It’s been an incredible few days for last year’s PokerStars SCOOP main event winner after some serious rungood on the 8-Game, Triple Draw and FL Omaha Hi/Lo tables lead to a $1,078,478 windfall.
Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, the 23-year-old Swedish pro started last week with a $25,967 deficit playing 8-Game before a mammoth upswing on Sunday netted him $252,534 in profit. However, the 6-day story that unfolded over on the Triple Draw tables made for an incredible roller coaster of a week.
Check out Blom’s chart over at HighStakesDB.
After a $251,066 Triple Draw profit on Tuesday, Blom gave $43,051 back on Wednesday before storming back the next day with a $114,312 win; so far so good.
Nonetheless, disaster struck just before the weekend when the hyper-aggressive Swede was eventually crushed for $457,776 playing 5 handed versus “Trueteller”, “samrostan” and German regulars “SanIker” and “Kagome Kagome”.
Luckily losses don’t seem to affect Blom as was proved over the weekend after unsurprisingly pulling back $405,906 playing $1k/$2k, $1,5k/$3k and some monstrous $2k/$4k stakes mainly versus Sebastian “taktloss47” Ruthenberg.
In between Triple Draw and 8-Games plays Blom had ventured over to the Omaha High/Low tables for 2 sessions of head-banging poker versus “Carlooo13” who handed over $537,104 to the Swede.
Blom also took an additional $44,348 from the PLO tables, for good measure, during what has been an incredible 6 days leaving Blom with a 7-figure upswing.
Despite the cash grab, Isildur still finds himself in the hole to the tune of $460K in 2014.
