Isildur1 Takes on David Benefield
Even though he hasn't been making headlines, Isildur1 has been a regular at the high-stakes tables on Full Tilt in 2010, most recently playing a lengthy early morning heads-up session with David Benefield.
Including the session with Benefield, Isildur1 booked 4,700 hands yesterday on limits ranging from $25/$50 to $100/$200.
Although almost all of his hands came from Pot-Limit Omaha, 99 of them went down at a couple of tables of $50/$100 Cap No-Limit Hold'em.
Isildur1's match with Benefield began at $50/$100 PLO where he earned $21,795 over 1,323 hands, the largest pot of the match coming in at just $31k.
After almost two hours, Isildur1 and Benefield agreed to double the stakes, moving their action up to $100/$200 PLO. It was here where Benefield finally got the upper hand, making over $50k in the two and a half hour, 1,767-hand, session.
The largest pot of day on Full Tilt came during this second session after Benefield spiked a flush on the river to beat Isildur1's turned nut straight. The two players had their money all-in on the turn with Benefield pulling in the $101,392 pot.
By the end of the day, Isildur1 finished with a total profit of $76,577, bringing him up to almost $200k profit on the year so far.
Benefield, who only played 11 hands of $200/$400 Cap PLO before starting his first session with Isildur1, finished the day up just over $32k.
