Isildur1 is Full Tilt Poker’s Biggest Winner to Kick Off Re-Launch

Swedish poker pro extraordinaire Viktor “Isildur1” Blom kicked off the re-launch of Full Tilt Poker by cashing out more than any other player within the first 24 hours.

HighStakesDB.com broke it all down.

*The opening three hours went satisfactorily for Blom as he carved out a c.$33k win, tweeting along the way "at $50/$100 PLO now at FTP. it feels so good, i have been waiting for this for sooo long".

*Next, Blom jumped onto some $100/$200 NLHE tables.  Blom took Alex "Kanu7" Millar for around $30k over a 2.5 hour four tabling session to finish his days play.

*Day two continued in the same vein with Blom winning another c.$17k at some $25/$50 PLO before once again hopping on board for some $100/$200 NLHE where things didn't go quite according to plan as he faced off against German player Sanlker.   Blom lost a substantial amount during these sessions but managed to win back some of that money to show a $75k loss.

*Blom opened up two more NLHE tables where he took IReadYrSoul for another $34k in 145 hands of play and things were soon to get worse for the young English pro. After a 4 or so hour rest the two resumed their battle, this time playing for over 350 hands in a 1.5 hour session with Isildur1 wrestling another c.$100k from the coffers of Millar.

Blom had tweeted earlier in the day: "i missed you ‪@FullTiltPoker! i am jumping into a 50c/$1 to get things going! come find me!"
