I got an SMS from Isildur1:
“Sry for not coming, take care bud.”
I am afraid I am going to have to break the news that Isildur1 will not be coming to the PartyPoker.com Big Game IV at Les Ambassadeurs in London this weekend.
Eddie Hearn, the event organiser 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
To say I am disappointed is an understatement. I have spent so much time talking to him and reassuring him recently but he’s just not going to come. We agreed a 50/50 staking deal, it all started out with personal contact and then in recent hours managers/agents got involved as you would expect.
It has left a bad taste in my mouth. 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!
Isildur1 has some personal issues to attend
I was going to fly Isildur1 and three of his friends to London and everything was all set. He mentioned that he didn’t think that the stakes were big enough but we had agreed to make the game much bigger when he came in! As I said before, I wanted to make him bleed from the mask and that opportunity will come!
Isildur1 has some personal issues to attend too, I know for a fact that he is soon taking his driving test – good luck Isi! What might your first set of wheels be? A Dodge Viper? I have had confirmation from the authorities that he will be present in Monte Carlo.
I have wired in a lot of money
I cannot wait for the PartyPoker.com Big Game IV. My walk-on is ‘Bicycle Race’ by Queen though there was talk of the James Bond theme ‘From Russia With Love.’ I am going to crush them all. There is a new eviction process but I will not be needing to use that as it is bust and bike time! I have wired in a lot of money…
By the way I have brought an amazing player with me to London, unfortunately it isn’t Isildur1. This guy is special. I am thinking about putting him in a mask…
