Online Poke Phenom Isildur1 Still on a Sick Roll:  Wins $1.33 Mil Tuesday

They don’t get much better than Viktor Blom (AKA Isildur1) in the world of online poker.

On Tuesday January 9, 2013, Blom won an amazing $1.33 million at Full Tilt Poker against top players Phil Galfond and Ben Sulsky. 

Some of the highlights from Blom’s matchup against Sulsky a la HighStakesDB.com:

Viktor must have not believed his luck when Sauce bet into him on the river just as he'd made the stone cold nuts - $428.5k pot.

Isildur1 was actually a 55%-45% favourite to win this pot when the money went in but Sauce's two pair hold to take this $304.4k pot.

Isildur1 turns top full house and gets paid off by Sauce1234 in this $247.5k pot.

Isildur1 gets a little lucky to hit his flush on the river to take this $204k pot.

You know Sulsky’s gotta have a serious headache today.

Blom wasn’t quite done as he went on to take another player, “Alexonmoon”, for a cool $89.2k.
