Viktor Blom and PokerStars Part Ways

Last night, Eric Hollreiser, PokerStars' head of corporate communications, made the announcement that Viktor "Isildur1" Blom and the company have agreed not to renew his expired contract.

Not surprised...Blom doesn't strike me as a hype man who's going to profess his undying love for PS and do press junkets and the whole rigmarole.

He wants to play poker without the BS marketing - well played.

I actually talked to him a few days ago and he said that he didn't really want to keep playing at PS. They were pretty much pushing him and he felt that he had lost quite a bit of interest for poker so now he just wants to play his own game and don't have to worry about any expectations that a contract brings.

And yes, I've met him a few times, he lives just about 20 kilometers from me. Ive met him at quite a few parties over the years Tongue

Its always the best be your own boss then that someone always forces you to do something all the time with not much of the interests

well this paves the way for him to join full tilt poker when it finally launches, and considering that pokerstars own full til now- he basically transferred himself from one company office to another (virtually), just wonder how many of the old pro players will remain in the new full tilt...

I think that to see him leaving the Pokerstars Team has definitely something to do with the Full Tilt Poker restart. Blom’s carreer and success is linked with FTP story as well so, having FTP coming back in good wealth again, what better name to give the face for them and to help them gaining player’s confidence than the most famous FTP player, anonimous and after having his identity revealed? Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, of course! No one would need a magician to pull this rabbit out of the hat.
