As a poker player you’d pretty much have to have been living under a rock not to have heard the whispers of anticipation over Isildur1 escalate into a montage of jubilant cries, excited exclamations and gut wrenching groans as Full Tilt Poker railbirds across the globe lie privvy to this online phenom’s rollercoaster ride of urban legend heaters and soul crushing beats. 

Up $5 million one day, busto the next, it seems Isildur1 is well and truly back in the saddle and is set on either leaving those who face him on the felt broken and littered behind him as he cuts a swarthe through his opponents…or making them hundreds of thousands better off.  The decision isn’t yet out on which way Isildur1′s variance will run in this second round of explosive online action.

Up $690k in his most recent session thanks to a $550k donation from Justin ‘ZeeJustin’ Bonomo (after a 120k downswong courtesy of Isaac ‘luvtheWNBA’ Haxton), we wait with baited breath to see who will be the next victim or hero in a nosebleed stakes story which is rapidly assuming epic proportions.

It seems its not just the fact that millions of dollars are exchanging hands.  We’ve all watched the likes of Durrrr, Antonius, Ivey and Gus exchange bankroll body blows at these stakes before.  Its the speed and wanton degeneracy with which Isildur seems intent on bringing about massive swings that has fans and critics glued to their monitors. 

That and the fact that Isildur1 seems almost fatalistically fearless on the felt (deliberate use of the letter ‘f’ ftw).

As at the time of writing, Isildur1 is catching some much needed Zzzz’s and the high stakes tables are silent on Tilt… but we’re waiting to see just how effectively he’ll weild what must now be close to a 1M roll on his return.
