Victor Blom represents more than he actually is. Sure, he’s a fearsome foe at the tables and a face of Full Tilt Poker. But he’s also a representation of the dream of many poker players – work hard, play harder and one day glory can be yours. From the shadows, an unknown Blom, known only by his screenname Isildur1, seemingly appeared out of nowhere to take on the best players on the planet. Quite often he did this all at the same time…and he won. It’s a story that most poker players may not be able to relate to, but can aspire to. We’re just thankful that Isildur showed us it can happen.
