Viktor Blom Still Not At World Series Of Poker, Stuck In $1.1 Million Online Poker Downswing

Cash Game Star Has Stuck To Online Game So Far


High-stakes combatant Vikor Blom has not played at the World Series of Poker in 2013, but instead has been throwing around money on the virtual felt overseas.

According to tracking data from HighstakesDB, he is on a $1.1 million downswing, losing about a third of his profits on the year over the past few weeks or so. He is currently up just under $2.5 million for 2013, but was once up more than $5 million (back in January).

In 2012, the Swedish poker pro made his debut at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. This year, he has not showed up, and there has been no indication of whether he will at all.

In late May, Blom won an online tournament for $1,096,200.

Gus Hansen, Blom’s high-stakes colleague, has showed his face at the Rio Convention Center. Hansen is on a downswing that dwarfs Blom’s, as the Danish pro is down nearly $10 million lifetime on Full Tilt Poker over his lengthy career on the poker site.
