For almost a decade Isildur (the guy to cut-off Sauron's finger) was known as the character from the Lord of the Rings movies. However, it all changed when last year a dude with a nickname Isildur1 appeared on Full Tilt and kicked durrrr's ass in the nose-bleed high-stakes games. He then went on winning and losing millions making him an online poker sensation of the time and getting everyone talking about it. The whole deal became even more exiting because of the fact that Isildur kept his identity a secret.

Because of the same reason people on the internet started getting suspicious and wondering if all of this was just a trick to draw everyone's attention to Full Tilt. TonyG then decided to enter the scene and announced that Isildur has accepted his invitation to play at the PartyPoker's Big Game IV and that's where his true identity was to be revealed. However, the swede (oh, btw, Isildur's Swedish) pulled out on the last minute therefore remaining a mystery.

Until now, because PokerStars have announced they've signed a sponsorship deal with Isildur1 which means he will become a team PokerStars member and will represent the site in live poker events. This comes rather unexpected not only because of the fact that everyone will finally find out who Isildur really is (although everyone already knows it's Viktor Blom), but that he signed with PokerStars rather than Full Tilt which was the place where he became a someone.

And here's what Isildur had to say about joining PokerStars: “I chose to join PokerStars because it's the biggest site and it will be an exciting challenge. It means a great deal to be playing in a team alongside players such as Daniel Negreanu, Dario Minieri, and Johnny Lodden. My goals now are to improve my live game for some upcoming events, continue to focus on heads-up no-limit Hold’em, but also try to develop my pot-limit Omaha game.”

The PokerStars flagman Daniel Negreanu had this to say: “It’s not every day that a player like Isildur1 comes along. If you look up the definition of the term ‘phenom’ you'll see a picture of his face! When he is playing, the poker world takes notice. Hate to overuse the poker term ‘sick’ but Isildur’s no-limit Hold'em game is just that – sick! Few people step up to the plate against him, but the ones who have, universally have respect for his raw talent.”

So from now on Isildur will be playing online poker on PokerStars. Join him in the action – download PokerStars and start your own poker carrier.
