Red-Hot Isildur1 Crushes Sauce1234, Tops $4m in Profit

Viktor Blom
When will it end?

Viktor “Isildur1” Blom continued his incredible run on Full Tilt Poker in 2013 by winning $1 million on the site last night.

The majority of Blom’s profit came from a huge PLO session against the ultra-tough Ben “Sauce1234” Sulsky

With the victory Blom is officially up $4.1 million in 2013 according to hsdb.com.

It’s taken less than two weeks for Blom to win more money in 2013 than anyone managed to win online in the entirety of 2012. Whether he can hold on to the profit is another question, however.

Blom is getting very close to hitting the legendary numbers he recorded in 2009 before he took a $4.2 beating from Brian Hastings in one day.

Phil Galfond
Even Galfond has been Blomed.
 

Sulsky, Galfond Just Two of Victims

Sulsky was arguably the best choice to slow Blom down. Sulsky was unstoppable in 2012 and ended the year as the biggest winner with $3.5 million in profit.

Instead Blom massacred Sulsky for $743k over 411 hands of $400/$800 Pot-Limit Omaha.

Blom wasn’t finished, however, as he went on to win several hundred thousand dollars more in the 2-7 Triple Draw games against Alex “Alexonmoon” Luneau to top $1 million in profit on the night.

It's not like Blom has had any easy opponents during his run. Yesterday he took online crusher Phil Galfond for more than $425k.

At this point you wonder if Blom’s opponents will continue to give him action considering the roll that he’s on right now.

Blom is also the biggest all-time winner on the New Full Tilt Poker with $4.5 million in profit since the site re-launched.

Why dont pokerlistings show any of the biggest pots anymore?

Four million in eight days is ridiculous. Over/under on how long it takes him to lose it all? 7 days?
