Isildur1 Has A New Adversary: urnotindangr

March 3, 2011

Team PokerStars Pro Viktor Blom, otherwise known as the infamous “Isildur1” and his latest adversary Scott “urnotindangr” Palmer have been at it at the high stakes tables recently. Palmer has been trying his hand at Blom, but alas, Blom has been the better of the two. Last weekend the duo played 745 hands at the $50/$100 PLO with mandatory pre-flop betting with three re-raises, making the game more like $300/$900. The battle ended in Blom’s favor. In fact, after it was all said and done, Blom was $620,000 richer, making Blom’s profits more than $800,000 since he joined Stars back in January.

However, the story doesn’t end there. Blom and Palmer met again Tuesday, playing into the wee hours of the morning. The session went on for 17 hours and lasted more than 7,000 hands carried out across six tables at once. At half point, Blom was down to about $25,000 at one table and there seemed to be little hope for him until he double up and went back up to two tables. Palmer had meanwhile become bored with Blom and was multi-tabling seven other cash games on top of the six he had going with Blom. But Blom came back after another eight hours and finished with well over $400,000.

Now Bloom is up more than $1 million since signing on with PokerStars and revealing his identity at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. Palmer though is still up as well, to the tune of about $800,000 between PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker activity. But if he keeps messing with Blom, within weeks, he could actually be in trouble.
