"Isildur1" Wins, Loses Million Dollar Pot This Past WeekendPublished on 2009-11-23 06:54:00
There was more crazy cash game action on Full Tilt Poker this past weekend. As is usually the case these days, "Isildur1" was right in the middle of all of it.
There were two million dollar plus pots this weekend, and both involved "Isildur1".
"Isildur1" lost the largest of the two, a $1.35 million dollar pot against Patrik Antonius. This was, by far, the largest ever online poker cash game pot, easily smashing a record that Antonius and "Isildur1" had set just a few short days earlier.
As if that wasn't enough, "Isildur1" and Phil Ivey tangled in a $1.13 million dollar pot on Sunday. This time, "Isildur1" was able to win the pot, and can now lay claim to being involved in the two largest online cash game pots ever.
Here is a summary of the two hands that led to the massive pots:
1. Antonius Wins $1,356,946.50.
Game: $500/$1000 PLO
Both players were on extremely deep stacks when this hand went down. "Isildur1" had about $678k, while Antonius had $1.26 million in front of him.
After a bunch of pre-flop raising, the flop came:
Antonius led out with a bet, and before anyone could blink, the two players were all-in.
Antonius showed: Ah-3s-Ks-Kh for a five-high straight, a pair of Kings and a couple of back-door flush draws
"Isildur1" showed 6d-9s-7d-8h for a wrap straight draw
The turn brought the 5h and the river brought the 9c, giving Antonius the record-breaking $1.35 million dollar pot with his straight.
2. "Isildur1" Wins $1,127,955.00.
Game: $500/$1000 PLO
"Isildur1" was sitting on about $640k, while Ivey had about $564k in front of him.
After some pre-flop raising, there was $54,000 in the pot when the flop came:
Both players checked the flop.
The turn brought the 10d. "Isildur1" checked, Ivey bet $41,000, "Isildur1" raised to $177,000 and Ivey called.
The river was the 5d. This time, "Isildur1" led out with a bet of $408,000. Ivey thought for a bit and eventually made the call.
"Isildur1" showed Kd-4d-5h-Kc for a flopped full house, Kings full of Jacks.
Another great weekend of cash game action on Full Tilt Poker that completely overshadowed everything else that took place in the online poker world.
