Viktor "Isildur1" Blom continues to be the king of swings in the high stakes PLO games on PokerStars. After winning $271,000 from Rui Cao yesterday, the Swede lost almost all again to Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky.
Viktor "Isildur1" Blom continues as the uncrowned king of swings, as the aggressive style which brought him stardom again and again sends the Swedish youngster up and down on the cash game leader boards.
Blom, who last week entered an overall profit for his 2011 PokerStars
games for the first time this year, yesterday clashed with Rui "PepperoniF" Cao in the latest of countless encounters between the two at the $50/$100 PLO tables.
Cao has so far held the upper hand for many of the matches, but yesterday the French-Chinese PLO expert was delivered a serious blow as he dropped more than $271,000 to Blom in 1,883 hands, according to Highstakesdb.com
"Isildur1" was according to the site in control of most of the duel, and after having been fairly even for the first 1,000 hands, the Swede fired up the engines to take home the big win and a small piece of revenge following many losing sessions to his PLO nemesis.
The evening, however, didn't end there for Blom, and instead the seemingly inexhaustible young star went on to face another longtime regular, Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky on six tables of $50/$100 Heads-Up PLO.
"Isildur1" once again quickly gained the lead by around $100,000 against Sulsky, but as the match progressed beyond the first 500 hands, his luck suddenly ran out and little by little Sulsky fought his way back into profit.
Gradually taking control of the game, "Sauce123" eventually managed to completely turn around the score, and once the dust had settled after 1,642 hands, he was all of a sudden up by some $242,000.
The big swing leaves "Isildur1" with a small $30,000 profit following one of the most hectic days at the PokerStars PLO tables for a while, whereas Sulsky could retire as the biggest winner of the day with profits of $275,047 all in all.
Blom may be kicking himself for now quitting the games earlier to the tune of what would have been his biggest score for months, but he will now have to settle with his three buy-in profit - good enough to leave him in an overall profit of the year of $30,970.
