Full Tilt Poker part 2 went live today, November 6. While there was not quite as much high stakes action as anticipated, we did get treated to some good heads up no limit action between Isildur1 and Ireadyrsoul, also known as Kanu7. The two battled it out at the 100/200 heads up tables for most of the afternoon and into the night. After the long day, Isildur1 escaped with about 30k in profits, although the two were neck and neck after adjusting for expected value, according to Ireadyrsoul. Although it was good to see Isildur1 back at the hold’em tables, I’m not sure we can expect to see too much of that, as it appeared he migrated that way due to the lack of pot limit Omaha action today. One thing is for sure however, while Blom has a bankroll, we can expect to see plenty of him at the tables, as well as an increasing amount of nosebleed action, once all the regulars make their way back to Full Tilt.
As for the two other pros signed by Full Tilt, Gus Hanson put in a few hours at the tables today, but did not fare so well. He managed to drop over 200k between the draw and plo tables. As for Tom “durrrr” Dwan, he is staying in the U.S. for the week and expects to be playing online by next week. He did say he is excited to get to the tables for some online action and hopefully his presence will generate some good high stakes games. Tom has been absent from the online scene as of late, so it should be interesting to see if his game is still sharp enough to beat the high stakes online games, or if he has faded some after playing so many live hours against the fish in Macau. Either way, it should make for some great story lines that we will be bringing you over the coming days.
