According to highstakesdb, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom was up a six figure amount yesterday before he took on Alex "IreadYrSoul" Millar at Full Tilt Poker's $400/$800 NLH tables. The two played two tables for just about 45 minutes (approx. 200 hands) and Blom ended up losing $425k to Millar.
The main reason for Blom's big loss was that Alex Millar took down three pots of +$200k (the three biggest pots of the day). Here is how the biggest one was played out:
IreadYrSoul bet $2.7k from the button and Isildur1 raised to $9.6k. IreadYrSoul called. The flop came down A76 and Blom bet $12,800. IreadYrSoul called. The turn card was the 6 and Isildur1 checked. IreadYrSoul bet $22,550 and Isildur1 called. The 3 completed the board. Isildur1 checked once again and IreadYrSoul shoved his remaining $176,836. Isildur1 called with his last $83,299 and IreadYrSoul turned over K10 for a flush. Isildur1 didn't show his hand (any guesses?) and IreadYrSoul took down the pot of $256.5k.
Alex Millar, who was down over $200k before playing Blom, called it a day with a sweet $216.6k profit (the second biggest winner of the day - the biggest winner was "samrostan" with $301.7k) while Blom went to sleep when he was down $269k.
7-6 would give him a full house and lots of cash...5-6 suit makes a little sense, but how can you not be afraid of a flush or even a full/higher kicker?. He probably thought he read a bluff of some sort. Obviously was wrong
"MalACEsia" managed to edge ahead of "Rhje" on yesterday's high stakes leaderboard with a $250,253 profit. Over the course of 421 hands the online pro managed to bank a rare win and finish the day just under $40,000 ahead of his closest rival. Although "Rhje" was unable to top the daily leaderboard, he has managed to bank $1,929,462 in the last 30 days which makes him the year's fifth biggest winner. At the other end of the high stakes spectrum, "proudlikeagoat" and "HelicopterBen82" finished as the day's biggest losers with $353,917 and $296,385 deficits respectively.
Gus Hansen and Viktor "Isildur1" Blom decided to test their 2-7 Triple Draw and Omaha 8 skills last night and when each of their sessions came to an end it proved to be a wise choice. At the close of play Hansen topped the daily leaderboard with a profit of $302,655, while Blom finished second with a $252,525 win.
Like I've said this guy (Blom) is unreal and now we can all watch, he'll play again within the next week and win all of it back plus a few 100 thousand to boot. What's really weird is to look at Blom he usually appears to have been on a three or four ay binge by looking at him.
The trials and tribulations of Victor Blom. This kid is quit unreal in the way he gambles and i dont think there has ever been a player like him before. I look forward to reading more about this phenom
