Isildur1 is Back as Online Poker Saurons Tremble With Fear
Feb 2, 2014
Viktor Blom aka Isildur1, the Swedish poker pro continues his superb run in 2014, adding another $300,000 to his tally.
Isildur1, whom we now know as Viktor Blom, a highly-talented poker professional from Sweden, continues his great start of 2014. Blom has had a very good beginning of the year earnings wise, but now the Swede is really collecting the dollars.
One of the biggest stories in casino gambling news today was Blom’s addition of $300,000 to his bankroll. Isildur1 battled SallyWoo at $2K/$4K Omaha Hi/Lo tables yesterday. The matchup was controlled by Blom from the very beginning, and despite SallyWoo’s decent comeback later on, the Swede took home the big bucks after only one and a half hours of action.
The two professional players’ match has also produced yesterday’s biggest pots. Take a look at a couple of them: Isildur1 flopped the nuts, with SallyWoo presumably making a decent full house (10s over 6s): $60,000K pot. And another one: SallyWoo aggressively plays hi and lo draw combo catching the nuts on the river resulting in a $56,000 payout.
How’s Viktor Blom doing this year?
The latest $300,000 score will go nicely with Blom’s previous earnings, making up over $1.6 million in profits this year. This makes the Swedish poker genius the biggest winner of 2014 so far. Blom had another great run against Alex “IReadYrSoul” Millar, scooping $630K at $300/$600 NLHE tables. That win allows Isildur1 to end the day at $563K, but he almost lost it all the very next day. Unfortunately, we don’t know if Blom is playing online or using Android casino poker app to access the site.
Viktor Blom’s $1.6 million profit so far does put him in the lead, but Ben “Bttech86” is breathing heavily down the Swedish poker pro’s neck with a total of $1.45 million profits so far this year. The pair are the only players to break the seven digit mark when it comes to online poker profits this year.
