Blom’s Blossoming Year So Far

Blom’s Blossoming Year So Far

Monday, 7 January 2013

Viktor “Isildur1” Blom might not be in the Bahamas defending his Super High Roller title this year but that doesn’t seem to be worrying him at the moment.

Despite triumphing in the event last year and banking over $1.2 million for the win the Swede announced on Twitter over the weekend that he’s perfectly happy staying at home and waiting for the NBC Heads-Up Championship.

One reason for Blom’s attitude is probably the fact he’s banked over $2 million in just seven days. The mindboggling haul has put him firmly atop of the high stakes leaderboard for 2013 and with five winning days in a row it doesn’t look like his upswing has finished yet.

Indeed, since returning to Full Tilt Poker Blom has enjoyed a run that’s reminiscent of his glory days when he emerged on the scene and destroyed the game’s best player and banked over $7 million in just a couple of months.

However, his run was soon ended by the likes of Brian Hastings and Patrik Antonius. Since then he’s been struggling to keep his bankroll at a steady level, with multiple spin ups often ending in disaster.

Variance certainly seems to be smiling on him at the moment though, but with a new week on the horizon it remains to be seen if he can continue winning at the same incredible rate.
