If winning a million dollars is cause to celebrate, then what does one do when one loses over a million dollars?
You could ask Full Tilt Poker “Professional” Viktor “Isildur1” Blom as this past month the Swedish pro was continuously seen hitting the self-destruct button at the virtual tables spewing massive losses totaling over $1.1 million.
Throughout May Blom was seen grinding on a number of FTP games including the 8-Game, Triple Draw, Omaha and Hold’em tables; however it was only the Omaha Hi/Lo and Hold’em sessions that paid dividends after finishing with $330,866 and $86,620 profits respectively.
The story was very different on the Triple Draw and PLO tables. He burnt a whopping $847,831 playing Draw, and adding to this, he suffered another $595,293 loss on the Pot Limit Omaha tables. Blom also found himself a loser of over $100k at the 8-Game tables sealing his fate for the month of May.
It’s not the first time Blom has been dabbling in losses tipping the $1 million mark in a month. Just 6 months ago, in November of last year, he racked up a gut-wrenching $2,132,506 loss. Despite that thought, he ended up finishing the year with a $542,796 profit. So, while Isildur is still deep in the red for this calendar year, there’s still plenty of time to make that up.
In fact, with the month of May behind him, Blom is ready for a June Bloom. According to HighStakesDB, Blom kicked off the new month with a big-time rebound of $338k.
Money in, money out.
