Posted on 24 January 2012 by "T".

After a terrible losing streak last weekend, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom took a break at 16:00 on Monday. It didn't take long before people started speculating in whether or not the young swede had cleaned out his PokerStars account. But at 01:00 am on Tuesday he returned to the $50/$100 and $100/$200 Omaha tables and continued playing.

Things went much better for him then, and after about 3,600 hands against several regulars at the nosebleed tables he got away with a $560,000 profit. Most of the money came from Phil "MrSweets" Galfond, who lost about $350k that night.

"I need to work on my all-in game." Galfond wrote on his twitter yesterday.
