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.
