It’s been a while since both Viktor “Isildur1” Blom and Gus Hansen both enjoyed good days at Full Tilt’s high stakes tables, but yesterday they ended up as numbers 1 and 2 on the daily leaderboard. Blom was the day’s biggest winner with a $177.1k win at the mixed game tables.
Once again, Blom’s adversary was Alexander “PostflopAction” Kostritsyn, and this time the pair played for a little over four hours during two evening sessions, punctuated only by a change of table.
Although it was a swingy match, PostflopAction never managed anything other than breaking even throughout the match, as Isildur1 built a near $200k lead with just over an hour of the match gone. However, the lead was short lived, as PostflopAction responded well, wiping out Blom’s lead as the young Russian momentarily took the lead in the match at around the half way mark. The final two hours, though, saw the Full Tilt pro rebuild his big lead, and he eventually ended the match with a $177k win.
Gus Hansen made all his money from the limit games. His early games were all heads-up at the 2-7 Triple Draw tables. He won $26k from Kagome Kagome in a morning session, and ended up, after a back and forth battle with PostflopAction, with a total of $94.4k profit from the Triple Draw tables after three afternoon bouts with the young Russian.
After a couple of hours hiatus from the tables, Hansen was back, to take on KPR16 at the FLO8 tables. He started the match well, adding a further $60k to his daily haul, before KPR16 hit a good run, which totally wiped out Hansens’s daily profit, and plunged him into the red by around $30k for the day.
During the last 40 hands of their 215 hand battle, however, Hansen hit a huge run of cards which enabled him to end the session up $42k and up $136.4k
There were no other six figure winners yesterday.
