  9. In October, Viktor Isildur1 Blom and Gus Hansen parted ways with Full Tilt Poker, ending the re-launched site's experiment with sponsored pros.

On Sunday night in Rozvadov, the Swedish powerhouse added a second live win to his resume, coming back from a nearly 9-1 heads-up chip deficit to win the partypoker MILLIONS Germany Main Event for €1,000,000 ($1,048,153 US).

In the meantime, the poker lifestyle is considered to be unhealthy: a bad regimen, burned nerves, poor nutrition, and social skills that leave a lot to be desired.

  24. The rumors swirling over the last day or two were true: Viktor "Isildur1" Blom and Gus Hansen (pictured) are no longer sponsored pros of Full Tilt Poker.
