Reversal of fortune for Swedish phenom

 

Just when it looked as if the unidentified Swedish high stakes online poker ace Isildur1 was recovering this week (see previous InfoPowa reports), he suffered a serious reversal of fortunes on the Full Tilt virtual tables Wednesday.

Less than 24 hours after leaving a successful session up $869 000, the Swedish phenom was back at Full Tilt and facing off against Tom Dwan, Justin Bonomo and Brian Townsend, all intent on lightening his bankroll in a series of heads ups.

Dwan, who has been steadily receovering from a bad patch this year, was the first to tackle Isildur1 in 166 hands of $200/$400 NLHE that saw Dwan profit by $33 000.

Bonomo confronted the Swede next, keen to recoup some of the $567 000 he lost to him Tuesday. The duo tangled for about an hour on six $100/$200 tables, playing 881 hands that ended with Bonomo winning back $233 521, according to MarketPulse reports.

At this point Isildur1 suggested they get serious and move to the $200/$400 NLHE tables, where a further 296 hands was quickly played, but did not help Isildur1, who went down a further $35 000 before Bonomo departed (he later won another $360 000, this time from Dwan) to be replaced by Brian Townsend.

Heads up on the $200/$400 Pot-Limit Omaha tables, Isildur1 faced the Cardrunners instructor, one of the architects of his multi-million dollar demolition by Brian Hastings last year.

Over 934 hands that saw most of the night's big pots, Townsend took the Swede for $651 000, leaving him in the red overall for the night to the tune of $959 645. Biggest pot of the night was a $415 986 that went Townsend's way.

The question now is, will Isildur1 be back for more?
