High Stakes: "Isildur1" Up $700k Last Month
high stakes, isildur1, Viktor Blom.
Posted on Monday, March 02, 2015 by "T".
Viktor "Isildur1" Blom has not created any headlines for quite some time now. The main reasons are that he's not been running that good nor lost any major sums (well, compared to what many of us are used to hear about).
However, everyone's favourite Swede finally had a pretty good month in February at Full Tilt and PokerStars's nosebleed tables. According to highstakesdb, he played approximately 24k hands and won $296k on PS and $408k on FTP
The winnings will probably come in handy as he is still third on the list of the biggest losers this year (-$450k). The biggest loser on FTP is Phil Ivey with $1.3 million. The biggest winner of 2015 is Ilari Sahamies with about $1 million in the black. Below is a list of the 5 biggest winners/losers of February 2015.
1. "JayP-AA", $527 079
2. Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, $408 463
3. Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies, $406 780
4. Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, $296 149
5. "HeadShotFyoV", $257 389
1. Phil "Polarizing" Ivey, -$1 120 354
2. "Patriktortonius", -$624 323
3. "SanIker", -$549 836
4. "AthaCliath", -$141 799
5. "Hi how are youu", -$55 708

| Great to read about Viktor Blom again and its good to see him winning again. We all know that this wont last very long and he will be losing all this and more very soon before he wins it all back again!!|

| That's very true doubletop,with Blom it's like being on a rollercoaster up and down and up and down,one day he might go up and stay up. Although i suppose he is actually a winning player it doesn't seem like it with the money he loses now and then,i mean it's not little sums when he loses it's huge ones!!!|

| Wonder how much of these sums were his and how much went back to their 'backers'. Or let's say it's still pretty early in the year, probably he still plays with the sponsor/endorsement money he receives from Amaya. Good life. Pretty-pretty-pretty good life.|

| Haven't heard much about Victor Blom recently but good to see he is still around and winning,the last I heard he was losing loads.|
Not very often that you'll hear that Phil Ivey is "the biggest loser" in a sentence!

| Ok so last month he was up 700K, next month he will drop 1 million, then he will either win or lose very big 3 or 4 month from now. |
The roller coaster never ends.
It is truly a shame but he is totally addicted to gambling and cares nothing about bankrolls just the rush he gets playing for big pots.
I like him

| Like ronninharper said, its a roller coaster for him and more few players, playing like this kind of games or tables for they is nothing, and 1 month they get 1 million, next month are down 2 millions, next month up 3 millions, and is this for all year and all months, and in the end of the year see the statistics of win and lose, and see that is a huge win that make her bankroll bust very high, so is not a suprise see this kind of winnings.|
For me is a player like others, get bankroll, give a shot with strategie and sometimes win others lose.

| Phil Ivey is the biggest loser of last month and 2015 so far, with nearly $1.3 million in losses .More he is the second biggest online loser post-Black Friday with over $6 million in losses since 2012.|
He remains the biggest all-time winner since records began, back when he was with Team Full Tilt. However, that record is slipping every day. The only reason his losses have not commanded more attention is because Gus Hansen has always had the limelight for that dubious honour. Now that Gus potentially has given up the online game, Ivey is the biggest loser right now.

| those guys (isildur, gus and ivey (accordingly to Sorin)) are the biggest losers of online poker world only because potentially the biggest loser of them all, the one and only pochui doesn't have enough cash to lose- that's why he keeps on losing only cents and doesn't hit the spotlight he really deserves.|

'cuz they aren't playing with their own money. I mentioned this above, they probably have many sponsors and backers and they aren't in it for the short gain, that is why they are having success.
But a million is a million for anybody trust me. It's not playmoney.

| "Super High Roller Bowl" will run from July 02-04 at The Aria(the day before the WSOP Main Event commences on July 05), and that 31 players have already promised to ante up the monstrous buy-in($500,000 buy-in tournament )|
Among those confirmed attendees are the likes of Antonio Esfandiari, Dan Colman, Dan Cates, Tom Dwan, Doug Polk, Erik Seidel, Andrew Robl, Phil Galfond, Sorel Mizzi and Tobias Reinkemeier.
