Isildur1 is still going strong

Isildur1 (a.k.a. The Unknown Swede) is still doing very well at Full Tilt's highest stakes, and it seems like he is here to stay unlike the other unknown Swede, Martonas. Last Saturday, Isildur1 took on Patrik Antonius and Tom "durrrr" Dwan and emptied both their accounts and ended up around $2,5 million plus. However, he lost a lot of those winnings to Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies in Omaha just a few moments later. It only took "Ziigmund" about 600 hands to take $1,5 million from the unknown Swede. Even though Isildur1 lost so much to Ziigmund", he was still $1 million dollars plus for the day.

Many people that have been following Isildur1 at Full Tilt poker can't understand why he's playing against Ziigmund when he's winning big against almost all other players? The answer for this question might be that the unknown Swede is looking for revenge and want to win back the money he has lost, or it might have something to do with pride? 

Tony G vs Isildur1
The most "interesting" heads-up match Isildur1 has played in the past few days has to be the one against Tony G. The Omaha heads-up game only lasted for 20 hands, then Tony G realized that he's playing in a lower division than Isildur1 and that he's not prepared for the swings at these high stakes.

"I jumped in the 300/600 on Full Tilt and lost about 30k or so and did not feel good about playing so I am out of those games but I wanted to try it to see how it feels and have played a few hands over the last five days but it is of no value for me right now; maybe another time"; Tony G wrote in his blog after the game against Isildur1.

Going strong?

I would not judge losing over two millions against Ziigmund and Antonius today as "going strong". As long as he can't take Dwans money, he will bleed his chips against the other regulars.

Isildur1 (a.k.a. The Unknown Swede) ????

Tony G seems to know what he is up against and dare not to even try and attempt to tread water with this guy. I'll make a thread with some input on Ilildur1 to see if BRM members agree to some input Tony G has about him.
