It has been an very turbulent year for young Swede Viktor "Isildur1" Blom at Full Tilt Poker. Blom started the year by winning $5 million in about 2 weeks time, then he lost almost everything of the enormous profit during the month of February.
In an interview that was published on Monday, Blom was asked how he overcomes a bad run. Blom answered, "I usually go out and drink in town with friends and try to forget poker exists for a night, and then try again tomorrow once I am feeling better from the night before."
Blom must have had a really, really good night out last weekend, because he has been doing extremely well since Monday. He has played against Seb86, SallyWoo, patpatpanda, KPR16 and other regulars at the 2-7 Triple Draw, NLHE and PLO tables and, according to highstakesdb, he is up $1,165,191 in the past 48 hours (5322 hands), which means that he's has won $2,058,204 (66392 hands) this year and is the second biggest winner online (PostflopAction is the biggest winner with $2,978,418)! Of course this doesn't necessary mean that Blom has put an end to the losing streak, but for sure it has given him a nice boost of energy and confidence to continue battle at Full Tilt Poker's nosebleed tables - against the best cash game players in the world!
