0
Viktor Blom took down SHRB Online Series Event #14 for over $407,000.

Just 48 hours after nearly capturing two Super High Roller Bowl Online Series prelim titles on the same day, online poker superstar Viktor Blom was back in the winner’s circle with another Super High Roller victory on Thursday.

Blom topped the 40-entry field in Event #14 ($25,500 Super High Roller, 8-Max) to capture his second win in three days and a $407,500 payday.

It marked the fourth SHRB Online Series final table cash for Blom, all of which have been either victories or runner-up finishes. His first score came last Sunday in Event #2 ($25,500 Super High Roller) where he finished as the runner-up to Christopher Hunichen, taking home $320,625. Then on Tuesday, Blom earned another second-place finish in Event #8 ($25,500 Super High Roller), falling to Dan Smith in heads-up play, which brought him $213,750. Finally, in Event #9 ($10,300 High Roller) Blom scored an outright win and added $213,750 to his totals.

All told through 15 events, the man known as ‘Isildur1’ has earned more than $1.3 million in less than a week.

Finishing right behind Blom in Event #14 was Mike Watson, who picked up $265,000 for second place. And David Peters found the podium for the second time on Thursday, finishing in third place for $165,000.

David Peters’ first podium finish was in Event #13 ($10,300 High Roller, 8-Max) where he outlasted the 70-entry field to take down the $217,000 first-place prize. Joao Vieira finished as the runner-up which was good for $150,500. Then Justin Bonomo, who picked up the biggest win in the series thus far on Wednesday, notched another result with a third-place finish for $98,000.

The third event on the schedule to wrap up today was Event #15 ($10,300 High Roller, 8-Max) which saw Mark Radoja take home the title and $195,000. Pauli Ayras fell in second place but locked up the six-figure sum of $132,000. Finally, Ole Schemion followed up his PokerStars SCOOP winning performance on Wednesday with a bronze in this one, taking home another $88,500.

Three more high roller tournaments will wrap up on Friday including the conclusion of Event #17 ($25,500 Super High Roller, 6-Max) which has Adrian Mateos holding the overnight chip lead.
