After a terrible losing streak last weekend, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom took a break at 16:00 on Monday. It didn't take long before people started speculating in whether or not the young swede had cleaned out his PokerStars account. But at 01:00 am on Tuesday he returned to the $50/$100 and $100/$200 Omaha tables and continued playing.

I would have to agree with you there. Viktor Blom is one scary dude heads up, and to stick it to somebody as skilled and respected as Phil Galfond is a heck of a thing. Now all he needs is a proper haircut, and I know just the barber for him... me!

ah there is no point in looking at one day or another- today he might me up a million, tomorrow down two millions, week after up again- it is a total roller coaster out there at the nosebleed tables, actually i do believe that high stakes tables are best to compare with the micro stakes tables (1/2 cents) look at the dudes over there- they win/lose/lose/win and on and on- the only difference is a few more zero's at the end of pot total

This guy is amazing in the least up and down and down and up. Then of all it's Omaha which is something a lot of players don't fare well at. I would hate to be the one down 360K, but if all I had to say is I need to work on my HU I guess no worries Ay?

Galfond’s sadness is Blom’s happiness, it’s always like this. But these guys know each other very well, it must be one of the main problems of playing in this levels. Either you play online or live, it will take a long time till a new unknown player appears to play at these levels. And this only means he will be new at those levels, most probable when this happens is to be a very well-known player from a lower level who decided to try out higher flights.

You also need to take in consideration the sick variance you get in plo, i mean even on regular players it's pretty common to have minus 10 buy ins downswings... If you ask me i think a PLO star nowadays is Jens, his game is rock solid!!
