Posted on 17 May 2011 by "T".
After almost 5 months of complete silence, Viktor Blom has finally done his second interview since he reveled himself as 'Isildur1' - the mystery swede that the whole poker world has been talking about since 2009.

Yes, Victor Blom really strong player behind a table in private As time observed that of its game on Poker Stars, At first like all would develop not in its party, but an hour later game has exchanged. He has started to attack aggressively the contender, and eventually Victor has won even before time given on game! We will look that will be further as there will be his career!!!

The career of Blom is also good for regulars at cash tables or SNGs, because some Isildur-wannabe sits to the table and thinks "oh, they play 29o so I can play it too and I'll win" Smile No doubt that he is one of the best, but also he has still a lot to learn, as every poker player. You just can't stop learning and trying to play better, because if you do after a couple of weeks you'll be way behind the opponents.

You have it wrong LooseKiddie, 7-4s is the killer hand Blink
Seriously though, the interview backs up the rumor I had heard last year, that he has a lot more money and is far from broke. Only 20 years old and already the world's best NLHE HU, WTF!

It is nice to see someone who has already won so much in poker being humble about his relation with poker, assuming he still has a lot to learn. Ok, so "he is just 20 and he had to say that", but won more than almost all the 20 yo players i know together. It's not easy, as we all know. I read many players saying playing with bigger amounts of mony can increase the amount of winnings. This is true, but it can also, and most probably, put you in bankrupcy. One only should move forward in money level when reaching a certain skill and bankroll. This two factors should always work together, so that things dont go wrong. And if, for some reason, one of this to factors goes down again, the playing level should go down too.

noone knows how much bankroll a poker pro has so kinda unfair to judge them on their apparent bankrollmanagement.
dont think he'll do much well in live tournaments though because of his crazy aggressive style

To play that high stakes one need a complete disrespect for money. So the $4.7 million are just a number.

It will definitely require a big change of his playing style, if he is going for more than a few bigger tourneys.. Yes, he is one of the best NLHE HU poker players now a days, but as every other player, there is still lots of things to learn Smile

I do not think he is broke and he has great potential otherwise PS would not have signed him. He has much to learn concerning live tournaments.

I actually remember that loosing session on full tilt poker, he actually lost 4.4 millions dollars only to Brian Hastings. After this episode Brian Hastings admitted he joined forces with Brian Towsend and Cole South the study all the high stakes hands isildur1 played on full tilt poker after they shared all their hand histories.
The funny part is that Viktor actually didn't know this was possible at the time, he doesn't even uses a heads up display or a tracker poker software.
I really hope he will come back and win some money again in the online world, this year alone is on minus 600.000 dollars. I'm sure he is not broke, he cash out 3 million dollars from full tilt poker, even that he lost 4.7 millions.
