NVM this is wrong, they have new tables now it seems, anyone here with more info about players on the table with Blom?
We arrived to Phil Ivey's table to see him in a hand with Bojan Gledovic. The two have been going back and forth all day at the top of the counts and another 60,000-chip pot sat in the middle on the board of Ad8d7c 3d 9s . Ivey had fired out 35,000 and Gledovic was in the tank for several minutes. He eventually made the call and then Ivey tabled the A8 for two pair on the flop. Gledovic mucked his hand and Ivey's stack grew to 580,000 in chips. Gledovic dropped back to 650,000.
From middle position, Phil Ivey was in action again with a raise to 10,000. Rudy Blondeau opted to fire out a three-bet to 27,000. The young Canadian was on the button and after the two blinds folded, action fell back on Ivey. He thought for a bit and then slid out a taller stack of chips than needed to make the call, signifying a raise. The amount was 88,000. Blondeau released his hand, dropping to 260,000 and Ivey won the pot.
Wow this blog is unbelievable. The way he writes you can really get into his head and feel like you lived through what he did.
Its hard to think a kid in high school who lives with his parents was playing the best in the world for millions of dollars. At one point in his blog he says that he sat out from multitabling 300/600 PLO to take a piss and came back to find his little sister looking at Justin Beiber videos with his FTP tables minimized. He reluctantly made a deal with her to wait until Justin was finished singing to kick her out of his room and return to bluffing $60,000 stacks.
It seems he really has a knack for writing after reading his blog. He uses vivid imagery and great comparisons, it changed my whole view on the mystery man who is "isidur1".
The writing is so good I wonder if he writes this in Swedish first and then a true author rewrites what he said in English for this blog.
