Isildur1 wins $1.5m over the weekend

Tuesday, 13 December 2011

Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom has had one of the better weekends of his career. The numbers involved are closer to those we saw at Full Tilt than ever before, except this time people are playing with their own bankrolls.

On Saturday Isildur1 returned to the PLO tables with a $620k win and on Sunday expanded on that to the tune of $900k. Along the way he made short work of Brian Townsend, the account rumoured to be Patrik Antonius and Phil Galfond.

This run sees Isildur1 jump up to 3rd on the 2011 leaderboard with $1.9m in profit for this year, behind only Ilari Sahamies and Rafael Amit. Another weekend like this and Isildur1 will have no trouble surpassing them both.
