Isildur1 Returns with a Vengeance
Viktor “Isildur1” Blom made up for lost time by winning nearly $400k in the high stakes games on PokerStars last night.
Blom has been missing in action for the last few days and missed some huge games when Phil Galfond, Ilari Sahamies and skjervoy combined to win over $600k on the weekend.
The young Scandinavian was in the thick of it last night, however, as he recorded 1,789 hands of $25/$50 to $50/$100 Pot-Limit Omaha.
Blom’s biggest victories came against noted online stars Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky, Ilari Sahamies and Rui “PepperoniF” Cao.
He was nearly unbeatable through the evening and ended up recording victories on 13 of the 18 tables he played. By the time the dust had cleared Blom had racked up $397k in profit.
As usual, Blom has been very swingy this year but is now up over $400k on PokerStars in 2011.
No one came close to Blom last night but 1-ronnyr3 had an impressive night winning $204k through 690 hands.
Cao also managed to find turn around his earlier losses in the night and finish up $140k.
Rounding out the top five biggest winners were tr1cky7 (+$44k) and Vaga_Lion (+$43k).
Meanwhile Sauce123 took the worst of it last night. He dropped an astonishing $300k, mostly against Blom.
The loss dropped Sauce123 from being up over $500k in 2011 to just $219k. He might want to avoid Blom in the near future.
Right behind Sauce123 in the loss department was Ilari Sahamies, who prior to last night had been running hot on PokerStars.
Blom snapped Sahamies hot streak and the aggressive Finn ended up losing $148k.
It was the same old story for Chinese player f2fish who donated another $87k to the high stakes games last night.
Finally insyder19 (-$74k) and calvin7v (-$66k) both made it into the top five losers category last night.
