11/26/09  -It's a series of clashes between online poker titans that has reenergised interest in Internet high stakes poker, and it appeas to gain rather than lose intensity despite the huge stakes involved – we're talking the NHLE and PLO matches being played out on the Internet nosebleed tables between mystery Swede Isildur1 – who just keeps coming back for more – and names like Ivey, Antonius, Dwan, South and now Townsend.
 
Brit and Full Tilt pro Brian Townsend is the latest to risk a major bankroll against the unknown Swedish player, and he managed to emerge victorious and $1.1 million wealthier after a murderous thousand hand $200/$400 Pot-Limit Omaha midweek session.

The match lacked the massive swings in fortunes experienced in previous confrontations, with Townsend playing a tight, disciplined strategy that paid off across a series of sub-$300 000 pots, none of which reached record breaking heights.
 
Earlier, the Swede had hammered the hapless French pro David Benyamine for $268 000 on the $200/$400 PLO tables, filling in the spare time with some $500/$1 000 NLHE action against Phil Ivey…who lost another $85 000 over the 200 hands.
 
The unfortunate Tom Dwan was back for yet another crack at the Swede, and after Townsend retired with his spoils, Isilidur1was happy to oblige. The two got it on in around 545 hands of $300/$600 PLO which saw Isildur1 take Dwan for another $175 000.
 
Isildur1 finally called it a day after a clash on the $500/$1 000 PLO tables with Ilari Sahamies, where his good fairy failed and he went down $267 000.
 
Due mainly to his losing streak against Townsend, the mysterious Swede's results for this session as recorded by MarketPulse showed a loss of some $976 000.
