Viktor “Isildur1” Blom polished off his weekend by winning $344k yesterday and is now up a staggering $2.4 million in 2013.

According to hsdb.com Blom is up $2,443,311 in 7,903 hands over the last seven days. 

It’s the biggest hot streak Blom has recorded since his record-setting run in the fall of 2009.

To put things in perspective it took Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky about 365 days to win $3.5 million in 2012. Isildur1 could potentially top that number in two weeks.

Blom started 2013 with a massive $564k win against Alex “PostflopAction” Kostritsyn but then out-did himself by recording two $700k-winning sessions in the following days.

Formerly known as a No-Limit Hold’em specialist, Blom has been crushing the 2-7 Triple Draw tables this year with huge wins against Scott “mastrblastr” Seiver and Alex “Alexonmoon” Luneau.

Blom has also been dominating the Omaha-8 tables with numerous victories against the still-unidentified SallyWoo.

Yesterday Blom ran over Alex Luneau, taking him for over $360k in a heads-up match.

Isildur1 Finally Even on Full Tilt Poker

Blom is now the undisputed biggest winner on Full Tilt 2.0 with nearly $3 million in profit since the site re-launched.

Interestingly if you include Blom’s all-time numbers on Full Tilt, he’s now officially even on the site for the first time since his 2009, when he collapsed against Brian Hastings for $4.2 million.

Yesterday was a good day all around for members of Full Tilt’s Professionals as Gus Hansen, who is down millions since FTP re-launched, finally recorded a $100k victory on the site.
