Isildur1 To Seek Full Tilt Poker Compensation

Throughout October and November, Isildur1 brought a level of excitement and interest to Full Tilt’s high stakes tables hitherto unseen. His aggressive and bold style of play had railbirds cheering him on by the thousands and brought a ton of good publicity and traffic to the world’s second biggest poker site.
Isildur1’s bankroll experienced a wild roller coaster ride during this time, and he even hit a massive $6 million upswing before things started to go wrong for the mystery Swede. But the worst was yet to come, and he ended up losing around $4 million to CardRunners’ Brian Hastings over the course of a single day’s play, which effectively wiped out his entire Full Tilt bankroll.
Soon after, the controvery started when Hastings posted extra credit for his win with fellow Cardrunner Townsend, and commented: “Honestly, I give most of the credit to Brian Townsend here..He analyzed a database of heads-up hands that Isildur1 had played and constructed ranges of what Isildur1 was doing in certain spots. The three of us discussed a ton of hands and the reports that Brian made, so I’m very thankful to him and to Cole [South] as well.”
Now with this revelation and Brian Townsend’s subsequent ban from Full Tilt, Isildur1 has spoken to concerning the incident. Most interesting was the mystery Swede’s feeling that something was amiss, as he describes in this extract:
“I played with Brian Townsend and Cole South a lot. They were always waiting for me. The last session where Hastings won all the money, it just felt like something was wrong. Everything that could go wrong for me did. Every time I tried to pull off a bluff of some kind, it felt as if it was being picked off. At the time, I just thought it was crazy luck, but now, knowing they shared a lot of their analysis of hand histories with each other, it makes a lot more sense. I feel like Hastings, and even South and Townsend when we played the last few times, had an advantage over me.”
Following the Full Tilt inquiry and Townsend’s suspension, Isildur1 has now fully grasped why Full Tilt poker has such rules concerning sharing of information in place. He has also signalled he will be pursuing some or all of the money lost and said:
“I think I am going to put through a formal complaint.. I do feel like I deserve to get something back. I feel that Hastings had a big edge over me due to the hand history database. They were able to dissect the exact way I was playing because they analyzed the hands so precisely, and it was impossible for me to adjust, as I had no idea they were doing it.”
The ball seems to be firmly back in Full Tilt’s court once more, and we will try to bring you up to date information concerning this latest development as it occurs.
