Re: *** The Official Isildur1 Thread ***

Isildur has a lot of heart, thats for sure. He is sitting and waiting at a bunch of tables right now even after last nights bloodbath. Isildur just doesn't seem phased after getting raped for millions within hours.

Isildur is no doubt the epitome of one word... degenerate.

Explain how he is a degenerate?

He is playing poker. Every single one of us has had swings like this. He has only dipped in to his actual starting bankroll for like 3 buy ins, what he lost was all profit from the romp he went on for a week or so. High stakes grinder? lol If this guy made his money playing poker, I assume he has ridiculously sound bankroll management. Also, it's not about the millions of dollars, it's about buy ins and number of BBs.

You are right. But it's just easier to call some of those highstakes players degens the way they spew all those millions. Like Gus for example.

Re: *** The Official Isildur1 Thread ***

well, I for one have had swings like him you stupid ****s(buyin wise for smartasses) and he plays higher variance opponents, it's just that he pushes more hands than i do in a month in 2 sittings so obv these swings will occurr.

Compare it as much as you want, but there have NEVER been action like this before on 500/1k, this many hands in such short time ever, especially between two specific persons like durrrr&isildur.

I mean, before Isildur entered the scene most of the nosebleeders didnt even have 50k hands this year on 500/1k. He dished out 90k in a week, just do a 2009-01-01 search on highstakesdb and check for yourself. It's less players on the top 30 winners and top 30 losers that is over 50k hands than below, 8 players in top 30 winners have played over 50k hands, and 6 in losers.

Put in the fact that isildur is one of them, and he have been boosting lots of players total hands this year, AND THEN WITHDRAW all the hands they have played at stakes below 500/1k and you get....ya not so many hands played at 500/1k.

Isildur is kinda like Robin Hood but his morals are reversed. Stealing from the poor (durrrr), and giving to the rich (PA, Ivey).

He won 100k. AND became a legend in the process
More like a cautionary tale. I can see an entire generation of old poker farts gathering their grandchildren around to horrify them with the "Tale of Isildur...."

Makes me suspicious that the Isildur account is being played by a young and upcoming player - You'd have to be pretty dense to risk 5 million if it was all the $$ you had. I can see certain scenarios:

1) Trust fund brat who is set for life and just doesn't give a f*ck
2) Someone of Darvin "waterbuffalo" Moon'esqe intelligence who is on the mother of all heaters and really doesn't understand how fortunate he is - (probability next 2 zero given the level of play overall)
3) A young gun with waaaaaay more balls than brains who is unbalance mentally and *really* thought he was chosen by God, or Thor or Odin to subjugate the entire poker world in a month

Hardly exhaustive, but I'm loathe to understand how a guy with enough smarts to roll roll a smallish (read < 2 million) stake up and take a shot at the high stakes games, and then manages to make some serious casheesh, lacks the intelligence to tuck at least 1/2 away for that rainy day we call "life".

So I have to wonder. What makes more sense is that Isildur is either an established player with a MUCH bigger bankroll than has thus far been assumed - or - take your pick of conspiracy theories - a team of Swedish programmers a la Linus Torvalds who got some financial backing to test Omaha software developed along the lines of the University of Alberta holdem project - a team of players working together - whatever. I don't give much weight to any ideas like this - but it's fun to speculate.

My guess is a swede who's been killing the Euro games, loaded a good chunk of his bankroll on FTP and decided to give the biggest online games a shot - he started absolutely killing the games and made that most egregious of errors - became a legend in his *own* mind and overplayed his hand and bankroll - He wouldn't be the first. Kaibuxxe, ICallSowhat, and hell, Gustav and other more established players come to mind... Nobody is immune. If you're going to play 500/1000, no less a player than Galfond has said you should have 20,000,000 and then be prepared to lose it. All.

Ergo - Cautionary tale. Too bad - I'd have loved to see him (if he is an up and coming young Swede as advertised) tuck some away and stick around to entertain us for years to come.
