Yesterday we wrote about Viktor "Isildur1" Blom's epic 11-hour heads up match against EireAbu, one of the most successful PLO HU players on PokerStars this year. The match took place on Tuesday - only hours after PokerStars and Blom announced that they had parted ways - and Blom won the battle and about 200,000 USD. The Swede is up another $40k in the past 48 hours from playing Pot-Limit Omaha and[...] Read more » Isildur1 takes on new games and loses big!

Running out of time? Not understanding the game completely? Did Blom sit anyone on his place while he went for a snack and a couple of hours of rest? There’s no hands to show how things were running, but looks like it was really bad. Maybe that someone on his place thought it was Play Money action. If this really happened, he shouldn’t be very happy to see the results. A pro like Isildur1 wouldn’t do something like this, obviously i’m just kidding with the situation. But don’t try to sum 1+1 saying this was because of leaving PS contract, i am sure one thing as nothing to do with the other. He was just tired, he still didn’t have time to recover from the 11 hours session from the pther day…

i watched him play limit 1/2k omaha and duece 7 for a bit, seems like he was doing kinda good when i was watching last night (est) but i only watched for a short period of time, i guess i was his luck charm and when i went he started missing all his draws lol
not watched this games...he is a super aggressive gambler...losing this amount is standard for him... i think...he bets half a million in just one hand....that is his style of play super aggressivene and when he really got a hand..it pays off very big..

Some say he is the best but he's not...
He calls huge hands with nothing or a straight draw and hopes for the best. He is just a gambler who got lucky early on and never gone back to zero. This does not make him a good poker player just a lucky gambler.
And now he's also making bad decisions by playing these other games.
This guy is no better then the avarage poker player

Standard situation for him.. just yesterday he won something like 800k and by the time ppl were posting the new he was already losing 300k. After a few hours he ends with 600k loss.. crazy degen is gonna degen. Tbh he's very talented and a very good player but if he continues like this he's gonna be in the wall of shame like some of the degen pros we see crying in videos about their addiction.
And he's still so young can't even imagine how will he be with +10 years.

As much as i like Isildur is think he is getting overrated! cmon lets put the fact, he has everything to be the best of all time, and cant contro is gambling addictions! I remember when he started in Fulltilt, i was amzed he was a mind blowing, epic matches against Phil, Antonius and Dwan at same time. It was impossible to doesnt love this guy, but now it is over and over the same mistakes, the surprise efect is already gone. I would like to see another Isildur to mind blowying my mind again!
