Swedish high-stakes poker pro Viktor Blom aka Isildur1 has successfully managed to win almost $287K from the first seven days of August 2016. It was three times that Isildur1's name topped the daily leaderboard charts with five-figure wins, and he was among the top 7 players daily this August to end the week with a total of $286,704 in winnings.

August 1 (Monday) - $57,200
August 5 (Friday) - $87,700
August 7 (Sunday) - $35,000

Isildur1 could have ended the week with $400K on his name if only he had stopped at his highest point on Saturday, when he was battling a five-hour $50/$100 PLO match against TILTMENOT which ran from mid-morning until the early afternoon. Isildur1 was up over $130K in a heads-up with TILTMENOT, but he lost $100K of that back before the end of the session. At the end of the day, however, Isildur1 did profit at the PLO tables with another win, earning himself a total of $32,600 after some more mixed-game victories.

It was the 8-Game tables wherein Isildur1 won the largest amount of his overall wins, winning more than $1/4m at stakes from $100/$200 up to $400/$800.

The biggest pot of the week was found at the $100/$200 PLO tables, in a match between Sirens and fjutekk.
To earn the $286,704, Isildur1 put in almost 14.5K hands in the past 7 days. Only he was able to pull off six figures in overall winnings.

Below is a list of the biggest (online poker) winners in the first week of August 2016:

This guy continues to be an absolute phenomenon at the tables. I have never read about another player like him. I hope he continues to play and we continue to keep on reading about him

His up and downs are verry crazy, but it seems, that he don´t have a shutterhand Big Smile And which losts did he have before in Juli? It sounds verry nice, but the truth have to sides in my opinion... But for Stars he was a big rake machine.

Winning around $300K in 7 days must be pretty amazing even for the high-stakes specialist like Viktor Blom. It is nice to see him doing well. How old is he now? 30-something? What is his net worth? How much tax does he have to pay on his winnings?

It has been a long time since we heard from him why is that because he was not playing or he was loosing i think we will never know about this.

It is very nice winnings for a month but this guy and all the high stake players don't really know what is money.

I would really like to know if he is really a winning player on the long run. Question Question

You can play a week and relax for months. Not that they are doing this.

Tilt-me-not. Dude apparently choose a nick which not suits him well to be quite honest.
But nice to know Viktor is not in the red this month alone as opposed to me.
Wish I could sit at two hundred bucks a bb plo tables as well.
