For mere mortal poker players the idea of sitting down to play a cash game session, and getting up a few hours later with $1 million in winnings seems unbelievable, but Viktor “Isildur1” Blom has just done it again.
On August 25, Blom played four tables of heads up Pot Limit Omaha against Sean "WithColor" Rafael.
Seven and a half hours later, the match ended with Blom up $1,088,684 on the day.
Amazingly, Blom’s day at the tables started miserably. After his first few sessions he was down over $400k. In the first two hours of play against Rafael, he dropped $250k—enough to make most players slide effortlessly into tilt-mode. But Blom doesn’t do tilt, the 24 year old has nerves of steel and an ability to disassociate the huge sums of money at stake from the decisions he has to make.
Gradually he pulled it all back. Naturally, the cards began to run better for him, and he went on a huge roll, winning almost $275k in one pot with Full House over lower Full House.
An hour’s worth of the action is already up on YouTube. There’s no commentary, but if you want to learn how Blom does it, it’s well worth some scrutiny.
