Most people believe it's Viktor Blom or Victor Blom (w/e), is Isildur1. I don't think so myself.. it's either a group of swedes combining bankrolls or some rich kid, who is underage and doesnt care about money.
Now people on hsdb are asking if Isildur was a made-up character by ft to create action. If so, genious.
This theory is obviously absurd... but there was only 300,000+ people raling the last Hastings/Isildur match.
So why wouldn't ft do this? It seems like great marketing if you ask me. I know 100 to 1 they are not behind the Isildur fiasco but really.. maybe?? Until someone actually proves they were him.. i just dunno.
I do know if I worked for ft and the high stakes action was dying.... this seems like the obvious solution.
Maybe Isildur is the son of the majority share holder of ft.. and he tells him "try to win every hand son, it's recycled money anyway"...lol
