It appears Isildur1 feels right at home on PokerStars after winning $287k in his first real day on the site.

The new Team PokerStars Pro, who is rumored to be Viktor Blom, played a marathon 14-hour session of $25/$50 where he took on all takers.

Among Isildur1’s opponents were Ashton “theASHMAN103” Griffin, Scott “urnotindangr” Palmer, Brian “$tinger 88” Hastings making the game very reminiscent of nosebleed Full Tilt tables.

The virtual rail was buzzing with Isildur1 fans and the stage certainly seems to be set for the first of Isildur1’s 2,500 hand SuperStar Challenges, which will begin on Dec. 19.

Meanwhile on Full Tilt, Di “Urindanger” Dang took advantage of a relatively slow day by winning $180k in the $300/$600 PLO Six-Max games.

Tom Dwan was right behind Dang, winning $174k in 1,579 hands. Although Dan “jungleman12” Cates was also online yesterday, the pair did not resume the durrrr Challenge 2 and Cates lost $211k in 1,479 hands.

The other big winner of the evening on Full Tilt was URnotINdanger2 who won $97k.

It appears Gus Hansen will have to wait another day before dipping below the $1 million loss mark as he lost $282k last night.

Also in the losing column were luckexpress10 (-$211k), tuff_fish (-$63k), Nick Shulman (-$49k) and Sauce1234 (-$31k).
