11/15/09 – Isildur1, the mystery Swedish high stakes player who this week bit into Tom Dwan's Full Tilt online poker account for a cool $3 million spread the pain around Friday night, taking cash from other well known names.
Patrik Antonius, Phil Ivey, Brian Townsend and Phil Galfond all had a go at the Swedish phenom, with Townsend enjoying the most success by taking Isildur1 for $339 000 over almost 1 350 hands of $200/$400 Pot-Limit Omaha.
Phil Galfond had less good fortune, ending up paying the Swede $162 000 on 478 hands of $300/$600 PLO, and that was followed by a 614 hand session of $500/$1 000 PLO against Patrik Antonius that cost the Finn $435 000. Switching to NLHE, the duo played heads up with Antonius coming off second-best to the tune of $183 000, donating a total of $618 000 to the Isilidur1.
Later in the evening Antonius was to make a determined return, choosing the $500/$1 000 Pot Limit Omaha tables to do so in a further 80 hands against Isildur1. He was able to recoup $267 000 before the two went at it again on the $300/$600 NLHE tables, where Antonius managed to cut his losses by a further $100 000 to finally pay his opponent a total of $686 000 on the night.
Phil Ivey was next on the hit list, playing a 105 hand NLHE that cost him $22 000.
Tom Dwan stayed away from Isildur1 Friday, but mixed it up with DjAdi and Ilari Sahamies heads-up on PLO, continuing his losing run as he lost $200 000 to DjAdi and another $178 000 to Sahamies
