After a heavy losing session on Wednesday that saw him drop half a million dollars, Viktor Blom was back to winning ways on Thursday.
Many on the rail must have been fearing the worst when Isildur1 dropped over $350,000 in quick time to Kyle "cottonseed1" Hendon. The Swede soon recovered from that early setback though and put in a dominant performance against Tom Dwan at the triple draw tables which saw him take Durrrr for $300,000. He was even more dominant at the heads up triple draw and PLO tables against Ben 'Sauce1234' Sulsky, crushing him for a whopping $730k.All told, Blom was up over half a million dollars on the day, taking his earnings since the start of the year past the $4m mark. It's like 2009 all over again.Update – Isildur1 has continued his phenomenal start to 2013, booking another $600k plus profit against Ben 'Sauce1234' Sulsky at the PLO tables. According to HighStakesDB.com, the latest session puts Blom up $4.6m since 1 January and over $5m up since Full Tilt Poker relaunched.The biggest pot of the contest was a $427k monster that saw all the money go in on a 4d8sQh board. Isildur1's 9dJdQdKd needed help against Sulsky's AcAs6d5s and it came on both runnings. A Jh3d on the first running gave Blom top two and the Swede scooped the lot on the second running after rivering a straight.Join Isildur1 at the Full Tilt Poker tables with a 100% first deposit bonus of up to $600.
