In 2007 he finished 9th in the Heartland Poker Tour’s NL Holdem Championship to win $4,057 but in just 4 sessions at Full Tilt Poker that year he had lost $2,185.

Who is Isildur1 on Full Tilt?

Viktor BlomIsildur1 has become an infamous name in the online poker world. The player’s real identity has not been confirmed however it is widely rumoured to be Swedish phenomenom Viktor Blom who has enjoyed great success on the iPoker Network over the years as Blom90. Many believe the reason Blom has denied being Isildur1 is because he would be taxed in Sweden but if it is him he is a 20 year-old playing for millions. Isildur1 shot to fame in 2009 after appearing at the high-stakes tables and challenging anyone who would play with him, he would mutli-table against the pros and played very aggressively. He has spectacular heads-up matches against Tom ‘durrrr’ Dwan and was actually up $4 million on him (at one point he was up around $6 million in total on the site) but unfortunately Isildur1 went on a downhill slope. Cardrunners instructor Brian Hastings took on Isildur1 and in just one session won $4.2 million from the Swede crushing his bankroll however there was a lot of controversary when it was revealed that the Cardrunners team were sharing hand histories and Hastings used the stats to his advantage. Isildur1 also had several epic sessions against Finnish Full Tilt pro Patrik Antonius and the pair were involved in the largest pot ever played online – a staggering $1,127,955 and yet again it was Isildur1 who lost. According to HighStakesDB Isildur1 is down $2.4 million on Full Tilt Poker.

In recent weeks there have been rumours that Isildur1 is playing at PokerStars under the alias ‘grolongo‘ because the player is from Göteborg in Sweden and isn’t afraid to play anyone or at a variety of tables. The player has already taken on Brian “$tinger88″ Hastings, Phil “MrSweet28″ Galfond and Ariel “Vick Is God” Schneller – some of the best in the world.
