In a brand new interview, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom talks about his two SCOOP titles, his very first World Series of Poker this year, how the high-stakes scene online has been after Black Friday, and more.
Viktor Blom on...
his very first WSOP this year I'm really looking forward to going to Las Vegas, playing in the Main Event, and just experiencing what it's like to be there. I haven't quite decided which events I'm definitely going to play yet, but I'm under pressure to decide. I talked to a lot of other players in Monte Carlo recently about what it's like over there and it sounds full on, so it will be cool to actually experience it myself.
