Viktor Blom Up $3 Million At PokerStars In 2015August 28, 2015 5:39 pm
Viktor Blom, 24, had already been doing well at the virtual cash tables this year, but August has proved a bumper month for the young Swedish pro after going on a massive $2.63 million upswing at PokerStars. As a result, Blom is currently up an impressive $3,004,562 on PokerStars so far in 2015, and $1,507,995 since first playing on the site back in January 2011.
That’s not the whole story, though, and since Full Tilt started appealing more to recreational players and dropped Gus Hansen and Viktor Blom as the site’s sponsored ambassador, Blom has continued playing at Full Tilt. However, his results on the other Amaya owned site have been proving less positive, and he is currently down -$1,367,244 in 2015, and -$4,740,045 since 2009.
As a result, Viktor Blom’s overall results between the two sites puts him in profit by $1,637,318 in 2015 so far, and -$3,232,050 throughout his career, with his yearly break-down as follows:
Blom’s best cash game results on Full Tilt have been playing draw games, which has netted him +$3.57m, but his worst game is Omagha High PL (-$5.92m). Interestingly, on PokerStars Blom’s most profitable game is Omagha Hi/lo which has won him $1.2m, while Omagha High PL had been his worst game and he was -$1.49m until his August upswing. Since then, Blom’s Omagha High PL results have jumped to $384.58k in profit.
Although not a big tournament fan, Viktor Blom has cashed in at 10 live events since 2010, amassing $1,721,834 along the way. Blom’s biggest score accounts for the major part of those winnings, though, which was an impressive victory at the 2010 PCA $100,000 Super High Roller Event for $1,254,400. While it is not known exactly how much Blom has won from online tournaments, in 2013 he did take down the PokerStars SCOOP Main Event for $1,096,200. Discussing the difference between cash games and tournaments, Blom told pokernews last year:
“I enjoy them[tournaments], but the first day is tough for me. I don’t have a lot of patience, but when you go deep I think it’s more fun to be in a tournament than in a cash game.”
