Viktor Blom Playing Live Cash Games at WSOP
Finishes in the Money Friday in $1,500 Six-Max Event
On Friday, Viktor “Isildur1” Blom cashed for the first time in an event at the summer World Series of Poker. Later in the day after busting Event No. 16 ($1,500 six-handed no-limit hold’em) in 151st for $2,706, the online pro sat down for some live $50-$100-$200 pot-limit Omaha in the Rio’s cash game room.
Blom stacked Lenaghan for about $5,000 after rivering a full house on a board of 10 9 5 A 9. Blom had the 10 9 in his hand. Lenaghan mucked without showing.
The PokerStars sponsored player sat with a large stack of $100 bills and an asortment of chips, and appeared to have everyone covered other than Rast. The game is uncapped. Big-bet games at the Rio have been up to $500-$1,000 in stakes.
Blom is down nearly $1.5 million this year in online cash games, according to HighstakesDB. However, the 21-year-old Swede has won about $1.7 million in tournaments so far in 2012.
