Isildur1 Drops Out of Big Game

Tony G
'To say I am disappointed is an understatement.'

Unknown Swedish online cash game phenom Isildur1 will not be attending the PartyPoker Big Game as originally planned.

"I am afraid I am going to have to break the news that Isildur1 will not be coming to the Big Game IV at Les Ambassadeurs in London this weekend," said Team PartyPoker's Tony G.

"Eddie Hearn, the event organizer and Managing Director of Matchroom Sport, personally spoke to Isildur1 and his manager and confirmed this to be the case.

"To say I am disappointed is an understatement."

According to G, the two had personally agreed on a 50/50 staking deal before managers and agents got involved.

"It has left a bad taste in my mouth," he said. "What you have to understand is that he reached out to me first and asked and then agreed to play. As far as I am concerned I am washing my hands with him and moving on. On your bike!"

G claims he was going to fly Isildur1 and three of his friends to London for the April 11-13 cash game promising to raise the stakes in the game to accommodate the Swede.

However, Isildur1 now has some "personal issues" to attend too, including a driving test.

G now claims Isildur1 will be at the PokerStars European Poker Tour Grand Final in Monte Carlo later this month.
