After winning $564.k on New Years Day, Blom suffered a relatively minor blip on the second, losing $117k playing 2-7 Triple Draw against Scott "mastrblastr” Seiver before coming back with a vengeance yesterday.

Not content with bashing up one of the biggest triple draw winners at Full Tilt, Blom then took on of the biggest winners at the Omaha Hi Lo tables of late, SallyWoo.. Over the next hour and forty minutes Blom proved why he is currently up over $1 million at the FLO8 tables since November as he crushed the high flying SallyWoo for $275k in 257 hands.

Sebastien "Seb86” Sabic was another of Blom’s victims by night’s end. also reports that Isildur1 is the biggest moneymaker on the newly relaunched Full Tilt Poker website.
