The action at PokerStars highest stakes hasn't calmed down even though Christmas is just a few days away. And last week we got to see Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, Ilari Sahamies and other poker wonders battle it out on PokerStars nosebleed tables.

Blom made an amazing comeback on PokerStars 2 weeks ago and won an amazing $1,5 million in 2 days, which also made him one of the biggest winners this year. But Blom ran out of luck last week and lost $867,2126. A lot of money, but he's still about $500k plus this month and also one of the biggest winners.

Posted on 09 June 2010 by "T".

The finnish poker pro Ville Wahlbeck, 34, had a fantastic 2009 with over $1 million in winnings from different live tournaments. He ended up second (after Jeff Lisandro) in the WSOP ranking and he was voted the best live player of 2009 at Nordic Poker Awards. Ville Wahlbeck is one of the most successful poker players ever from Finland. Many compare him and his success with finnish poker giants such as Patrik Antonius and Juha Helppi.

Ville has now signed a sponsorship contract with PokerStars and will from now on represent them in different tournaments around the globe. Let's hope that Ville gets a warm welcome from the rest of the PokerStars Nordics (Peter Eastgate, Johnny Lodden, William Thorson, Mats Sundin and Sami Selio) and that his success at the poker tables will continue.
