Many of the players grinding the Super High Roller Bowl Online on partypoker would probably have Viktor Blom in their list of most talented poker players. On Tuesday, the Swedish superstar lived up to that type of billing with a win and a runner-up finish that earned him nearly $580,000.

Blom started the day off with a near-miss after falling to Dan Smith in the heads-up battle for Event #8 ($25,500 Super High Roller). Smith defeated the Swede to walk away with the title and $527,000 while Blom had to settle for earning $365,600. Third-place finisher Artur Martirosian earned $153,000 for his performance.

Blom wasn’t done though. He outlasted the 74 other entries in Event #9 ($10,300 High Roller) to win $213,750. The last player in his way, Christoph Vogelsang ended up taking home $146,250 while third-place finisher Arnaud Enselme walked away with $101,250.

The day began with Luuk Gieles winning Event #7 ($10,300 High Roller) for $234,000. George Wolff fell one spot short of the win and earned $166,500. Ali Imsirovic grabbed a bronze medal and added $117,000 to his bankroll.

Another three final events will crown champions on Wednesday with Events #10-#12 playing down to a winner.
