Posted on Tuesday, May 08, 2012 by "T".
PokerStars 2012 Spring Championship of Online Poker started 2 days ago and already 10 of the 40 events are in the books. However, the most notable win so far has to be Viktor "Isildur1" Blom's win of of Event #2-Medium last night - $215 NLH (1 million guaranteed)! No deal was made among the finalists so Blom received amazing $247,200 - his biggest online tournament cash ever! We might hear mor[...]   Read more » "Isildur1" wins a SCOOP Event!

News talk about “amazing” $247k, but that’s peanuts for Blom, although it was his “biggest online tournament cash ever”! I think he plays this type of action because it may be part of the agreement with the sponsor, I can’t find another reason for Blom to pay $215 and sit in the middle of so many players that can help ruin his career, either than to have fun.

ITs not always about looking good.

That's a heck of a nice return on 215 bucks. what was the field size?? no doubt there was some stiff competition on there.

Being viktor people would be out to get him too , it's like getting a scalp.

i have to agree that he plays here just because of agreement with stars, the end cash of 215 k is decent enough, but i doubt he expected winning- the reality is that you have to spend lots of time in these tourneys due to huge fields and can easily walk away with nothing or just double buyin...not very appealing if you are blom imo

Has anyone actually watched the guy play live/online?

Only snippet i have seen is a recent high roller tournament in the carribean when he won with KQ.

Is he really that tough to play?

oh my god...another proof that stars is rigged -lol-

sooo obv....

this persons win ALL allins preflop with KK AA QQ , me and you i guess lose permanent the real important hands with this monsters and lose ALL flopped trips, flushes str like me , in my case at e x i lose in stars to a laughable 87% in tourneys allins when me and the opponent has an A in push or fold time with BETTER kicker...

you cannnot do anything in these cases ..its poor luck or bad luck or rigged

i think its rigged, bc i lose pocket KK too in more th 75 % of cases in important phases or hands

lol

i am sure, stars is rigged ...def....

and this is anoterh sign for me, horrible how much "luck" this pros have always, i know he plays super, bt why this persons not out wiht AA and KK and always me ?

He plays overbet... That's quite complicated strategy and definitely he has a very good use of it... I've seen him playing cash, and tournaments and most players are not able to find a clue about his game...

Now he is 3rd on SCOOP 3-H, and only 35 players left... Maybe we'll see another win Tongue

I dont think head KQ is a bad play, i think for him its a very very good hand cause knowing his history he is fearless and can go all in with much worst hands!!!!

Of course it's not... And from his position, with big stacks it's a very good hand. As I said, he plays overbet and having the big stack is the most important thing in that kinda play.

He also bluffs a lot (which is posible aslo becouse of big stack), as you can see on SCOOP 3-H he is playing now... He is chipleader for over 200k chips, and playing overbet makes everyone fold.

I wouldn't like to be on the other players skin hehe

Really nice win from Viktor Blom but the prize is nothing compared to the stakes he is used to play...

It's interesting to see that he does a lot more better on online tournaments than on live events.

Nah mate he aint all that, here's what you should do re-mortgage your house, sit down with him at 4 tables HU and see what happens. The fact that he's made millions of dollars at age 21 beating the worlds best players in cash, tournament and now online tournament should have no bearing whatsoever.

Also heads up against a shortstack with huge blinds, KQ is definitely miles behind his opponents range easy fold.

Do you play on stars at all?

As I said a couple of posts before, we maybe see another Isildur win... And it's a fact. He wan the SCOOP 3-H 160k USD.

Of course it's not much for him... But 2 out of 2 is a very good record Tongue
