QOTD: Online Poker and Isildur1′s Objective

A poker-playing friend sent me this today after a conversation yesterday at lunch during which I wondered aloud what semi-anonymous poker phenom Isildur1′s real objective is given his outrageous playing style, and his massive wins and losses:

Isildur1 isn’t playing to make enough money to retire. He’s playing a video game, and trying to run up the highest score. That the score is denominated in dollars is only of nominal importance.
