Ike Haxton Beats Dan "d2themfi" Isaacson Once Again at PLO

After some initial success over Ike "philivey2694" Haxton at PokerStars $100/$200 PLO tables last week, Daniel "d2themfi" Isaacson hasn't been able to replicate his victory of late and in Tuesday's games he once again lost out to Haxton as Ike ended as the day's biggest highstakes winner, showing a total profit of $85.3k.

The pair played together for five hours starting late morning and playing through most of the afternoon playing two tables at a time, swapping both tables three times in total in 808 hands.

Although Isaacson made the biggest individual table profit, winning $80k from just over two hours at table Medea II, Haxton made decent five-figure profits from the other five tables played to give him his overall $85k profit.

The biggest pot of the day actually went to d2themfi from his winning table, Medea II:

Although Haxton ended up victorious again, this match was by no means a one-sided affair, although Haxton was always ahead. He rushed to an $80k profit within the first hour before d2themfi won back $70k over the next 40 minutes before Haxton once again hit a big upswing to hit a high of +$110k after 2.5 hours of play. The next hour and twenty minutes, however, belonged to Isaacson, as he brought things within a whisker of being even before Haxton, once again hit another upswing over the final hour and ten minutes to end the match with his $85.3k profit.

Second on yesterday's leaderboard was German pro RaulGonzales who won $52.4k at the $300/$600 FLO8 and 2-7TD tables where he played against the likes of Gus "broksi" Hansen, Timofey "Trueteller" Kuznetsov, and Chun Lei "SamRostan" Zhou.

In third we see Alex "BiatchPeople" Luneau, who earned $38.9k after a long day at the FLO8, 2-7 TD, and 8-Game tables.
