Tuesday March 18,2014 : PROFITABLE WEEKEND FOR SWEDISH POKER ACE
Isildur1 cleans up on the FTP nosebleed tables.
The Swedish online poker ace Viktor Isildur1 Blom enjoyed one of his huge upswings over the weekend, adding a further $1.6 million to his bank account after a relative quiet spell in recent weeks.
The High Stakes Data Base reports that the PLO, 8-Game and 2-7 games at Full Tilt Poker were more than favourable for the young Swede, enabling him to take $450,000 off red-hot online players like ragen70, Gus Hansen and Kagome Kagome, following that with a $211,000 coup on FakeSky playing the 8-game tables.
Blom was back at the virtual felt again Sunday, confronting Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond on the $300/$600 PLO tables and harvesting a further million dollars after some spectacularly audacious high-stakes poker.
Other big weekend winners included Gus "The Great Dane" Hansen, who made a $450,000 dent in his reportedly $16 million of red ink entries.
