12/6/09 – After taking some horrendous bankroll hits last week the mysterious Swedish online high stakes player Isildur1 took a brief break, but was back on Full Tilt's nosebleed section once more as the week closed. Pokerstars
 
Unfortunately for the man the whole poker sector is talking about, the break did little to change his luck, and the Swede remained in the red after having a go on several tables involved in six-max $50/$100 Pot-Limit Omaha and heads up $100/$200 NLHE action against the likes of Rafi ‘howisitfeelike' Amit that saw him go down a further $90 000.
 
Then he started a $200/$400 PLO session head to head with Brian Hastings, quickly going down another $256 000 but despite this challenging Hastings to up to 300/600, a sally that Hastings was happy to meet. Rafi Amit tried to crash the game about 2 hours in and levels were switched again before the duo ended up in real nosebleed action on the $500/1 000 tables.
 
When we went to press Isildur1 was down well over $300 000 to Hastings, and by late evening the duo had again switched to 300/600 NLHE, a game where Isildur1 is reported to be particularly strong.
 
Elsewhere on the site, MarketPulse reported that Tom Dwan had better luck, mainly on the 7-Game tables, and finally left the session up $484 744 on the night.
 
Brit Internet pro Brian Townsend, who during the week has hammered Isildur1 repeatedly, left the Swede alone but still managed to end the night over $254 747 in the black ink, bringing his profit for the year so far to almost $4.5 million in a style of play that may be unspectacular but has definitely been successful.
 
Update: Latest MarketPulse numbers show that Hastings ended his night against Isildur1 in profit to the tune of $264 044, with Isidur in the red over the night at -$594 454 – another serious beating.
