2013-04-05

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.
