High-Stakes Online Poker: Ben Sulsky Crushes Viktor Blom For $1.37M: HSDB

Pair Of Gamblers Throw Heavy Blows This Week


According to tracking data from HighstakesDB, Ben Sulsky won more than $1.3 million from Viktor Blom over the past 24 hours or so, in one of the most epic matches of the year.

Blom reportedly got off to a quick start in their session, winning $300,000. However, Sulsky quickly turned things around across the four tables, and within a few hours was up more than $1 million. The pair were playing nosebleed stakes of $400-$800 pot-limit Omaha.

Sulsky’s lead didn’t hold, as within 1,000 hands Blom had put things back to about even. Then Sulsky went on a huge heater, bringing his profits for the match back over $1 million.

When it was all said and done, Sulsky finished up $1.37 million.

According to HighstakesDB, there were 130 six-figure pots in the ferocious session, with the largest being a $400,000 cooler where Sulsky flopped top set against Blom’s bottom set on a pretty dry flop of KHeart Suit 10Diamond Suit 3Spade Suit. All the money went in right then.

Blom’s horrific day came just a day after he won $1 million.

Sulsky was one of the biggest losers on the year until crushing the Swede. The New Hampshire native was the biggest winner in the online poker world in 2012.

I've been reading these updates for awhile now and, forgive my ignorance here, I am failing to understand why they are posted. I understand that there are large sums of money involved, but are they not within the confines of normal variance? Blom wins a million on Tuesday and then loses it on Wednesday.
