Online poker professional Viktor “Isildur1” Blom recently won two online poker tournaments held as part of PokerStars’ prestigious Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP). Owing to his recent poker success, his total poker winnings have shot up to $400k.

Blom is known for his exceptional talents at the online poker gaming tables. His spectacular performance at PokerStars SCOOP during the past few days has attracted a lot of attention. He won the 2-M: $215 NL Hold’em event, a 2-day event that had a player field of 8,240 participants and a prize pool of over $1.6 million.

When he reached the final table of this event, he was the chip leader, a fact that he used to his advantage to win a cash prize of $247,200, which happened to be his first victory in online poker.

Blom also participated in yet another 2-day online poker tournament. This time, it was the $530+ Rebuy NL Hold’em 6-max event with a guaranteed prize of $400k. At the end of the first day, Blom had the third largest stack of chips at the table, and made his way up from a total field of 484 players to reach the final table of the event. At the final table, Blom found himself the player with the largest chip stack. Eventually, he proved to be too formidable for his opponents, who were eliminated from the table one by one, leaving Blom with the coveted title and an incredibly large prize of $160k.

Ever since his entry into the online poker gaming world, Blom has amazed the online poker gaming community. He began his eventful online poker career as an anonymous player, playing high stakes cash games at Full Tilt Poker. He made the online poker community sit up and take notice by defeating the invincible Tom “durrrr” Dwan, considered to be among the world’s best cash game players.

Shortly thereafter, Blom became part of the pro team at PokerStars and he was introduced to the online poker gaming world as “Isildur1” in the year 2011. The current year has turned out to be a very eventful one for Blom. He began by winning the $100k Super High Roller tournament at the prestigious PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA), adding a cool sum of over $1.2 million to his bankroll. His PCA win also happened to be his first major live poker tournament success.
