Isildur1 set for sponsorship deal?

Isildur1 set for sponsorship deal?

Saturday, 16 October 2010

It's almost a year since Isildur1 created such a sensation on the high stakes cash tables at Full Tilt. With huge pots and seven figure swings his crazy clashes with the likes of Tom Dwan became the stuff of legend. After slipping of the radar for a time, poker's most enigmatic figure could be hitting the headlines again if a Swedish newspaper report is to be believed.

According to Sohello "Bank the Man" Shah, blogger for Swedish paper Expressen, Isildur1 has signed a sponsorship deal with a major poker site and will be revealing his true identity in the near future.

Our Swedish isn't up to much but revealed that Shah wrote, "A famous Swedish high stakes player, according to my sources, has now made a sponsorship deal with a well known poker site. This news is not official yet, so unfortunately I can not go out with his name or nickname.

“But the person is 20 years old, and during late 2009 and throughout 2010 he came poker’s biggest hot topic. Many have said, that he is the world’s best HU player and that will soon take Ivey’s place”.

Isildur1 has made the odd appearance at the Full Tilt tables over the past few weeks with limited amounts of success. We'll be hoping for more bankroll defying action from the Swede should this sponsorship deal be confirmed.
