Isildur1 Loses to Ziigmund but Still Rocks in May

Since <em>PokerStars.com</em> and <em>Full Tilt Poker.com</em> were shut down, there is not much word around regarding most of the poker pros; even the Europeans seem to have been keeping a low profile lately. So let us now see what is going on with our favourite grinder from Middle Earth!
As HighStakesNews.com reports, most recently Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom has put up a fight against SCOOP Main Event winner Sami ‘LrsLzK’ Kelopuro and two other players in $25/$50 PLO. The session did not go well for Kelopuro, losing around $43,000, but ‘Isildur1’ was up $53,000 after the match, totalling at around +$600,000 for 2011 so far.

His upswing was, however, thwarted soon afterwards as he clashed with Ilari ‘Ziigmund’ Sahamies. In all, Blom seemed to do his usual thing yesterday, losing about one third of his total winnings in this year from which $175,000 went to ‘Ziigmund’ alone. This does not change the fact, though, that ‘Isildur1’ is still up over $350,000 and Sahamies is still down $850,000.

Other notable grinders from the northern region include Patrik Antonius, who lost $242,000 in a single night and Gus Hansen, who, in contrast, earned $280,000. As action slowly resumes in online poker, our focus of attention shifts away from the US, apparently northwards on both the American and the European continents. That is, until May 31.
