Exactly. 12 or so hours in he was up 1mil, but isi is on drugs and just can' quit...

Oh to be back here again Isil hey. You degen. Even when he was getting beat pretty hard last night he had like $500K left. Why not start fresh and to run it up or bust the rest the next day. This kid is ****ing insane, all or nothing for him.

i just hope for isi's sake that he gets some sort of sponsorship deal out of this.
Maybe Isildur is a lot like Thomas Edison, he failed about 5,000 times trying to invent the light bulb. A reporter asked him if he was ready to give up and he answered, "I haven't failed 5,000 times, I'm 5,000 steps closer to what's really going to work."

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

Why do everyone think the action is off? Isildur will be back today, 2-3 hours tops. And hopefully win that $1.6M+ back. Sure he is somewhat crippled and cant take another beating like that, but its far from over yet.

We have recently seen he have founds outside FT, and can reload hundreds of k in 5-10 minutes. Even HSDB states hes still up $1.6M on the year (almost all from march). The only thing to stop him from returning today is

1. Backer cashed out and is done after the crazy galfond battle
2. He cashed out big to settle himself in case of bust.

I don`t see how a backer could allow him to play galfond like that though, so I would be VERY surprised if he has a backer at all.

We have seen several times now how good he is building a big roll, once up big he starts to get too reckless and more tilty because he plays higher and lose bigger bucks when running bad.

Every time he bust he get just a little smarter, eventually he will be smart enough to stay up. Maybe not today, maybe not this month, not even this year, but he will get there. In Isildur we trust

If anybody was going to bust isildur1 I'm glad it was Jman, he seems super deserving of a mega payday like this.

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

The only negative thing with Galfond winning the money is that it won't be used to generate action. More likely to used to get him a merry-go-round for his apartment.

No, I hear Isildur has at least $150 if he needs to release a little stress that way.

I'd love to see a graph of Isildur's winnings with any play past the 20-hours-no-sleep mark left out.
