Posted on Monday, December 10, 2012 by "M".
Yesterday the long-awaited re-match between Viktor "Isildur1" Blom and Tom "durrrr" Dwan was played across four $100/$200 No Limit Hold'em tables on Full Tilt Poker.  Both players were supposed to bring $100k each to the tables, but late negations were made and instead they sat down with $200,000 each.

Ok, so Blom was able to manage with his super aggressive style after taking the lead for Dwan and he kept that until the end of the game and won. But these hands described on the news text show there was a lot of "gods" involved in the action, turning this titan battle into another level. I will want to see another game between these two, the result of this one don't convince me.

there were definetly some cooler hands in favor of isildur but still I think that dwan just getting owned by blom.
the last match before black friday was going the same way.
Still hoping that they will have a rematch where they will play PLO,which i think favors dwan more then blom

Tom represents the new breed of poker player. He is highly intelligent, continuously evolves his style of play to stay ahead of the pack, and is thoroughly determined to prove himself as the best of the best.

IMHO Blom completely destroys Dwan in HU NLHE. I'm not in the least bit surprised by this, Dwan is an incredible NLHE player, obviously - but I think he is outclassed by a handful of HU nosebleed players and certainly outclassed in this game by Blom.

well to be fair to dwan- it's very hard to tell who is who from one session- if we do not mind the history between them, then this was just one session & yeah it was dominated by blom, but it could be just because he had a good day at the office, card were running well etc. however if we do add the history into account- then yeah it seems that at nlhe hu blom has an edge over dwan

Not sure why but almost everyone thought that this is going to happen...

I personally always thought that Viktor is in the top 5 HU NLHE players in the world. I think a game with Cates would be very interesting Smile

i actually watched one of the tables for about half an hour and i think Blom owned Durr,he had too much for him.
maybe next time Tom.

So did they played for 4 x 200k or just 200k on 4 tables like 50k on each table?

Anyways I want it being televised!!!

He already played Daniel Cates in the superstar showdown last year and won.

Blom is one of the most aggressive and most professional online players, I always love going to look at Blom games!

I followed all the matchs back in 2009 and i tell you guys, this ones are not even 10% of the fun of it was before!
I remember the crazy railing of that matchs, in the times where everybody was guessing who was the mistery swedish player, with some of them being raight saying it was bloom, and where Doyle was RIP every 2 minutes! Very funny and the best matchs ever!
