But who is Isildur1?

No one knows his identity, but what everyone knows about Isildur1 is that he is a sensation of online poker. The fearless player from Sweden first made a name for himself when he came from nowhere to take over the high stakes tables at Full Tilt. He played the best poker players in the world such as Tom 'durrrr' Dwan, Brian Hastings, Patrik Antonius, Ilari 'Ziigmund' Sahamies and none other than Phil Ivey.

Isildur1 rapidly became a myth of online poker with hundreds of railbirds constantly following his smallest move, dazzled by his pure guts and poker skills that made him generate million dollars bankrolls starting with just a few thousands dollars. A very large crowd of poker afficianados keeps following his matches, and there are not any matches. Isildur1 has had million dollar swings; in fact he has had $5 million dollar swings. He was involved in the largest pot ever contested in online poker when he play Patrik Antonius in a heads-up match where one pot surpassed $1.3 millions.

Isildur1 joins Team Pokerstars

What a surprise then when it was heard that isildur1 had decided to join the prestigious Team Pokerstars as one of their featured pro. After all he made his name thanks to the high stakes table at Full Tilt Poker. His decision to move his poker action to Pokerstars can only be left to speculation, maybe Pokerstars offered him a deal he could not refuse!

After all it is in the interest of Pokerstars to get more action at their high stakes tables. Pokerstars is the global leader of online poker by a number of measures, such as traffic, largest guaranteed tournaments, best team or pros or largest field ever played in a poker tournament (over 190,000 players all at once). But one of the only thing they are lagging behind number two poker room Full Tilt is the nosebleed high stakes ring games.

They have been making a few moves such as creating a special poker section named after Daniel Negreanu to rival Phil's Ivey, but for now most of the high stakes action still takes place at Tilt. Recruiting Isildur1 is a way to build up on their high stakes offering.

Isildur1 is certainly treated as a special pro at Pokerstars, with special events named 'SuperStar Showdown', where he plays in a heads-up challenge against another pro. The match that everyone is now waiting for is his heads-up confrontation against Tony G. When these two arch-rivals meet on the virtual felt, it is clear that there will be blood on the wall.
