HighStakes: The new "unknown Swede"

Tags: full tilt poker, high stakes, Isildur1, martonas.
Posted on 28 October 2009 by "T".

A new unknown poker player has start showing up at some of the higher stakes at Full Tilt poker. The nickname of this player is Isildur1, and he/she is from Sweden, just like the other "unknown Swede", Martonas. Isildur1 uses a very, very aggressive style of playing poker, and he/she managed to play over 4000 hands in just 24 hours.

Unfortunately for Isildur1 was that he/she didn't run so well on the $200/$400 NL Hold'Em tables. The Swede lost around $500k in no-time and decided to change game to $100/$200 PL Omaha. There Isildur1 played against Haseeb Qureshi for a couple of hours and managed to win $400k, which eliminated the most of the earlier loss.

wow, Isildur1 is a aggressive player indeed, i mean imagine playing 500k through internet, it must take tons of courage and trust, together with loads of experience.. interesting to see there are "big" players around, maybe this sounds normal to you guys, sorry coz im still a newbie to gambling online..

i wouldn't be surprised if it is the same player as martonas, they did not play against each other or at the same time, right? and martonas also had a very aggressive style (and also lost money quickly). he wouldn't be the first highstakes player with more than one account (and i think full tilt has no problems with that, as long as he brings action to the highstakes).

Thats pretty sick to have that much money moving in & out. These players from Denmark/Sweden and the likes of, sometimes give me some real trouble with there very aggressive styles & i always end up winning big against them or losing big.

Well Well Well, another high steaks player can only be good for full tilt.
It could be another pro from another site testing the water?
But 500K down Ouch'a'roony! that smarts.
PLaying at that level for an aggressive guy is dangeroousa LOL

now and then an aggressive guy comes, has some fun for a little while then losses too much to return back to lowstakes. maybe they could try a bit less aggressive strategy and stay a bit longer

Damn I'm sad i missed it cuz I'm always trying to see Haseeb Quershi play but he's always sit out! :

400k playing 100/200 in a few hours. Is this definitely correct. Thats 2,000 BBs or 20 full stack buy ins. Surely that can't be right?

It's good to see some new players playing at those stakes, but playing that aggressive, no wonder he lost that much
