On Monday, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom and Ben "Bttech86" Tollerene once again played some epic heads-up matches at Full Tilt Poker's nosebleed tables. The two high stakes pros began with three $200/$400 PLO tables and Blom was ahead with $290k after 1,5 hour of play. Tollerene then suggested that they should move on to the $500/$1000 tables instead and Blom accepted.
Tollerene made a small comeback at the $500/$1000 tables, but Blom managed to turn the game around in no-time and increase his lead to about $700,000 in the next few hundred hands. At that point, the young Swede was up over $1.3 million in 24 hours thanks to some other successful sessions earlier that day. In retrospect, he should have called it a day and been happy with the amazing results, because he was about to lose over $1,000,000 to Tollerene in the next few hours...
The turning point came when Tollerene took down a few flips to get some confidence. After more than 1900 hands, Tollerene had taken the lead for the first time in the match. The match came to an end after 7 hours of play and Ben "Bttech86" Tollerene stood tall as the winner of the crazy match with a profit of $318,000! It was a very impressive comeback from the American poker pro! Blom finished the day with a $255.4k profit. Not a bad result, but he must have hated himself for not quitting earlier; i.e., when he was up over a million dollars!
