  • PokerStars Pro Isildur1 Reveals Identity

    Tuesday, January 18th, 2011 by t2admin

For over a year now everyone in the online poker world has been wondering who Isildur1 is and we’ve finally found out who the Swede was during the dinner break at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event on Day 1B. Isildur1 shocked the poker world when he came from nowhere and grinded his bankroll into millions by playing against some of the best high stake players in the world such as Tom Dwan and Brian Hastings.

Isildur1 was able to win millions in a short amount of time on the high stake tables, but once everyone started following the young Swedish poker player, they picked up on how he plays. Several players were able to beat Isildur1, which ended up causing him to bust his entire bankroll and disappear from the poker world for a little bit. Recently Isildur1 signed a sponsorship deal with online poker giant PokerStars and thus his identity has now been revealed.

PokerStar.net decided to set-up a heads-up match during Day 1B of the PAC Main Event between Bertrand Grospellier and Isildur1. When the young Swede walked out to take his seat in the heads-up match it was revealed that Isildur1 was Viktor Blom. Many people had assumed it was Viktor Blom after awhile, but there was no concrete evidence that pointed to Isildur1 actually being Viktor Blom.

In an interview Viktor mentioned that he was glad to reveal his identity because most people knew already anyways and it didn’t really make a difference. Viktor isn’t worried about losing some of his high stakes action by revealing who he is and he plans on playing in a lot of European Poker Tour Events this year now that everyone knows who he is. Blom thinks that he’s the best online heads-up no Holdem poker player in the world, but he wants to improve upon his tournament game this year.

Viktor Blom is only 20 years old and has been able to take the online poker world by storm the past year. Blom should grow into one of the best poker players in the world as long as he can keep his bankroll under control. Viktor is an extremely aggressive poker player and is known for his massive upswings and downswings. Viktor is a great example of how successful you can become by grinding the poker tables and moving up the limits in a short amount of time.
