In a brand new interview, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom talks about his two SCOOP titles, his very first World Series of Poker this year, how the high-stakes scene online has been after Black Friday, and more.
Viktor Blom on...
his very first WSOP this year
I'm really looking forward to going to Las Vegas, playing in the Main Event, and just experiencing what it's like to be there. I haven't quite decided which events I'm definitely going to play yet, but I'm under pressure to decide. I talked to a lot of other players in Monte Carlo recently about what it's like over there and it sounds full on, so it will be cool to actually experience it myself.
how the high-stakes cash games online have been after Black Friday
There is great high-stakes action every day at PokerStars, so for me, everything has been good.
his two 2012 SCOOP titles and the remaining events
I was very happy to win the two SCOOP titles. It's nice to win, of course. I take each day and game as they come, try to play my best, and try to keep up the momentum.
the $1,000,000 buy-in tournament One Drop
I think it's too much money for one tournament. Maybe it also takes away the prestige from the other smaller tournaments to have one with such a large buy-in.
having so many loyal followers online
I think it's fun that people are following me. It makes me want to do my best for them and give them something good to follow.
what new players on PokerStars should think of when playing poker
Just play as much as you can if you enjoy it. If you like something, you'll get good at it as long as you put in the time.
