Also just wondering how you pronounce Isildur, what syllable is stressed?

Well by your logic, my African American friends should have a problem with the word, "owned."

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

I can't believe so many people don't see how the word rape could be offensive. It really doesn't bother me but I can't deny that it could be disturbing for some to hear it.
For those of you that don't think is offensive ask yourselves one question. If someone close to you had ever been raped, would you feel the same way??

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

Isildur1 is Viktor "blom90" Blom

Postby UtiltIbuild » Tue Nov 24, 2009 6:35 pm
Viktor Blom is a 20 year old poker pro from Rånäs, Stockholms län, Sweden. Viktor started playing poker under the screen name of blom90 on the Ipoker network and Party Poker. I believe he played under Blom90 on Party and also blom90_fan. Viktor Blom is alleged to have deposited $2000.00 on Ipoker and ran it up to $1.5 million in 2 weeks with his hyper aggressive style. He was 18 when he first did this and is now around 20 years old. Viktor Blom was nominated in the Scandinavian Poker Awards for rookie of the year in 2008. Viktor started his run on the Ipoker network and has since migrated to Full Tilt Poker to take on the best in the world. Like a poker prophet, Lukas Schwartz aka _fullflush1_ foretold about Viktor’s coming to Full Tilt, like was predicting the second coming of the Anti-durrrr. Sure enough, Viktor came to Full Till Poker to play with the pros. He not only played with the pros, but started an epic poker match in an attempt to reign supreme over the Full Tilt team members who play the highest stakes. He signed up under the name of Isildur1. He started by taking about $3 million off of Tom Dwan aka Durrrr. After that, Patrik Antonius took on isuldur1 and won the largest pot in online history off of him and about 2.5 million. Viktor wasn’t discouraged at all, the next evening he not only played Tom Dwan and Patrik Antonus, but added Phil Ivey to the mix, playing all of them on a total of 8 screens at once! Phil Ivey took over a million off of isildur1 in a couple of hours. Patrik and Durrrr both lost money off of him but were gaining ground back. Viktor is relentless, hyper aggressive, and capable of making 15k calls with K high on scary boards. Viktor is playing millions of hands, and is sure to become a dominating force in poker. Viktor Blom aka isildur1 is sure to get signed by a major poker room over the next couple of months.

If you do not accommodate the "fish" with bait they wont bite. Eventually Isildur will stop playing and subsequently PA will lose a supposed fishing hole. Short-term thinking on PA's part and yours quite honestly.

If your going to play poker at nosebleeds for and extended period of years this idea of denying action is out right dumb. But what do I know winning three million dollars this year maybe better than winning 10 million over five years. If I was rolled and planned to play for years I would most def try and keep my customers happy. Patrik's prime customer is going to start shopping at other places for action.

Kind of funny PA thinks he has no edge ever against anyone. DN mentioned this about golf and you hear on the poker shows how PA complains how bad he runs.

Isildur1 is NOT a fish, and PA has no need to bait him, since time and time again, Isildur1 continues to sit down with him. Unless he can muster up the self control to hold out and not sit at a PLO table, Isildur1 won't be playing a hand of NLHE with Antonius anytime soon.

Ehh nope. The name is from LOTR. Before LOTR there was no Isildur, it is not a Swedish name. It should be pronounced the way it is in the movie.

Here's another link where you can hear it pronounced:
