Isildur1 won't attend PartyPoker Big Game

Posted on 12 April 2010 by "T".

Tony G announced a while ago that the mystery swede Isildur1 was going to come and play in the televised poker show Party Poker Big Game. The deal was that Tony G was going to stake him for 48 hours and also pay for everything else (hotel, flight, food etc). Isildur1 was really happy with Tony G's offer as he even told him he could play without a mask and reveal himself.

So, we were finally going to see who the man behind the ninja avatar at Full Tilt Poker was. The man who lost and won millions of dollars in no-time and also has been in the headlines almost every single week since he crushed durrrr back in 2009. Well, unfortunately Isildur1 decided to drop out in the last minute through an SMS to Tony G. It's not hard to understand that Tony G feels "bluffed" and disappointed after reading his latest blog post.


"I really thought he was coming to play the PartyPoker Big Game and we had worked everything out with Eddie Hearn, managing director and organizer of Matchroom Sport, and he would be allowed to play in a mask if he wanted and we were going to raise the stakes when he came in because he had said he didn't think the stakes were big enough for him.  We had a 50/50 staking deal.
Then I got a SMS from him "sry for not coming, take care bud." It was a personal message to me and then management got involved as is expected in an event as big as this, and it's true, he is not coming.
I have been bluffed before but I was counting on Isi to be there and this bluff is really disappointing to me.  I am taking it personally.  I'm not happy about it since he reached out to me and asked and then we spent some time working out details and he agreed to play. I had planned to fly Isi and three of his friends to London and we were ready to go. So the PartyPoker Big Game IV at Les Ambassadeurs in London will be minus one mystery guest and some of the anticipation and excitement will be missing, but not for long."

"Leatherass" is playing. The "sandwich guy" FullFlush is playing. Tilly is showing her top pair, and all folks are talking about a guy that isn't even there. Confused

Hello everybody!
He was scared at the last moment. Or so he likes to annoy Tony G. I do not think that someone would be angry against him for this last assumption lol.
See you soon for new posts lol!

 SuperNoob13/04/2010 02:24:41 GMT
he must be feeling really stupid after all this and will surely never offer to stake him again.
isildur should have never made promise to come if he wasnt gonna come
 oliver08229813/04/2010 03:17:07 GMT
of course he wont come; even if he wore a mask, his identity would definitely be revealed...
