As the famous saying goes, you can’t keep a good unknown player from Sweden down … or something to that affect. In the aftermath of his $2.7 million loss to Patrik Antonius , high-stakes newcomer Isildur1 bounced back in a big way to keep himself in the black overall with victories against Cole South , Tom “durrrr” Dwan , Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies , and even Antonius himself. But the carnage didn’t go down without some wild swings, and Isildur1 proved that resiliency can go a long way in the turbulent world of high-stakes online cash games.Not one to shy away from the action, Phil Ivey (pictured right) found some time to take on the mysterious Isildur1 in some $500-$1,000 no-limit hold’em on Full Tilt Poker . The first big pot went to Ivey when Isildur1 rivered a flush. That same card gave Ivey a boat, and he was paid off to the tune of a $461,000 pot. Later in that session, Ivey got the Swede to bluff off his stack with second pair after he turned a straight, giving him an additional $442,000 to work with. The two only played fewer than 1,000 hands together in the short session, but Ivey logged off with about $900,000 of Isildur1’s money.Things got even grimmer for him when he decided to battle it out with Cole South and Tom Dwan (pictured left) . Against South, Isildur1 found himself down over $1 million. Against Dwan he was down nearly $1.5 million. Despite being stuck so much, he managed to rebound in a big way not only to get back to even, but even win a little bit, as well. South ended up shipping him $550,000, and Dwan added an additional $160,000 when all was said and done.You’d think the events of the day were enough to make the man want to take a break, but not Isildur1. He then decided to take on the Fins, Patrik Antonius and Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies (pictured below right) heads up, simultaneously, on six different tables. For most, that’s a recipe for disaster, but for Isildur1, it was a big boost to his bankroll.In just over 3,000 hands of $500-$1,000 pot-limit Omaha, the Swede got some mild revenge against Antonius, racking up a $330,000 win, but that was nothing compared to the damage he did against Sahamies, who was forced to give over $1 million to his adversary. The most disheartening moment for Sahamies was when both players flopped a diamond flush. The money went in, and Isildur1 was awarded the massive pot with the nuts.All told, Isildur1’s five total opponents combined to earn him nearly $1.2 million in the last 36 hours. That amounts to about $4 million in earnings over the last four weeks.
