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

This is a serious issue and should be complained about by all of us b/c it can easily it lead down a slippery slope. Their greed...i mean actions are reprehensible and something has to be done.

The fact that stinger bragged about winning a few mil when:

1.) ran over 3 mil EV
2.) colluded

pisses me off and then he yaps about all of his hard work paying off rofl. I wish my hard work paid off enough for me to lucksack 3 mill. Simply not fair and no one should be supporting him, CTS, or Sbrugby who we all know has committed some shady actions in the past. This is the second time (wakeup ppl). what db did he get Isidurs past hands from? Its very well possible he purchased them on PTR.

I dont see how Isidur isnt outraged by this.

I mean millions and millions of dollars here, on a blatant violation of a rule that was specifically intended to target this kind of behavior, ie ganging up on a player. People share hand histories all the time, if your dumb enough to get caught, especially in this type of red-handed fashion, you deserve the consequences of your actions, and I really believe at least some of the money should be forfeited or frozen until a final agreement or resolution is met. Antonius played Isildur fair and square, so did Ziggy to the best of our knowledge so did Ivey and Durrrr, so why should the Cardrunners guys be exempt?

Its not like they even just went over hands, according to that interview, there was an indepth analysis and strategy to take him out. Thats not kosher.
Couldn't have said it any better. I really hope something is done to these guys. Full Tilt needs to send a message to all of its players that everyone will be held accountable for their actions from the high stakes players to the micro players. Rules are rules and they should be enforced like so.

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

im not isildurs fanboy or anything, but i have to admit that this been exciting time when isildur was around and all i can say about what CR did is that they are like 3 rats.

rats that were too scared to take on they own on isildur and that's why formed a team, a team that shared hh's to find isildurs leaks and create edge which they obv didn't have without forming this gang.

i wouldn't be surprised if BT dumped some funds on purpose [bait] before that epic session when BH cleared out isildur.

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

it seems clear that the CR guys violated the terms of service, but where do you think the line should be drawn? would it have been okay for the 3 of them to run an analysis on only the hands cole played? what about each of them doing independent analyses of the hands they individually played against isildur and then convening and discussing their findings?

If 'isildur1' revealed himself would he be endorsed by Full tilt?

If he were to reveal himself maybe he could discuss a lucrative deal with full tilt? just a thought

Then he could film an awesome commercial where he is playing Brian Hastings heads up with Cole South and Brian Townsend standing behind Hastings.

Isildur1 is the most overated plo player ever

Without a question Isildur1 is easily the best NL player in the world. Way above Durrrr and PA. The pros didn't say this but im pretty sure they think Isildur1 is a weak PLO player. ziigmund, PA, durrrr, team card runners know this and they were always waiting at the tables for him. In the middle of a NL game PA and durrrr would always try to get Isildur1 at the PLO tables. Don't get me wrong. I always rooted for him at the tables and really hope he doesn't go bust though I feel this will happen eventually. I would prefer him playing the pros at the NL tables. I'm sure he would bust each and everyone of them. However, he is just an above average player in PLO. Railed him many times to be able to say this.

A hand where he could just check and call vs PA where he probably had a full house but he check raise PA on the river and PA raises back pot. He folds. Its clear PA got a higher full house. And Isildur1 should never took the risk of raising back on a dangerous river. Even if he was bluff raising, its still a dangerous river to do that.

He said in the interview he had never read any poker books before and I totally believe him because if he had read a few PLO books and get the fundamentals right. He can be on par with the pros and maybe even better than them.


I hope he will make a fast comeback and stop playing plo with the pros until he figured out this game (like how Gus Hansen did). The pros also know he is an extremely good NL player which explains why after a few sessions with him, no one really dare to sit with him at the NL 500/1000 tables. Not even durrrr!

I don't think there is a single person who sees him as a PLO beast.
