High Stakes: Blom Wins Half a Million Dollars!

Posted on 07 June 2013 by "T".

It's been quiet from Viktor "Isildur1" Blom since he took down the SCOOP 2013 Main Event in the end of May. The main reason for that is that he hasn't won nor lost any significant amounts at Full Tilt's nosebleed tables. Well, that was until yesterday when he took on Gus Hansen at the 2-7 Triple Draw and the FLO8 tables. They started the session at the 2-7 Triple Draw tables and "The Great Dane" took the young Swede for about $100k until things took a big turn...

After playing 2-7 Triple Draw for about an hour, Blom and Hansen moved over to the FLO8 tables and battled for about three hours. The match was dominated by Blom from begin to end, and Hansen decided he had had enough after losing $605.6k to Blom, who ended up as the biggest winner of the day with a $504.5k profit. Hansen continued playing against other regulars after Blom had left the tables, but he never managed to make a comeback and called it a day when he was down $762,026 - about $600,000 more than Thursday's second biggest loser online: "1III1III1III" (Hac Dang is rumoured to be the man behind the "barcode" account at PokerStars).

Viktor "Isildur1" Blom continued to overturn his recent downswing with a $390,897 win in the last 24 hours.
After just 376 hands the Swede was able to top the daily leaderboard ahead of "donthnrmeplz" and "Johnbest" who banked $135,223 and $73,788, respectively.
Suffering at the hands of negative variance in the last 24 hours was "Trueteller".
The online grinder dropped $225,831 to end the day as the biggest loser ahead of the "wilhasha" (-$167,527) and Kyle "KPR16" Ray (-$167,024).

 xxxperv08/06/2013 12:02:46 GMT
and why do I give a shit?
 Macubaas08/06/2013 17:44:04 GMT
500k is nothing for Viktor but of course it's good that he has more bullets to enjoy us with other high stakes battles.

I already knew Gus's bankroll does not look so good, and frankly i do not understand why he continues to pay these two games since there he lost the most.

With Viktor "Isildur1" Blom taking a break from the virtual felt there was room for Hac "trex313" Dang to move into top spot on yesterday's high stakes leaderboard.
After indulging in some late night PLO action, the American pro managed to bank $305,034 to finish the day ahead of Harry "Schoitl" Casagrande ($91,420)

Pretty interesting to see the Dang brother back on action of poker sites.

Last time i heard from them they said that they want to quit poker after both of them won about 5 mil dollars. I wonder what happend to make them play again. Not sure if you guys know but it seems that barcode might be also Hac on stars...

An uninspiring day at the virtual felt saw "Johnbest" top yesterday's leaderboard with a profit of $89,474.
While the five-figure haul is comparatively low compared to recent results, the win was enough to put the online grinder ahead of "no_Ola" ($44,628) and "hotmark777" ($24,981) in the daily standings.
On a day of relatively small wins, "lima81" topped the loss leaderboard with a deficit of $95,000. That figure was enough to put them above Rob "Vaga_Lion" Akery who dropped $44,748.
 Sorin88811/06/2013 06:20:22 GMT
Harry "Schoitl" Casagrande top the daily leaderboard with a profit of $325,464, yesterday.
Having raked in more than $300,000 over the course of 2,389 hands, Cassagrande was able to finish his session above Niki "RealAndyBeal" Jedlicka ($202,307) and Hac "trex313" Dang ($123,536).
Feeling the force of the yesterday's top performers and suffering tough losses were Rob "Vaga_Lion" Akery and Viktor "Isildur1" Blom.
While Blom hit his first bad patch for a few days and dropped $265,204, Akery topped the loss table with a deficit of -$358,421.

i wunder if they know the value off money these day's they play whit a lott off money like it is pocket change.
maybe its better to pay for an addiction center instead off winning and losing each day
me personoly dont look at those MORON's they spend that money like it is nothing
and the more they have ,the greedier they will be ,iknow what i will do whit 50k
i would pay my police fine's so that i have a normal live instead offlooking over my shoulder
 jomull5701/07/2013 11:08:09 GMT
half a dollar every day would do Big Smile . i would real love a go with the pros but i would never be able to afford it or be good enough to win. but i would still love to play a game whit them just for fun Smile
