Posted on 18 September 2012 by "T".

It has been very quiet about Viktor "Isildur1" Blom in the past few weeks.

Posted on 18 July 2012 by "T".

The Finnish poker pro Ilari Sahamies has been running extremely well in the past few days. Last Saturday he scored a $367k profit, and two days later he walked away with a $444 profit in just under 600 hands. After these two sessions, Ilari was up about $50,000 on PokerStars this year. However, it doesn't seem like the winning streak is over yet as he won another $181k last night...

Most of these winnings came from a two-hour session on a $200/$400 Pot Limit Omaha table against regulars such as Bernsden12, Phisherman32 & Theo J. In total, the Finnish poker guru played for about four hours yesterday, and he took down the 3rd and 4th biggest pots of the day on PokerStars.

After 9 levels of play in the LE Cannes Croisette Casino, the field of 180 players had been squeezed down to a final table with 9 players. In a big lead is no one else than Sam Trickett with 713,500 chips. Trickett, from UK, has had a fantastic tournament year with 2 big cashes at Aussie Millions in January, and in total he has won over $3 million dollars this year. If Trickett takes home this final table today, he will take home another €238k!

But it won't be a walk in the park for the British poker pro as there are some amazing players on the final table today. One player that most probably will be his toughest opponent though is Ramzi Jelassi from Sweden. Jelassi has been around the live tournament scene since 2005 and has managed to take down quite a few tournaments all over the globe.

High Stakes legend "Martonas" back at the tables

Posted on 02 August 2010 by "T".

Do you remember Martonas? For those who don't remember him, I can inform you that he's from Sweden and used to play high stakes at Full Tilt Poker over a year ago. When Martonas started showing up at Full Tilt, he won about $2.5 million in less than 2 weeks time (most of it from durrrr) and create headlines all over the poker world. But it didn't take long before he lost it all again (most of it to durrrr) and disappeared from the scene shortly after.

Many thought that we would have to wait for a very long time before another unknown player like Martonas would show up and play against the world's best. However, most people forgot about him almost straight away when another unknown swede entered the scene and broke all the records. You know who I'm talking about, right? :)

Video: Isildur1 wins $800k from Cole South!

Posted on 10 March 2010 by "T".

Yesterday, the mysterious Swede Isildur1 and Cole South started playing $100/$200 PLO (Pot Limit Omaha) on several tables. Then they moved on to playing $200/$400 and at last $300/$600. This was probably Isildur1's best session so far against Cole South as he ended up winning about $800,000. It wasn't all about who took down the biggest pots in this session, it was more about Isildur1 playing his very best game.

Its great to see that Isildur1 has been doing so well since the comeback. It seems like he have learned something from the mistakes he did back in 2009, when he played too long sessions and easily went on tilt. Maybe he's playing so good and focused this year because he's staked by someone who gives him expertise coaching (Tony G??!!)?
