11/24/09 – Saturday's world record online poker pot of $1.356 million generated by Isildur1 and Patrik Antonius  was almost eclipsed Sunday night in another Isildur1 vs. Phil Ivey clash. Pokerstars
 
The night's session started when Tom Dwan and Isildur1 met on the Internet nosebleed tables at Full Tilt Poker in a confrontation that saw Isildur1's aggressive and utterly fearless style of play beat down Dwan, who eventually retired after losing $770 000.

Speculation that Isildur1‘s bankroll must have been severely dented in earlier clashes with top players seemed not to figure in the Swedish player's strategy at all.
 
Isildur1 then moved on to confront Phil Ivey on the $500/$1 000 No-Limit Hold'em tables, where the two battled it out for 1 431 hands, with Ivey up $900 000, after which play switched to Pot Limit Omaha.
 
Ivey seemed to be in control until the duo got into a pot that was eventually worth $1.1 million – the second largest ever – which Isildur1 took to reverse Ivey's fortunes, although ice-cool Ivey still left the heads up with a $337 000 profit.
 
Overall, thanks mainly to his winnings from Dwan, Isildur1 was up more than $430 000 on the night, ameliorating some of his earlier losses.

Isildur1, apart from setting the Internet alight with his high stakes hubris, has now been a particpant in all of the top ten largest online poker pots ever…and all over the past week!
