Blom is Back!

December 12, 2011

After taking a three-month break from poker, Swedish online poker phenomenon Vikto “Isildur1” Blom is back. After 21-year-old Blom disappeared back in September from PokerStars, rumors abounded about whether or not he had some dispute with the online poker site or had even possible moved to another site.

Others speculated that Blom had taken up with another Swede, sharing an online poker account, only to become elusive once again. Back in January of this year, Blom finally revealed his identity at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) after being unknown since his emergence on Full Tilt Poker in September of 2009.

None of this, however, was the case. Blom reappeared at the PokerStar tables to play mostly at the $100/$200 Pot-Limit Omaha games when he experienced a very successful 12-hour online poker session with no less fervor than before his sabbatical. He managed to successfully wrangle with Terken89, Jeans89, Phil Galfond, and FakeLove888 (rumored to be Patrik Antonius, famed Finnish online poker star. Blom also took $241K form VietRussian.
By the end of the session, Blom was up more than $600K.
