Mystery Swede is back on the Full Tilt
nosebleeds in a big way
After several desultory appearances since the beginning
of this (February) month (see previous InfoPowa reports)
the high risk, exciting player Isildur1 was back to
winning large amounts this week on the Full Tilt high
stakes online poker tables.
Despite taking a few
knocks earlier in the month after grinding up his
bankroll and then unsuccessfully going after high stakes
gaming victories, Isildur has maintained his action.
This week he moved to the $100/$200 NLHE and $200/$400
PLO tables and mixed it up with some of the Internet's
Notable victories have included
winning $327 000 from players like URnotINDanger2, Di "Urindanger"
Dang and Andrew Kostritsyn. Then came a setback against
Isaac Haxton that depleted Isildur1's bankroll by $90
000, leaving him with almost $250 000. With
characteristic boldness, the Swede put it all on the
line in an exciting heads up exchange on the $200/$400
NLHE tables against Justin Bonomo.
across up to seven tables at a time, the duo went at it
for almost 2 000 hands before Bonomo had to retreat due
to one of his backers withdrawing, leaving Isildur1 a
cool $567 000 in profit.
Bonomo played against
others following his departure from the Isildur1 action,
and by doing this he managed to recoup some of his
losses. Later, a bruised Bonomo admitted the loss was
the biggest of his career, writing on his Twitter page
that he intends on setting up a rematch in the near
future. “Played Isildur1 yesterday. Was my biggest poker
loss ever. I'm still up money overall for February. I
will play him again.” The big win brings Isildur1's
bankroll up to over $800 000, feeding speculation that
nosebleed fans may be in for another exciting round of
matches featuring this audacious player and his
remarkable swings in fortune.
