Viktor Blom Profits Hit $3.44M at PokerStars

Viktor Blom Profits Hit $3.44M at PokerStarsBefore the 2017 WSOP got underway in May, Swedish high-stakes pro Viktor Blom was on a year and a half  losing/break-even streak in which his winnings at PokerStars had roughly been halved since their October 2015 peak of $3.25 million. Each year, however, Blom likes to steer clear of the prestigious tournament series in order to take advantage of a diminished presence at the online cash games, and the decision this year has proved to be a shrewd one, too, as his profits have now reached a new all-time high on the site.
According to his stats on High Stakes DB, the 26 year-old pro is currently showing $3,444,758 in profits, and was online cash poker’s most profitable player in June with $1.1 million in winnings. The trend has likewise continued into July with Blom having won an incredible $575,000 at PokerStars on Monday alone.
Blom’s impressive day begun with a two-hour session of $1,000/$2,000 2-7 Triple Draw in which he relieved Germany’s donthnrmepls of $155,300 of his money, followed by a further $80,000 from Russian’s Timofey Kuznetsov playing $200/$400 Pot-Limit Omaha. Blom’s day subsequently got significantly better after sitting across two tables of $100/$200 Pot-Limit Omaha against Cobus83, as at the end of almost 3 hours of play Blom had added another $370,000 to his bankroll.
As a result, Viktor Blom has now been rewarded for the perseverance he has shown during his year-and-half poker drought, with the $1.9 million he recently added to his bankroll coming over just the past two months.
Despite mostly shunning the live tournament scene, Viktor Blom still has $1,725,567 in winnings to his name from 11 career cashes. Nevertheless, the lion’s share of the money came after claiming victory at the 2012 PCA $100k NLHE Super High Roller Event for $1,254,400, with roughly half of all his live cashes also recorded in the same year. This also includes a 14th place finish at the $50k The Poker Players Championship for $105,235.
