Viktor "Isildur1" Blom's first week without a sponsor now is in the books and it can't be described as anything else than success. In fact, he ended up as the biggest winner online with a profit of impressive $859,582 - about $360k more than the second biggest winner, Phil "MrSweets28" Galfond.

What makes this even more impressive is that he was minus before the weekend started and then won $970k on Saturday and Sunday!

This is the biggest hand Blom played on Sunday:

"Isildur1" betted $1,640 from the button. "Jeans89" folded from the small blind ($200) and "Sauce123" raised to $4,960 from the big blind. "Isildur1" made the call. The flop came out 7Club2DiamondJHeart and "Sauce123" betted $7,808. "Isildur1" quickly re-raised to $24,800. "Sauce123" re-raised to $85,555 and "Isildur1" threw $292,620 into the pot. "Sauce123" called with his remaining $9000.

The turn card was the 9Spade and "Sauce123" got a straight, which left Blom with only 4 outs. However, Blom had the poker gods on his side as the river card was the JDiamond, which  gave him a full house and the pot of about 200k.

nice win for him.. to bad he can't keep it for much time Sad
The more i see the more i realize the only way to really go that far is to make moves and gamble a bit. You can win money playing tight and safe poker but the move is a must to squeeze the money.

wow nice win again by blom...hope keep it up and not lose it in one session...he is crazy gamble and i really like his style...very hard to read the hands he plays of his super aggressive style....

for me it look more and more like blom=sahamies=hansen...similar over aggressive playing style, similar too swingy sessions, maybe the only difference between them is the fact that sahamies is the most broke of them all Hit PCand even playing on borrowed money, but who knows, maybe the rest will follow
