Online Poker Phenom Viktor Blom Wins $1.7 Million in Under 6 Hours

Online poker sensation Viktor Blom (AKA Isildur1) continued his hot streak this week, beating player Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene for a mere $1.7 million.

The most impressive part in all of this is that Blom made that money in just under 6 hours at the virtual felts of Full Tilt Poker.

Isildur1 had been down more than a million dollars at one point during the Wednesday night session.

Tollerene isn’t the only one suffering a headache this week.

Other losers a la PokerNews.com included Gus Hansen (-$985,889 in 57 sessions/6,325 hands), “samrostan” (-$383,046 in 15 sessions/1,949 hands), “kagome kagome” (-$171,269 in 11 sessions/943 hands) and Sebastien “Seb86” Sabic (-$103,066 in 15 sessions/1,533 hands)
