The poker phenomenon Viktor "Isildur1" Blom was involved in some really thrilling games this weekend. For example: Blom played some shorthanded $100/$200 Pot Limit Omaha against Theo "TheoJ" Jorgensen, Jeans89, Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky and other regulars at PokerStars nosebleed tables. There were plenty of pots where more than $100k was up for grabs, and one 3-way-pot even exceeded $200,000 (below you can see how this hand was played out).
Anyhow, Blom had a great start and was up $500,000 for some time. But then the poker gods turned against him and more and more of the profit went to his opponents. Yesterday, when the weekend had come to an end, he had lost just about $200k. In other words, he had a $700,000 swing in just 3 days. We can expect to see a revenge-hungry Viktor Blom at PokerStars highest tables this week.
THE $200,569 pot
1-ronnyr3 bet $600,000 from UTG. Theo J raised 2,100, socutiesf fold, and Isildur1 called. 1-ronnyr3 re-raised to $8,500 and both Theo J and Isildur1 called.
The flop came 7J6
1-ronnyr3 bet $25,595, Theo J called with his remaining $15,255 (all in). It didn't take long before Isildur1 raised to $117,635. 1-ronnyr3 called with his remaining chips. The pot was $200,569 when all players showed their cards.
Theo J 9KK10
The turn card was the 2 and gave 1-ronnyr3 a flush draw as well. But the river card K gave Theo J three of a kind and the main pot of $71,365. Isildur1 took home the side pot of $129,204 with 2 pairs.
