2012. May 09.
Following winning the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) #2-M $215 NLHE event, <strong><em>&lsquo;Isildur1&rsquo;</em></strong> took down the #3-H $530+R NLHE 6-max event, too.
PokerStars pro Viktor ’Isildur1’ Blom accomplished something big on 6-8 May; despite the fact he has been always considered primarily a cash game and heads-up specialist, he has just taken down two consecutive SCOOP events. In addition to besting a field of 8,240 in the #2-M $215 NLHE event for $247,200, he also won the #3-H $530+R NLHE 6-max event.

In the latter tournament, the first hand was played on 7 May with 486 entrants; after 740 re-buys and 374 add-ons, the prize pool grew to a respectable $800,000. They played it down to the final table on Day 2, and the setup was as follows:

SCOOP #3 Stacks

SCOOP-03-1

First out was ‘snake8484’, eliminated by ‘Isildur1’, then ‘B4d3m3!st3r’ ran into ‘Ruxandescu’s’ aces.

SCOOP-03-2

Blom had dropped down before getting his second scalp of the finale, beating Sussie Smith’s busted straight draw. After yet another weaker period, doubling up like seen below re-established his position:



With the elimination of ‘BiatchPeople’, the heads-up between ‘Ruxandescu’ and ‘Isildur1’ was played down like this:

‘Ruxandescu’ first increased his lead…



...but the PokerStars pro doubled up again:



‘Isildur1’ was once again in the lead, flopping a top pair against a nut flush draw, and eventually won the final table with another all-in on the flop.

SCOOP-03-3

Blom got $160,000 for his finish and the honour of being a double SCOOP champion.

The end results are as follows:
