The Swedish poker player, "Isildur1" keeps on winning big when he's playing against the American high stakes pro, Tom "durrrr" Dwan. It seems like "Isildur1"is very comfortable to play against one of the best high stakes players. When both of them were playing heads-up on Wednesday night and the Finnish poker pro Ilari Sahamies took a seat at their table, "Isildur1" instantly wrote in the chat tha[...] Read more » High Stakes: Dwan had to borrow money from Ilari Sahamies

High stakes players borrow money from each other all the time. they just dont keep all their bankroll online. I've seen a lot of times where ziggie asked to borrow from patrik and durrr when he lost a lot from his drunk sessions lol.

-4.48mill for the year -5.70mill loss in 14 days. Durrrr is in a big hole, and has been for some while, this is not his first loan, as I said in anouther poast a while back he took a loan and was playing big games behind doors HS on FT look normall copmpared to stake he was playing, and he was losing. Durrrr is broke. belive or not, but its true..... If He is lucky McSnakey might loanl him some free chips.

hehe isildur is just so hot and durrr dont know how to do. Hard situation : really hard to understand how they can play so much and i m asking myself how much Dwan have still in his bankroll... borrow is bad
HMM... I personally think that everyone overrates isildur1 a little, he is a good player, no doubt about that, BUT.... he comes from nowhere, that means no one knew a s**t about his playstyle and he was much more motivated at the beginning, than PA & durrrr etc., to crush the high stakes tables at FTP, since hes a newcomer and thats the reason why he had such a great start. Look at him now, since yesterday it is getting a little harder for him, he lost a little, then won, but most of the time he is breakeven or "little winnings" (at least compared to the days before).
My prediction is that he'll lose a couple of millions the next few days, maybe 2 or 3. He wont be able to keep his upswing, PA and durrrr do have a read on him now (even I'm getting to understand his game, hes massively aggressive player and he does a lot of semi-bluffs. his playstyle is the very same as iveys playstyle, they are both hardcore maniacs. thats why hes trying to avoid ivey as much as possible. ) and they'll do all to take their pride back, I'm 100% sure. It will be some sort of "martonas-effect"... Lets see what happens, I might be wrong, though..
