Viktor Blom Drops $3.6M Since Mid-January

Profits Slipping Away For Swedish Poker Pro

Was it inevitable?

Viktor “Isildur1” Blom managed to crush the competition on Full Tilt Poker during the first two weeks of January, accelerating at light speed to a profit of more than $5 million on the year. However, since then, the young poker pro has dropped about $3.6 million of those winnings, according to tracking data from HighstakesDB.com.

He currently has just around $1.5 million in earnings for 2013.

The past seven days were some of the worst for the Swedish poker pro, as he lost more than $800,000 at the virtual tables on the site he endorses.

Other big losers on the week include Patrik Antonius and Ben Tollerene.

On the flip side, Rui Cao, Sebastien Sabic and Alex Luneau all won big. Antonius and Cao have been involved in a heads-up challenge of sorts.

He should politely ask Mr Scheinberg for Phil Ivey's old super user account.
