Isildur1 Back on Top With $212k Win

After a few hundred thousand dollar downswing during the last week and a half of August, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom has been sensibly trying to rebuild a little at the lower stakes tables. Finally yesterday he managed to break out of the lower high stakes tables and took to the higher stakes, where he ended the day a $212.3k winner.

Isildur1 made a profit at the FLO8, 2-7 Triple Draw, and PLO tables, and only made a minor loss at the 8-Game tables.

His biggest profit came from the $100/$200 PLO tables where he won $73.5k, with $69k coming from a 3-handed sessions playing against Ben "Ben86" Tollerene, and Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies.

His longest match of the day was a swingy lat afternoon $1k/$2k 2-7 Triple Draw game against Seb "taktloss47" Ruthenberg. The three hour match didn't look like it was going to end well for Blom as Ruthenberg was ahead from the start and reached his peak of +$110k after two hours. However, Isildur1 came back strong in the last 50 minutes, winning back not only the $110k he'd lost, but managing to end the session with a $53.9k profit.

Isildur1's other notable win was a $48.7k win from a brief lunchtime game of $1k/$2k FLO8 against Jean-Robert "Jaqueline" Bellande, and Alexander "joiso" Kostritsyn.

There were no other six-figure winners yesterday, with second on the daily leaderboard going to German pro RaulGonzales, who posted an $81.7k win after playing three sessions of 2-7 Triple Draw, with his biggest win of $55k coming heads-up from a 90 minute early afternoon game against Cort "thecortster" Kibler-Melby.

In third place was player <xllllll><, who bagged a $70.9k win, almost exclusively from playing $50/$100 PLO heads-up against WRUUUUM.
