Viktor “Isildur1” Blom vs. Daniel Negreanu

It has not been the best of weeks for poker pro Daniel Negreanu.  The Canadian poker pro wrote on his blog that he had been booted from the Los Angeles Crown Plaza Hotel after pre-booking his room to attend a poker tournament.  Over the weekend, Swedish online poker phenom Viktor “Isildur1” Blom crushed Negreanu during a head-to-head tournament on PokerStars.

Blom won $150,000 against Negreanu in just 1439 hands. 

With the impressive win, Blom has managed to eat away at some of his $400K plus losses he’s incurred since joining the world’s largest online poker room, PokerStars, late last year.

Negreanu wrote on his Twitter page:

"This has been pretty disgusting so far. Can't imagine running any worse."

The Challenge was supposed to be divided into two days, however, because Negreanu lost his entire bankroll in one night, that probably won’t happen.
