Unibet Signs Viktor “Isildur1” Blom to Twitch Streaming Deal
The King of Swing is headed to Twitch.tv thanks to Unibet Poker.
The online poker site signed a special deal with Viktor “Isildur1” Blom that will see him stream for the first time for 10 hours exclusively on Unibet.
The streaming marathon is scheduled for May 27 between 11:00 and 23:00 BST and while Unibet doesn’t offer the high stakes Blom usually plays he will be fooling around in the NL/PLO50 to NL/PLO400 games on the site.
Viktor Blom Streaming on Twitch.tv for First Time
Isildur1 famously went on the biggest heater in the history of online poker back in 2008.
With his true identity still a mystery at the time Blom played some of the biggest sessions ever held, winning and losing millions on a daily basis before it all came crashing down in an epic $4.2 million loss to Brian Hastings.
One of the most prolific online players ever, Blom has yet to stream on Twitch.tv.
So far Jason Somerville, Daniel Negreanu and ElkY are among the big-name poker pros who have taken the Twitch.tv plunge but they aren’t known for playing nosebleed stakes quite like like Isildur1.
Perhaps the best part is that Blom is playing lower stakes so the average poker player on Unibet will get a chance to play against the Swedish legend.
It’s not the first time Blom has been involved with Unibet. Last year Blom made an appearance at Unibet’s Golden cash game.
You’ll find Blom’s eventual stream on www.twitch.tv/unibetpoker.
