Isildur1 to Reveal Himself Today

January 8, 2011

Could it really be? According to various sources, the world will soon know the true identity of Isildur1, recently signed anonymous PokerStars Team Pro and online poker player. Supposedly, before the day is over, the unidentified poker player will reveal himself to the poker community at the commencement of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) Main Event which will take place at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. A press conference has been scheduled for 7:00 p.m. Bahamas time.

For almost a year now, many have believed that the mysterious, unnamed Swedish character is in fact Viktor Blom, a very successful cash game player who is very well respected in the European poker circuit. Online, Isildur1 is known for the dramatic swings that involve bets worth millions of dollars. Not known in the live circuit for having high stacks of cash, attention was raised when Blom became one of 38 players competing in the $100K High Roller Event at the PCA. Once the news of Isildur1’s supposed appearance started buzzing around at the PCA, people started to make a connection.

Over the past year, Isildur1 has held his own against some of the biggest and boldest high-stakes online poker players to ever play the game. Isildur1 has swapped huge pots with such players as Patrik Antonius, Tom durrrr Dwan, Gus Hansen, and Phil Ivey at the high-stakes tables over at Full Tilt Poker before he signed with PokerStars.

And as if there wasn’t enough hype surrounding the PCA this year, Tony G has expressed interest in taking on Isildur1 for a rematch after losing against him at the SuperStar Showdown, a series created by PokerStars specifically designed for those who wished to try their hand against the anonymous player. Tony G just might get that chance at the PCA.
