Viktor “Isildur1” Blom is a Swedish high stakes pro that currently resides in London England.
Signed with PokerStars and became a Team Pro in December 2010. There was more than a lot of speculating about Isildur1's identity, prior to their Caribbean Adventure live event that took place in the beginning of January 2011, when he revealed himself to face fellow team pro Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier in a heads up match.
Since this time, the site has promoted Isildur1 in the PokerStars SuperStar Showdown, which sees him take on challengers in heads-up matches. Most of the games involve multi-tabling four tables of $50/$100 NLHE, and the winner is the player who’s ahead after 2,500 hands. Some of the players who Blom has taken on include Dan “Jungleman12” Cates, Daniel “KidPoker” Negreanu, Isaac “philivey2694” Haxton, Terje Augdal, Tony G, Eugene Katchalov and Scott “urnotindangr” Palmer
When playing cash games on PokerStars Blom plays mostly PLO but every now and then you'll find him at the NLHE tables.
Everything is relative, it's rare to find passive players at these stakes these days, one thing is certain, Isildur1 is one of the looser and more aggressive players on PokerStars, and he puts in a lot of hours on more tables than most. These facts usually implies bigger swings, ups and downs, strikes and gutters, something which Isildur1 graphs indicates too.
In January 2012 Blom won his first major live tournament, the PCA Super High Roller event, during PokerStars' Spring Championship of Online Poker in May the same year, where he managed to win two events back-to-back.
