Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom on Fire With Another $317k Online Poker Win

The Swedish poker wunderkind is on fire these days, winning yet another $317k.

That’s the take Viktor “Isildur1” Blom walked away with over the weekend playing against Great Britain’s Alex "Kanu7" Millar.

Blom engaged in an eight hour $100/$200 NLHE heads up marathon match with PokerStars leading NLHE money winner for the past two years.

Blom showed he still has what it takes to crush the best at heads up hold'em as he ended a resounding winner, taking over $238k from Millar. At one point Blom was over $350k to the good in the match but Millar finished strongly before time was called on their fascinating encounter.

This match also accounted for nine of the days ten biggest hands, according to HighStakesDB.com. 

Blom’s winnings are taking place on PokerStars, the same site that announced this past week had severed its sponsorship arrangement with the Swedish pro.
