Viktor Blom wins $1m in One Day of Online Poker

2015-05-03 10:11 by Olsdog

One of the swingiest players in online poker was back in action as Viktor Blom took on some elite Omaha Hi-Lo players. And the results were a smashing success since Blom has won over $1 million this weekend so far.

The bulk of his winnings came in a $1k/$2k Limit Omaha Hi-Lo game, which featured the likes of Patrik Antonius, Kyle Ray, Matt Ashton and Jason Mercier. "Isildur1" was also able to add another $57k through high stakes Triple Draw games that were running.

Despite the huge cash infusion, Blom still finds himself down overall at PokerStars. According to his HighStakesDB graph, the $1 million profit brought his career losses up from $1.53 million to $553k.

This is a far cry from his peak profit of $1.65 million, which is where he sat in January 2012. But maybe the million that he just earned is a sign that he's ready to break out of his long-term slump and start making some serious money.
