October Recap – Viktor “Isildur1” Blom Wins $1.8m

After winning $2.7m in August and losing back $490k in September, Swedish high stakes sensation Viktor “Isildur1” Blom was back in the +7 figure club in October and ended as the month’s biggest online winner by far with a total profit of $1,814,257.

After his losses in September, Isildur1 had sensibly dropped down in stakes to rebuild his roll and he finally moved up to the higher, high stakes on 1st October where he won a total of $212k at the PLO, 2-7 Triple Draw, and FLO8 tables which you can read more about here.

After dropping back a little over the next few days, Isildur1 topped the leaderboard once again on 6th October with a big $408.7k at PLO, with over half coming from a heads-up $200/$400 match against Ben “Ben86” Tollerene, and the rest coming from the $100/$200 ring games.

Things got crazy for Isildur1 a week later when he enjoyed some of his biggest wins (and losses) of the year. After winning $560k on Sunday 11th, most of it from the $200/$400 ring games, he promptly lost half a million the very next day after dropping $400k to cumicon back at the $200/$400 PLO tables and a further $149k on Tuesday. However, once again the Swedish phenom was able to bounce back with a huge $830k PLO ring-game win on Wednesday 13th which put him up close to $4m for 2015.

After a smallish $70k loss the following day, Isildur1 then enjoyed six-consecutive winning days, adding another $800k to his bankroll, topping the daily leader board on three separate occasions.

After one losing day, Isildur1 hit new heights on 23rd after winning $412k in two heads-up 2-7 Triple Draw matches against thecortster and RaulGonzales. Ironically Isildur1’s biggest pot of the month came the next day during what turned out to be a big losing session against cumicon:

A huge cooler for cumicon who flops second set to Isildur1's bottom set. It's looking like a big pot for cumicon until Isildur1 hits quads on the river and takes down this $256.6k pot


Isildur1 hit his October peak of +$2.15m on 28th October after wins at the PLO, FLO8, 2-7 Triple Draw, and FLHE tables but dropped a little in the last couple of days of the month against his current PLO nemesis, cumicon. Despite these losses, a $1.8m month meant that Isildur1 ended October up over $4.6m for 2015.
