And one last note on Isildur1 in closing; recently, his apartment estimated at 1.5 million euros, was seized by the Swedish tax authorities.

The reason? His winnings on Full Tilt before black friday and a provision of the Swedish tax code indicating that the gains made in Europe are not taxed while those earned abroad are taxed at 40%.

Full Tilt is based on the dAlderney Island, legally outside Europe, the Swedish players should therefore have to declare their earnings to the IRS.

Viktor must be annuyer of time where person or almost knew.
