High-Stakes Online Poker: Viktor Blom Wins $1 Million On Tuesday

Swede Now Up $4.45 Million On The Year


Viktor Blom won more than $1 million on Tuesday, according to tracking data from HighstakesDB. He played a mixture of pot-limit Omaha, no-limit hold’em and deuce-to-seven triple draw, logging more than 1,000 hands against some of the best in the world.

He reportedly crushed the likes of Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene, Phil “Polarizing” Ivey, Kagome Kagome and Alex “Alexonmoon” Luneau yesterday.

Blom is up more than $2.1 million over the past three days.

The Swede is now up $4.45 million on the year. He was up more than $5 million at one point in January, only to give most of it back before going on this recent upswing.

Blom’s wasn’t playing as of early Wednesday morning in the United States, but he will almost surely be back soon to continue the high-flying action on Full Tilt Poker.

In addition to online cash games, Blom could be in attendance at the World Series of Poker, which begins later this month in Las Vegas. He was at the Series last year, playing a handful of events and grinding some of the live cash games at the Rio.

In tournaments, Blom has won about $2 million. He is up about $2.2 million lifetime in Full Tilt Poker cash games. He made his historic debut in 2009.
