Isildur1 Loses $200,000

Isildur1 may be hailed by many as one of the most talented online poker players in the industry, but then his recent performance at the virtual felts was less than impressive. Since the Swedish pro joined Team PokerStars, he’s been having quite a bit of a losing streak lately. In fact, he’s fresh off a huge loss of $210,000, courtesy mostly of gavz101 and due partly to Sauce123.

Big Swings

Isildur1 is well-known for his hyper aggressive style in playing poker. His technique worked really well at Full Tilt poker, where the players just generally seemed a lot crazier. Case in point: Tom Dwan. Blom really managed to milk a lot of money from the well-known poker pro. Both had aggressive styles, but it seemed that he just really got a handle of Dwan’s technique. However, Blom did not fare so well against Phil Ivey or Patrik Antonius. However, since Blom changed sides and went to PokerStars, life seemed to have taken a downward turn for him. He still was having many swings, but then most of them geared towards the negative. He was actually able to break even just earlier this week.

But then now he’s back in the negatives after putting in a session against his rival in PokerStars, Gavin “gavz101” Cochrane. He logged a 5,751 hand session against several opponents, mostly playing $50/$100 Pot Limit Omaha. When he played against Cochrane, however, Blom lost $187,000. Then, he decided to play against Sauce123, hoping to offset his losses. But then he only ended up losing some more money. At the end of the night, he was down once again by $210,000.

Winners and Losers

Of course, with the WSOP drawing near, some online players are beginning to take some time off the virtual felts in order to prepare for what’s to come. Antonius and Rui Cao, for example, were very inactive this past week because they were preparing for the WSOP. Still, they shold be back and gracing the felts with freshly earned money in a matter of weeks, so it’s unlikely that we’ll be missing them at all. Gavz101, quite oddly, was having a hard time at the 6-max games and ended up with only $53,000 profit after that win against Antonius. It’s a bit regrettable that we won’t be seeing much action online as September draws near. But then again, we’ll be watching the WSOP, so there’s hardly any reason to complain.
