You americans love those conspiracy theories, don't you? Cheating players at their own site while playing HU? Stop it.

why does he not play against fullflush?
Any statements by fullflush to his domination?

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

Question:

Do you think FTP would stop Isildur1 from withdrawing his br if he tried to withdraw everything tomorrow? What would they say/do?

Re: **** November High Stakes Thread ****

Haha i mean come on he won from everyone at some eurosites now he is crushing everyone at FTP. The fact that he is raping Durrrr/Antonius at NLHE isnt very suprising to me, first off they dont play that much NL these days, so their games probably isnt as sharp as they once where. At PLO he probably is carried through by his poker savyness and agression, but at the same time running hot, since one can see that he is quite new to the game by some major misstakes he has done vs PA.

At the same time Isildur was (atleast if he is blom90) the most feared player at certain Euro cites, just look at the fullflush interview, he said durrrr and his girlfriends was gonna go broke if they didnt watch out when he switched site to FTP.

Furthermore it isnt the first time someone is having a great run, the most likely reason is that he is an awsome player and on top off that is doing something the "pro´s" cant handle. When townsend first came up his thing was betting the turn with marginal holdings, something that might seem very standard but no one realized what was going on. Then once he starded making CR videos ppl caught on and he went on a massive downswing.....

Now to all you ******s accusing him of cheating: ARE YOU ****ING STUPID?
I mean he is beating PA and Durrrr the first of which is a part owner of the site i mean for real do you think this is possible? Secondly how could a 19 year old kid from sweden pull of this alledged cheat and not only cheat at FTP but at every large Euro network? I mean COME ON!!! How stupid are you? Face facts he is:

1 running hot. 2 an AWSOME poker player. 3 his opponents are playing bad.

Please Stop. Its not even a laughable anymore...its just annoying.

Stu Ungar was a tilt monkey in cash games. He won those tournaments, because no one knew how to effectively combat his style THEN.

He was brilliant, but he'd get eaten alive in today's games by a majority of the big players....and thats only if he didn't wind up snorting his roll beforehand.

Anyone who doesn't find this fishy is either ******ed or unable to make intelligent observations. And if he's the greatest player in online history, why doesn't he want everyone to know who he is?

He has also pushed into the stone cold nuts and has called people who then hit runner-runner suckouts. He's not cheating and thinking that he is, is stupid.

The whole point of online poker, where you are known by your alias, is so that people don't know who you are.

Why would he want everyone to know who he is?

Re: **** November High Stakes Thread ****

All the cheating allegations are so dumb. I'm sure full tilt is all over it, and would shut his account down if they thought something shady was going on. These games have a ton of variance, and making 7 mil in 20K hands playing 500/1K HU will happen. If he were cheating, you really think he'd do it like this rather than quietly grinding out 5 pt/100 at 10/20?

Because whoopdee ****ing doo swedes pay 30% in taxes on their winnings from full tilt.

That just miiiiiiiiiiiiight be the reason as to why Erik Sagstrom hasn't officially declared that he is DIN_FRU although everyone knows it.

Oh that would be SO good. Imagine that. And then he never came out to the public to reveal his identity. One of the biggest pieces of poker history could literally happen in the next couple of days.

Well, depends on who that someone is...

Unknown player with a second account = ban
Known player with a second account = slap on the wrist

yet another person who thinks if ungar was still alive he wouldn't be any better than he was before he died. if he was able to be among the best with the knowledge people had of poker back then, he'd probably be one of the best now with the knowledge we have.
