12/1/09 – The roller coaster that is Isildur1 hit the online poker high stakes tables again Sunday in three epic clashes with Finnish pro Ilari Sahamies that saw millions cross the table…and back again. Pokerstars
 
In two different million dollar confrontations, the two started playing over 4 different $500/$1 000 Pot-Limit Omaha tables that saw some spectacular bluffs and calls, including one massive pot of almost $710 000 – taken by Sahamies. But it didn't help the Finn to win, as Isildur1 dominated the 1 060 hand exchange to finish the session with $1.3 million of the Finn's bankroll, according to MarketPulse statistics.
 
Never one to take a beating easily, Sahamies was back for another try just over an hour later and the duo resumed the battle on the Full Tilt $500/$1 000 PLO tables, this time in a session that lasted for only half-an-hour. And again Sahamies took a pounding, breaking off when he was down $111 000.
 
The fighting Finn stewed over his second defeat for less than two hours before logging on again, presumably in an attempt to recoup his losses to the mystery Swede. And he did it handsomely, taking Isildur1 on over 1 882 hands in three hours of heavy $500/$1 000 PLO action across five virtual tables to win back $1.3 million from his Swedish opponent.
 
The hammering still left Isildur1 almost $630 000 up on the night, and in profit of almost $2 million overall since his dramatic appearance on Full Tilt in September this year on a high stakes thriller of a journey that has seen his bankroll as high at one time as $5 million.
