RaiseOnce, Isildur1 Dominate Weekend

RaiseOnce was the biggest high stakes winner over the weekend while Isildur1 chalked up another SuperStar Showdown victory.

The rumored account of Phil Ivey, RaiseOnce put in his most dominating performance on PokerStars since re-activating last fall.

Over 1,283 hands of $100/$200 PLO, RaiseOnce absolutely stomped the competition for a total of $307k. RaiseOnce is now up $625k on the year and looking more Ivey-like every day.

RaiseOnce did particularly on an all-Nordic table of Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, Jens “Jeans89” Kyllonen and Fake Love888, which is the alleged account of Patrik Antonius. He smashed all three players to win nearly $100k on that table alone.

The loss did nothing to slow down Isildur1 as he blasted Alex “Kanu7” Millar in the SuperStar Showdown.

Last week Isildur1 lost to Isaac Haxton by a mere $5,000 hands but made up for it yesterday by pounding Millar for $37k.

Haxton remains the only player who has actually won money off Isildur1 in the Showdown.

Phil Galfond Continues to Roll

RaiseOnce and Isildur1 weren’t the only hot players last night. Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond continued his amazing run by pulling in another $248k in the PLO games.

Galfond is in the midst of performing the most impressive turnaround of the year coming back from being down over $700k to up about $1 million in the span of a couple months.

If Galfond continues to play well he could soon pass an idle bernard-bb as the biggest winner of 2012.

Terken89 (+$155k), Ville Wahlbeck (+$143k) and Benny “toweliestar” Spindler (+$127k) were the other big winners last night.

Meanwhile it was not a great night for Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky who got lit up for a total of $286k over the weekend.

The U.S.-born player made the mistake of playing Isildur1 heads-up on a couple tables and got beat badly.

Fellow U.S. poker pro Ben “Ben86” Tollerene got into serious trouble in the high stakes games last night and ended up losing $236k, which made him the second biggest loser of the night.

Zypherin (-$150k), 1-ronnyr3 (-$139k) and Jeans89 (-$138k) rounded out the top five biggest overall losers.
