Over the past six weeks, Isildur1 has become an urban legend of online high stakes poker. He made likes of Patrik Antonius run away from the NLHE HU tables and just two-and-a-half weeks ago, he was up by $6 million. However, he is now back to where he was one month ago - down by $1.3 million.
Over the past several weeks, Isildur1 has become a hero to many railbirds, as he crushed top pros in NLHE to the extent that they started running away to the PLO grounds where they felt safer against this new threat to their high stakes world.While Isildur1 proved to be a NLHE HU specialist, he admitted himself that PLO is not his game of choice. Nevertheless, his hunger for action led him to the PLO tables where the top pros waited readily. Despite trying his best to beat them even there, moving to PLO inevitably came at a great cost.
$5.3 million gone in two daysAccording to Highstakesdb, Isildur1 had a successful session against Patrik Antonius this weekend, but now he is back to square one - with his bankroll slightly above what he started with at the beginning of November.
In the past two to three days of action, Isildur1 has lost $5.3 million, with most of that money going to Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies. The two have already played against each other multiple times, but it was only recently that action between them really heated up.
Last week, Ziigmund steamrolled Isildur1 for $2.5 million and now, he has added another $2.2 million profit into his pocket. Isildur1 did put up a fight and at one point was even up by $1.3 million, but as their session progressed, so did Ziigmund's stacks rise on each table.Besides Ziigmund, Brian Townsend also proved successful, winning $1.1 million against Isildur1 last week and adding another $770k to it in the past two days. Even Antonius found his way back up and earned $1.3 million after having a few losing sessions.
Spoils of warTom "durrrr" Dwan won a modest $200k against Isildur1 in the last two days and still remains the biggest loser against the Swede, being down by close to $5 million - with most of that money now being spread amongst other pros.
Overall, Phil Ivey (pictured right) is the biggest winner against Isildur1, as he won $2.7 million. Ziigmund and Antonius are following behind, both up by $1.9 million against the Swedish player. Thanks to his latest victories, Townsend is the 4th biggest winner, up by $1.7 million.
Isildur1 played an insane number of 130,000 hands in the past six weeks. He was up by $6 million only two-and-a-half weeks ago and now he is down by $1.3 million - a mere $100k smaller deficit than he had started with in November. Below you can see Isildur's graph since October 23:
