Isildur1 loses $300,000 at Full Tilt Poker

Wednesday, 24 February 2010

One thing we didn’t see last year was Swedish legend Isildur1 taking on Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond. Well, wait no more – it happened, with Galfond taking $149,000 from the Scandinavian mystery man.

The big winner of the day, though, was Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies, who appears to be on something of a hot streak recently. He steamrolled opposition in the PLO games, primarily Cole South, who lost over $600,000 to the aggressive Finn.

Their largest pot was just under $220,000 and occurred when Ziigmund flopped two pair, the second-nut flush draw and a gutshot straight draw. PLO never ceases to amaze us, it always seems you can flop a hand that the entire deck improves.

That said, South had him beaten with the nut flush draw, but couldn’t hit his outs and two pair held up to take down the $219,000 pot.

Watch this action as it happens at Full Tilt Poker.
