After a not-so-good weekend at PokerStars nosebleed tables, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom was back in business on Tuesday night. Blom played $100/$200 Pot Limit Omaha against a number of regulars - most of them from the Nordic countries. Anyhow, the young Swede had a fantastic day and managed to take down quite a few big pots. The biggest one, however, was against the Finnish poker pro Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies and a player called "refaelamit".

Here's how the hand was played out:

refaelamit raised to $600, and Isildur1 re-raised to 2,100. Ilari FIN called. refaelamit went all in for $6,285. Isildur1 re-raised to $21,155. Ilari FIN called.

Ilari checked to Isildur1. Isildur1 went all in for $39,075 and Ilari FIN decided to call.

Turn was the 6Heart and gave Isildur1 the flush. The turn card was the 7Club and Isildur1 took home the pot of $126,000.

Sahamies, whose been running extremely bad for a very long time, got his revenge a while later when he picked up a pot of $103,000 against Blom. However, Blom still managed to get away with a profit of about $140,000, which eliminated a big chunk of what he lost last weekend.

nice to see him get back to winning soon after that big losing session but definitely needs to have some consistency in long term.

There's a small error in the article:

"Turn was the 6Heart and gave Isildur1 the flush. The turn card was the 7Club and Isildur1 took home the pot of $126,000."

Of course, there can't be two turns in the same hand Big Smile

Isildur1 has big swings all the time, I wonder... Is he really a long term winning poker player? And does he ever play Hold'em anymore? He seemed to be pretty good at it when he did I think.

One thing is clear, his pot limit omaha game improved massively in the last year, and here i'm talking about this year..

Plus, i seems he also learned a bit more about bankroll management, which is really the most important rule in poker Smile

Anyway, really good plo action on pokerstars nowadays.
