Poker : Isildur is Back


2/12/10 – Followers of the high stakes poker action on the virtual nosebleed tables at Full Tilt Poker report the return of phenom Isildur1 – the player who risked millions in super-aggressive play that swung from win to lose and back to win….only to end up overall in the red for the Swedish mystery player.
 
Isildur has apparently been active on and off since the beginning of February, but there is little sign of the high stakes excitement he generated which drew thousands of virtual railbirds to Full Tilt when he was at his peak and millions were crossing the tables.
 
Reports suggest that this time around he has played thousands of low bet hands, grinding up to postive balances in the thousands of dollars only to blow the proceeds in mid-range action in his aggressive and daring style of play.
 
So far, it has apparently not worked for the Swede, who is reportedly down overall in earnings by some $150 000 or more.
 
The independent statistics site MarketPulse lists this week's big winners and losers on the nosebleeds as follows:
 
Winners: Cole South (+$92 000), Alexander Kostritsyn (+$835 000), PixKim (+$423 000), Patrik Antonius (+$359 000), Tom Dwan (+$347 000)
 
Losers: Ilari Sahamies (-$762 000), Brian Townsend (-$627 000), John Hennigan (-$501 000), David Oppenheim (-$263 000), DrPill (-$243 000)
