 Isildur1 Viktor Blom

Isildur1 Viktor Blom, the noted online poker high stakes phenom, won big money at the PokerStars PLO tables only to lose it all back plus interest to "Ilari FIN" Sahamies Wednesday.

205*128 Mad Month

Sahamies took Blom for $482K, $473 of which was at a single table.

It has been a chaotic 48hrs for Blom who had during the course of yesterday had at one point been $200k down before staging a $500k turnaround at the 6max tables before the days end - only to lose that all back in the early hours to Ilari FIN. During his comeback Blom took $400k from 1-ronnyr3, $164k from Toweliestar and $90k from RealAndyBeal.

As you would expect, the biggest hands of the day all came courtesey of Ilari FIN and Isildur1, with Isildur picking up the two biggest pots of the match - not much of a consolation for Blom after Sahamies total demolition of him I would expect.
