Isildur1 Rebounds with $200k Victory

Viktor "Isildur1" Blom

Apparently the best way for Viktor “Isildur1” Blom to get over a massive losing session is to immediately play another marathon session.

Last night Blom returned to the high stakes tables on PokerStars and plowed through 6,383 hands of $50/$100 Pot-Limit Omaha.

This time around Blom mixed it up and switched between 6-handed games against Ben86, Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond, mTw-DaviN, patpatman and Bernard-bb and heads-up games against the aforementioned Ben86 and Galfond.

It didn’t really matter if it was heads-up or 6-max as Blom was crushing in both.

After more than 12 hours of action Blom left the tables with $210k in profit. The win was easily enough to erase the $150k in losses he accrued against Berndsen12 the previous night.

Since winning the 2012 PCA Super High Roller for $1.3 million it appears that Blom is looking to put in some serious volume on PokerStars. Blom has recorded over 10,000 hands since winning his PCA title.

The only player with more hands in the last few days is Galfond, who has been on a sick run in the last while that has seen him play over 11k hands.

As usual Isildur1’s sessions have been swingy but he has managed to hold on to $202k in profit this year.

Isildur1 may have been the biggest story in high stakes online poker last night but he actually wasn’t the biggest winner. That honor went to Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky who re-emerged to win $267k in 3,818 hands.

Ben86 (+$104k), The Liar (+$52k) and masoren (+$51k) were also amongst the big winners in online poker last night.

Meanwhile diggidave was absolutely blasted by Isildur1 heads-up and ended up losing $288k to top the loser charts.

Diggidave wasn’t the only one to feel some pain as tiltjezz (-$106k), 1-ronnyr3 (-$99k), yhoda aboav (-$69k) all lost the equivalent of a pretty hefty house down payment.
