For those of us lucky enough to witness Isildur1’s meteoric rise to the top of the poker world between October and December 2009, it is something we will never forget. The team that brought you the online poker documentary Bet Raise Fold returns with The Legend of Isildur1, a summarized retelling of the original rise and fall of Victor Blom, aka Isildur1.
Almost overnight, one young Swede took on and annihilated the very best poker players in the world, often at the same time. As quickly as he arrived at the mountain top, just as quickly again did he fall off. To this day it remains both a cautionary tale and a testament to his genius. The story is told in a rhyming, fairy-tale style, add a mysterious and magical edge to the story. m
