Rivalry Brews Between Isildur1 and urnotindangr

A new rivalry seems to be brewing on PokerStars, and not too surprisingly, it involves wunderkind, Viktor “Isildur1” Blom. His latest foil looking to get a piece of him has been Scott “urnotindangr” Palmer, and the duo has been engaging in some notable heads up bouts as of late with Blom getting the best of his new sparring partner.

Over the weekend, the two locked up for just 745 hands but for Palmer, it was sheer disaster. The two played heads up $50/$100 Pot Limit Omaha with a twist, mandatory pre-flop three betting, which essentially turned the game into $300/$900 PLO. At the conclusion of the battle, Blom had padded his bankroll with $620K of Palmer’s money, a win that pushed Blom’s profits at over $800K since joining the site.

However, it wasn’t smooth sailing for Blom since that encounter. The duo locked up again yesterday and carried a session into the early morning hours, the next day! When it was all said and done, the had played for over 17 hours and played a whopping 7000+ hands playing heads up at up to six tables at once. About halfway through this particular marathon, Blom was practically on poker life support, down to just $25K on one table. Just when it appeared he was about to blow a full half a million dollars for the session, he came roaring back with a vengeance. He doubled up to $50K and split the amount to two tables. From there he just kept smashing flop after flop, putting more and more pressure on Palmer, who earlier on, had become so bored with the contest that he was also playing 7 other full ring tables in addition to the six with Blom. Blom was able to break out the money back to four tables and eventually back to the original six. In a span of about 8 hours, it was a $1 million swing as Blom finished up over $400K.

This last session reportedly has pushed Blom to over $1 million in profits since joining the PokerStars ranks. On the flip side, Palmer is still maintaining profitability. Between his accounts at Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars, he is still roughly up $800K. A couple more sessions like the last one with Blom could conceivably drop him into the red.
