Yesterday the first game of two was played between the American high stakes regular Scott "urnotindangr" Palmer and PokerStars own Viktor "Isildur1" Blom. It was a swingy 2,500-hand game that saw multiple two-outers, aces cracked, and a $59,000 pot. Blom picked up most of the big pots, however, Palmer picked up many mid-sized pots and gave Blom a very tough match. When 2,500 hands had been played, and after the official chip count was announced, it was Scott "urnotindangr" Palmer who had won with a $5,425 profit.

Next Sunday it's time for the second game between Blom and Palmer. It will for sure be an even more thrilling game to watch. We will most probably see a much more aggressive game from Isildur1 since he now has lost 2 games in a row. Scott Palmer is probably aware of this and he might avoid putting too much chips at risk in a single hand.

Isilidur was up over $35,000 with over 400 hands to go so he must of got sloppy I saw what they said when they showed stats. So Palmer made a hell of comeback. Blink

Of course luck is a big part of poker.. But not as big as many players might think.. A good poker pro is able to win several hands by intimidating their opponents even though his hand is the second best Smile

That is not a big difference in money size concerning the $5k profit, so next week the rematch will be super competetive

Both Isildur1 and Urnotindanger are on minus on 2011 according to all track sites. In February Viktor Blom earned 1.2 Million dollars from Scott Palmer in just couple of days at 25/50 Pot Limit Omaha tables on Pokerstars. Unfortunately Isildur1 lost most of them in the next two weeks on both PLO and NLHE.
On the other hand Scott Palmer started to recover the money he lost at the beggining of the year. A few fays ago he won 488.000 dollars on Full Tilt Poker at the high stakes PLO tables.
That being said, one thing is clear: Isildur got to start winning some $$$.
I personally thing this sunday match will also end pretty close. Both players are great heads-up NLHE and PLO players.
