It's been reported that Viktor "Isildur" Blom was the player that profited most of the cashgame highstake players last week. Blom made a profit of close to $2 million after a pretty long down swing. On the other side of the spectrum, Phil Ivey is topping the minus league of last week.
Posted by lukasb: Am i the only one that would retire from poker (at least nose bleed stakes ) if i ever made almost 2M in one week?
Why would you retire if you owning the nose bleed stake? Your mentality at this level would change you would stay in the game and getting better and owning everybody lol. If you plan to make a living without going to nosebleed stake it is much better without all the pressure from media and people looking at your results.
Anyway keep it up Blom!! We are happy to hear about your swings!!
4 days ago blom was my hero- he was winning enough to buy a villa in the bahamas 3 days ago blom was piece of sh1t to me- he was losing more than i managed in my whole play money career 2 days ago Blom was my hero again - he was winning so much that it would be enough to buy 5674 blonds and 78420 bottles of vodka...would make an epic party yesterday Blom was an absolute moron- he didn't log in (though that might mean that he used my idea and had an epic party)
I think he has NO respect for money... and is severely addicted to poker. he should just take the money and run. Buy a modest house and a decent car and maybe a pick-up truck and call it a day....and live an easy life.
And he should STAY away from any women who knows who he is,....or THEY will take all his cash....in divorce court!
Would YOU trust any chicks who troll high stakes poker rooms...?
these lists make fascinating reading. why would you want to risk all that money if you have allready won about $20,000,000. They must be all staked to play these tables and i bet they have only won a fraction of this
