Blom adds another $475,800 to his bank account
Monday January 14, 2013 : HIGH STAKES POKER : REVENGE FOR GALFOND, BUT BLOM STILL PROFITS (Update)
Blom adds another $475,800 to his bank account
The weekend ended on a high note at the nosebleed tables on the Full Tilt Poker site as Viktor Blom kept riding his almost two-week long wave of success by logging on for another exhilarating 17 hours of online poker, taking on anyone with the confidence and bankroll to challenge him on a spread of poker types.
But in fact it was Phil 'OMGClayAiken' Galfond who ended the day with the biggest profit at $507,800 on the Triple Draw and FLO8 tables, thanks to contributors like Blom and the luckless Patpatpanda, who dropped $282,000 in just three hours. Other losers in the session included KPR16 and Follow The Hawk.
That said, Blom still managed to play for around 17 hours and emerge at the end of the endurance session with another profit of $475,800, prolonging his extraordinary run of big wins and taking his earnings since the beginning of the year to around $5.5 million...and counting.
It could have been higher - at one point the young Swedish pro was up $1.1 million, but encountered another devastating downswing towards the end of his long day which cost him $600,000.
The High Stakes Data Base reports that Blom's main victim in the latest session was Alex "IReadYrSoul/Kanu7" Millar and unfolded on the $300/$600 NLHE tables, where the unfortunate Millar ended up handing over $704,000 to his opponent in just 90 minutes of intense action, with Blom winning 7 of the 9 six-figure pots.
The match was further affirmation of Blom's versatility, even when facing highly experienced players - Millar was the biggest online NLHE winner in both 2011 and 2012, according to the HSDB site, yet Blom handed him his biggest ever defeat.
Next on Blom's hit list was old foe Ben Sulsky, who has seen his bankroll ravaged by Blom in recent days . After a short discussion on stakes, the two settled on a single $250/$500 table PLO contest that extended to an exciting two-and-three-quarter-hour clash which Blom dominated despite Sulsky's best efforts.
The match ended with Blom taking down the biggest pot of the session at $401,600, giving him an overall profit at Sulsky's expense of $273,000.
The win brought Blom's profit for the day to $1.1 million, but instead of logging off he insisted on playing on for a further eight hours....and that's when his massive $600,000 downswing kicked in.
High Stakes Data Base reports that his FLO8 and Triple Draw action appeared erratic and unfocused, leading to him losing significant amounts to SallyWoo and Galfond and reducing his overall profit on the day to a still-impressive $475,800.
But, as HSDB notes: "Even after his downswing, due to his NLHE win, Isildur1 is now the biggest winner at the new Full Tilt at PLO, NLHE, FLO8 and 2-7 Triple Draw."
Following Galfond and Blom as the day's biggest winners, other players boasting six-figure profits on the day included Gus 'The Great Dane' Hansen on FLO8 and Triple Draw ($352,000); and SallyWoo ($250,800) with much of it won during Blom's downswing.
