PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller $200K GTD won by Viktor ‘Isildur1' Blom

Tags: PokerStars, Viktor Blom.
Posted on Wednesday, November 29, 2017 by "T".

November 26, 2017 definitely was a beautiful day at PokerStars for the famous Swedish online poker player Viktor ‘Isildur1' Blom, when he claimed the top spot on the $2,100 Sunday High Roller $200K GTD event for $63,842.

The highly popular Sunday No Limit Hold'em tourney encouraged 114 players to join (with 40 re-entries) and many of them were deemed the best in the game such as Ben "Ben86" Tolleren, Fedor "CrownUpGuy" Holz, fish2013, Jason "jakoon1985" Koon, Jens "Fresh_oO_D" Lakemeier, Linus "LLinusLLove" Loeliger, Justin "ZeeJustin" Bonomo, Mustapha "lasagnaaammm" Kanit, Sami "Lrslzk" Kelopuro, and PokerStars pro power couple Liv Boeree and Igor Kurganov.

Only the top 20 players will get a slice of the pie, and the event lasted a grueling nine long hours before it ended. Those who made the money but not in the final table included Cobus83, Damián "pampa27" Salas, Liv Boeree, and WSOP Main Event champ Ryan "anti-durrr" Riess.

Blom got into the final table second only to fellow Swede ‘Sasuke234' in chip count, and it was a headstrong battle between the two of them all throughout the final table, until Blom managed to pummel down Sasuke234 at a heads-up match, with Sasuke234 getting $48,655 for second place. Iván "negriin" Lucá got third place for $37,081 while Mustapha Kanit settled in 5th place for $21,538.

In January 2012, he won the first live tourney of his career, the $100,000 Super High Roller event for $1,254,400 at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.

this is amazing.
 DaCapo7111/29/2017 8:50:03 AM GMT
Gratz to Isildur1! Another 68k was really amazing for a tourney with only 114 entrants. A lot of people have 2 years to work for this money and it was a ream to win this price in only one event. But we try it again and again and we will see what happened Blink

It really is fantastic to see that the legend of Isildur is continuing. I haven't read mush about him of late and it is nice to see him back in the headlines for winning a tournament.

Massive congratulations go out to Swedish poker professional Viktor Blom on being crowned champion of the Sunday High Roller event at PokerStars. Congratulations also to Liv Boeree for finishing in the money.

didnt heard for him for a long time,but we can see that he is in same shape with winnings on poker table!nice amount for big buy in and first place for this young player!for sure we will read lot of news about him in near future!

Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom is certainly a very good player and I'm not at all surprised that I won another big prize .... there were very few players so there were good chances of winning .... but these events are certainly attractive to rich people ... and personally for me such tournaments are impossible
 CALICUL11/29/2017 9:21:20 PM GMT
Think that this professional player like Viktor "Isildur1" Blom is playing many tournaments per year with high buy in and his poker skills are excellent. Is a great performance but he has managed to win a $ 10,300 tournament in the past with almost 1.1 million dollars prize. Anyway he won an important amount and is profitable this year with almost 1.6 million dollars.
 Mober11/29/2017 10:21:51 PM GMT
Not much of a profit there for that big buy in.
But i guess if you are a player of that magnitude you are not missing these games.
That buy in isnt much for them.
First two places won by swedish players with 3 from UK in the money.
 pochui11/30/2017 1:55:51 PM GMT
well yeah this is so amazing, wow 68k win, now at long last the legendary victor isildur blom has enough of a bankroll to have another 30 mins session at the high stakes pot limit Omaha tables. interesting tourney- 114 players with 2,1k buy-in and lotsa big names, promo event me ponders.
 Gerimantas11/30/2017 7:52:26 PM GMT
Yes I almost forget this player because not see his name in news for long time, but now he plays again and gets very good result. Also win 68 thousands and maybe this is not bery big money for him, but maybe he use this money to build another bankroll if he is out of money at this time

You have not heard of this player because he is no longer a pokerstars vip. He signed a contract with unibet poker and is now their ambassador. Viktor "Isildur1" Blom has money to play, has a nice profit for this year and i hope he will play more live. He does not play too much live maybe in future.

These players the have made money, permitting them to stay away from the tables,
for quite some time. Many of them can even retire, with what they have so far.
Not that they are going to do so though. It is called addiction for some reason Smile

For many professional poker players the holdem poker, omaha or another game is an ordinary job. For others it is passion and for others addiction. These things combine very often. Some are proud, others are maniacs and examples can continue. It is strange for those who have lost a lot of time with these games and have not earned money just lost.
 Mober12/3/2017 8:20:54 PM GMT
There is a fine line between passion and addiction. And i would go that,
all of them are addicted with the game. It is gambling after all at the end, one way or another.
And this can be seen with all the prop bets the professionals are making from time ti time also.
