"Isildur1" Up Over $500k Since SundayPublished on February 1st, 2011 7:04 pm EST
Over the past few days, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom has managed to do some damage on Pokerstars, adding roughly $500,000 to his bankroll at the expense of players such as Phil "MrSweets28" Galfond and "gordo16".
Blom's run started on Sunday evening in his "Superstar Showdown" match against Daniel "w00ki3z." Cates, aka "Jungleman12". "Isildur1" managed to take $51,196 off of Cates during the 2,500 hand match, which moved the Swedish phenom to 2-1 in "Superstar Showdown" matches.
Blom's positive momentum spilled over into Monday, as he managed to win $228k playing against the likes of "Sphinx87" and "gordo16". According to HighStakesDB.com, Blom managed to take $159k off of "gordo16" during their 2,134 hand match.
On Tuesday it was Phil "MrSweets28" Galfond that suffered at the hands of "Isildur1". "Isildur1" managed to take nearly $150k off of Galfond during their match, leading Galfond (aka "OMGClayAiken" on Full Tilt Poker) to post this to his Twitter account shortly after the match ended:
According to HighStakesDB.com, Viktor Blom is now up $455,077 over the past 36 hours, over a total of 10,539 tracked hands.
The crazy thing is that all of these hands over the past 36 hours have taken place at $25/$50 tables.
Include the results of Blom's "Superstar Showdown" match against Daniel Cates, and "Isildur1" is up over $500,000 since Sunday afternoon.
I think it's safe to say that we'll be seeing "Isildur1" on Pokerstars a great deal over the coming days and weeks..
