Isildur1 is owning the crap out of Isaac Haxton, and the future of U.S. online poker regulation. It’s all in Monday’s edition of the PTP Hit and Run.
More pwning by Isildur1: In an ongoing heads-up match at PokerStars for a million bucks, Viktor “Isildur1″ Blom was leading Isaac “philivey2694″ Haxton by about $280K after day two.
