Things can change quickly in the game of poker. A great example on that is Viktor "isildur1" Blom's incredible winning streak in the past 2 weeks or so.

Viktor is great player, I read a lot of articles about him, and I watched him couple of times playing high stakes poker, usualy PLO and 2-7... I read online that he started with 200$ as a kid, and just in 1 year he reached amazing sums that were around 1 million... He knows how to win a lot, but he also knows how to lose a lot...
Posted by doubletop777: Imagine winning this amount of money in a month. This is the equivalent of winning the lottery for most people but, as we all know, he will probably lose the same amount next month!!
I am imagining that what would I feel if I'd be down 1 million and already feeling sick of it so there's that.

I think Victor Blom is one of these players that just don't see poker chips as real money.A lot of these poker kids start so young they have no concept of money or risk which makes them very dangerous players.

Viktor Blom is an amazing aggressive player .. and make unexpected plays and that is what made him special these are the reasons it is so easy for him to make lot of money in small period of time but it is a sword with two edges , he can lose same amount quickly he did it before playing at full-tilt .. it was painful for him losing millions but now he is back winning

i don't know, maybe i'm old time... but i better buy myself a villa in the bahamas and spend remaining of my days bathing in the sun, drinking cocktails, inspecting melons at the beach, playing some freerolls or $0.02 sng's rather than risking losing a couple of million a month... guess i'm too old for this.

If I could've afford a bahamas villa retirement plan then I'd say fcuk gambling in the minute when my plain arrives to the island... This Viktor guy here must not love the Sun that much as me.
