Viktor "Isildur1" Blom Now Up $2.2m In 2014

Viktor "Isildur1" Blom Now Up $2.2m In 2014Poker is a swingy, roller-coaster of a game full of all sorts of surprises and last year after being up a total of $5.23 million, 23-year-old Swedish pro Viktor “Isildur1” Blom eventually closed out the year with $586k in profits. This year, however, Blom seems to be charting a steadier course and is currently $2.2m to the good, without having yet endured one of the sickening downswings traditionally associated with the high-stakes online pro.
For the whole of last week, Blom only played a total of seven sessions but it was still volume enough to see him book $186,402 in profits for the week, $173,300 of which was earned in yesterday’s session. On Sunday, it took Blom just 12 minutes to rack up $74,000 playing $500/$1000 CAP PLO against Bttech86, before heading over to the 8-Game tables where he bested Alexander “PostflopAction” Kostritsyn over two hours to the tune of $99,000.
Not surprisingly, Ben “Bttech86? Tollerene finished the week’s second biggest loser on Full Tilt, down $112,555 overall, with Tyme2gamb0l111 losing the most down $115,706 over 10 sessions.
Full Tilt Poker’s other sponsored ambassador, Gus Hansen, also had his first winning week in 2014, and managed to book a slim $6,805 profit over 12 sessions consisting of 310 hands. The ‘Great Dane’ is currently down by -$1,524,187 this year, and -$16,396,932 overall since first playing on the site back in 2007.
Here are some of the results of other noted players so far this year on Full Tilt; Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene up +$1,560,046, Dan “jungleman12” Cates +$259,684, Isaac “luvtheWNBA” Haxton +$257,472, Ben “Sauce1234” Sulsky -$193,583, and Patrik “FinddaGrind” Antonius -$303,590.
One of online poker’s biggest ever winners, Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond with $8,162,657 in winnings since 2007, has been absent from Full Tilt’s high-stakes action of late, and when contacted by, replied:
“Due to a number of personal and business things coming up, I’ve been stuck in the US since Xmas, and probably will be the rest of February. I’m eager to get back on the felt as soon as I get the chance.”
