On thursday, Viktor "isildur1" Blom took on Ben "Bttech86" Tollerene at Full Tilt's $500/$1000 CAP PLO tables. After about 1 hour of play Blom had won $60k from Tollerene and they agreed to open 2 new tables. Blom's lead had increased to around $200,000 after 2 hours of play and, once again, the two decided to split and open up new tables.

Blom is back to the top of the biggest winners ranking, the place that many define as his place only. The truth is he needs to play very well and win a lot to achieve it, it’s not something that he gets easily. Although the numbers on the news are extremely high, and this last five hour session involved a lot of money, the truth is he’s only $200k ahead from PostflopAction. $200k in $4M is peanuts, he better watch out if he wants to keep that place for a long time.

so he won all of those $1.7 million from 1 guy and on top of that he completely destroyed him winning hand after hand...and i was sad to lose $0.02 sng...i imagine it takes a lot of vodka to forget a loss of $1.7 million...not just another bad day at the office...

Oh my God! How this is possible? When I played the promotion PokerStars Team Vs. Full Tillt Poker Team, my three bets were for Full Tillt Poker Team. And they lose. So I didn't get the prize of the promotion.
But now Isildur wins $ 1.7 Million. If there is a promotion like this next time I will bet for PokerStars Team.

Like if Isildur1 is expected to win at a rate of 3bb/100 at non-cap, but only at a rate of 1bb/100 for cap, then cap is most certainly going to be more swingy. That being said, obviously the bigger the stacks get in non-cap the fewer hands it's going to take for someone to win/lose $1,O00,000. Let's hope there's good action to come in the near future!
