Isildur1 continue to reap havoc at the high-stakes tables
Seemingly unsatisfied with taking just a few million dollars off durrrr at the high-stakes tables on Full Tilt, the mystery Swede has continued his winning streak, adding another million or so to his bankroll to take his weekly tally to just over $4 million in the black!!
Although most of it has come courtesy of Full Tilt’s newest Team Pro, Isildur1 also took Patrik Antonius, Cole South and Brian Townsend for a spin, recording profits against each of them.

Greg Sessler wins ladies-only poker tournament
No, he is not a tranny nor is he a Jamie Lee Curtis reverse. He is simply a man who has won a ladies-only WSOP Circuit event, sparking controversy and ambiguity over the rules of these so-called ‘ladies-only’ poker tournaments.
Greg Sessler’s choice to enter the event, he claims, was ‘nothing to do with trying to take advantage of the ladies or thinking it was a softer field’, ( Oh no Greg, sure it wasn’t) but was because he only had one day, and really liked the structures and the payout. “This was the only tournament I could play” he claimed.
He picked up $9,932 for his sly efforts. Three other men reportedly entered the tournament and were each cheered out the room (by the ladies) when they busted. But there was no fourth cheer as Sessler went on to win when his pocket queens (appropriately) beat his opponent’s Q6 heads-up.
