Saturday, 28. January 2012

Isildur1 stepped onto the scene, seemingly out of nowhere, and took the entire online poker world by storm. Maintaining complete anonymity, this player quickly entered the biggest online cash games and was involved in some of the largest pots every played online. In a matter of mere months, this player enjoyed massive upswings as well as some pretty dark days.

Numerous columns and countless forum threads were written regarding Isildur1, yet his true identity still remained a closely guarded secret. There was wide speculation whether he was a seasoned professional player or some young upstart with a great deal of moxy and skill.

Finally, earlier this year, Isildur1 revealed himself at the 2011 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) in The Bahamas to be the young Swedish poker pro, Viktor Blom. Blom has since joined Team PokerStars and continues to take on the biggest names in poker in an eclectic range of stakes and games. Blom also continues to be as exciting as ever and attracts a great deal of fans that watch him play at PokerStars.

Blom also plays at live tournaments. He finished 16th in the 2010 WSOPE £10,000 No Limit Hold’em Main Event and walked away with $51,806. Earlier this month, he cemented his position as one of the world’s best players when he came in 1st in the $100,000 Super High Roller event at the 2012 PCA and walked away with the $1,254,400 top prize.
