Isildur1 Goes on $251k Tear

The Swedish phenom known as Viktor “Isildur1” Blom was at it again last night winning $251k on PokerStars.

Perhaps inspired by his recent victory against Dan “jungleman12” Cates in the SuperStar Challenge, Blom booked 6,151 hands of $25/$50 PLO on the site last night.

Blom’s main opponent was CardRunners instructor Mike "gordo16" Gorodinsky. In just over 2,000 hands of PLO Blom was able to extract $159k from the online pro.

From there Blom moved on to another PokerStars high stakes regular in Sphinx87. Blom raked $64k before the session ended.

Blom finished his night playing against Australian Mitch “LooneyGerbil” Carle where he was able to log yet another victory.

Bloom took just under $40k before Carle claimed Isildur1 was too good in the chatbox and left.

It was one of the biggest sessions Blom has recorded since joining Team PokerStars Pro and railbirds were left wondering if the Swede might up his stakes soon.

Thanks to last night's score, Isildur1 has essentially erased the downswing he went on near the start of the month.

Isildur1 was the biggest winner in online poker last night with $251k but urnotindangr2 also had a big night taking down $75k.

Some of the other big winners included Gus Hansen (+$71k), luckychewy ($50k), and Cole South ($43k).

gordo16 had the dubious honor of being the night’s biggest donator dropping $161k. Also in the red were OnTheRize (-$90k), Sphinx87 (-$69k) and Harrington10 (-$61k).
