MaisE is the alias of a player that has dominated on PokerStars nosebleed tables in the past 2 weeks. In fact, last week he won $471,892 (of which $344k comes from $50/$100 and $100/$200 PLO games last Sunday) and beat the second most successful player with about $200,000!

Big successful action for an unknown player! Do we have here a new “Isildur1” case? Looks like it. I don’t want to advance any names that can possibly fit in this profile, but we have had a hand full of less known players winning big tourneys, which gave them the necessary background (money in the account) to try higher flights. If this levels don’t have that much players regularly, I believe the level below this suffers from the same, although we are talking about different numbers. To try to find who this is, it would be a matter of investigate who isn’t playing $10/$20 anymore. Would this be like searching a needle in the farm?

This is Bloom playing on his brother account.....

But seriously:
at 12 Feb 2012 he won more than 47.000 $ for the first place in 215$ buy-in Tourney, so he is just properly using his "good run time".

This is some serious money to be won on these high stakes tables, I want to know what their bankroll really is, in the millions maybe. I am just guessing.

ok can it be blom- yes he can, the fact that isildur is shown amongst the main loosers of the week ,that doesn't prove a thing- he easily can play with multiple accounts, maybe he lost some on his main account, got pissed of by that, and turned on to the unknown account for increased chances

I often wonder how quickly these sort of gains are lost again. It is all very well reporting such huge winnings, but when it comes down to it, all that matters, is the bottom line (total career earnings/loss). Look at Isuldur $ 500k down this year...

On average everybody looses, except for the poker site, which collect the rake, no matter what. So for every winner, there is an even bigger loser (or lots of small ones)...

Who is loosing all that money, and can they afford it?

Really, who knows how big is their bankroll... Big Smile
I was watching isildur's bad session, he was loosing about $300k or a bit more, playing PLO heads up against same opponent 3 table action, and at some point he put his last $ on the table, he was on $20k top off option, and then there was some other number, so when he lost that, there was some 15 sit out pause, i guess he deposited half a million $ and the action continues Big Smile not a big deal... hahaha

This is such a complex discussion if all these pros play in bankroll or not but it's clear that they have at least 100 buy ins for this limits.

I was always wondering how these guyscan deposit/cashout so much money, i know there are some amount restrctions?

last week i was watching at oogee and v.blom ,like watching ville w ,but if u lost
over a half mil,like v blom lost then,see related news,that week he lost 867k and this time 180k,that's over a million,a MILLION,i think if u have money enough,can you talk about an big addiction?coz whatever u lose ,u wanna and you try to win it back,thats human i guess ,my opinion u can talk about a big,hughe addict problem,or do i see it wrong?

So Isilider 1 has got some competition. Well, there always over time comes another player that surpasses the previous, but we'll have to see how far he can really go. Is there really someone who can hang with and break the records that Blom has set? The champions never stay the same!
 MANUEDO25/02/2012 14:59:53 GMT
Stop talking about Isildur 1, please ! We will see next months ( or weeks ?)
how much money will he be able to earn
 Pjot26/02/2012 12:27:02 GMT
It's obviously Fejset that has made some sort of rocket playing DoNs, I can't see any other explanation. Swedish superpros don't grow on trees, you know.
