took a seat across from Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies at $500/$1,000 PLO. Continuing their million dollar battles from Sunday, Ziigmund fleeced the Swede for over $1 million in just 1,123 hands.
This million dollar profit puts Sahamies up over $1.8 million against Isildur1 since they first faced off last month.
Meanwhile, after losing more than $5.2 million exclusively to Isildur1, Tom “durrrr” Dwan has dropped down in limits, playing as low as $25/$50 PLO yesterday.
Isildur1 sat with Dwan for 227 hands of $50/$100 PLO, losing $30k.
However, it was not enough to make up for some other loses as Dwan ended the night down $60k.
After the brief session with Dwan, Antonius stepped into Isildur1's path, turning his day from bad to catastrophic.
Even though the two rivals only played 903 hands at $300/$600 PLO, Antonius continued the public flogging of Isildur1, taking another $1 million from the Swede’s roll. With this cash in hand, Antonius’ profits from Isildur1 are back up to an impressive $1.6 million.
At this point, Isildur1 was down over $2.7 million on the day, putting him down to a career low of -$626k since he showed up on the high-stakes scene.
Smelling the blood in the water, Cole South convinced Isildur1 to sit for a lengthy session of $200/$400 PLO. Isildur1 lost another $591k to South over 2,442 hands before they moved up to $300/$600. As of press time the match was still ongoing.

A little gamble pays off.
Ziigmund needed a lot of luck to win this one.
A huge turn for Ziigmund.
