Isildur1 Beats Tony G.

In the latest PokerStars Superstar Showdown, mystery online poker player Isildur1 managed to beat popular player Tony G. and walk off with $44,000 G’s.  The two played 2,500 hands of poker on Sunday evening.

From PokerStars.com:

In the SuperStar Showdown, players commit to a single 2,500-hand session beginning on four tables with minimum stakes of $50/$100. Each table lasts for 625 hands and in this instance, Isildur1 and Tony G played two tables of no-limit hold'em (Tables 1 and 2) and two tables of pot-limit Omaha (Tables 3 and 4). Isildur1, as we all know, is an incredibly experienced multi-tabler who regularly plays long sessions. Tony G, not so much. Although he is quite seasoned when it comes to nosebleed-stakes cash games, unlike Isildur1's previous challenger Isaac Haxton, the name Tony G is not exactly synonymous with multi-tabling online heads-up matches. As a result, The G ended up timing out a bit more than the average bear during the early stages of the showdown.

Isildur1 is PokerStars latest big name signing and he has created plenty of excitement over the past few weeks since joining the world’s largest online poker website.
