Isildur1 Online Poker Rollercoaster Ride: Loses Everything

In his debut as a member of Team PokerStars, the elusive online poker phenom Isildur1 (real identity unknown) has been making some serious waves.

Almost immediately, Isildur1 went on a 14-hour marathon, taking away $275,000 from the online card room that signed him on.

By Friday, he had given it all back.

From the PokerStars.com Blog:

Another huge rail today and last night watched as the new Team PokerStars Pro played heads-up Pot Limit Omaha across mostly four tables at once. The games switched from $25/$50 up to $100/$200, and from shallow stacked to deep-stacked tables.

When all was said and done, I reckon Isildur1 was down approaching $300,000 on the session.

So if 'King of the Swingers' Isildur1 was the big loser, who was the big winner? Step forward Phil 'MrSweets28' Galfond, the high stakes pro who has a rather handy habit of doing quite nicely at PLO. Despite being a little tired, Galfond kindly agreed to let me use his graph of the session against Isildur1.
