Viktor "Isildur1" Blom had a tough time at the poker tables last week. This week, however, has been extremely good and he has already eliminated the losses from last week. During the 2 last days Blom has played about 2000 hands of PLO at the limits $25/$50 and $50/$100 at PokerStars. In total, he has won $383,000 against players like Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky, Rui "PepperoniF" Cao and Ilari Sahamies, who he won $130k against in only 200 hands of $50/$100 PLO.

Below are the 3 biggest pots Isildur1 won against Sulsky, Cao and Sahamies.

BLOM VS Sulsky:
Isildur1 had the small blind and bet $150, Sauce123 raised to $450. Isildur1 re-raised to $1350, and Sauce123 re-raised to $4050. Isildur1 called. Flop came JClub8DiamondQDiamond. Sauce123 bet $3450 and Isildur1 raised to $11,200. Sauce went all in and Isildur1 called.

Isildur1: 10Club8Club7Spade9Spade
Sauce123: KDiamondKClubAHeart4Heart

The turn card was the 7Diamond, and river 3Diamond.

Isildur1 won the pot of $54,094 with a straight.

Blom VS Rui Cao:
PepperoniF raised to $300 from the small blind and Isildur1 raised to $800. PepperoniF called and the flop came JDiamond5Diamond8Heart. Both players bet, raised and re-raised until they were all in. The pot was $76,680 when PepperoniF showed 5Club2Club10Diamond8Diamond and Isildur1 QDiamondJHeartJSpadeQSpade.

Two 6's (6Heart & 6Club) completed the board and Isildur1 picked up the pot with a full house.

Isildur1 had the small blind and raised to $300. Ilari FIN raised to 800, and Isildur1 re-raised $2400 and Ilari FIN re-raised to $5400. Isildur1 called and the flop came out 3Club9HeartJSpade. Ilari FIN raised $16,199 and Isildur1 called. The 7Club landed on the turn and Ilari quickly moved all in. Isildur1 called.

Isildur1 showed kHeart10Diamond3Spade5Spade for a pair of 3s and a inside straight draw. Ilari FIN showed QClubJHeart6ClubADiamond for a pair of Jacks and flush draw.

The river card is the 3Diamond, a terrible card for Ilari FIN, and Isildur1 picked up the pot of stunning $82,596

good comeback after a bad week, would be good if he can maintain this for few sessions.
i think they need to play at bigger tables with so much raising - re raising going on preflop.

Doomdy --> I think at first they were both bluffing but in the end they got pot comitted so they both went all-in. These guys are just crazy, to them a 3bet means weakness haha Big Smile

Rogan11000 --> Yeah of course going all in with a pair of 3s and an inside straight draw can make you lose big pots Big Smile

I hope the less donkey player will win in the end Blink (being pro doesn't mean you can't be a donk, by the way!)

Quoting TheMachineQC: "being pro doesn't mean you can't be a donk, by the way!"

Pros aren't donks, but very rich people who decide to play poker as entertainment, even if the game isn't their best skill, but not having problems in loosing hundreads of thousands of dollars in one day (or several days) and playing high stakes just to guarantee they won't get any pros which play lower stakes, those can be donks!
I don't want to ofend Blom, or criticize him, but if we look at a graphic of his wins and losses along his carreer, its just like any other graph of an amateur player that plays micro levels. If i, for instance, started my game 10 years ago with $10, have already invested $500 in the game, and my balance is $0, that doesn't make me a looser, or does it? Or if i am now with a profit of $1,500, i am the same amateur player. If Blom invested $5 million and register a profit of $10 million, in percentage i have won a lot more than him.
I am one of those that defend that poker players ranking should be based on the percentage of wins versus losses. This way, one can see that X player is the best of all time because he has a ranking of 85%. On the other side, the famous high stakes player Y is not that good, because his ranking his of 47%. This is how things should be done so one can look better through each player.

If i won a $10 million freeroll does that makes me one of the best players of all time? It can't be, because it was only one victory (in detail the percentage of win/loss can have a variety according to the field, but never according to the amount of money, that will just distort reality)!
