He may not have had quite the impact of Isildur1 on the poker world but fellow Swede Joel Nordqvist aka Odonkor1 has certainly caused a stir in the high stakes online games. The young Swede's profile is set to get even higher with the news that he has joined Antonio Esfandiari's stable of professionals at Team Victory.

Odonkor1 burst onto the scene in 2008 but came to most people's attention last month with some massive wins in the nose bleed online cash games. His biggest week saw him pocket more than $850,000 in a single week against some of the biggest names around.

"I'm truly excited to sign such an online superstar and look forward to his performance at this year’s WSOP,” stated CEO Dan Fleyshman. “We’ll also be keeping an eye on him in nosebleed high-stakes games online."

One lucky recreational player will also be joining Odonkor1 in the Victory Poker Team courtesy of the site's $100,000 video contest. Simply submit a short video clip explaining why you think you deserve to become a pro and you could win a package that includes a car, clothes, a luxury condo on the Las Vegas Strip not to mention $100,000 in tournament buy ins.
