If you've followed the high stakes games on PokerStars lately, you probably know that the action has been great and that Viktor "Isildur1" Blom has won some serious cash. The fact is that the Swede has won over $3 million since the end of August and is currently up $3.7 million this year (Hands: 194,493 hands; most played game: Draw).
According to HSDB, Blom's most recent big win occurred on Sunday. He started the day playing 8-game for nine hours against Phil Ivey, who ended up losing $41k to Blom. The big results for Blom came early in the evening when he played $200/$400 PLO against Ike Haxton, Jeans89, Sam Trickett, and other regulars.
After five hours of play across five tables, he was up an incredible $559k for the day! The biggest win of the PLO-session occurred at table Lorcia, where he took down a $206.5k pot against Team PokerStars Pro Isaac Haxton. This is how the hand was played out:
"Wruuuum" folded from UTG, Blom bet $1,800, Ike Haxton raised to $6,400, small and big blinds folded (Jeans89 and 1-ronnyr3), Isildur1 re-raise to $20,200... and Ike Haxton called.
Blom was first to act and bet $41,395, Ike Haxton went all-in for $82,549, Isildur1 called.
