Isildur1 takes $120k from Tom “durrrr” Dwan

Tom Dwan

Even though he’s not playing million dollar pots, Isildur1 has been splashing around at the tables lately, taking $120k from Tom “durrrr” Dwan heads-up this morning.

Isildur1 and Dwan have one of the most epic rivalries in online poker history. After coming out of nowhere, the unknown Swede took Full Tilt by storm late last year, his sights fixed squarely on Dwan.

In just three days of heads-up action, Isildur1 took Dwan for over $5.2 million.

Dwan could only sit and watch as Isildur1 went on to lose all of his money to the other players in the nosebleed games, most notably Brian Hastings, Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius.

It's safe to assume Dwan has been eagerly waiting for his chance to get even with the Swede, but with Isildur1 keeping to slightly lower stakes, and rarely sitting behind a massive stack, he has been unable to do it so far.

Dwan's night started with a 2,011 hand match of $200/$400 Pot-Limit Omaha against Cole South. Unperturbed by South's exceptional results over the last two months, Dwan managed to end up $299k.

After losing $31k playing a $200/$400 Cap PLO game, Dwan next sat with Gus Hansen, Di "Urindanger" Dang and skjervoy at $200/$400 PLO, where he proceeded to lose $70k, the majority to Hansen.

After the other players at the table had their fill, Isildur1 took his seat, making $59,684 in just 24 hands before agreeing to move to heads-up $100/$200 No-Limit Hold'em.

After 980 hands of Hold'em, Isildur1 had doubled his profit adding another $59,054. Isildur1 went on to play $100/$200 and $200/$400 PLO heads up with Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond, losing $18k before throwing in the towel.

In total, Isildur1 finished the day up $48,655, while Dwan managed to keep his losses to only $5,343.

Meanwhile, Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies and Brian Hastings squared off at $300/$600 PLO. Thanks to winning a $291k pot, Hastings took the Finnish pro for over $256k.

After Ziigmund left, he was replaced by another Finn, Patrik Antonius.

Hastings went on to make another $56k from Antonius before calling it a day, up $312,119.

I guess the three spades or two kings weren't reason enough to shut down.



Seems aggressive to push with just top pair in PLO.



Three-pair for the win.
