Isildur1 Debuts, Wins Quarter Million at PokerStars

by Omar

Well, that sure didn’t take long. Just days ago Isildur1 successfully single-handedly altered the landscape of the high-stakes online poker world with his decision to join the world’s leading online poker site, PokerStars. Well, last night he made his debut at the tables and those looking for fireworks were certainly not disappointed as he made it be known that he would not back down from anyone and he is not at all afraid of mixing it up.

The Swedish-pro, rumored to be Viktor Blom, took on a who’s who of the world’s top players including Ashton “theASHMAN103” Griffin, Scott “urnotindangr” Palmer, Brian “$tinger 88” Hastings. This lineup reminded many of the games over at Full Tilt that the site made famous. Isildur1 played for 14 straight hours of $25/$50 No Limit Hold em and when the dust had settled, he was up over $287K, a stellar debut for PokerStars’ shiny new toy.

Scores of players railbirded the tables and there was such a buzz in the air, it could almost be heard seeping from the keyboards. If day 1 of the Isildur1 bonanza is any indication, PokerStars is going to be generating quite a bit of buzz in the weeks and months to come.
