Sauce123 beats Isildur1 for $600k after marathon online clash
Wednesday, 22 August 2012
The online trials and tribulations of the newly patchless Viktor Blom have once again provided rich entertainment for railbirds. The latest instalment saw Isildur1 on the wrong end of a marathon encounter with Ben 'sauce123' Sulsky which saw the Swede drop $600k.
The pair put in a marathon 15-hour, 6,000 hand plus session at the $200/$400 PLO tables at PokerStars. As you'd expect in a match involving Viktor Blom it was a swingy affair featuring an amazing 85 pots of over $100,000.
After dropping $200k in just 60 hands, Isildur1 worked his way to a $450k profit for the match and over $1.6m to the good since the end of last week. That was as good as it got for the Swede though as Sauce123 went on a huge heater to work his way into a $1.1m lead. Blom wasn't done though and staged a mini comeback to stem his losses to a huge, but could have been much worse $605k.
The pair finally called it quits with Blom telling his American opponent that he hadn't actually slept for three days! Despite the recent loss, Isildur1 is still up over half a million dollars for the past week.
