Isildur1 Returns To Full Tilt In Spectacular Fashion

Isildur1 Returns To Full Tilt In Spectacular FashionIsildur1 created quite a frenzy of excitement on Full Tilt Poker in 2009, as he proceeded to take on the best players in the world at nose bleed stakes of up to $500/$1,000. However, his meteoric rise to fame and then equally spectacular fall from grace at the hands of Brian Hastings, had the poker community wondering when and if they would see the mystery Swede back at the high stakes tables once more.
After disappearing from the radar a while and then playing some lower buy-in games, Isildur1 has returned to Full Tilt Poker’s high stakes scene once more this February.
It is difficult to tell just how much of a bankroll Isildur1 has managed to acquire or build up since going busto, but from the 3rd to 8th February he weathered dropping $147,079 over 16,000 hands. Following a five days break, Isildur1 then hit the $50/$100 No-Limit Hold’em, and lost another $30k over 1,011 hands.
Isildur1 must have felt the signs were favourable all the same and he has been playing $100/$200 and $200/$400 stakes ever since, clocking up $237,122 in profits from players such as URnotINDanger2, Di “Urindanger” Dang and Andrew “PostflopAction” Kostritsyn.
Last night, however, marked a major return to form for the Swedish online poker pro as he managed to win an impressive $567k from the American Justin “ZeeJustin” Bonomo heads-up after 1,944 hands at $200/$400 NLHE.
The largest pot of the session reached $170,000, as Bonomo with Qh 6h raised to $1,200 only to be re-raised to $4,800 by Isildur1 holding KK. The action was guaranteed after the flop fell K-Q-6  and Isildur1’s $6,400 bet was re-raised to $15,600, which he simply called. An 8 on the turn saw all the money going into the pot with the Swede check-raising Bonomo’s $20,000 bet for a $71,000 all-in push, which he called. A Jack on the river changed nothing and the $170,000 was shipped Isildur1’s way.
Isildur1’s now seems to have gotten into his stride once more, and with $806,685 in profits over the last three days, could this herald the triumphant return of every one’s favourite high stakes mystery man?
