Viktor “Islidur1” Blom – In Omaha, The Highs Are High And The Lows Are Low

Blom's ledger looks distinctly different depending on his choice of Omaha.

It’s no secret that Viktor “Isildur1” Blom is not shy when it comes to a punt on the cards, and so it will probably come as no surprise that when playing online the hyper-aggressive Swede chooses the action junkie’s haven – the Omaha tables.

This past month the young 23-year-old millionaire, who shunned the 2014 World Series of Poker this year because he prefers the Swedish summer, smashed through the nosebleed online Omaha Hi/Lo tables for a profit over $520K bringing his yearly profits, in this specific style, to a mega $1,735,374.

While we can all applaud such a seemingly magical display of profitable poker, the story in the contrasting style of Omaha Hi is not so elegant. The 2012 SCOOP Event 5 Omaha Hi fifth place finisher lost just under $392K playing on the Full Tilt Omaha Hi cash tables leaving his yearly Omaha Hi stats a shady $795,536 on the down side of zero.

Additionally, Blom is also $1.8M+ down playing Triple Draw this year, nursing an online cash game deficit of over $951K for 2014 across all styles so far.

Maybe Blom should stick to Omaha Hi/Lo where he has been a consistent winner.
