Viktor “Isildur1” Blom simply won’t stop winning in 2013.

The relentless Swede fired off another 3,435 hands in the high-stakes games on Full Tilt Poker and burned his opponents for nearly $1 million.

The victory comes a little over one week from his last $1 million day on the site.

Blom split his time between PLO and FLO8 and played in games that included Patrik Antonius, KPR16, Sam Trickett, Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene and Jens “Ingenious89” Kyllonen, according to highstakesdb.com.

Isildur1 Runs Over Phil Galfond for $741k

Isildur1 dominated Phil Galfond.

The real action, however, came against Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond in a series of heads-up $500/$1,000 PLO CAP matches.

Galfond, who penned a blog last year that expressed his admiration for the young Scandinavian, played a swingy session that saw him rake a few huge pots but never quite catch up to Blom.

In the final hour of their session Blom started to pull away and in a little over 300 hands he went from a $170k winner to an $814k winner.

Galfond finally had his fill and decided to call it quits, down a total of $741k.

Blom was far and away the biggest winner last night and ended with a total of $991,700 in profit. Outside of Galfond, Sam Trickett was actually the biggest loser dropping a total of $220k.

With last night’s session Blom further cemented his status as the biggest winner this year with $5.5 million earned on FTP in 2013.
