Two of the most prominent professional poker players have challenged Isildur1 to a poker match on the same day. Tony G, who was the first to make the request, had already lost the Superstar Showdown against Isildur1 on PokerStars. Perhaps, Tony G does not think much of his luck at PokerStars and wants to play against Isildur1 on the Party Poker site, which is home turf. He is also ready to give an extra prize of $50,000 to the lucky winner.
Tony has requested the poker gaming community at 2+2 to support the rematch, stating that he wants all poker players and poker enthusiasts to support a fair match, which his sponsor site deserves. He has challenged Isildur1 to play against him at his home site Party Poker and has offered to add $50,000 to the prize pool. The topic is currently one of the hottest at the 2+2 forum.
Viffer also wants to play against Isildur1, but in a different way. He is thirsting for a live, high stakes match against Isildur1, and he suggested the same to be played in the Bahamas. Using a style that is unique to Viffer alone, he has created a new post on 2+2 poker forum titled “Isildur 1 challenge.” In his post, he has stated that he would like to play against Isildur1 at the PCA Tournament, which is scheduled to be held in the Bahamas. In his own words, he would like to play “1 table 150k deep unlimited rebuys,” with one of the rules of the match being that no player can quit unless 2,500 hands are played or $150k are lost. Stating that he is open to other offers, and if the player he has challenged is not interested, he would accept the situation. Apologizing for his spelling errors, he joked that he has to give the readers “something to complain about.”
The stakes suggested by Viffer are much higher than those at the tables Isildur1 usually plays, and Viffer’s buy-in is going to be equal to the $150,000 cap that both Isildur1 and Tony G had on losses.
Although PokerStars has already scheduled a third Superstar Showdown, the identity of Isildur1 has not yet been revealed; moreover, the online poker gaming community at 2+2 poker forums is absolutely sure that there is hardly any chance of Isildur1 answering these challenges. Besides, PokerStars will not permit its top player to play against Tony G on Party Poker.
