Who is Odonkor1?
Real Name: Joel Nordqvist
Also Plays Under: Despite having just recently turned up on Full Tilt Poker, Nordqvist has been playing high stakes cash games online for a while now under "Odonkooor" on the iPoker network and "Jooeell" on Betfair.
Online Notes: "Odonkor1" has seemingly appeared out of nowhere in the past couple of weeks, doing battle against the likes of Tom "durrrr" Dwan and "jungleman12".
Nordqvist's foray on to Full Tilt Poker has been a very successful one so far, as he has managed to win an impressive $854k over the past three days (April 17th to April 19th). This has come over a total of 8,214 hands, meaning that "Odonkor1" has managed to make an impressive $104/hand per hour during that time.
"Odonkor1" clearly has a preference for No Limit Hold'em, as every one of the 8,214 tracked hands has come in that game.
It will be interesting to see how "Odonkor1" does if he continues to play against the likes of Tom Dwan and other top players.
Live Notes: According to TheHendonmob.com, Nordkvist has one "live" tournament cash during his career. This came in the 2008 EPT Barcelona Open in 2008, when he finished in 28th place for approximately $28k USD.
Other Notes and Info: Despite using a similar alias, "Odonkor1" is not "Isildur1" (who is widely thought to be Viktor Blom).
For starters, "Odonkor1" actually seems to employ some sort of a bankroll management system, while "Isildur1" just tends to spread his entire bankroll out over 6-8 tables at a time.
Also, "Odonkor1" seems to be content just playing No Limit Hold'em, while "Isildur1" seems to prefer Pot Limit Omaha.
"Odonkor1" is from Sweden.
