High Stakes: Isildur1 on very low stakes

Tags: broke, Full Tilt poker, Isildur1, low stakes, Tony G.
Posted on 28 January 2010 by "T".

Isildur1 probably doesn't need a closer presentation since he was the most talked-about person in the end of 2009 thanks to the millions of dollars he won and lost in no-time. Anyhow, we all know that Isildur1 ended up losing everything he had won, and also that he lost about 2 million dollars from his own bankroll. After this, Isildur1 disappeared from the high stakes scene for a while, and then he returned a few weeks later playing $5/$10 NL. This time, the unknown Swede lost about $400 and didn't seem to care about the money at all (who can blame him?).

Now, after a few weeks of complete silence, he's once again back at the poker tables. But, unfortunately, it's on even lower stakes than last time - $0,25/$0.50 NL Holdem. Isildur1 sat down at the table with $10, which he lost later on after that his pair of kings was beaten by three of a kind 5's.

Not many poker players who have followed Isildur1 (including myself) from the beginning believe that he will make a comeback playing high stakes. But who knows? Some of the best poker players in the world said that Isildur1 has a huge talent and that he just need to take care of his bankroll and avoid playing so long sessions. Some of them even said that he easily could build up a bankroll of 1 million dollars in less than a year - with a small bankroll to start off with. Well, I think it will be hard for him to stay focused and play his very best game if he's going to play on these low stakes. The best thing for Isildur1 would probably be if someone (Tony G?) could stake him so that he could play at least $25/$50 or $50/$100. In other words, give him a last chance at the high stakes. 

Please write your personal opinions about the Unknown Swede, Isildur1.

Poor guy...I still can't believe how much he managed to lose in those few months of internet poker fame. Anyone knows where he got his initial stake/bankroll?
 Davoodoo28/01/2010 21:13:53 GMT
Im pretty sure hes totally out of money and only play for the sake of playing ... very bad gambling addiction.

But where did he get all the money from the start ? Most likely like this guy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Molony

The new stu ungar ... i guess in a couple of years when everybody have totally forgotten about him people will say that he is the best poker player that has ever lived (or is living).

I dont feel sorry for this guy at all ...
 river_mantel28/01/2010 21:24:46 GMT
might just be playing so low to see what all the curtain twitchers in the street that never have and never will play at the level he aspired too are gossiping about now.
 leroi2128/01/2010 22:39:45 GMT

He got lucky and then got greedy, he wont make it again

You can be very very good, but there is no way, you got to manage your bankroll, that's needed as a poker player. If he can't do this, he can't be one of the best
 shecansayyes29/01/2010 02:13:28 GMT
he will probably turn back via another new nickname
 oliver08229829/01/2010 11:29:57 GMT

 georget29/01/2010 12:05:14 GMT
There was a Isildur2222 playing a freeroll on noble the other day???????????
 xxxbchxxx31/01/2010 02:45:50 GMT
Good I hope he doesn't make a come back.
he obviously couldn't handle those sort of stakes, He was obviously out classed and out punched. He thought he was some kind of "poker Don" but he was just a flash in the pan.
Laters Isidur.
 SuperNoob31/01/2010 14:15:11 GMT
building bankroll takes time, no matter how much skilled you are unless you get lucky. though he must be having some money at other sites, think he'll wait for fulltilt to sort out tht townsend case before moving more money here
 Rubberdeck02/02/2010 06:24:18 GMT
Dont forget theres something called addiction and when being addicted to anything you cant resist whatever the cosequences....
 BhStaljin02/02/2010 21:17:43 GMT

He maybe is a good player...but his misteke is that he cannot control himself...and cannot control

his bankroll to last long enough especially now when he plays on low stakes....

he just don't have enough patient to play a good poker on low stakes
 Andriukassss02/02/2010 21:54:52 GMT
so en? Blink
 ZmxPowah02/02/2010 22:43:27 GMT
Anyone know how he is going now?
I think he sold the account for some cash... or something... playing so low stakes? Even with the looses i am sure he can play higher.
 str8jacket03/02/2010 00:15:35 GMT
He got cheated on full tilt?
 Predobar03/02/2010 00:20:11 GMT
Isildur here you come
 str8jacket03/02/2010 00:20:14 GMT
sorry u mean townsend etc cheated him and full tilt should give him it back.... why?
Because they are pro's on the site? It will be a big legal battle if he tries that....
Apparently he lost it all.... damn i'd of took a break every million at least and stuck it in my bank.... fuck man!
 majdo09/02/2010 12:55:41 GMT

 oliver08229809/02/2010 13:21:40 GMT
Posted by Bainbridge:
he is only 19... i think he needs to mature and see what the world is all about because he got greedy and didnt control his game. when you dont control yourself playing poker thats just a death wish.

Aww crap! poor guy, had it not because of some con he would have still played at high stakes...
 Fackinas09/02/2010 14:09:22 GMT

 loosinggoose14/02/2010 17:42:37 GMT
online poker is full cheats, there is a lot going on that u dont wanna know about.
people always calling with 2.nd or 3.rd pair when u try making a bluff is pretty suspicious i think.
i won 50 000 dollars cashing, just to slowely get sooked out every big pair i get to suited river hitters...
i ve stopped playing, only tourneys from now on.
dont belive it anymore, friends chatting on the side, taking on 1 or 2 players , 4 friends sitting at the same table 3/6 5/10 and such, be aware guys and gl
