If there was one player that would have been dreaming of a good start to 2013, it would have been a certain Viktor Blom, considering the very up and down year he had in 2012, which saw him witness massive downward and upward swing of millions at a time.
2013 however could hardly have started any better for Blom as he banked a further $696.4k over the last couple of days to bring his total for the first four days of the year to an astonishing $1.144 million. This is because he had already managed to amass profits of $564.4k on the very first day of the year. The day after New Year saw him drop a little with losses of $117k over on the 2-7 Triple Draw tables against “mastrblastr”.
It didn’t take Blom long though to exact his revenge as the very next night the pair both met again on the 2-7 Triple Draw tables. Within less than four hours he had already stung his opponent for $392k, before his opponent finally walked away.
With “mastrblastr” put in his place, it left Blom looking for another victim. He eventually found “SallyWoo” over on one of the Omaha Hi/Lo tables and had a session with him for just under two hours and took $275k from him. He then went and had a 5 minute spell against “Seb86” for another quick $30k gain before heading to bed.
This has pushed Blom right to the top of the earners on Full Tilt since the site was re-launched, with his total sitting at $1.56 million.
Nobody could come close to Blom, however there have been some other decent profits made in the last couple of days with “Bttech86” starting the year off well with a profit of $277.4k. He was playing at the $200/$400 Pot Limit Omaha tables at Full Tilt against opponents “Poker_KaMI”, “ronnyr37617”, “howisitfeellike” and last year’s highest earner “Sauce123”. “ronnyr37617” also had a good few days, recording profits of $134.6k in that very same session.
We then had “PostflopAction” taking a $128.1k chunk out of “SetoKaiba1” on the 2-7 Triple Draw tables and “yahii” posting profits of $71.3k on the $50/$100 Pot Limit Omaha tables over at PokerStars.
The Largest Pot!
Due to players preferring CAP games, the biggest pot we have seen of late was the $67.5k that “HeadShotyoV” lost to “yahii” down to a simple smaller kicker. Another big pot between the two was a strange one as “HeadShotFoyV” seemingly attempts a $16k bluff on the river leaving himself just $700 in his stack, yet folds when “yahii” re-raises to take the pot of $48.5k.
