Mystery Swedish Prodigy "Lindqvro" Now Playing At Full TiltFebruary 15, 2011 8:23 am
Ever since Viktor “Isildur1” Blom signed as a PokerStars sponsored pro, rival poker room Full Tilt has missed having a resident Swedish mystery player around tearing up the virtual felts on the site.
However, for a brief moment all that changed last Thursday after a mystery Swede by the screen name “Lindqvro” showed up on Full Tilt and proceeded to square off across four tables of $25/$50 PLO against Dan “Jungleman12” Cates.
Despite appearing like a bolt from the blue and with no apparent high stakes experience, “Lindqvro” then succeeded in relieving Jungleman12 of $300,000 of his bankroll over a three-hour session.
Jungleman12’s loss proved to be one of the worst sessions of recent times and as the US heads-up specialist got pummeled during the session, rail birds went into a frenzy analysing the mystery Swede’s style of play and speculating on his identity.
After noting his super-aggressive style and origin of location many speculators were inevitably convinced “Lindqvro” was in fact none other than Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, who would have had to change his screen name at Full Tilt in order not to breach his PokerStars contract.
Despite the similarities in style, forum posters noted some subtle differences between the two Swedish players including different bet sizing, table options, and expressions used in the chat box. In addition, Viktor “Isildur1” Blom even posted a response on the TwoPlusTwo forum himself stating the following:
“Hi, it’s not me that guy. I only play on PokerStars and I get every game I want there.”
However, his comment did sound more like an endorsement for PokerStars and was in line with a previous statement saying he now plays exclusively at his new home PokerStars.
In the meantime, as the speculation continues “Lindqvro” has vanished just as quickly as he appeared leaving only a new account on highstakesdb showing a $300,000 profit over a days play. Railbirds will also be eagerly awaiting the next time this mystery prodigy decides to put in a second appearance at Full Tilt.
