Yes trolling is stupid but then again its an art too the fact that 20 people get so pissed that they quote and caps BAN with gazillion exclamation marks is also stupid. Just hit report post, type in reason and wait for the ban.

I just can't see investing so much time and trouble and money into a profession and then playing like this.
He must be doing something right. He beat Ivey HU in a 100k event - http://pokerdb.thehendonmob.com/event.php?a=r&n=39509

Ivey, Ivey, Ivey! Blom, Blom, Blom!

Sunday, 26 September 2010

Viktor Blom is just a sick, sick individual. There is no other way to say it. At this juncture it doesnt even matter if he is Isildur1 or not he obviously is but hes still keeping schtum about it because having watched him tear through the field at the 10,350 WSOPE Main Event I am fully prepared to believe that I am watching one of the best No Limit Hold em players in the world. And hes 19 years old!
Isildur1 is famed for his overbets, which he will make for value, as a bluff or for razor-thin value with middle pair. Ive seen five overbets from Blom over the past two days he has been playing and they resulted in three folds and two calls. Two of the three times he got folds; he showed a pure bluff (eight high and one pair on a A-K-9-T board); both times he was called he had the best hand. How you can hand-read so well is beyond me.


Even if he isnt Isildur1, which he is, then the story of Blom90 who he definitely is is amazing as well. He was playing $530 STTs on PartyPoker in 2005 at the age of 15; he ran up a $2,000 deposit to $1,500,000 in five weeks playing heads-up cash before taking out half a million and losing the rest before doing it again. He has a huge stack at the moment and I hope he makes the final table because THAT will be fine TV.


Now, Phil Ivey. Everyone knows Im an Ivey nuthugger and thats because I play poker. He is the best, no doubt about it. As I write he has taken the chip lead after knocking out Nick Schulman and Matt Stout in consecutive hands as well as dropping us down to seven tables. I am praying for an Ivey v. Blom heads-up showdown for the bracelet because that would probably be the best thing Ive ever seen. I could die happy then.
Anyway, no time for blogging theres WSOPE reporting to be done.

Nicolas Levi. He scoops that pot, chipping up to 476,000 in the process and is now in the top 10

The board ran out queen-high with no help for either player, and Cheung's ace-king high is good enough to tally the elimination.

It was an instant pass for Mitchell, but the complete opposite for Blom, who counted out both stacks (they were pretty even at this point, Blom covered probably by only a few thousand) and then sat thinking and occasionally conversing sotto voce with de Wolfe.

Minutes ticked by. Blom was jiggling up and down like he was being shaken under the table.

"I can't tell you what I have," said Blom at one point (only a little piece of the quiet chat which went back and forth). "Why not?" was de Wolfe's response.

Finally another player called the clock on Blom, who seemed a little put out (asking for the dastardly clock caller to be identified).

"You show?" he asked de Wolfe.
"You show?" he got in reply.
"No, just you," said Blom. He folded and got his wish - de Wolfe showed {J-Clubs} {J-Spades}. Blom requested to rabbit hunt the flop but no joy.

Judging from the PN pics, the dude got some style, unlike a whole bunch of other poker players.

Bluffed off a large part of his stack when a guy made a hero call all in on the river with 9s on a xJxQx board.
