Viktor Blom's 2013 started with an insane heater at the Full Tilt Poker which saw him up over $5m after a few short weeks at the online tables.
As has often been the case for the Swede though, what goes up soon goes down, and so it has proved again. According to HighStakesDB.com, Blom has dropped over $3.5m during the past few weeks, including an $850,000 drop over the past week.Of course being up over $1.5m before the middle of February is none to shabby but it could have been so much better for the 22-year-old.Also in the red in February are Patrik Antonius (down $523k), Ben86 ($413k) and Johnbest who dropped $287k in just five sessions at Full Tilt.Rui Cao is the biggest online winner this month. The Frenchman is up $717k with Seb86 (up $457k) and Alexonmoon (up $437k) also enjoying a winter warmer.Join Blom at the Full Tilt tables with a first deposit bonus of up to $600.
