I think if he keeps up this pace he's gonna burn himself out. He's been playing monster sessions everyday, not giving himself a break. And the pros probably doing their best to push him to the limit.

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

Overheard at the nail salon

Mrs. Hellmuth: "So how's your boy doing these days?"

Mrs. Dwan: "Little Tommy's had a few business setbacks lately. He tells me a Swedish competitor, using questionable business practices is moving in on his territory."

Mrs. Hellmuth: "Oh, that's too bad! My son is always talking about Tommy's future." (Like how he would be surprised if he's even in business five years from now)

Mrs. Ilsidur1: "Tee hee"

Mrs. Dwan: "Did you say something dear?"

Mrs. Ilsidur1: "Oh, no. I just saw something funny in my People Magazine."

Mrs. Hellmuth: "You know, my son tells me he is the best in the world. I'm sure he could show this Swedish competitor a thing or two." (What kind of pansy did you raise? Letting some idiot Northern European get the best of him.)

Mrs. Ilsidur1: Gagging and spitting up her mocha latte

Mrs. Hellmuth: "Is there something wrong?."

Mrs. Ilsidur1: "No, I just had a little trouble with my latte." Gets up, hands the manicurist a couple of hundred, "Keep the change, it's my son's treat". Leaves.

Mrs. Hellmuth: "Who was that anyway?"

Manicurist: "No one has a clue, she's new in town."

Gondor has fallen?

Isildur1 high king of Gondor has succumb to the power of the ring games.

Seriously though, if I break down the events of the last few weeks I can come to no other conclusion then to suggest that the end of Isildur1 is only a question of time at this point. My reasoning's are as follows.

1. The mystery behind joining a new site leaves a highly positive ev gap for image to be created. This has now passed.

2. All of the other players know of or can find out about their opponents game, so their tendencies are known before making some retrospective negative ev calls like many of the players have done against Isildur1.

3. Isil is currently down since playing on FT.

4. Isil ran bad at 200/400 and not 500/1000 which would have made him significantly more in the red.

5. He plays Ivey (big mistake).

Obviously there is a ton of counter arguments so let av it.

This isn't true though, both highstakes db and ptr show he is up, somewhere between $500k and $1.5m.

Very Well played. I think this is thread worthy and you should probably make a series of these.

Just looking at his learning curve I would'nt bet against him in being a favorite over PA and Ivey in Omaha as well within a reasonable period of time.
I've wondered that. I get think the feeling that when he came onto FT his target was durrr and that he probably did quite a lot of study of his play. I think that he knows Ivey and pa are too much for him together at plo and he might be setting terms on multi-tabling that only pa can / will accept. If he can crack pa then there would only be Ivey left.

It would be interesting to see what FT did if there was no one that would give him action given their play with the best marketing spiel.
