January 8, 2013 : ONLINE POKER PHENOM NOW UP $2.4 MILLION IN SEVEN DAYS
Isildur1's huge heater continues at Full Tilt
Only a week into 2013, Swedish online poker phenom Viktor Isildur1 Blom has earned over $2.4 million on the nosebleed tables at Full Tilt Poker to become the site's biggest earner since relaunch.
On Sunday he took another $344,000 off several top players, boosting his total profit for the week to $2,443,311 in 7,903 hands, according to the High Stakes Database site.
Blom's heater kicked off in the new year with a massive $564,000 win against Alex Kostritsyn, which was followed by a slight dip (see previous InfoPowa reports) before the young Swede recorded two winning sessions worth around $700,000 each playing 2-7 Triple Draw and crushing experienced players like Scott Seiver and Alex Luneau. His extraordinary run also included a notable Omaha 8 victory against pack leader SallyWoo
Luneau was back for a second dose Sunday, and Blom was happy to oblige, taking him for $360,000 in a heads up game, HSDB.com reports.
