Isildur1 vs. Issac Haxton

The mysterious new Team PokerStars online phenom Isildur1 (real identity unknown) will take on the likes of Isaac “philivey2694” Haxton in his first ever SuperStar Showdown. 

PokerStars describes Haxton as a “formidable online and live opponent with experience at the very highest cash game levels online”.

Haxton was the runner up at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event in 2007 for a cash out of $861,789.  His career best was at the WSOP 40th Anniversary $40,000 event in 2009 where he took home just shy of $1.2 million.

Isildur1 has already started to make waves at PokerStars, taking the online poker room for a few hundred thousand dollars within two days of his announced signing, then losing it all two days later.
