January 5, 2013 : BLOM'S POKER ROCKET RIDE CONTINUES (Update)
With just five days of the New Year gone, Swedish poker ace has already earned $1.2 million
Swedish online poker pro Viktor isildur1 Blom's major online poker heater continued this week, with the young ace pulling in another $700,000 from seasoned nosebleed players on the Full Tilt Poker virtual high stakes tables.
Only five days into the New Year, Blom is already up $1.2 million to the excitement and delight of his online railbird followers.
The HighStakesDB.com site reported earlier that Blom took home $564,000 on New Year's Day, but on January 2nd took a $117,000 hit on the 2-7 Triple Draw tables in a clash with Scott Seiver.
That didn't deter him at all, and he was back at the Full Tilt tables wreaking havoc on the Omaha HiLo tables, taking prodigious sums of money off presiding champ SallyWoo. In just 1 hour and 40 minutes and 257 hands he took $257,000 off the hapless Woo, and added further to his profits from Sebastian Sabic.
According to HSDB, Blom is currently the top earner on Full Tilt.
