Just saw the news myself. Too late to be a breaking news reporter for cardschat I see.
I agree with deuces the mystery will be good for Pokerstars publicity.
If it really is Isildur I am sure the secrecy would have been part of the contract negotiations.
BUT it does raise 2 questions:
1) How can Pokerstars be sure it really is Isildur (they would need to have done some due diligence to get proof).
2) How can we be sure it isn't just a Pokerstars stunt because the real Isildur is unlikely to be able to object to them having created a new username, just to gain publicity.
This reporter says; until the identity is revealed why should we believe anything or support and propogate this apocryphal.
