POKER ACE BLOM IN ANOTHER ONLINE POKER COUP
Insane amounts of money again changed hands on the online high stakes tables at Full Tilt Poker Thursday as Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom and Ben 'Bttech86' Tollerene slugged it out in a Cap PLO session that lasted 5hr 40minutes across 4 virtual tables.
The High Stakes Data Base reports that after initially dominating the contest, Blom was forced onto the back foot by a resurgent Tollerene, setting the scene for an enthralling big-money back-and-forth as the lead see-sawed between these two bold and talented poker professionals.
Starting out one-tabling $500/$1,000 the two soon had more tables going and ever higher stakes at risk, culminating in Blom taking his opponent for $1,703,125.
The big win brought Blom back to a positive $4 million balance since the start of the year.
