High Stakes Poker: Isildur1 Up $1 Million in a Week


Viktor Isildur1Blom (pictured) has been on a tear as of late, according to HighStakesDB. Since April 27, the Swedish transplant is up almost a million dollars on Full Tilt and PokerStars combined. Let’s start with the latter, where Blom banked almost $200,000 on April 28 and added another $80,000 to his coffers one day later.

On the final day of April, he earned another $360,000 on PokerStars before going up $1 million overall since April 27 on May 1. He slipped a little bit on Saturday, shedding about $100,000 to end the seven-day stanza up $902,000. Not too shabby.

Over on Full Tilt, Blom trended roughly the same, albeit with lower profit numbers given the recent elimination of high-stakes games. He won about $200,000 on May 1 before losing $60,000 back one day later.

Most of Blom’s damage has occurred in Omaha High-Low, where he has profited $667,000 since April 26. Over the same time period, he’s up $144,000 in Draw Games and $52,000 in Pot Limit Omaha. All-time, Blom is down $628,000 at the high-stakes games tracked by HighStakesDB on PokerStars. On Full Tilt, he is almost $4 million in the red.

For the 2015 calendar year, Blom is up $867,000 on PokerStars, according to the same site, across 444 sessions and almost 50,000 hands. That’s good for the second highest total by anyone on a single site as we enter the fifth month of the year. Your winner in the clubhouse in that department is bbvisbadformeon Full Tilt, who has profited $960,000.
