match was closer than the result. stakes are too low, raises/bets are just not respected the way they would be in higher stakes. The reason Isildur got to this stage were beating/losing million dollars to the best players in the world. Not a mini grind for 150k max. Stars is smart for signing him and promoting these matches as a whole but in actuality the buzz will only be temporary. Isildur will either get beaten often and the value of the match loses luster or full tilt will counter with something similar if it hasn't already.
