ftp->moneybookers
tax free sites->moneybookers
moneybookers->bank account

if government asks, just tell them all the money is from tax free sites.

1 running hot. 2 an AWSOME poker player. 3 his opponents are playing bad.
I agree but the reason a lot of people cant and wont accept this is because:

1) Truth like this is boring compared to an elaborate conspiracy.

2) A lot of these people posting "cheating posts" and the like are people that have also started threads such as "Online poker is rigged", all be it they have probably opened new 2+2 accounts now having been flamed from their old ones. They are hoping so much that Isildur1 is a super-user/cheat so they can justify their pathetic poker careers by saying "I didn't stand a chance, it was all rigged against me!"

You just have to eventually give up on most people here and just have a lengthy ignore list. Sure everyone can post a view etc on the old interwebs but we don't have to listen to them.

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?
what i really want to know is why do so many people want to know who he is? am i the only person who could care less?

You don't think the government officials would be inclined to demand some deposit cashout-histories?

Great post! I use his success as inspiration both for poker and life. Why do these ppl blame their failure at life and poker on other ppls success?

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

Years back i remember one of the well known poker figures state, that they dont like to play for huge sums on the internet against unknowns, because you never know.

Well - now there is an unknown guy who just cleared 6 mio within 13 days - how can you not be super suspicous about that?

You really think that FTPs system is bullet proof against criminal intentions esp. with so much money on the line?

I really hope FTP is investigating and not releasing any of the money before they can rule out foul play 100%. If they dont, they are just acting recklessly and ignorant - and from what i´ve seen happening in the past few days, i would NEVER play high stakes on that site.

And everybody who keeps playing Isildur1 in this environment is just as ignorant and deserves to lose his money.

But playing Ivey, Lederer and Ferguson on FT would be ok, you mean?

Basically, He isnt. lol. But isnt the swedish tax law totally stupid? Like its 30% on every pot won? I guess it just means if he loses it all and didnt withdraw THEN the taxman wont find out.

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

I am hesitant to make this post becuase its so LOL noobish, and im sure its been made before...

He has a hot or not score of 100,everyone he's played against and made bank has a 0 or close to it.
he has never lost more than a buyin or so to anyone
has made millions in a few days
has a botscore of 53
his tilt score is 52 i suppose that could make him seem normal
completely off the radar..

cheater or heater IMO

this is my best private eye impersonation, flame away

This is correct. It never happens in reality though, you just need to pay 30% taxes on what you withdraw.
