It is all just a day in the life of Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, a player that is more than capable of both winning and losing a million dollars in the space of just twenty four hours. This is what happened after he had notched up a million in profit during a late session over the weekend, to go and lose it all the very next morning.
Going into yesterday’s session he was up around $700k and then quickly added another $500k during the early stages of his $400/$800 No Limit Holdem action against Alex “IReadYrSoul” Millar. However, that $500k was wiped out and turned into a $297k loss for the day thus far as Millar stormed back to get his vengeance.
Blom then went on to lose to another of his rivals in “SanIker” in a later session to the tune of $160k at the $400/$800 No Limit Holdem tables.
None of this is new to the Swedish high stakes player though as he is well known for his massive swings in both directions. He will no doubt be right back at the tables as we speak, trying to claw back his losses and then increase the profits he has already obtained this year.
The biggest winner throughout this period was actually Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond after he banked a more than welcome $334.9k over on the Pot Limit Omaha tables of PokerStars. He played a number of heads up matches against the likes of “EireAbu”, Dan “w00ki3z” Cates and “HC_68” to finish up with that figure.
Behind both Galfond and Millar in the profits stakes was “SallyWoo” who took $138k from “Gus Hansen” at the $2,000/$4,000 Fixed Limit Omaha tables at Full Tilt Poker. He then beat Cates for another $143.7k on the $200/$400 Pot Limit Omaha tables.
Other winners included “Denoking”, “ragen70”, “Call_911” and “HelicopterBen82” who took home $264.7k, $241.7k, $167.6k and $130.4k respectively. They were all taking part in the recently trending $400/$800 No Limit Holdem tables at Full Tilt Poker yesterday, with those particular tables seeing a good thirteen hours of high octane action.
