Isildur1 Joins Poker Stars' Pro Team
On the 2+2 Forum, the thread "Who is Isildur1 on fulltilt?" has 1,449 comments. Soon we'll have the answer.
Poker Stars has just announced that online poker phenom Isildur1 has joined Team PokerStars Pro.
"I chose to join PokerStars because it's the biggest site and it will be an exciting challenge. It means a great deal to be playing in a team alongside players such as Daniel Negreanu, Dario Minieri and Johnny Lodden," Isildur1 says in the press release.
PokerStars will wait to unveil his real identity, although the online poker community seems pretty sure Swedish poker pro Viktor Blom is behind the nick.
So we can't be 100% certain - only around 99.9%.
On PokerStars, Isildur1 will play a series of heads-up matches specially designed for him (or her?)
The game is called SuperStar Showdown and consists of single sessions of 2,500 hands at stakes no lower than $50/$100.
The first match starts December 19 and the opponent will be named in the coming days.
Could it be Daniel Negreanu? At least he's thrilled to have Isildur1 on his team:
"It's not every day that a player like Isildur1 comes along. If you look up the definition of the term 'phenom' you'll see a picture of his face! When he is playing, the poker world takes notice. Hate to overuse the poker term 'sick' but Isildur's no-limit Hold'em game is just that - sick! Few people step up to the plate against him, but the ones who have, universally have respect for his raw talent."
We'll let you know when Isildur1's identity is uncovered.
