Online Poker Pros in an Upswing for 2013

January 10, 2013

Online poker sensation Viktor “Isildur1” Blom has had good luck this year. Within the first few days of the year, he had already won around $1 million playing online poker at the newly re-established Full Tilt Poker, only to win another $3 million by the ninth day of the year, making his 2013 winnings total more than $4 million. The Swedish pro is the biggest winner to play at the online poker site since it reopened back in November of last year.

Unfortunately fellow Full Tilt Poker pro Gus Hansesn’s luck has not been as good this year. Hansen has lost another six figures since the New Year, sitting on losses totaling more than $3.3 million since November.

Blom has made most of his money playing limit Omaha eight or better, pot limit Omaha, and limit deuce to seven triple draw, winning a massive pot from Scott “mastrblastr” Seiver, but he also crushed Phil Galfond and 25-year-old Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky from New Hampshire, the most profitable online player of 2012 (on all sites), who was up about $50K for the new year that has resulted from less than 10 sessions before Blom got a hold of him at the $400/$800 PLO tables.

Another big winner from last year, Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene is also in the black for 2013.
