It may take a little while for the mystery isildur1 to get back to me, as it seems he's going to be pretty busy for the time being. As you've probably already heard, he's been signed to Team PokerStars.

One thing that will be interesting is if we find out who isildur1 really is. It has been heavily speculated that he is Swedish pro Viktor Blom, but a teaser by PokerStars that "his real identity may be revealed before the PCA in January." Hopefully it doesn't turn out that it was Viktor Blom all along, as this will be kind of boring. Personally I'm routing for it to be Norman Chad. Who knows, he might have a holiday home somewhere in Sweden!
In the other big news that has the poker world talking at the moment Senate Majority Leader (I have no idea what this means exactly, but I'm guessing it means he's a fairly important dude in USA politics) Harry Reid has been circulating a bill that could dramatically affect American player's ability to play poker. A 'blackout' period of 15 months to American players on major online poker sites to enable them to get a licence is perhaps the most worrying potential consequence of the bill. There has been a lot written about it, so rather than delve into it I'll direct you to some good cliff notes on the situation here.
Fortunately it looks like the bill has at least been put on the backburner (see here), so the poker world can perhaps breathe easy. At least for the time being.
