Isildur1 Doing His 2009 Thing?

2011. February 02. |
In the better part of 2010, Viktor ’Isildur1’ Blom performed disappointingly at the online tables, unable to repeat his astonishing results of 2009. Although it would be far-fetched to state 2011 might be his year, he has indeed been convincing in the past few days. He currently has over $600,000 in profit, winning against the likes of Phil Galfond, Ashton Griffin and Mike Gordon.
As you probably know, Blom won the latest SuperStar Showdown against Daniel ‘jungleman12’ Cates, last year’s biggest online high stakes winner. During the 2500 hands heads-up, Isildur1 profited $51,196. Ever since, he appears to be unstoppable: in just a matter of two days, he won over $600,000.

He played against Mike ‘gordo16’ Gordon and Sphinx87 on Monday, winning $228,000 from them in total. Against CardRunners instructor gordo16, he played 2,134 hands of $25/$50 PLO and won $159,000, even though losing a massive pot of $31,547 to his opponent.

Tuesday saw his clash with Phil ‘MrSweets28’ Galfond, with similar results: their session of $25/$50 PLO rewarded Isildur1 with $150,000, which Galfond summarised on his Twitter as “Ouch.” After taking a short break, Blom returned to settle Kanu7’s and Ashton ‘theASHMAN103’ Griffin’s hash, too. He won both HU matches, played in $25/$50-$50/$100 NLHE and $25/$50 PLO, respectively.



In all, Isildur1 has played 12,860 hands of high stakes poker since Sunday, building a $618,815 profit. It remains to be seen, however, if he finally manages to end his downswing or does his 2010 thing and loses his entire bankroll in a single session…
