If you follow online poker news then chances are you know exactly who Isildur1 is, but if you don’t we’ll help you out by giving you a bit of background information on the player. Nobody knows for sure who Isildur1 is, but we do know that the player showed up from nowhere and competed in the biggest cash games online at Full Tilt. Isildur1 has now signed a sponsorship deal with PokerStars and has become the newest member of Team PokerStars.

PokerStars has just announced a new promotion called the Superstar Showdown where players will have the chance to play against Isildur1 in a heads-up match. If you have a bankroll of over $150K you can request to play against Isildur1 heads-up at any time. The heads-up match will last 2500 hands and will be played on four tables with two tables being NL Holdem and two tables being PL Omaha.

You can work out the stakes on a case-by-case basis with PokerStars although the minimum stake will be $50/$100 on each table. The winner of the game is the player with the most profit after the heads-up match. For those of us that don’t have anywhere near $150K in our bankroll, PokerStars is offering two players the chance to play against Isildur1 with a free $15K bankroll.

There are two ways to qualify for your chance to play against Isildur1. You can finish 1st place in a $10+$1 Superstar Showdown round one qualifier to earn a seat into the Superstar Showdown Final. The other way to win a seat is by winning one of the freerolls associated with the promotion. There will be a total of 2 final events with 128 players in each of the finals.

In order to win a $15K bankroll to play against Isildur1 you need to win the Superstar Showdown Final. There will be cash prizes for top finishers throughout many of the events during this promotion, but there is no doubt that the main goal on everyone’s mind will be to win a chance to play against one of the wildest online poker cash game players in the world.

You should make sure that you spend some time reading over all of the rules for the Superstar Showdown on the PokerStars site before you start trying to qualify. Not many online poker players ever have the chance to play against a player as famous as Isildur1, but your time could be coming sooner than you think.
