Gus Hansen and Tom Dwan may have faltered but Viktor “Isildur1” Blom is reaping the benefits of Full Tilt Poker 2.0.

After a swingy November, Blom has been on fire in December and after peaking at $1.1 million is still holding strong with a profit of $722k.

Blom has played 39,721 hands since Full Tilt re-launched and has won huge sessions against Eugene “fishosaurusREX” Yanayt, DrugsOrMe and teammate Hansen.

The young Scandinavian also found time to win that $200k challenge against Dwan last weekend.

Yanayt is currently the biggest winner on Full Tilt Poker with $894k in profit since the site returned but Isildur1 has to be considered the hottest player at the moment. 

Here’s a look at the top 10 biggest winners on Full Tilt Poker according to hsdb.com:

  • 1. fishosaurusREX: +$894,339
  • 2. davin77: +$838,550
  • 3. Viktor “Isildur1” Blom: +$649,634
  • 4. Rui Cao: +$532,762
  • 5. Alex Luneau: +$475,370
  • 6. cottonseed1: +$457,550
  • 7. no_Ola: +$449,861
  • 8. KPR16: +$401,843
  • 9. Seb86: +$381,585
  • 10. Sauce1234: +367,981

Hansen Reeling From $2.2 Million Downswing, Dwan Down $987k

The other two members of Full Tilt Poker’s Professionals haven’t been nearly as successful as Blom.

Hansen is down an astounding $2.2 million since FTP re-launched while Dwan, who returned to the site later than Hansen and Blom, is feeling $987,189 worth of pain.

Regardless of how the Professionals have been faring, the high-stakes games on Full Tilt Poker are certainly alive and well.

The majority of the massive winners and losers in online poker can be found on the site.

Isildur1 even played a little $300/$600 No-Limit Hold’em this week, which hasn’t run online for ages.

Dwan and Hansen aren’t the only well-known players who have stumbled out of the gates as former cash game killers Andreas “skjervoy” Torbergsen and Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene have both lost hundreds of thousands.

Here’s a look at the top 10 biggest losers on Full Tilt Poker according to hsdb.com:

  • 1. Gus Hansen: -$2,266,859
  • 2. durrrr: -$987,189
  • 3. patpatpanda: -$618,671
  • 4. skjervoy: -$546,504
  • 5. SallyWoo: -$527,020
  • 6. Alexonmoon: -$409,976
  • 7. Poker_KaMI: -$301,212
