Isildur1 Keeps Rolling, Wins $1.3 Million on FTP
A red-hot Viktor “Isildur1” Blom won just over $1.3 million last night and is once again the biggest overall winner on the site this year with $3.36 million in profit.
According to highstakesdb.com, Blom fired off 2,476 hands in the last 24 hours to win a total of $1,308,481.
It didn’t matter what game Blom was playing as he crushed 2-7 Triple Draw, Omaha-8 and PLO.
The real highlight of the day, however, was when Blom took on American high-stakes pro Ben Tollerene in an epic $400/$800 PLO match.
They actually started by playing $250/$500 but Blom convinced Tollerene to immediately raise the stakes. It was a decision Tollerene likely regreted as Blom ended up smashing him for nearly $700k.
The only losing Blom did yesterday was when he took a quick break from the normal high-stakes tables to take part in Team PokerStars vs. The Professionals.
Unperturbed, Blom went right back to the nosebleeds and continued to crush.
Isildur1 Passes PostFlopAction for Top Spot on Full Tilt
Blom is now in the midst of a serious heater with over $2.5 million earned in the last seven days. He’ll attempt to avoid donating it all back like he did earlier this year when he picked up $5 million but then lost all but $1 million of it.
The young Scandinavian finally passed Alexander "PostFlopAction" Kostritsyn for top place in the overall 2013 profit leaderboard on Full Tilt. It was by a slim margin as Blom only leads PostFlopAction by about $30,000.
Blom is currently playing the European Poker Tour stop in London. He’ll be on one of the featured tables on the livestream today if you want to check it out.
