Isildur1 Down $250k Since Joining PokerStars

Viktor “Isildur1” Blom joined PokerStars on December 7th, 2010 and almost six months down the line is currently showing a loss of -$247,696, according to HSDB.
During his time spent playing at the world’s biggest poker room, Isildur1 has seen his profits rise as high as $500k and as low as -$400k.
Breaking the figures down further, it would appear PLO has been responsible for most of the Swede’s volatility and losses, with his 6 month range varying between $357k in profits to their current $436k in losses.
On the other hand, Isildur1’s NL game has only ever dipped by $40k during January and has continued to climb steadily ever since to its current profit level of $188k.
Viktor “Isildur1” Blom is considered to be amongst the best No Limit heads-up players in the world, and when he joined PokerStars a series of mini-challenges known as the Superstar Showdown was arranged to show-case his unique talents.
These have proven to be a popular attraction for PokerStars, as well as a lucrative venture for Isildur1. In total, he has defeated 7 out of 8 challengers for an overall profit of $351,486.
Despite showing a total loss of -$247,696 at PokerStars so far, the departure of some of the top US pros from the site since April 15th could likely see Isildur1’s profits go into the black once more.
Starting April down by $400k, Isildur1 has managed to reclaim around $150k over the past couple of weeks to reduce his loss to $250k for the year.
Helping Isildur1 on his way was an impressive $183k winning session on Tuesday playing 1,576 hands of PLO againstBen “Sauce123” Sulsky, adiprene1 and gavz101.
Viktor “Isildur1” Blom had not been especially active since the US clampdown, but railbirds might now see a lot more action from the exciting Swedish pro as he starts to take advantage of the new dynamics in the online poker industry.
