Tony G has been interested in staking the mysterious Swede in cash games online for a long time. However, it remains unclear if they have agreed on something. Now, Tony G is offering to stake Isildur1 in the televised cash game The PartyPoker Big Game IV. Tony G writes in his blog that he will pay for the flight, accommodation and stake him for the 48 hour cash game. Tony G has even contacted one of the tournament organizers and fixed so that Isildur1 can wear a mask or something else in order to keep his identity hidden and remain unknown.
"Isildur1 - get over to the UK for April 11-13th for the PartyPoker Big Game IV at Les Ambassadeurs in London. I will pay for your flights, I will pay for your hotel - I will even stake you totally for the 48 hour cash game. I want to experience the chance to see your brilliant online game in the live environment.
I know Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport has been in touch and I can truly say you will be amongst friends if you come over. If you don't want to reveal your true identity you don't have too - Eddie says you can wear a mask or whatever you choose to disguise yourself."; writes Tony G in his blog
"We will protect your anonymity at all costs if this is what you would prefer. Perhaps you can wear my Kermit the Frog outfit from the Premier League? Yes, coverage of this cash game will go out on television all over the world but if you don't show your face you have nothing to lose!
If you do agree to come I am happy to get a special Isildur1 mask made for you just for the special occasion. We know each other well and you know I love your style and I hope you come. We'll even talk to the owners of Les Ambassadeurs and get the venue renamed Les Isildur1's for the night.
Let me make one thing clear though. If I stake you I still want to crush you and make you bleed from the mask...and I will!"
