A while ago, Tony G offered to stake the mysterious swede Isildur1 in Party Poker Big game IV in London. However, not many believed that Isildur1 would accept the offer -- even though he didn't have to reveal his identity. Now, Tony G writes in his latest blog post that Isildur1 has accepted his offer and that he's even thinking of playing without a mask. 

"I have some brilliant news. Isildur1 has accepted my offer to play in the Big Game IV in London. I spoke to him this morning and he has confirmed he will accept my offer to fully stake him for the event. I am delighted but I am going to crush him!
The question you all want the answer too is will he reveal his identity? This is what I am discussing with him at the moment, he is seriously thinking about just revealing himself to the world but the mask offer still stands! I will update you on this soon.";
