Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom was doing very well at PokerStars' nosebleed tables last Friday and Saturday. He started at the $25/$50 PLO tables but quickly got bored and move over to the $100/$200 PLO tables where patpatman and other regulars were playing.

After a few hours of play, Blom was up around $800k and decided to play at the $200/$400 PLO tables against patpatman and 1Il|1Il|1il|. The winning streak continued for Blom until he was up $900k, but things then changed drastically after he lost 3 pots within the range of $181k-$198k (the three biggest pots of the last 24 hours - at that time) to 1Il|1Il|1il|.

Shortly after these beats he opened up some 2-7 Triple Draw tables. The losing streak continued there as well and he decided to leave when he had lost another $300k. At this point Blom had been playing almost 18 hours and less than $400k remained from the $900k profit. Luckily, Blom finished the long day with a $119k+ session against Ilari Sahamies at the $200/$400 PLO tables. In total, Viktor Blom won $511.8k during the 18.5-hour session. It will be intersting to see how this week goes for him.

Blom's graph should be something nice to watch. If we don't look at the values, it will be like one of a regular good player. but, when watching the values, with so many hundreads of thousands of dollars involved, one can even get sick just for looking at it. Anotherday at the job, another half a million for 18 hours of work.

These guys win/lose life-changing money like its all play money to them. In a sense it actually is since its money earned in a game and besides they're far too young to realize real value 500k has to an ordinary hard-working person.

Just the rakeback they get from it i guess its more than most ppl earn in a year. Wonder how much Isildur1 raked in just this session.

That 1Il|1Il|1il| it's an really interesting figure, somehow he only accept playing the highest stakes available only against Isildur...

If you ask me i think he is one of the pros that used to play full tilt poker and has some good history with Viktor.

yeah this 1Il|1Il|1il| is a bit suspicious- playing rarely at nosebleeds, but has no problem playing against blom...surely he feels he has an edge over him. not necessarily he is a pro from full tilt times, but no one can deny that. blom is such an unstable figure- i think this playing style helps you grow gray hair in no time Big Smile

win 1/2 million lose 1/2 million,it's all too easy for those players to win or lose those amounts,if i won 1/2 million i'd be playing 1c-2c tables for a while so as not to lose it all back too quickly.

that could be tom dwan, my mate texted me 6am the other morning saying blom and dwan were playing omaha for some massive stakes Smile

^ Anything is possible as long as all these new high stakes account are playing on pokerstars...

The funny thing is that back on full tilt poker the majority of all high stakes players were known and only Isildur was unknown, now it's the opposite Smile
