But what’s $326,881?

Not even 21-years-old, the most recognizable online poker player in the world recently spoke about how he lost $5 million to Cole South and Brian Hastings.

"I think that that they tried to create an advantage, and they are cowards,” he told Bluff Europe.  “I was playing against Cole South in a 300/600 game and became really tilted and 3-betted every hand. He was in the lead and suddenly decided to stop playing. I said, ‘what the hell?’ and he apologized and said he must go. Then, just seconds later, Brian Hastings took his seat. They probably sat next to each other. Anyhow, Hastings won $4.5 million against me.

“I found out they had collaborated, but I still felt okay and could do other things in life that I appreciate. After some time had passed I didn't think much about it at all.”

Isildur’s approach to playing online poker is to bet big and don’t be afraid to dig into your bankroll.

Isildur1 told Bluff Europe, the only way to develop and win big is to make huge gambles with one’s bankroll.

“All players have to put their bankroll at risk in order to develop,” he said.
