A legend signs up with the king of poker rooms online; Well known online card room Pokerstars.com has often impressed the global community of poker with many accomplishments but nobody had expected that the worlds busiest online poker room would manage to sign up the legend behind the name “Isildur1″; Isildur1, who is rumored to be the Swede Victor Blom, has brought the online poker community upside down more than 5 times in a row in the recent year when about a year ago he participated in the largest online stakes against the biggest names in the poker business following up with incidents of major turbulence to online poker.
Although the beginning for Isildur1 was quite exciting when he won the biggest portion of Tom “durrrr” Dwan’s bankroll the next events were disappointing as Isildur put his bankroll on fire In a heads up game of $500/$1.000 Pot Limit Omaha played against Phil Ivey, “Ziigumnd” and Patrik Antonius, all at the same time. After gradually losing much of his money, he faced Brian Hastings at a session that cost him his presence at online poker games of these stakes. The $4 million which were lost in one night was enough to make him stop and to switch to smaller stake games.
For some time now there have been rumors that the personality called “Isildur1″ will join a well known online poker room as a member of the Pro’s team; early last night rumors had reached their peak, but as of this morning it is official that as from today the online poker phenomenon is an official member of the professional team of Pokerstars after an announcement made to all partnering websites from pokerstars.com. The card room is celebrating this by conducting a cash game, where there is an open challenge/invitation to anyone who wants to play against him.
The popular online card room said also that they MAY reveal the actual name of Isildur1 before January at the PCA, but until then he will be playing on Pokerstars under the name “Isildur1″.
“I decided to respond positively to the invitation to join the team of Pokerstars because it is the largest site and it will be a great challenge for me”, said “Isildur1″. “It’s a very good deal and I will now play against the Daniel Negreanu, Dario Minieri and Johnny Lodden.
