Isildur1 Offered Free Ride At Upcoming PartyPoker Big Game IVMarch 25, 2010 10:46 am
The PartyPoker Big Game has always added a buzz of excitement to the poker calendar, as fans look forward to watching the eight player 48-hour high stakes cash game, where every two hours a player is voted off by his peers to be replaced by a new face.
As a PartyPoker spokesman explains: “The Big Game is always one of the most popular dates in the calendar and the added twist of a player being evicted every two hours will definitely spice up the action. If you are a rock, you could find yourself as the weakest link.”
The PartyPoker Big Game IV is due to take place between April 11th and 13th at Les Ambassadeurs club in Mayfair, and will feature some of the top pros from the poker world, including Luke “FullFlush” Schwartz, Phil Laak, Tony G, Issac Haxton, Neil Channing, Jennifer Tilly and Laurence Grondin, with more big names expected to follow.
However, to add to the mounting excitement Tony G has invited legendary mystery online player Isildur1 to join the party and has even offered to pay for his flights, hotel, stake in the cash game and allow him to wear a mask to conceal his secret identity. As Tony G explains:
“I want to experience the chance to see your brilliant online game in the live environment..[however] If I stake you I still want to crush you and make you bleed from the mask…and I will!”
Despite Matchroom Sport managing director Eddie Hearn revealing that, “we have been in contact with Isildur1 and would love him to join the game,” so far there has been no confirmation by Isildur1 in response to the hard to resist offer.
One thing is for sure though, and that is the incredible draw securing an appearance by Isildur1 would have on the popular televised event. Is the mystery Swede ready to make a public appearance yet? We’ll just have to wait until next month to find out.
