PartyPoker Big Game IV Not Big Enough For Isildur1

In a surprise reversal of decisions, Isildur1 has decided to pull out of the PartyPoker Big Game IV just one day before the high-stakes 48-hour cash game was due to get underway.
Isildur1 is more used to playing at stakes of up to $500/$1,000 on Full TiltPoker and has decided to pull out of the televised PartyPoker Big Game because the £25/50 blinds weren’t enough to make the game juicy enough for him. Other reasons cited for pulling out of the deal involved “personal issues” including a driving test.
Initially Isildur1 agreed to be on the show after contacting Tony G personally and the ensuing excitement created by the announcement had the whole poker community anticipating the mouth watering prospect of watching the Swedish mystery pro live in action.
However, that has all changed now and it would seem that no one is more disappointed than Tony G who invested a lot of time and effort organising the deal and associating his name with Isildur1.
“To say I am disappointed is an understatement. It has left a bad taste in my mouth. What you have to understand is that he reached out to me first and asked and then agreed to play.”
The announcement of Isildur1’s participation in the cash game originally occurred around April 1st and had many in the poker community wondering if it was in fact a joke or a publicity stunt. Tony G moved to reassure fans at the time it was absolutely genuine putting his word of honour at stake but now his confidence in Isidur1’s reliability has come back to haunt him.
Tony G’s sincerity has now been called into question on the TwoPlusTwo online poker forum, with many members such as “DangerError” posting comments such as;  “What a joke. Lame way to get attention for this show. It’s all fake. I don’t believe Tony G, even a word.”
Another member GaryLQ was unconvinced by the so called text sent by Isildur1 to Tony G, which simply stated “Sry for not coming, take care bud.” He explains; “This text message sounds totally fake to me. ‘Take care bud’ is a slang British phrase, most commonly used in the Southwest of England. I find it hard to believe it’s the sort of language a Swede would use.”
Whatever the real explanation, Tony G seems to have lost a lot of kudos with his latest venture and has now moved to disassociate  himself from Isildur1. As he explains:
“As far as I am concerned I am washing my hands with him and moving on. On your bike!
