Viktor "Isildur1" Blom Up $100k in Last Two Days at PokerStars

The biggest winner at PokerStars high stakes cash game tables over the past couple of days is Viktor "Isildur1" Blom who has earned a $100,510 profit since Monday evening.

Isildur1 was the second biggest winner in Monday's games after a successful late night outing at the $200/$400 PLO tables where he played a single table 40 minutes heads-up session against Cobus83. In 122 hands Isildur1 made a $41,297 profit. He also took down the biggest pot of the past two days from this session:

Cooler upon cooler here as Isildur1's AAxx goes up against Cobus83's KKxx. After some heavy betting preflop Cobus83 makes a set of Kings on the flop. All the money goes in with Cobus83 way ahead. An ace on the river, however, sends this $65.5k pot to Isildur1


The biggest winner from Monday's games was Limit Hold'em specialist Yoghii who won $45,980 after a busy afternoon at the $200/$400 FLHE tables, with much of his profit coming from games played against Debilne_Ucho and Azram.

Isildur1 went one better yesterday and topped PokerStars high stakes leaderboard with a $59,213 win from a single 1hr 50 min evening heads-up match at the $1k/$2k 8-game tables against German pro RaulGonzales. Isildur1 started the match brightly, taking a $44k lead after twenty minutes, only for his opponent to fight back with a $60k upswing over the following 20 minutes. The match was really settled over the next half an hour as Isildur1 hit a +$100k upswing to take a $90k lead in the match, although RaulGonzales was able to peg Isildur1 back a little over the final half an hour, leaving Isildur1 with a $59,312 profit from 346 hands played.
