According to several sites, Isildur1 is up over $6,000,000 this month alone playing the high stakes cash games on Full Tilt Poker. By the first week of November, Isildur1 was up $1 million according to Poker Table Ratings and crossed the $2 million threshold shortly thereafter. On November 15th, 2009, Isildur1 had raked in more than $5 million from his opponents. Most of his success had come at the expense of Dwan.

Isildur1's True Identity

The controversy goes rant and rave on in the online poker community as to the true identity of Isildur1. Isildur1's peculiarity never be known due to complicated tax laws in the Scandinavian nation, but early speculation that Isuldur1 is Robert "Gulkines" Flink.

Moreover, another speculation burst out as Frank "Frank1The1Tank" Calo posted about Isildir1's identity; "Fwiw, I have received intelligence by some very credible sources (who shall be kept completely private) who said pretty confidently who isildur1 is. So I give you the knowledge I have (with like 99% certainty but not quite 100% yet) that it is Robert Flink aka Gulkines. No this is not a level or me having fun or w/e. I can say with like 100% certainty that it isn't viktor blom either fwiw."

Another speculation is when the poker bad boy Tony G reveal that a Swedish poker pro named Viktor “blom30” Blom is Isildur1. Viktor Blom has denied being the high-stakes newcomer, telling Bluff Europe, “I am not the one you are looking for. Keep searching.”

However, a conversation at the playing table between Isildur1 and Illari "Ziigmund" Sahamies, that was published on the 30th of November at the poker forum seems to strengthen the idea that Isildur1 is Viktor Blom:
