There has been a noticeable dearth of high stakes games over the last couple of weeks, due in no small part to many of the major high stakes players camping out in Vegas for the duration of the WSOP in their quest to bring home a coveted bracelet. However, for the second year running it seems that the allure of jewellery and the prestige of a WSOP title isn't temptation enough for Viktor "Isildur1" Blom to leave his London apartment for the bright lights of Sin City.

It would seem that  the decision to stay behind is proving successful for the Full Tilt Pro as he is so far the biggest winner in June, showing over $570k profit. Over $100k of that has come from his dedication to the Pot Limit Omaha ring games over the past two days.

On Sunday Blom topped the daily leaderboard with a $73.9k win, mainly from the $25/$50 PLO tables where he played a four hour session, winning over $40k in total from the likes of Doorbread, Follow The Hawk, DEWANI, and anna164.

At the start of the PLO session, Blom was also playing some low stakes 8-Game tables, heads-up against WtFoMFgOAO, where he won just over $14k at the $20/$40 and $200/$400 tables.

The young Swede's final success came from an hour long session of $100/$200 PLO against Follow The Hawk yesterday evening, which added a further $18.7k to his bankroll.

Yesterday saw Blom put in even more hours at the PLO tables, playing 2,807 hands, with nearly 2,600 played at the $100/$200 shallow PLO tables (with the rest at $25/$50 and $50/$100).

His $ profit per hand was significantly lower yesterday, however, as he ended the day with just a $32.9k profit, putting him up $106.8k in the last two days. Saying that, it was still a great performance from Isildur1 as halfway through his 11 hour day, he was down $75k before recovering well during the second half of the day, winning over $100k.

The other noteworthy incident from yesterday's games was a lengthy stint at the tables from Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies at Full Tilt. Sahamies has been playing at PokerStars consisently, but hasn't been seen at Full Tilt for a year. He kicked off his return with a win in yesterday's PLO games, earning $23.3k from 2.6k hands.
