Ragen70 Hits $500k Profit in 2-7 TD, Isildur1 Drops $550k
The high-stakes games on Full Tilt Poker were raging last night with German Niklas “Ragen70” Heinecker once again imposing his will on his opponents.
Heinecker shredded the big $2k/$4k 2-7 Triple Draw game that was running on Full Tilt Poker with the likes of Isildur1, Phil “Polarizing” Ivey and thecortster.
The German pro raked in a total of $499k, according to highstakesdb.com. Heinecker opted out of tracking this year but topped the online charts in 2013 when he pulled in a staggering $6.3 million.
Interestingly Philipp Gruissem mentioned in an interview last week that the German crew of high-stakes pros, which includes Heinecker, talk 2-7 strategy more than any other game.
Isildur1 Crushed for $550k
Yesterday didn’t go quite as well for Swedish high-stakes pro Viktor “Isildur1” Blom who played a huge 1,700-hand session.
Blom played in the big 2-7 TD game but also the $500/$1000 Cap PLO game against Bttech86, trex313 and no_Ola.
Isildur1 ended up dropping over $550k but continued to play as this article was published.
It’s been an up-and-down year for Blom who initially spun up several million in winnings but now appears to be heading towards just $700k profit on the year.
At least Blom had some notable company in the loser’s column as Phil “Polarizing” Ivey had a very bad night that saw him drop over $300k.
For whatever reason Ivey has never really gained much traction since FTP relaunched and currently sits with over $3 million in losses.
Despite his losses Ivey remains the biggest all-time winner on the site with $17 million in profit.
