Isildur1 loses $900,000 at Full Tilt Poker

Friday, 19 February 2010

Isildur1 made a well-publicised return to the high-stakes games on Full Tilt Poker this year after his rise and fall to the tune of $6,000,000 in 2009. In a period of less than two days, the Swedish over-aggressor earned the better part of $1.5m.

During this period he played some much-anticipated – yet anti-climactic – rematches with Brian Hastings and Tom “durrrr” Dwan, to whom he lost $4.2m and won $5m respectively. However, most of his money in 2010 came at the hands of Justin “ZeeJustin” Bonomo.

The tables turned, however – Bonomo won back $400,000 of his bankroll playing heads-up before he made the mistake of taking on Brian Townsend at $300/$600 PLO. Townsend has had an appalling 2010 thus far but in PLO your luck can change like that. ... sorry, that’s more effective if you can see me clicking my fingers.

Over the course of just 600 hands, Isildur1 had lost the better part of half a million to the Full Tilt Pro. At first Townsend had a massive lead but Isildur1 turned it around to get back in the black before losing a string of huge hands to wind up over $300,000 down.

Their largest pot totalled up at $416,000. It was a classic Omaha coin-flip as Isildur1’s set couldn’t escape Townsend’s huge flush. Isildur1 lead out for $7,800 into a $11,000 pot on a 3-bet flop of Kh-5h-6d then 3-bet Townsend’s raise to $84,600. The CardRunners instructor called and the money flew in on a Tc turn.

Isildur1 held Ac-Qs-6c-6s for a set, gutshot and the nut flush draw but Townsend’s 9h-8s-7d-3h had 13 outs to a straight and a heart draw. It was the latter hand that was made with the 2h river and Isildur1 lost the largest pot of the day.
