High-Stakes Online Poker: Viktor Blom On Big Downswing As 2013 Winds Down

Swede Has Less Than Two Weeks Left To Go Red For Year


Poker pro Viktor “Isildur1” Blom is ending a vicious year in a bad way — on a significant downswing. The Swede has lost more than $3 million since sometime in November.

The year has truly been a perpetual roller coaster for him. He reached a high point of more than $5 million in earnings during the summer, before nearly giving it all back. It then went on a big upswing, and here we are with just two weeks left and he’s nearing the red once again.

He has just $666,209 in profits on the year now, according to HighstakesDB.

Below is a look at who is having the best and worst months of December to close out the calendar year. Stay tuned to for a full end-of-year recap on Jan. 3.
