On January 8, the identity of the mystery swede Isildur1 was finally revealed - something the whole poker world been waiting for for a very long time (second half of 2009 - when he showed up at the nosebleed tables at Full Tilt). In an interview with PokerStars at the PCA, Viktor Blom, 20, admitted that he's the man who has won and lost millions of dollars online under the alias Isildur1. Of course this just confirms what many have been saying for a very long time, but at least now everyone knows for sure. This also puts an end to further speculations who Isildur1 might be (Tony G, Robert Flink etc).

Viktor Blom is playing PokerStars Caribbean Adventure at the moment. He has made it to Day 2 with a healthy stack. You can read more about that here.

Im hoping he will cause some upset at HS, If this guy gets a good bankroll behind him you can bet all the outher HS players will start twitching, id rather have seen him on FT.
I dont think his identity came as a shock to anyone...possably the tax man.
