Isildur1 took on 75 players including Scott "urnotindangr" Palmer, Ashton “theASHMAN103” Griffin and Brian “$tinger88” Hastings during his SuperStar Showdown.

Here are some details from the PokerStars blog:

"The young cash game phenom played across up to six tables of high-stakes Pot Limit Omaha (mostly at $25/$50) against a total of 75 opponents as his session, which started at 2.30pm (ET) yesterday lasted until after 5am this morning. In that time he got through 6163 hands - and well and truly crushed it.

The virtual rail was packed as poker fans flocked to watch Isildur1 play the first big session he had put in publicly for many months. During his stint Isildur1 pocketed a gross amount of--get this--$2.1million. After taking away losing pots he was still left with a very tasty net profit of $287,500.10. Don't forget the 10 cents.
"

Of course the mysterious player lived up to his name, as he lost almost all the money he won so far to Phil 'MrSweets28' Galfond in PLO Omaha heads-up today.
