Isildur1 Starts 2013 with Huge $564k Score

If the first couple days of 2013 are any indication, it could be the year of Viktor “Isildur1” Blom.

The young Swede burned through 1,536 hands on Full Tilt Poker yesterday and crushed his opponents for $564,546 according to hsdb.com

Blom is hardly a one-trick Hold’em pony these days and split his action between FLO8 and 2-7 Triple Draw, playing up to $1,500/$3,000 stakes.

Isildur1’s key victim was Russian Alexander “PostflopAction” Kostritsyn. The former Aussie Millions winner dumped over $500k to his Swedish rival.

With his victory Isildur1 instantly becomes the biggest winner of 2013 and is now the third-biggest winner on Full Tilt Poker since the site re-launched in November.

Of course Blom wouldn’t be Isildur1 without the swings and he could potentially lose it all back today.

Erik Sagström, Ben Sulsky Also Record Big Sessions

The high-stakes games on Full Tilt Poker have been firing for the first couple days of 2013 and Alexonmoon and Blom’s countryman Erik “Erik1223” Sagström both won over $100k yesterday.

Ben Sulsky, who was 2012’s biggest winner with $3.5 million in profit on PokerStars, used his Full Tilt Poker account (Sauce1234) to win $61,271 yesterday. 

Meanwhile Scott “mastrblastr” Seiver (-$97k) and Seb86 (-$92k) were among the big losers on FTP yesterday.

Gus Hansen, who lost a staggering $3 million on Full Tilt in 2012, has yet to play on the site in 2013.
