Viktor “Isildur1” Blom is in Las Vegas playing at the 2012 World Series of Poker.
Few players command more attention in the poker world than Viktor Blom, and no one’s debut at the WSOP has been more anticipated.
Blom is playing in Round 1 of the $10,000 Heads-Up Championship and based on the tournament results the young Swede has been posting this year, we’re expecting big things.
Blom exploded into the live arena in January at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure when he won the $100k Super High Roller for $1.25 million.
He then went on to win two titles in the Spring Championship of Online Poker.
Blom made his name as a high-stakes poker legend on the internet long before he was old enough to play live in Las Vegas. Now that he’s here, however, we’re looking forward to deep runs and hopefully some high-stakes side game action.
Blom is playing Andy Bloch in the first round of the Heads-Up Championship and, depending on whether he wins, there’s a good chance you’ll be seeing feature coverage of his next match on PokerListings.com.
For every round in this event we’re opening the voting on Twitter and letting our followers decide which match we’ll cover.
At the end of each round we’ll post the next matchups on our $10k Heads-Up Live Updates page. You can then vote by tweeting who you’d like to see @PokerListings on Twitter.
For now check out a few pics of Viktor Blom at the WSOP.
***Update*** Viktor Blom defeated Andy Bloch in Round 1 to advance.
