Leo "ISILDRooN" Nordin is a Poker Professional born and raised in Härnösand, a town on the Swedish east coast.
At the age of 16, Leo discovered that there were quite a few people in his hometown making some serious money playing online poker. He made a small deposit into his poker account and began at the $.25/$.50 tables. He didn’t take the game too seriously until he turned 18 when he managed to climb the stakes reaching the $25/$50 NL games in just 6 months.
While he began his career as strictly a NL player, Leo made the transition to PLO when the NL action began to dry up. Admittedly, the transition was difficult for him and he experienced a number of downswings before he was able to turn it around. Leo is well known as "Fishhater" on the Swedish poker site Svenska Spel.
Leo is an extremely talented golfer and after high school he attended a Swedish golf college. Despite his successful poker career, he still manages to play a fair amount of golf. In 2011, he attempted to qualify for the pro tour but missed the cut.
When it comes to live tournaments, Nordin hasn't played many, but he managed to make the final table in the first two he entered against more than 300 players.
In late 2012, Leo began making training videos for RunItOnce.com, a poker training site owned and operated by Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond. In addition to the videos, Leo answers questions and offers advice to subscribers in the forums of the site.
