Isildur1 Wins Pokerstars SCOOP Main Event and Another Million Dollars

By , Rakeback.com Executive Editor

Cash game superstar Viktor “isildur1” Blom has just won the Main Event of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP).

First place paid over $1m and adds an online million dollar score to the $1.25m he won in last year’s live PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. In online cash games this year he’s also won not far short of a million, but with Viktor, a million in cash is easy come easy go.

At the startling age of 23 he has been in all ten of the largest heads up cash pots in online poker history. As a virtual unknown, barely out of his teens, he battled with the greatest players in the world, often two at a time across up to eight virtual tables.

His opponents at the SCOOP final table were no fish. When it got down to the last two, he was faced by Noah “Exclusive” Boeken a tournament specialist who presents poker programs on Dutch TV.

Noah was a PokerStars Team Pro until early last year and has won over $1.2m in live events and much more online.

The final hand was a bit of a cooler, as Noah flopped top pair on a board which gave Isildur1 the straight. Inevitably, with two such aggressive players, all the chips went into the middle and although Noah picked up some outs on the turn, they failed to fulfill their promise. $803k made a fair consolation prize, so there will be no tears from Boeken.

 The final hand in full was:

  • Exclusive (1965609 in chips)
  • Isildur1 (6734391 in chips)
