Re: **** March High Stakes Thread ****

Just wondering now team OMG/durrrr cleaned out islidurr will they get the same hatered as team cardrunners?

Both teams staked each other (as claimed by the dangs) and there is a good chance they shared HH. I say good chance cause theres no evidance and they arent stupid enough to come out about it after the cardrunner debarcle

I can imagine Phil and tom playing against isildur, nonchalantly pushing buttons while getting a massage and winning millions. That's gotta feel good.

Difference is I don't think they'd be stupid enough to admit it if they did it and they would have kept it shut even if the CR stuff didn't happen.

No. Jesus, I was posting results every 10 min during the Isildur sessions, just check back. PLO 300/600 vs Galfond ended with Isildur a slight winner.

Re: **** March High Stakes Thread ****

it does not really matter what happened last night, isil is capable of buiding up any deposit into millions, when he plays plo for few more months and learns everyones tendencies he will be destroying them the same way he had to zee, cole, and hastings last few times, i dont think he had played galfond on plo before for a lot of hands to get a clear idea of his game

yes, I'm sure none of the highstakes regs will adjust to his play over a few more months... this also boldly assumes that we will get to see him play again at all

Re: **** March High Stakes Thread ****

Also assumes he's going to get plenty of people giving him action. I see no more than a handful of people that are realistically going to play him at those stakes any time soon.

He will be back to play more today, 100%. My guess is within 2-4 hours.

Have we seen anything other than pure aggression from Isil? For whatever reason I see him as a person that is good at imposing their style on others, but is too stubborn to adjust once they figure it out.

He has to stop playing 20 hour sessions!

Think of Muhammed Ali at his peak. Yes he was the best heavyweight boxer in the world, but if he fought 5 opponents in a row then eventually he would get tired and one of his opponents, though inferior from a clean and equally rested start, would take advantage of his fatigue and beat him!

....and will then degen it all back. Standard, but highly entertaining, the HS world needs more ISI!

They did start out playing NLH I believe - Isil complained that Phil had promised him a session long ago. Not sure however when/why they changed to PLO, and why Isil agreed to do so. Seems he's determined to solve PLO at the highest level without perhaps cutting his teeth down lower for starters. Results speak for themselves...not good.

So what you mean is: 'I admit I have absolutely no idea whether they did this and no reason to think they would. BUT IT PROBABLY HAPPENED'
