The past few days have seen the return to action of one very familiar face at the high stakes tables at Full Tilt Poker, while another has boosted his bankroll by seven-figures.
The former was Phil Ivey who has returned to online action using the moniker 'polarizing'. According to HighStakesDB.com, Ivey added $145k to the $19m he has already scooped at Full Tilt, in his first visit to the online tables. He followed that up with an $80k session, again at the $1k/$2k 2-7 Triple Draw tables.A $220k profit in his first two day back marks an excellent return for Ivey but he'll have to go some way to match Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom who has been running super hot.The Swede is up over $1.3m since last Friday after profitable sessions at the $200/$400 Cap PLO, the $1.5k/$3k 2-7 Triple Draw and the FLO8 tables (both $1k/$2k and $2k/$4k).After a somewhat sticky start as a Full Tilt ambassador, Isildur1 has really hit his straps and is now up $1.05m since Full Tilt relaunched last month.Join Blom and Ivey at the Full Tilt Poker tables with a 100% first deposit bonus of up to $500.
