Even though many of the poker world's biggest high stakes stars are in Vegas at the moment, there are still some decent high stakes games running online. Yesterday, for example, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom took on Rui "PepperoniF" Cao in heads-up match of Pot-Limit Omaha at PokerStars. The game was quite even at first, but after about 1000 hands had been played Isildur1 had full control over the game. When the match had been running for about 4 hours, PepperoniF called it a day and Viktor Blom left the table with a $271k profit.
However, Isildur1 had no plans whatsoever to stop playing since he took on Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky at the $50/$100 No-Limit Hold'em tables. Isildur1 took the command almost straight away and had a $100k lead after 500 hands. But then everything started going Sauce123's ways. Sauce123 won pot after pot and Isildur1 played worse and worse. After 1642 hands of play, the Swedish young gun gave up. In total, he lost $242k to Ben Sulsky, who ended up having one of his best paydays this year - all thanks to Isildur1.
Anyhow, Isildur1 still booked a $30k profit for the day. But he must have hated himself for not stopping when he was close to $400,000 plus.
