Isildur1 vs. Hastings Round Two
For the first time since their controversial $4.2 million dollar heads-up match, Brian Hastings and Isildur1 sat for a second round of $300/$600 Pot-Limit Omaha yesterday.
The previous match between Hastings and Isildur1 went down Dec. 8, with Hastings making an astounding $4.2 million, in part thanks to an in-depth hand-history analysis by Brian Townsend derived from the combined Full Tilt histories of Townsend, Hastings and Cole South.
The record-setting session appeared to leave the unknown Swede in a state of disrepair.
However, after almost two months of grinding lower stakes games, Isildur1 returned to the high-stakes scene Monday, making over $806k to kick-start his comeback.
In typical Isildur1 style, he returned to put his profits back into play yesterday, commencing what appears to be a second run at the online poker leader boards.
Isildur1 started his night by playing 625 hands of $200/$400 PLO against Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies, making over $116k.
Sahamies went on to lose a total of $266,926 for the night.
Up next for Isildur1 was four tables of Six-Max $300/$600 PLO against Tom "durrrr" Dwan, Di "Urindanger" Dang and Jani Vilmunen. After making another $247k in 639 hands, Isildur1 was ready for his rematch with Hastings.
Hastings and Isildur1 took seats at six tables of heads-up $300/$600 PLO setting the stage for round two of what might be the biggest grudge-match in online poker history.
After 926 hands, Isildur1 had grabbed an ounce of redemption, taking apart the CardRunners pro to the tune of $504,987.
With the $504k from Hastings added to his total for the day, Isildur1 finished the day up $869k.
His comeback now in full swing after back-to-back $800k+ days, Isildur1 has moved into fourth place for profit in 2010 with over $1.4 million.
