Isildur1's cash game rollercoaster ride continues
Viktor "Isildur1" Blom had yet another up and down experience on the online felt on Friday. At one time, the Swede was up $160,000, but eventually he ended with a loss of $138,483.
Friday night the Swedish phenomenon Viktor "Isildur1" Blom once again played one of his famous marathon sessions at the cash game tables on PokerStars.
Blom started out against "mTw-DavIN" $25/$50, cleaning the unknown player for $60,000 in around 2,5 hours of play.
Next in line to be taken down by the Swede was French high stakes gambler Rio "PepperoniF" Cao, whom Blom recently defeated for $150,000 in the SuperStar Showdown Challenge. Unfortunately for the Frenchman, Isildur1 once again came out the conqueror; bagging another $100,000 this made his – at the time - total wins for the night $160,000.
With the wisdom of hindsight, the Swedish cash game specialist should have stopped after this victory - while the going was still good. But after one hour away from the tables the high stakes gambler returned and started a 4,5 hours' long battle against "Volanthn" and "alexeimartov", also on the PLO $25/$50 stakes. This time Blom was less lucky and ended up suffering a provoking $170,000 defeat.
Following, a probably steamed Blom moved up in stakes to $50/$100 PLO, where he commenced a new fight, this time against Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky. But the downswing continued for Mr Blom and after this three hours' PLO clash, Isildur1 left the table with a total loss for the day of $138,483.
The largest hand in the session against Sulsky reached $93,384. The two combatants ended all-in on a board showing [9h] [kd] [3h]. Sulsky revealed [tc] [8h] [9d] [9s] while Isildur1 was in really bad shape with a smaller set, tabling [3s] [2h] [3c] [8d]. Sulsky had to dodge a one-outer, which he did since the turn and river came [6s] [kc].
Sulsky consequently became the biggest winner last night with $145,819 in plus, followed by the two other Isildur1 combatants "Volanthn" and "alexeimartov" with $125,640 and $46,360 respectively.
